Reading Twitter via the official app at night can be a bit tough, thanks to the fact it hasn’t featured a “Night Mode.”
Earlier this year, Twitter announced its first broadcast partnership deal with NFL that would see the microblogging service stream 10 Thursday night games starting from September 15th. The company managed to outbid the likes of Facebook, Google, and other major companies whilst securing this deal.
One way to know if a Twitter account is legit or not, especially when dealing with pubic figures, is the blue badge next to the handle, signifying it’s “Verified.”
The simplest way to describe textshots is that they’re screenshots containing text. And it goes by different names. Mat Honan called them screenshorts (terrible name I think). The ones posted specifically on Twitter are sometimes referred to as tweetshots.
Twitter wants to be a lot of things, certainly much more than just a social network or a source for breaking news.
Taking a cue out of Snapchat and Facebook, Twitter today introduced #Stickers on its platform. You will only be able to add new stickers to photos that you tweet though, and not use them in your tweets directly.
Twitter today announced some changes related to videos for its service. Starting from today, the microblogging service will allow users to upload videos that are up to 140 seconds long. Up until now, users were restricted to uploading videos that were no longer than 30 seconds big.
With the latest update to its official Twitter client for iOS, Twitter has added support for 3D Touch Peek and Pop gestures in its app. Up until now, the app only supported 3D Touch shortcuts from the home screen.
As rumored, Twitter, today announced that in a bid to let its users express themselves more in 140 characters, the company is removing certain restrictions on this limit. In the coming months, Twitter will be simplifying some of the stuff that counts towards the 140-character limit.
