Facebook ads vs. Twitter ads is an endless debate but I’ve decided to write my $0.02 about it.
Another hidden gem in Twitter is their Custom Timelines or Twitter Collections Timelines that allow a user to select number of tweets and put them in certain order that can be used as archive for later usage
Once again, another article about Social Media Images. I’ve talked previously about the importance of Creating Ideal Social Media Images and actually created a Free PSD template for all Social Media Image Sizes, this time I will focus only on Creating Ideal Twitter Image With PowerPoint
In previous articles I’ve mentioned that the guys from @Buffer recommended that the ideal Twitter image size is 1024×512 – which is 2:1 ratio
So I took my time trying to get PowerPoint correct inches size in Pixels! as you may know, PowerPoint only works with either Centimeters or Inches, so converting those to Pixels wasn’t fun 😀

Twitter is becoming proactive recently when it comes to “reporting abuse”, it’s clear they are putting effort fighting spam or offensive/abusive language. Though, until last month that effort seemed not enough that Twitter’s CEO, Dick Costolo said in an internal memo obtained by The Verge
We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years. It’s no secret and the rest of the world talks about it every day.
Though, in efforts of improving users’ experience on Twitter, last year the company introduced Mute Users On Twitter. Then in December 2014 a blog post introduced improvement in block and an improved way to flag abusive Tweets, which was released only for a limited group of users.
The “View Tweets Activity” tweet analytics feature is finally on desktop view available now for The Middle East region, a long awaited feature.

It was reported that Twitter Google deal was announced, they agreed to work together once again. Twitter had agreed to provide Google with access to Firehose data, allowing Google to index statuses from Twitter. Previously in 2009, Google had used Twitter Firehose as the core of a new service called Google Real Time Search which was later killed couple of days after Twitter turned off The Firehose.
No one knows why the plug was pulled on the deal , maybe Twitter saw Google+ as a threat?
November 2014 Twitter’s CFO Anthony Noto suggested that Twitter would do more to generate search engine optimization traffic, free traffic from Google and other search engines. Twitter also made a deal with Flipboard and Yahoo! Japan.
