Twitter is the planet’s largest conversation, and the social media giant has parameters to keep tweets short and sweet. The 140-character limit has become standard in the linguistic lexicon.
Over the next few months, though, Twitter’s giving us a little more space to share our thoughts.
Certain elements that have always taken from the character count no longer will – meaning tweets can be longer.
All this means individual users, organizations and companies will be able to fit more information into a message.
Switching between Instagram accounts hasn’t exactly been instant.
But that’s changed.
Instagram this month released a new feature allowing users to switch between as many as five accounts on iOS and Android apps.
Twitter is rolling out a polling function, offering users a way to tap into the collective knowledge of the Twitterverse.
The new option will appear in the tweet-composing interface.
Many polls surely will ask lighter questions, such as, "Are dogs better than cats?" But this also could be an effective marketing tool.
