If you read social media publications, then you may have noticed how much everybody is talking about Twitter recently: as it’s getting harder to keep up with Twitter latest news, we made a short selection for of what we thought was worth noting.
In this LongReads episode, we feature 3 articles:
- In a pretty incredible (updated) story for The Daily Best, Bryan Patrick Byrne explains how Twitter fixed a bug that allowed advertisers to target users based on derogatory terms… following his own reporting of that bug a few days earlier: impressive & quick turnaround.
- On TechCrunch, Natasha Lomas highlights how Twitter is using tech tools to quash terror & terrorism-related tweets & accounts.
- Adweek’s David Cohen announces (back to back) two major Twitter live stream: Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion show #TOMMYNOW (yesterday) & the Global Citizen Festival (this Saturday). Two “short reads” that confirm the rise of Twitter as a live platform and a serious competitor on that front for YouTube (which is also live streaming many events).
What’s in it for Social Media Managers: a very clear hint that Twitter is doing some intensive work to improve the platform, as much on the content side as on the features side.
