Twitter Moments are now vertically-scrolling lists

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Back in 2015, Twitter revealed 'Moments,' which are compilations of tweets about a certain topic (usually news-related). After opening one, every tweet would be displayed full-screen, sometimes with an image or video taking up most of the screen.

  

Twitter has quietly changed this behavior, and now Moments are basically just lists. They still have large opening pages, but you now scroll down instead of swiping left to see the tweets.

Twitter’s tweetstorm feature starts showing up in the Android app

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

When 280 characters aren't enough...

Back in September, a developer discovered a hidden feature in Android's Twitter app that would allow you to type out several tweets and queue them to send one by one, making it easier for anyone to launch a "tweetstorm" without having to type and send each tweet individually. Back then, the feature wasn't activated yet, but it now appears to be going live for some users.

Twitter is rolling out the 280 character limit to everyone

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Twitter has always been limited to 140 characters, which is a holdover from its days as an SMS service. However, earlier this year Twitter started making noise about potentially raising that limit. It began testing an expanded 280 character limit in September, and now that feature is rolling out to everyone. Worried? Twitter says don't sweat it.

According to Twitter, fears that a 280 character limit would ruin the brevity of Twitter are unfounded.

Google serves ‘Android Burger’ for lunch in company cafeteria, stays true to its emoji and keeps the cheese below the patty

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Last week, a tweet from a Danish media analyst contrasting Google and Apple's hamburger emoji designs set the internet ablaze. Google's take on the emoji, which places the cheese below the patty, drew the ire of many. Less than 12 hours later, Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded, reassuring everyone that the company would address the matter immediately. While the world waits to see whether Google changes (some would say, corrects) the architecture of its Android hamburger emoji, there is one update to share: Googlers were served "Android Burgers" on Friday – and, yes, the cheese was kept below the beef patty.

Twitter’s new ‘Happening now’ section highlights tweets about important sports games and events

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Twitter is a great place to find out about stuff that's going on right now. In fact, it's often the first place to get news about certain things, as information spreads through the platform incredibly quickly. Understandably, Twitter wants to leverage its position as a place for first-hand topical content, and its latest attempt to do so is a new feature called 'Happening now.'

Twitter is testing a new 280 character limit, allowing crazies to ramble on for twice as long

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

One of the biggest complaints and simultaneous strengths of Twitter is the platform's forced brevity. Whatever you want to say, you only have 140 characters in which to say it. That restriction makes you seriously sit and think about the content of your message. Like it or hate it, now Twitter is testing a larger 280 character limit with a small select group.

Verizon PR exec tweets incredibly insensitive post-hurricane message targeting T-Mobile, deletes it after outrage

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

When you think of cheeky executives in the mobile communication business, your mind probably goes to T-Mobile's John Legere. Whether you love Legere's antics or not, it's hard to deny that he's turned T-Mobile around and made it into a major player. A recent tweet from Verizon executive Jeffrey Nelson shows that he wants a piece of the action; unfortunately, he chose to be brash towards T-Mobile (and other carriers) in the worst possible way at the worst possible time.
