Twitter’s Certified Program, which launched back in 2012, highlights products and services from Twitter developers to make it easier for businesses to find them. It’s a stamp of approval, if you will, and it does carry some weight for the third party firms fortunate enough to get the tick.
This week, Twitter has had a big international expansion with its Certified Program, with five new partners joining the flock.
Are you a disgruntled developer who did not fit the new and improved Twitter mold for coveted API access? Maybe you’re still hanging on by a thread, hoping something will change. Or maybe you were cast out like a black cat on Halloween.
Either way, take heart, you red-headed stepchild: there is hope for you yet. Twitter will soon be adding new verticals to its certified products program and that could result in Twitter saying “I choose you!”
Instagram make have been justified in its decision to stop helping users to post their pretty pics to Twitter, but it may have been a foolish move in the game of social media platform dominance.
Pinterest appears to have joined forces with Twitter – or to have at least decided to kneel before Zod. Mwahahaha.
Over on the official blog, Twitter has announced some changes to the way that content will be displayed within certain tweets when they are expanded.
These larger tweets are rolling out as we speak, but, once implemented, submissions from a “diverse and growing group” of media partners” will be larger and display richer content, including snippets from articles, publisher information and more.
Sites that will be using the @anywhere technology on launch will include:
What, no Facebook?
Not a lot of detail on how this is really going to work, and I can’t quite figure out if it’s going to be much more than the bastardised Twitter widgets a lot of folks are already using on their sites.
Still, there’s perhaps a focus here on targeting users that want to consume information on Twitter far more than they wish to contribute towards it, and this is something I’ve been thinking about a lot of late. It interests me, and it’s an area I feel I might have overlooked (and even dismissed) in the past.
Foolishly so, as there will always be more readers than writers, certainly capable ones – often it’s simply that many of the latter are so loud that our senses are easily fooled. And when it comes to noise, the former bear no responsibility at all.
