Twitter Now Lets You Follow Users Without Joining

Twitter Now Lets You Follow Users Without Joining

Twitter, the one social network that most people love to make fun of before they join it, has always had a problem explaining exactly why people would want to tweet. There’s always the allure of finding out what others are saying on the site easily, but not everyone feels the need or actually wants to tweet themselves. Twitter has finally launched a way to simply follow users without having to sign-up.

Wealthy Web 2.0: Social Media’s Richest Audiences [Infographics]

Wealthy Web 2.0: Social Media's Richest Audiences [Infographics]

You may have heard that Facebook recently hit 500 million members. According to Google AdPlanner, in June the popular social network received 540 million unique visitors, so there’s some evidence that the site’s open graph initiative is working in expanding the reach of the site even beyond its massive user base.

But what’s really interesting is how Facebook has penetrated the wealthy web. First, a little background on why we focus on internet trends among $100,000+ households. The only site which reaches more wealthy US users is Yahoo, who reaches 56% of the $100k+ online population, compared to Facebook’s 51% (Google may reach more, though they don’t include themselves in their AdPlanner stats, so it’s difficult to pinpoint exact numbers).

Finding Flights Via Twitter? What Will They Think of Next?

Finding Flights Via Twitter? What Will They Think of Next?

In the realm of desperation and seemingly sensible marketing, United Airlines took to Twitter last year in an effort to fill seats that would normally be empty.

Airlines look at flight data from the past few years to determine which flights at various times of the year flew with a large number of empty seats. They then section off seats from the same flight in the coming year for “Twares”, and tweet about the lower fare on these seats. The idea is good one: United seems to sell out all their Twares in a relatively short amount of time. But customers looking for a Tware have to pay close attention to the United Airlines Twitter account, as a Tware tweet is about as common as an authentic Chanel bag in Chinatown.

20 Years Gone in Less Than 140 Characters: CNN Editor Octavia Nasr Fired Over Controversial Tweet

20 Years Gone in Less Than 140 Characters: CNN Editor Octavia Nasr Fired Over Controversial Tweet

These days, you never know what kind of effect the things you say on the internet might have on others around you.

Or yourself, for that matter.

Take CNN Editor Octavia Nasr for example. On Wednesday , Ms. Nasr, who has been the chief Middle East correspondent at CNN for the last 20 years, was fired from her job after making this comment on her Twitter page on the 4th of July : “Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah.. One of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot..”

Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah is often considered by many to be affiliated with terrorism. Over the next few days that followed her controversial and uncalculated tweet, outrage ensued across the internet, from Twitter to a string of political blogs, all heavily criticizing the now former CNN Editor for her careless 140-character remark.

USA vs. England World Cup Match Was a Social Smash – But Not for the Players

USA vs. England World Cup Match Was a Social Smash - But Not for the Players

The USA vs. England World Cup match was broadcast live to soccer (spelled “football” in British English) fans around the world via blogs like the Huffington Post, on the Washington Post’s site live chat during the stream was encouraged, and through partnerships with ESPN and Univision in the US (and 8 other stations around the world) Facebook users could watch and chat through dedicated apps and social network extensions, and Twitter even has a dedicated page providing a tweet by tweet view of the games. Verizon rolled out their V CAST service to Android phone users in time to catch the action on their mobile phones, and Sprint users – including EVO 4G owners, could tune in on Sprint TV.

But if you’re hoping to get a first hand tweet or update from anyone directly on the pitch, you may be out of luck.
