A New Chrome Extension Removes the Negativity from Your Twitter Feed

A New Chrome Extension Removes the Negativity from Your Twitter Feed | AllAtwitter | Scoop.it
Many were outraged at the news that Facebook had tinkered with member News Feeds, suppressing or highlighting “happy” and “sad” updates to see how these subtle mood shifts influenced its audience. What if, for instance, you want to screen out negativity on Twitter? A Better Place is a Chrome extension and bookmarklet created by Jonty Wareing, designed to screen out unpleasant tweets. It was, he writes, explicitly inspired by Facebook’s “unethical research proving the attitude of social media seriously affects mood for extended periods of time.” But in this case, it’s a willful “filter bubble,” drawing on “AFINN-111 sentiment analysis, which is awful, but still better than everything else when using twitter.”  The Chrome extension automatically screens out negativity between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. (on the theory that it’s best to start one’s day without any mood spoilers).

You want to try this out? I am not impressed.

Twitter global data is always fascinating. In terms of per capita Twitter usage, the U.S. trails among others, Brunei. In terms of popular individual accounts, President Obama is ahead of Lady Gaga, but only slightly. (Of course they both trail Justin Bieber.) And the "tweetiest" country? Hint: It begins with "K."

Twitter buys SnappyTV video sharing service

Twitter buys SnappyTV video sharing service | AllAtwitter | Scoop.it
Twitter announced plans Thursday to buy SnappyTV, a service which allows for the clipping, editing and sharing of video over the messaging platform. The deal, terms of which were not disclosed, will help Twitter step up efforts to become more visually engaging as it struggles to grow its user base. SnappyTV is to be integrated into Twitter's Amplify, which helps media companies distribute video content on Twitter. "SnappyTV's platform for live clipping, editing, and distribution is already widely used by brands and our media partners to share video clips on Twitter, both organically and via Twitter Amplify," said Twitter's Baljeet Singh in a blog post.
