How to Find Your First Tweet as Twitter Turns 8

Tweet Believe it or not, Twitter celebrates its 8th birthday today! While not everyone was convinced the 140-character social platform would succeed, today’s anniversary certainly proves them wrong. It has now become a place for users to share information, often in real-time, leading to a big change in how we discover breaking news. “Millions of prolific tweeters have made Twitter an exciting, fun and powerful place to connect with others,” says Gabriel Stricker, Twitter’s vice president of marketing and communications. “But each of you had to start somewhere.” Today, “tweet” and “hashtag” are part of our lexicon. Twitter has become […]

Ellen’s selfie sets Twitter record for re-tweets

Ellen’s selfie sets Twitter record for re-tweets

Tweet Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday night? I didn’t, but Lindsey caught some of it. I never see any of the movies that are nominated so I don’t really see the point. fast cash advance online loansproviders every time But, there was something that happened at the awards that captured my attention. At one point during the show, host Ellen Degeneres took a “selfie” with a bunch of actors (I’ve heard that it’s actually called a “groupie,” but you get the idea).

Twitter stock plummets

Twitter stock plummets

Tweet On Thursday, Twitter stock opened at $50 a share, which is down more than 23% of its lowest trading price in the last two months. Wall St. clearly isn’t feeling the tweet. The sudden drop followed Twitter’s fourth quarter earnings report, its first such report since becoming a public company. Shockingly, it had nothing to do with actual revenue, which actually surpassed Wall St. estimates. The drop was due to slow user growth and a decline in engagement. “Expectations were higher for Twitter,” says Arvind Bhatia, an analyst with Sterne Agee. “User growth and engagement are going to be […]

Don’t like your Facebook review video? You’ll be able to edit it soon

Tweet I’m sure you’re aware of the “Look Back” feature that Facebook rolled out to help celebrate the company’s 10th birthday. It’s kind of interesting if you haven’t seen it (I’m sure you have since everyone is posting their video to their news feed even though no one really cares about the Facebook history of someone they played high school basketball with years ago). While it’s a cool feature, many complained that they didn’t like their video. Well, a Facebook rep told TechCrunch that there are plans to add an edit tool – which was supposed to be included in […]

New Facebook Paper app (video)

New Facebook Paper app (video)

Tweet Facebook has just released its new Paper app today. Heard of it? It’s a new way of sharing stories and kind of sort of turning Facebook into a publisher of content. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it and even searched for it in the app store, but it didn’t come up. Apparently, you can search for topics like tech, sports, cooking, whatever, and you’ll get content hand selected from a team of editors. They’ll pull from legitimate publishers, lesser-known blogs and even user posts. Paper isn’t meant to replace the Facebook app on your iPhone, but […]

Facebook punishing pages for putting crap in my news feed

Facebook punishing pages for putting crap in my news feed

Tweet Usually when we get news from Facebook on changes to its news feed it’s something obnoxious. It tends to come across as changes just to make changes and I have to get comfortable using the new format, which can be very annoying. But, this time, it seems like Facebook is making changes I actually agree with. The first set of changes came earlier in the month regarding story bumping, which publishes posts you haven’t seen above ones that you have. Okay, sounds useful. Now, Facebook says that they will start punishing pages that post garbage, while rewarding pages that […]

Facebook increases lobbying budget…hooray?

Facebook increases lobbying budget…hooray?

Tweet As we see more online legislation being presented to Congress such as CISPA, PIPA and PIPA, internet giants are going to want more of a say on these matters. And how do you influence policy? With money of course! And Facebook now clearly wants to be heard in Washington, D.C., as they have increased their lobbying budget some 75% over the fourth quarter of 2012. Based on their lobby disclosure form, Facebook shelled out $2.45 million to lobbying costs in the first quarter of 2013. Yikes. That’s on par with what companies like Microsoft and Google spend. We know […]

How the pink/red equal sign spread on Facebook

How the pink/red equal sign spread on Facebook

Tweet If you’re on Facebook, you surely noticed the pink equal sign on top of a red background that showed up in many posts and profile pages in the few days. It was created by the Human Rights Campaign and it spread like wildfire as people all over the social media network wanted to show their support for gay marriage. I’m trying to remember anything else like it in terms of images on Facebook going viral. Regardless of where you stand on the actual issue, it’s fascinating to look at it from a viral marketing standpoint. “For a long time, […]
