One Day Sale on AllTwitter Conference!
The blog didn’t share another piece of news about the update though, one that can be found on the iTunes page: Twitter has cast video services Mobypicture and Vodpod out into the cold, dark Web to fend for themselves (or just, you know, upload their videos somewhere else).
Fortunately, Twitter isn’t something the general public will be using with any regularity five years from now, so maybe they can go live with LinkedIn or something.
So it looks like yesterday’s video post by Twitter’s CEO was no mistake. They sure know how to get the Internets buzzing at Twitter, hmm?
And today we have a snazzy new feature to play with, six-second videos. Third-party video developers would do well to find a new home – and the folks at Tumblr better pick up the pace too, because Twitter is coming for you next.
In case you missed it, Jimmy Kimmel Live has a new 11.35pm timeslot and, as he takes on late night veterans Jay Leno and David Letterman, Kimmel has been doing the full court publicity press this week, with big celebrity appearances by Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Gosling and others on his show.
Last night, Kimmel introduced the third take on his popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” feature, which first debuted last year. In this edition, Selena Gomez, Larry King, Dr. Phil, Simon Cowell, Tom Arnold and other famous folk read one particularly offensive message that’s been sent to (or about) them on Twitter, with hilarious results.
Twitter started rolling out its Facebook-a-like header photos to profiles back in September, and users who haven’t yet implemented this new functionality have until tomorrow (December 12th) to upload a suitable image.
Otherwise, Twitter is going to force the change upon you, and you’ll be left with a default grey box.
Did you ever hope that somebody would make a movie about Twitter?
After all, it worked brilliantly for Facebook with The Social Network, so why not our favourite micro-blogging platform, too?
Well, I have some great news. The first Twitter movie is finally here!
As we’ve mentioned before, Twitter hosts a quarterly Hack Week where employees take time away from their regular work to collaborate and come up with new ideas. Twitter encourages its employees to try new things around the company and work on projects they’re passionate about. Very cool.
This time around, some teams focused on learning coding and the result was another pretty hilarious video.
Twitter has reached its sixth birthday, and to celebrate Twitter-fan Jimmy Kimmel asked some of his celebrity pals to read some of the meanest and (in some cases) really quite offensive tweets that have been sent to them by “fans”, while, for full effect, REM’s Everybody Hurts plays along in the background.
