Twitter reported $548 million in revenue over the last three months compared to the $511.9 million that was expected by Wall Street. They beat expectations by more than $36 million.

Even more impressively, for Twitter, the company added 9 million monthly active users over the quarter. That's 7 million more than expected. The site broke out its growth in the United States, emphasizing that it added 3 million users in its home country.

Beyond financials and user growth, Twitter reported that it's solving one of its major problems: abuse on the platform.

Ahead of its Q1 earnings call this week, Twitter told BuzzFeed News that it plans to stream live video nonstop across its platform, making it easier for people to tune into what people are talking about.

There isn’t yet a set timeline for the rollout of its ‘ambient video’ programming; Twitter COO and CFO Anthony Noto told BuzzFeed News:

We will definitely have 24/7 (video) content on Twitter. Our goal is to be a dependable place so that when you want to see what’s happening, you think of going to Twitter.

New social media site Mastodon potential cyber-security tar pit | #Awareness

New social media site Mastodon potential cyber-security tar pit | #Awareness | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
A new social media network named Mastodon popped up a few months ago and is designed to deliver a decentralised, open-source experience, but its this unique structure that may make its members vulnerable to cyber-attacks.


Malwarebyte's researcher Zammis Clark blogged that the decentralised nature of the site's construction, which he said helps eliminate ads, a primary selling point for users, also leaves the social network open to hackers. The site is very different from Facebook, Twitter and other networks.
Instead of being hosted by a corporate entity on its server system Mastodon members can set up their own server if they wish, called in “instance” by the Mastodon community, and then have people join Mastodon through that server. But here is where the problem arises.


Each person's “instance” receives a special domain name, for example mastodon.instance1, and anyone registering on that instance would receive a username like johnsmith.mastodon.instance1.


Where things go awry, Clark said, is the usernames can be replicated across all the "instances", so on mastodon.instance2 there could be a johnsmith.mastodon.instance2. This creates a situation where there are no verified accounts.

Sorry for the Nazi spam from my Twitter account | #SocialMedia #Hacking #ThirdParty #Apps #Awareness | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
It happened to me (and many others). It could happen to you.

 

So what happened?
Thankfully others had done their detective work while I was listening to podcasts at 30,000 feet. The message had been sent from my account (and many others) via a third-party app called Twitter Counter.

 

Twitter Counter requests read *and* write access to your Twitter account, in order to do its jiggery pokery counting your Twitter followers. I gave Twitter Counter access to my account in October 2014, and that clearly was a decision I now regret. Quite why it would need write access, unless it is planning its own self-promotion, I can't say.

 

The fact that a third-party app was used means that the hackers didn't have my Twitter password. Phew! It also meant, however, that they didn't have to try to bypass Twitter's Login Verification feature in order to tweet from mine and thousands of other Twitter users' accounts.

 

What should you do if you had your Twitter account hijacked in this way?

 

Delete the offending tweet, and revoke the offending third-party app's access to your Twitter account.

An Update on Safety  | Twitter Blogs | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Making Twitter a safer place is our primary focus. We stand for freedom of expression and people being able to see all sides of any topic. That’s put in jeopardy when abuse and harassment stifle and silence those voices. We won’t tolerate it and we’re launching new efforts to stop it.

 

Building on the work we began in November, we’re continuing to work on ways to give people more control over what they see on Twitter. Last week, we introduced an improvement to reporting abusive Tweets that gives people experiencing targeted harassment more ways to report it.

 

Today, we’re announcing three changes: stopping the creation of new abusive accounts, bringing forward safer search results, and collapsing potentially abusive or low-quality Tweets.

Facebook buys computer vision startup focused on adding objects to video | #Acquisitions #SocialMedia #AR #Fayteq

Facebook has acquired a German company called Fayteq that builds software add-ons for video editing that can remove and add whole objects from captured video using computer vision. The acquisition was first reported by a German startup publication (via Variety) and confirmed to TechCrunch, and could be useful as Facebook pursues additional video filter creation technology, both for its live streaming efforts, and for platforms like Instagram Stories.

Of course, being able to add objects to live video and remove them or cover them over on the fly is also something that can be put to interesting use in the emerging field of augmented reality. Facebook launched an AR platform for its built-in camera feature in April at this year’s F8, with the aim of encouraging developers to build AR experiences for use in Facebook on smartphones, which Mark Zuckerberg has said will be “the first augmented reality platform that becomes mainstream.”

Like Twitter But Hate the Trolls? Try Mastodon | #SocialMedia #ICT | BUT #Awareness about #CyberSecurity | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter’s been combatting harassment for years. The latest effort: quelling its horde of anonymous, hostile egg accounts. But for many users, Twitter’s abuse problem has long since undermined its value as a platform for creative communication. That’s what makes Mastodon—a free, open-source, and increasingly popular six-month-old Twitter alternative—so intriguing.

Mastodon has created a diverse yet welcoming online environment by doing exactly what Twitter won’t: letting its community make the rules. The platform consists of various user-created networks, called instances, each of which determines its own laws. One instance could ban sexist jokes and Nazi logos, while another might practice radically free speech. (In this way, Mastodon is not unlike a network of discretely moderated message boards crossed with a Tweetdeck-like interface.) Users choose for themselves which instance they want to join and select from a host of privacy and anti-harassment settings.

 

Oh, and the character limit is 500, not 140. In essence, Mastodon is an experiment in whether individually moderated communities can make a social network like Twitter more civil.

Now on Twitter: 140 characters for your replies | Twitter Blogs | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Remember how we told you we were working on ways to let you to express more with 140 characters? Since then, we’ve introduced twoupdates, and today we’re rolling out another. Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.

With this change, we’ve simplified conversations in a few ways:

  • Who you are replying to will appear above the Tweet text rather than within the Tweet text itself, so you have more characters to have conversations.
  • You can tap on “Replying to…” to easily see and control who’s part of your conversation.
  • When reading a conversation, you’ll actually see what people are saying, rather than seeing lots of @usernames at the start of a Tweet.

It’s now easier to follow a conversation, so you can focus on what a discussion is about, and who is having it. Also, with all 140 characters for your replies, you have more room to participate in group conversations.

Gust MEES's insight:

Remember how we told you we were working on ways to let you to express more with 140 characters? Since then, we’ve introduced twoupdates, and today we’re rolling out another. Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.

With this change, we’ve simplified conversations in a few ways:

  • Who you are replying to will appear above the Tweet text rather than within the Tweet text itself, so you have more characters to have conversations.
  • You can tap on “Replying to…” to easily see and control who’s part of your conversation.
  • When reading a conversation, you’ll actually see what people are saying, rather than seeing lots of @usernames at the start of a Tweet.

It’s now easier to follow a conversation, so you can focus on what a discussion is about, and who is having it. Also, with all 140 characters for your replies, you have more room to participate in group conversations.

Twitter is punishing abusive users by putting them in time-out | #SocialMedia

Twitter is punishing abusive users by putting them in time-out | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter has a new tactic for curbing abuse and harassment: a time-out.


The company has started temporarily restricting the access of accounts it determines to be abusive, a Twitter spokesperson told Business Insider. Affected accounts will only have their tweets seen by their followers until the ban is lifted.

The spokesperson said that Twitter started temporarily limiting accounts last week, and Heat Street was the first to notice the activity on Wednesday.

Several users who are temporarily restricted by Twitter have tweeted screenshots of messages they've received saying that they had violated the company's content rules. The messages said their accounts were restricted for 12 hours, but a Twitter spokesperson said the restriction's duration could be longer or shorter depending on the offender's behavior.
