Twitter Blog: Timely Tweets: Now easier to see

Twitter Blog: Timely Tweets: Now easier to see | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
We all come to Twitter to connect with the latest information on the topics and people we care about. So when we decide to follow a favorite brand, business or charitable organization, we expect to be among the first to get a special announcement, access to exclusive content or a great offer.

That's why starting today, we're introducing a way to ensure that the most important Tweets from the organizations you follow reach you directly, by placing them at or near the top of your timeline. These Promoted Tweets will scroll through the timeline like any other Tweet, and like regular Tweets, they will appear in your timeline just once. Promoted Tweets can also be easily dismissed from your timeline with a single click.

What Web Designers Can Learn From Video Games - Smashing Magazine | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

Random questions are posed, the top answer is chosen, and credibility points are given to the winner. It’s a ranking system that accumulates and unlocks more and more features within the system. It works because of the psychology of achievement and game mechanics and thus encourages interaction. This raises the question, what can a Web designer learn from games, or — more specifically — video games?

Turntable.fm is taking over the ear drums of social music listeners everywhere.

"If you haven’t tried it out yet, turntable is a site where you can create a room, name it whatever you want, and start to DJ.
You can have up to 5 DJs at a time, and everyone else is in the audience. You can rate songs as “awesome” or “lame”.
Pretty simple… and they’re definitely not the first to create a social music listening platform. Many others have done really well like blip.fm, spotify, last.fm and more."

» Google Comes to WinPhone 7 As an App, Not an Option

» Google Comes to WinPhone 7 As an App, Not an Option | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
Windows Phone 7 lets you make Google searches, but only through a back door.

Google’s free Search app for WP7 is available today, according to the Google Mobile team. “Just search the Marketplace for ‘Google Search,’ download, pin to Start, and the power of Google Search is only a click away.”
“Search, download, pin to Start” — doesn’t that seem a little complicated just to load a search engine on your phone?

A distinguishing feature of Windows Phone 7 handsets is their three dedicated hardware buttons. The Windows logo goes home, the left-arrow button goes back, and the magnifying-glass “search” button opens up Microsoft’s search engine, Bing.
