«Twitter is working on camera-first feature that could change the emphasis on the platform from text to video and images, giving advertisers a competitor to one of Snap’s most popular advertising opportunities. […] The new function would combine location-based photos and videos with Twitter Moments around notable events.

«Two myths currently limit our collective imagination: the myth that advertising is the only possible business model for online companies, and the myth that it’s too late to change the way platforms operate. On both points, we need to be a little more creative. While the problems facing the web are complex and large, I think we should see them as bugs: problems with existing code and software systems that have been created by people — and can be fixed by people» – Tim Berners-Lee.

«These dominant platforms are able to lock in their position by creating barriers for competitors. They acquire startup challengers, buy up new innovations and hire the industry’s top talent. Add to this the competitive advantage that their user data gives them and we can expect the next 20 years to be far less innovative than the last. What’s more, the fact that power is concentrated among so few companies has made it possible to weaponise the web at scale» – Tim Berners-Lee.

«In this case, Schafer suspects the use of pro-gun control hashtags like #guncontrolnow are being used sarcastically, particularly since they’re often paired with the anti-gun control links. Since the Twitter accounts Hamilton 68 tracks often target right-wing audiences, Schafer believes the trolls are using the message to attract more eyeballs. ‘That allows them to then push content that is more directly related to the Kremlin’s geopolitical agenda’»

«Ces violences affectent la santé et la vie sociale des victimes, avec la même gravité que les autres formes de violences faites aux femmes. Elles n’ont rien de virtuel. Elles sont pourtant largement tolérées. C’est ce dont témoigne un testing inédit mené par le HCE et ses partenaires en juillet 2017 sur les principaux réseaux sociaux (Facebook, Twitter et Youtube) : 92% des contenus sexistes signalés (insultes, menaces de viols ou incitation à la haine) n’ont pas été supprimés par les plateformes, avec des écarts : 87 % pour Facebook, 89 % pour Twitter et 100% pour Youtube».

Library of Congress

«Twitter has also grown exponentially in the years since the library started its collection. That year, 2010, about half a billion tweets were posted every two weeks. In November, that many were sent each day. The messages are now longer: The company recently doubled its limit for tweets to 280 from 140 characters. Such complications have plagued public access to the archive, too, which is limited while the library works to find a cost-effective and sustainable way to open the archive to the public».

twitter to 280 characters

«During the first few days of the test many people Tweeted the full 280 limit because it was new and novel, but soon after behavior normalized (more on this below). We saw when people needed to use more than 140 characters, they Tweeted more easily and more often. But importantly, people Tweeted below 140 most of the time and the brevity of Twitter remained».

RT and Twitter

«RT may no longer be a Twitter customer now, as the company made clear at the hearings, but not long ago it was a multimillion-dollar sales prospect».
