The option will enable users to tap on the @username in the main app feed to pop up the profile which they intend to view. It can be a very helpful feature. Not all accounts on Twitter have relevant usernames which can tell a user more about the person. Also, if the user clicks on a [...]
Twitter as a medium has been really popular to get updates by the seconds on all whats happening around the world. But the Achilles heel of Twitter has always been not getting an option of editing tweets. There has been a lot of discussion over the topic and Twitter didn’t give a firm reply. Recently, the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey said on the Joe Rogan Podcast that Twitter is considering adding the functionality of editable tweets.
In his discussion, when asked about the functionality, Rogan said “You could build it as such so maybe we introduce a 5-second to 30-second delay in the sending. And within that window, you can edit. The issue with going longer [...]

Must Read: Twitter Warns 330 Million Users Of A Password VulnerabilityWhat Are Locked Accounts
Twitter locks an account after detecting sudden behavioral changes. This means the account has either sent a large number of unsolicited tweets or it has tweeted some misleading links. Although it is nice for the social network to tighten its security, the decision with this [...]
If anyone logged on to Twitter late last night, must have been greeted with a “Keeping Your Account Secure” notice. It is fair to say that not everyone went ahead and read the whole thing. However, what the popup window informs users about is quite damning. It essentially says that the passwords of all 330 million Twitter users were exposed in plain text. This happened due to a bug that the company claims to have fixed now.
Twitter claims that its investigation showed that there was no evidence that any breach of the unmasked passwords occurred. However, out of an “abundance of caution,” it has adviced all users to change their [...]
After testing the 280-character limit with a few users, Twitter is officially rolling out the new character limit to all its users. The only exceptions will be for Twitter users in the Japanese, Korean, and Chinese languages, who can convey as much as double the amount of information in their tweets compared to characters in English and other languages.
This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is madness ! This is me

If you are an avid twitterati and the 140-character has always annoyed you, then you’re in luck. Twitter has announced that it will be testing a 280-character limit for tweets for some people. These people will be randomly chosen and the duration of the testing phase has not been announced yet.
Back in 2016, Twitter chief Jack Dorsey was asked about the 140-character limit and its future, and he replied with a firm “It’s staying.” All this seems to have changed within a year as the 280-character limit testing phase picks up pace. The company has said that only a “single-digit” percentage of its users will get the opportunity to double their [...]
Yesterday OnePlus posted a media on their social media platforms showing the OnePlus 5 in a grey colour with the 50 Shades of Grey tag “Mr. Grey will See you now” with one small change, with the word “grey” spelt “Gray” which is a more American way of writing the word.

This image seems to be an exact copy of an image Moto tweeted for the “grey” Moto M. While the meme for “Mr. Grey will see you now” is a popular and open concept. It seems that not only did OnePlus get [...]
Apple has been off Twitter till now, not communicating with the world through social media. But the tech giant has finally launched a Twitter account @Apple just few days ahead of the iPhone 7 launch set for September 7th.
Although Apple hasn’t tweeted anything yet, the account is verified and seems to be ready to go. From the looks of it Apple will live tweet the Apple iPhone 7, 7th September event. The company also recently updated it’s Newsroom for a more card like approach.
Apple has remained very closed about it’s press relations and the company’s approach towards marketing has been very internal and not social media friendly. With a twitter [...]
Twitter has officially confirmed rumors surrounding the removal of media and @replies from the 140 character count.
Media attachments, such as photos and videos, will no longer count toward the character limit. @names in reply to Tweets will be removed from the count and people will now be able to Retweet and Quote Tweet themselves, enabling them to resurface any of their previous Tweets and add new commentary. In addition, any new Tweet beginning with a @name will be seen by all followers.
We’re not giving up on the idea of Twitter being in the moment. That concept of brevity, speed and live conversation – being able to think of something and put it out [...]
Twitter inc. is making several changes that will affect its users in a good way. While the 140 character limit has stayed a major reason for its popularity, it was originally set for use with text messaging or SMS service.
Twitter had earlier considered raising the tweet limit to 10000 characters, but the company realizes that the length of the tweets has majorly been the reason for the popularity of the now “trend” network.
Now, however the company is planning to exclude the media and links attached from the counted characters in the tweets. this will free up more space for actual wordage.
Twitter is also, much like facebook, betting big on video and [...]
Twitter took off 125,000 accounts from the website for threatening or promoting terrorist activity. All these accounts were linked to the extremist group, ISIS -both its members as well as sympathisers. ISIS’ tech-expertise are no big secret. Its members have been brazenly using the virtual space to get their message across.
There has been no official verification for the identity of the users of these accounts. Also, if they truly were related to ISIS -there really is no way to know how effective this move was. Many of these accounts are often handled by the same person who can very easily create another network of Twitter accounts and pick up exactly from where they [...]
