Twitter is a real-time way of keeping tabs on things, so adding a way to stay in the know for events happening around you seems pretty pertinent.
Bookmarking currently doesn’t exist on Twitter. Users are limited to retweeting or liking tweets to view them later on their timeline. But that’s apparently about to change. As part of the company’s Hack Week, Twitter showed off the prototype for a new “Save For Later” feature that will allow users to read saved tweets later.
Earlier today, Twitter announced that it is raising its 140-character limit to 280 characters for a selected few users as an experiment. Well, if you are bummed that you did not get the expanded tweet limit, here’s a simple hack that will let you tweet up to 280 characters right away.
Twitter today announced that it is trying out a longer character limit of 280 characters across all languages except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. The company is making this move based on the data it has collected which suggests that users would be able to better express themselves when they have 280 characters to write down their thoughts.
Twitter has done a few different things to help with the restriction of 140 characters for its tweets, and now it’s getting ready to roll out a new one.
Microblogging app Twitter has turned into a safe haven for online trolls. So much so that some abusers have forced celebrities and major public figures to leave Twitter on account of their abusive tweets. Twitter is now trying to restrict this by giving users more control over their notifications.
Twitter today announced a major new redesign of its platform on iOS, web, Android, and Twitter Lite. The refresh sees the company streamline its UI and switch to a new typography to make reading content easier.
Twitter, which owns Vine and closed the service down not too long ago, has confirmed a bug briefly exposed a variety of different email addresses and phone numbers.
Twitter and Bloomberg have jointly announced a news network with content streaming directly to Twitter users around the world. This comes on the heels of Twitter’s announcement last week, talking about partnering with media hubs to bring original content for its users. This service will apparently go live sometime during the Fall this year.
If a company has the means, or any means at all, to launch a service for people to watch TV, it looks like they’re going to jump on it.
