Get Your News With Twitter Moments

12 Nov

Twitter just launched “moments” – a news service that congregates tweets about the latest events. Read tweets from today, world news, sports, entertainment or funny moments. Of course, you can always click on trending hashtags to find out the most popular topics Twitter users are talking about too. Twitter continues to be my favorite source of news and this feature made it much better.

Discover Twitter in a new way with moments.

What Is A Meme? The Internet Meme Database

1 Nov

Leading Hands Through Technology has talked about memes before and wrote up the definition of a meme a couple of years ago. It generally mimics a latest trend graphically and then this allows for it to be spread vitally. However recently I stumbled upon a website that archives and keeps track of memes – the Meme Internet Database aka Know Your Meme.

According to the website, “Know Your Meme was founded in 2008 to research and document Internet memes and viral phenomena. Its research is handled by an independent professional editorial and research staff and community members.”

If you are looking up a new meme or just want to look up an old one, you should start here.

Two Ways To Make Twitter More User Friendly

1 Aug

@Jack Dorsey,

I am a Twitter fan. I was an early adopter. I get it. However I have seen hundreds of people not get it and I know why. I think it comes down to two reasons people don’t get Twitter – not understanding who their message is going to and how to write a tweet.

First of all there needs to be a paradigm shift from public and private accounts to public and private messages. When a message is written let the person choose “do my followers see this” or “does it go public”. People who don’t get Twitter don’t understand how to setup their account so don’t make them think about it.

Second I think giving the ability to let people write long messages and let Twitter break it up automatically into individual tweets would simplify the process. People who don’t get Twitter don’t get the 140 character limit so don’t make them think about it.

I realize these two ideas may introduce many questions however only user experience testing will provide answers. Making Twitter easier to use requires less thought process. Lowering the interaction cost will be challenging however it can be done with a careful balance of physical, mental and level of subject matter precision.

Truly,
@MarcMajers
