Holy crap, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Even with all of the recent Twitter news I sort of forgot this blog even existed.

May 28, 2010

Twitter recently announced that they will no longer allow in-stream third party ads to show up in any app or service utilizing the Twitter API.

Promoted Tweet Updates

April 30, 2010

It’s been a while since Twitter Promoted Tweets were announced and launched so I decided to take a quick look and see what the original advertisers are doing right now. While there are differing levels of activity and reach it seems that most are still testing the waters. None seem to be going “whole hog” [...]

Twitter Killed by Facebook Social Plugins

When Twitter really started to take off and gain some mainstream momentum almost every Facebook change seemed to be an attempt to emulate some Twitter functionality. Facebook realized that Twitter offered features that people liked and they obviously had no problem stealing peoples ideas. The Twitter envy contributed to the purchase of FriendFeed which allowed them more [...]
