Browsing: Twitter

Twitter is a world-famous social media site that has taken the internet by storm. People post text, images, and videos to share with other followers all over the globe. Registered users can like or retweet posts from other people while unregistered visitors can only read them!

Twitter was created in 2006 as an American microblogging service where registered members could write short messages of up to 140 characters (known as “tweets”) which would be broadcasted to others on Twitter’s website. It became very popular after being introduced because it allowed anyone who wanted their information out there to have complete control over how they got their message across without having any third party interfere in what they had set forth; moreover, tweets are sent out instantly.

Elon Musk announced that X (formerly Twitter) will start displaying headlines again in preview cards with URLs, after removing them last month. In an upcoming update, the title will be overlaid on the upper portion of the image of a URL card. Musk did not provide a specific timeline or example of the new card layout. This change may benefit publications that rely on standard formats, but its effectiveness will depend on the design of the new card.

Following Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, numerous advertisers have halted their spending, primarily due to uncertainties about content moderation under Musk’s leadership. Musk’s controversial tweets and an observed increase in hate speech on the platform have exacerbated these concerns. In response, Musk has communicated his commitment to maintaining a level of content moderation and is actively engaging with advertisers to address their concerns. The situation underscores the complex relationship between social media platforms, free speech, and advertising, with Twitter’s future and its appeal to advertisers hanging in the balance.
