Biggest New This Month – Twitter Has Ended Partnership With Linkedin!
“Ryan Roslansky”, “Head of Content on Linkedin” released in his blog, Linkedin has had a 2 year contract with Twitter a micro-blogging website, that allows posts to be added to Linkedin from Twitter. This contract is now not being renewed, but if you have clicked the choice to have your posts on Linkedin added to your Twitter account that feature is still active and available.
Twitter has implemented stricter guidelines for application programming interface (API) for developers, which affects third party software programs. While they are making these changes to protecting their own branding, developers are jolted by these changes as they have ptu some much time and resources into developing apps for Twitter.
Michael Sippy, Twitter product manager said in a blog post, “We’re building tools for publishers and investing more and more I our own apps to ensure that you have a great experience everywhere you experience you experience Twitter, no matter what device you’re using.” Twitter Cards. The new addition to Twitter lets users add a few lines of code, or “card,” to a tweet that will add an expanded view of content on Twitter.
The challenge with many social media companies and especially applies to Twitter and that is to find the right balance between supporting developers and operate a profitable business at the same time.
