Build a Social Business with the Digital Producer at Anderson Cooper 360°
Much like the Twitter feature we told you about in February, prompting users to “welcome back” tweeps who left and then returned to Twitter, we have another user prompt to share with you: Reconnect.
You probably haven’t seen it, and who knows if you ever will (more on that below), but it’s fun to find out about things before they (potentially) hit mainstream isn’t it?
You’ll remember, once upon a time, tweets were top dog in Google search. And then that relationship dissolved in a sea of vagueness and although you’ll see tweets come up in Google searches today, they’re noticeably appearing after the more Google-y bits of information (like news stories and such, capable of being +1′d on Google+). This is, of course, just as the Twitter Oracle predicted.
But enough about Google, we’re talking Yahoo here. And Yahoo is busy cozying up with Twitter, much to (we imagine) someone at Google’s chagrin who must be thinking, “Maybe Yahoo isn’t as irrelevant as we thought!”
As you’re scrolling through tweets on your phone, do you ever wonder if hashtags like #ILoveYouBut are trending in other parts of the world or if you just live in weird little microcosm?

Do you post about the weather on Twitter? Or check Twitter during extreme weather to get the latest updates?
Twitter (and The Weather Channel) are counting on it. And they’ve devised a way to cash in, while giving advertisers more targeted bang for their buck.
Let’s just hope they’ve thought it through!
Complementing its earlier announcement on new Twitter card options, the microblogging platform is pushing its design enhancements into overdrive with newly announced mobile updates.
And this time they’re rolling it out to Android, iPhone and that entire mobile web at the same time – though you may have to wait a little bit regardless.
