Twitter New Features In Instagram Battle

The world of internet has given many people the chance to communicate and do things everyone almost think to be impossible. With the possibilities around, one of the best that people got is the chance of editing their photos. On the other hand, there are just a whole lot of editing platforms. Most of them are not just for editing, but also a social network in one. It only means that, once you had your picture captured, you can edit it to the social network itself and share it with your friends and relatives.

Twitter New features in Instagram Battel

One of the best social networks with photo editing feature are Twitter and Instagram. Millions of people around the world are using Twitter and Intagram and it has been just recently that these two platforms are in the great battle. The mobile war in between the photo sharing services Twitter and Instagram is heating up. The long-standing micro-blogging champ has merely fired up its very own salvo right after Instagram merely drew a good line into the sand.

The popular photo retoucher Instagram simply made up its very own decision in parting way to be the coding backbone of Twitter, or API and slightly disabling how the images on Twitter has been filtered. It is merely shown in the stream of the Twitter, likely in an attempt of driving more and more traffic as well as social connectivities directly to their website. At some extent, this thing is understandable, not to mention that Instagram, as a popular image filtering website has been bought by Twitter Rival, which is Facebook right back from the month of April.

Photo filters

With that being said, Twitter was not going to just sit on their hands and watch their users to struck for making a choice between the networks. Now, the long-standing battle in between the social network biggest still continues. Twitter also had an image sharing as well as storing service of its very own for quite a while now. The only thing is that, there is no robust filtering system that is available for those of the tweeters. On Tuesday, Twitter mainly stood up to Facebook and Instagram’s strategical moves and they simply rolled out the filtering service of their own, which also happens to be a look alike of Instagram. Whenever you just updated your Twitter application upon your Smartphone, recently, you will definitely see extra menu items whenever you try to tweet and share your photos to your friends and followers.

In order to use the service, you only have to start your tweet just like the way you use to. You need to take a photo or use the one from your apps. After taking the photo, you will surely get the simple and easy menu that will definitely let you crop and filter your photos. Right after the primary crop, you could see the filters all at once on the table view or just flip through the filters with just a swipe of the thumb. The swiping feature is somewhat nice, for the reason that the option of the photos is a bit larger.

WTF is the HashTag in Twitter –> #

140 Charecters status updates is a simple idea which Started by Twitter and presently it has became a trending platform where we can get the most Discussed topics / News. When I joined Twitter first I came to know about an charecter known as “@” where I can mention anyone who is in Twitter. Later I saw another charecter know as “#” also known as HashTag. I got fully confused about WTF is that symbol. I know that those who are new to Twitter they must be confused with this Symbol as we see this in most of the Status Updates.

HashTag means Connecting Tweets that share the Similar Topic. To Tell more about Hashtag i have to take an Example. Lets start with the Topic “SatyaMev jayate” , the HashTag of that Event was #smjindia . Someone updated his status as ‘Satyamev jayate is one of the most popular show in India #smjindia‘ . So if you will Search #smjindia then you can get lots of different tweets about the Same Topic. You can also search without the HashTag as Satyamev Jayate but you will get many types of tweets which contain the Same Words but searching #smjindia will give you results on Specific Topic. As simple as that. The Hashtag is also Counted in the 140 Charecters.

Let me Give an real Life Example where #HashTags helped a lot.


During Japan EarthQuake, one started posting about the Earthquake with #japanearthquake and soon many tweets were added with the same Hashtag from which everyone know about the Present happening about the Disaster. This helped Media channels to spread the news Faster.

You can get the Trending Hashtags / Hot Topics on Twitter in the left button or from various other Third Party Apps. You can get the topics throughout the World or according to any Country or any Specific Area too.

Hope you knew about Twitter #HashTag and if you have any doubt then feel free to Comment below. And yes Start Using twitter a lot because Twitter is the Present and the Future of RealTime Happening Source.

How to Make Twitter Work for Your Business

The major online social networking platforms are quickly turning into the preferred marketing outlets for many companies around the world. Business enterprises from diverse industries, from online car insurance to pizza delivery, are rushing to establish a solid social media presence. It is easy to see why companies are concentrating their marketing and advertising efforts on social media sites. Online social networking has gone beyond the phase of being an Internet curiosity; it has become the de facto mode of communication for more than 800 million active users around the world.

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

Twitter’s Reach

Twenty-two percent of Internet are engaged in social networking at any given time, and the number of members registered on social media platforms is growing exponentially. Among the different online social networking sites, Twitter has become the preferred social media platform for marketing, advertising, customer service, and public relations. Twitter does not have the highest number of registered users; that distinction goes to Facebook, with more than 800 million members. Twitter, however, is acknowledged as one of the most dynamic social media platforms for businesses. Before figuring out how Twitter can work for your business, it is important to understand the basic Twitter functions of messaging and micro-blogging. Twitter’s approach to social networking is to allow organizations or individuals to freely connect with others via “tweets”, short text-based messages no longer than 140 characters. Skeptics may doubt the power of Twitter based on its fundamental premises, but the elegant way in which tweets are handled and managed within the system make it an ideal platform for business. Twitter isn’t limited to messaging; there are dozens of third-party applications that enhance Twitter’s functionality. Some of these apps can be used to send and receive payments, track time and expenses, plan events, post coupons, and more. There are several ways to make Twitter work for your business. Marketing is the most often cited business use, but there is a lot more that a company can accomplish on Twitter. The following three methods describe how your business can begin to harness the power of Twitter beyond mere marketing:

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

Managing the customer experience is a vital part of today’s business process. CRM software evolved from the contact management systems previously used by salespeople. For a company that has not yet implemented a CRM solution, Twitter can be the perfect stepping stone to building a social CRM. Twitter already provides the conduit for relationships between providers of goods or services and their customers. A collection of tweets can reveal a lot about a company and their customers. Ever since companies began establishing a presence on Twitter, customers have been eager to interact with them. Customers who choose to follow your company may be following a competitor as well, thereby giving you a chance to compare and manage relationships accordingly. Since Twitter is like a giant listening post for companies, it may be even more effective than traditional CRM tools. Twitter posts left by your customers are a goldmine of information waiting to be tapped. A handful of third-party apps make the CRM process on Twitter even easier, but the principle remains: Every tweet from a customer counts, and it deserves closer scrutiny.

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

Developing Brand Awareness

Twitter makes it easy for businesses to build their brands. Twitter profile pages have enough room for the basics like the company name, logo, slogan, and contact information. It’s up to the business to engage the millions of potential customers and prospects. Word of mouth marketing comes naturally to Twitter. If a company manages to produce compelling tweets about their products or services, those posts stand a good chance of being retweeted. This essentially becomes free brand exposure.

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

Content Marketing

A company does not have to live and die by Twitter’s 140-character message capacity. For businesses that already have Internet content on a blog or a website, a well-positioned tweet can direct customers to another site. In fact, content marketing isn’t limited to the Internet. Tweets can direct social media followers to other forms of advertising, such as guiding customers to listen to radio ads, watch online videos, read new blog posts, or print coupons.
