Twitter’s expanding its international advertising program in a big way. Last month the platform granted 12 new markets access to its suite of self-service promotional products, including Promoted Tweets and Promoted Accounts, and this week Twitter has added 11 new territories across Europe and Latin America.
Need a little weekend reading?
We’ve compiled our top ten Twitter stories of the week, which includes 10 reasons why social media is good for business, the history of hashtags in social media marketing, the 20 most popular brands on Twitter, a look at social media’s roots and three content creation strategies that will help your business prosper.
If the thought of sending your 140-character thoughts out into the world has you paralyzed, never fear: there are plenty of ways to use Twitter that don’t actually involve tweeting.
Football – or soccer if you’re in North America – has some 3.5 billion fans across the globe, making it far and away the most popular sport in the world.
That popularity has quickly bled into social media. Indeed, football’s adage that it’s “played by millions, and watched by billions” could equally be applied to Twitter, with the top clubs (and athletes) each boasting millions of fans (and tweets). But which teams are faring best?
People hate change. And lately, with Twitter, that’s become a bit of a problem, as they’re changing pretty much everything.
And according to chief financial officer Anthony Noto, even bigger changes are still to come.
In days of yore (i.e., before May 2014), if you were following somebody on Twitter who was, for whatever reason, kinda bugging you, then you only really had two choices: unfollow, or block.
(Yeah, okay, so a third choice was “deal with it”, but we’re only human.)
Twitter’s internal image sharer, pic.twitter.com, is far and away the most popular way to publish photos on the platform, but that’s a relatively new development. Indeed, in days of yore (Twitter, circa 2006-mid 2011), the only way to share images on tweets was through a third party. And one of those third parties was Twitpic.
