Twitter Engagement: How to Connect With People on Twitter  

Twitter Engagement: How to Connect With People on Twitter   | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Social Media Marketing Podcast 290. In this episode Andrew and Pete explore the Twitter algorithm and how to create engaging content on Twitter.
donhornsby's insight:
Questions: Ask more questions with your tweets. Twitter can be quite automated or spammy at times, so don’t do that. Be the one others can actually talk to. People struggle to find others who respond to them because so many people automate their tweets. Ask questions, create content that others can respond to, and reply to them.

Why Your Facebook and Instagram Page Might Get Deleted (And How to Prevent It) 

Why Your Facebook and Instagram Page Might Get Deleted (And How to Prevent It)  | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
donhornsby's insight:
Facebook and Instagram, unless it is an egregious violation, will not delete your account without first warning you, usually multiple times. If they do delete your account, they will provide an opportunity to appeal and often, even if you were in violation of the TOS, they’ll reinstate your account, with a final stern warning. However, I suggest you avoid any possibilities of your account having any issues by simply reading and following the TOS. Sure, it might mean you have to stop doing a few of your favorite go-to tricks, but, as is the case in life, you’re better off doing the right thing. The right thing is to follow the Terms of Service.

Twitter to Test Doubling Tweet Length to 280 Characters | #ICT #SocialMedia

Twitter to Test Doubling Tweet Length to 280 Characters | #ICT #SocialMedia | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter’s defining attribute has long been its brevity: 140 characters in a post and no more.

That is now set to change. Twitter said on Tuesday that it would test extending the text limit of a post on its service to 280 characters. (In effect, that would double the length of the first two sentences of this paragraph; those sentences, for the record, add up to 140 characters.)

Twitter said the goal was to eliminate what it views as constraints that keep people from tweeting more frequently. One significant barrier, according to Twitter’s internal research, has been the stringent limit on character count.

“When people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people tweeting,” Twitter said in a blog post.

It is a significant moment for the 11-year-old Twitter, which has been trying to figure out how to change the social media service without alienating the people who have embraced its short format.

donhornsby's insight:
The idea of extending the length of Twitter posts has been contentious internally, batted around among product groups that are trying to find ways to persuade people to use the service more frequently. At 328 million users, Twitter has been criticized for its inability to attract more people. Investors have grown nervous, as that slowing of user growth has affected the company’s revenue.
