How much thought do you give to the images you share on Twitter? When was the last time you refreshed your cover photo? The images you use on Twitter go a long way in building your brand – whether personal or professional – and we’ve got some tips for making yours stand out from the crowd.
In early September Twitpic announced that it had decided to shutdown after a trademark conflict with Twitter.
Two weeks later the company tweeted that it would “live on”, reporting that it had been acquired. The mystery buyer was never unveiled.
Yesterday, Twitpic tweeted that it is now, definitely, shutting down, after the acquisition turned out to be a false alarm.
Twitter Cards let users extend the size of a tweet (which is otherwise limited to 140 characters) by attaching larger photos, videos, lead generation tools and other media “experiences”. Cards can provide a nice uptick to engagement and clicks, and they’ve had a good overall response from marketers and brands.
This week Twitter announced the Audio Card, which will let users listen to music directly on Twitter.
Twitter loves to experiment with new features and tools. Many of these add-ons never make it out of the beta stage, and are only ever shown to a small subset of users who test the functionality while Twitter measures the response. Sometimes, however, these experiments go on to become core features.
Remember the stink that was caused when Twitter started showing favorites and other tweets in timelines from people that weren’t being followed? Good news! That’s now a permanent feature.
IFTTT (which is short for “IF This Then That”, and is pronounced like “Gift”, without the “G”) is a super-useful web-based service that lets users aggregate content from a number of different web applications to create simple conditional statements known as “Recipes”.
These Recipes perform a set of actions (known as “triggers”) that you decide based on select criteria. For example, you could configure a Recipe on IFTTT to automatically post the same update to your Facebook Page when you use a specific hashtag on Twitter.
