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.

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

Your Size Is Medium

21 Oct

Did you know that the creator of Twitter has started a new site called Medium? It reminds me of Twitter – instead you create a story instead of a tweet. The idea of Medium is you share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends. You create little stories to say what’s on your mind. Sound like Twitter? Perhaps!

Sports News Coverage Has Changed

15 May

I was recently reading an article by Scott Patsko from the Sun News about how sports coverage has changed with social media. Specifically Scott pointed out that sporting news coverage has significantly changed over the last two years due to Twitter.

Consumers need to know information immediately and the next day does not work. The immediacy of in game updates – knowing the scores and stats has changed everything. Now people see sports news coverage as highlights after the game by viewing a photo gallery for example. In the new digital age, game coverage has no longer a shelf life and has become a daily publication.

If you are business, have you considered taking a page out of the sporting reporting playbook? Are you live tweeting from events? Are you following-up with highlights? Web 3.0,the semantic web, is upon us and consumers are looking for help through all the clutter.

Tweet Chat

8 Apr

Did you know that Twitter can be used as chat? You may already use it like a chatroom, but did you know that now a website allows you to chat using their tool? It’s called TweetChat.

How does it work? Each tweet automatically gets the hashtag added and the room auto-updates. The site says that you can use the “User Control” area to feature people you like or to block spammers. It continues to say that “Smart pausing” has been added so when you scroll down the page, it will not refresh, helping you avoid replying to the wrong person.

What’s Coming in Web 3.0

17 Jan

Are you wondering how to get your business ready for Web 3.0? I recently did a speech on this topic for the Web SIG Cleveland.

Three main points of Web 3.0:

  1. The need for relevant information and help
  2. User not aware of creating and consuming information
  3. User forgets about the device an focus on contentĀ
