Twitter offers fantastic insight into what’s happening right now, but can it also be used as a crystal ball to see into the future? That’s the question a recent study may have some answers to.
Francis Underwood probably wouldn’t mind House of Cards spoilers floating around (after all, he could probably use the chaos to his advantage), but Netflix is having none of it: the company has created a spoiler-free way to access Twitter, so the Underwoods’ machinations remain a surprise until you get to the last episode.
With about a billion tweets sent every two days, it’s easy for a photo to go viral and be passed around the world in a matter of minutes. However, this speed of information is a double-edged sword – these photos are often unsourced or completely fake. So how do you know if what you’re passing around is really an adorable kitten, or just a great photoshop job? Ask @PicPendant.
With all of the negative attention, it’s probably no surprise that a parody Twitter account is making waves. What might be surprising is just how polite – and popular – the account is.
Amid the hype and excitement of the Super Bowl (and, increasingly, the Super Bowl ads), Esurance made a bold move: They bought the ad slot immediately following the game, and saved a cool $1.5 million.
Not to let this “spare change” go to waste, the company launched a Twitter contest, with one lucky Twitter user who tweeted the #EsuranceSave30 hashtag winning the entire $1.5 million pot.
This week, the company handed out the cash – and shared the amazing social media statistics that this contest generated.
As much as Twitter is a fantastic place to learn and share information, one of the most exciting things about it is how it lends itself to networking.
New relationships, genuine leads and engaged customers can all blossom from consistent Twitter use. But in order to really shine, you’ve got to be you on Twitter – you have to interject your own personality into your tweets.
