Twitter’s co-founder Jack Dorsey has a little problem: he can’t stay out of the public eye. It’s one of those billionaire problems you’ll never understand.
And this is one of those ‘invasion of privacy’ posts you’ll hate yourself for reading.
Twitter launched its certified products program last August with the goal of bringing “some of the most innovative products and services from Twitter developers to businesses and organizations that need them most.”
This came after throwing a slew of third party developers to the wolves like discarded medieval scraps, so the move was met with muted enthusiasm.
But for those lucky few to be initially selected, it was (and still is) a time to of plenty. And you can now add Offerpop to that list of winning products. You’ll be happy you did.
Did you know the Visual Insights team at Twitter is “obsessed with the patterns that emerge from aggregated tweets over time?” Well, they are.
That explains (to those of us who are paranoid) why the “tweet location” option keeps mysteriously activating itself despite pointed attempts to disable it permanently.
And . . . there’s more.
Yes, Twitter has been up down and all around today. Moving sloooow for many and completely offline (for a little bit) for others.
But not today, SAE! Not . . . yet.
Twitter Music launched strong and took a nosedive, but it’s still clawing for air, apparently.
It has redone its landing page, giving it a fresh coat of paint consisting of alternating images that appear to be taken from album covers.
But can anything really save it from irrelevance?
Love babies? Who doesn’t, really – except maybe cats (babies pull tails and compete with cats for Internet supremacy).
People are sharing their #EvanBabyAndMe pics on Twitter and we thought you’d want to be among the first to get in on the fun. You know, before it goes all Harlem Shake and everyone’s doing it – followed by The Today Show a week later.
Oh and there’s video of babies dancing here that you won’t want to miss! Perfect Friday entertainment.
You know a picture is worth a thousand tweets, right? Well it is.
And if the first picture folks are seeing from YOU is that ridiculous egg avatar, you’ll be facing an uphill battle against absurdity to counter that negative impression.
Wouldn’t it be better to update your profile images to something a bit less spammy ahead of that? Twitter thinks so. And they’ve made it easier than ever to update those pics.
Whenever Dick Costolo speaks, people find deeper meaning in it. Maybe that’s why he likes to stay on point and keep things simple – minimalistic. You know, kind of like how he envisions Twitter running.
Maybe they’ll get a reality show to cover this transformation, like Breaking Amish, but opposite.
