It’s long been said that most people on Twitter are sheep. That’s not a bad thing. Many users simply join to follow and get updates from brands, athletes and celebrities they like. There’s a shift in how people get their information. Passive social viewing means people, in addition to getting news from third party outlets, will go direct to the source.
Earlier this week, Huggies Brazil shared an app they designed to let parents know when their baby has a wet diaper. If you’ve been the parent of a newborn, you know how stressful the first few weeks can be. Parents are tasked with keeping track of the number of wet and soiled diapers, number of feedings, sleep frequency and duration and all that tracking can make some overwhelmed and anxious.
Direct from Twitter:
TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will be removed from their respective app stores and will stop functioning on May 7. Our Facebook integration will also stop on May 7.
Why is Twitter shutting down Tweetdeck service?
Over the past 18 months, we’ve been focused on building a fast and feature-richweb application for modern browsers, and a Chrome app, which offers some unique features like notifications. We’ve recently introduced many enhancements to these apps –– a new look and feel, tools like search term autocomplete and search filtersto help you find what you’re looking for more quickly, and automatically-updating Tweet streams so you immediately see the most recent Tweets. Our weekly web releases have been possible because we’ve nearly doubled the size of the TweetDeck team over the past six months (and we’re still hiring).
What Tweetdeck services will be available?
What if you could live on digitally after you die? Would you do it?
A new app called LivesOn generates a digital “twin” that analyze your Twitter to feed and learn your preferences while you’re still alive. If you choose to use the service and invoke a “will” an “executor” of said will, in the event of your death, activate the app. Once activated, LivesOn will utilize artificial intelligence to power your Twitter feed.
