The last few weeks I’ve been scratching my head trying to figure out where Twitter is going. From what I’ve seen the implementation of the new algorithm is pretty clumsy at best and doesn’t make a lot of sense. I wonder how many people besides myself they’re annoying with notifications via email that don’t stop coming no matter what you do and mobile notifications that have no rhyme or reason to them. The one bright spot is
In case you were consumed w/something else last week, at SXSW the live streaming app
made a huge splash and then days later Twitter debuted Periscope
. I’ve heard many say this could have really changed things in Ferguson- maybe, maybe not. For sure though this can be a really valuable tool for us in the political/advocacy space. Real time live streaming complete with chat - viewable on platforms people are already watching #ftw. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn Facebook is working on something similar but I have no proof, just gut instinct. Neither app is available yet for android so I’ve not played w/either but anecdotally everyone I’ve talked to likes Periscope hands down.
What say you?
