Take Your Twitter Efforts to the Next Level
Industry experts are saying that Twitter is on track to earn up to $1 billion in ad revenue by the end of 2013. It’s become the go-to network of choice for TV shows looking to engage their audience on the second screen, non-profits seeking donations, and local businesses who want to build relationships with their communities. But what does all this mean for you?
Join us during the June 4th AllTwitter Marketing Conference‘s keynote panel to hear from some of the top minds in the Twitter community about where the network is headed, so you can be well ahead of the curve. And even if you can’t make it in person, be sure to tune into our #AllTwitterConf hashtag between 9-9:45am PT to follow along!

If you’ve spent any amount of time on Twitter, you’ve likely received a TrueTwit validation direct message. It says something like “Nelly Nameless uses TrueTwit validation service. Please validate your account.”
If you think this practice is okay, you need a Twitter direct message refresher. And when you’re done reading THAT, we’ll tell you why this “harmless annoyance” (aka TrueTwit) is anything but.
Another win for sports and Twitter:
Golf pro Ben Crane turned to his Twitter following this week to crowdsource a replacement caddie at the HP Byron Nelson Championship Pro-Am in Texas.
One of the announcements Google made this week at its action-packed Google I/O conference was that Google Glass now has an app for Twitter, in addition to apps for Facebook, Tumblr, Evernote, Google+, CNN, and ELLE.
Earlier this month, a tweet from an official Twitter Glass app was spotted, indicating that the roll-out of said app wouldn’t be far behind. That time has arrived.
