Celebrate five years of Ed Balls Day by tweeting your own name

Posted on April 28, 2016

We all enjoy that smug sense of satisfaction when a figure of authority gets something wrong, and there’s nobody more in the crosshairs than politicians. Five years ago today, one poor MP did something so comical and clueless, he seems destined to be ridiculed over it on every April 28th for the rest of his life.

On April 28th 2011, the then Shadow Chancellor (more…)

Why it’s important to roar at the trolls on Twitter

Posted on March 24, 2016

Whether you use Twitter for drumming up new business, or for looking at pictures of cats, you can’t help but notice how there’s a lot of aggression on the microblogging platform – especially following a tragic event. This week saw the latest in a long line of terrorist attacks take place on mainland Europe, this time in the Belgian capital of Brussels. As ever, following one of these awful attacks, Twitter was awash with people using the atrocities to push their own political agenda, or just to troll others with their offensive views.

The hashtag #StopIslam started trending once again, as ill-educated people equated a religion with a terrorist group. Thankfully, Twitter is as densely populated with tolerant people as it is with xenophobes, and the hashtag was quickly hijacked to reverse its meaning and mock those attempting to suggest that Islam was behind the attacks.

Twitter user Lexi Alexander summed it all up nicely: (more…)

Judge’s ruling a bitter burrito to swallow

Posted on March 18, 2016

A legal verdict passed in Pennsylvania, US, in a case involving a Mexican fast food chain could be bad news for managers wanting to control their online reputation, but great news for disgruntled employees.

Chipotle, which has outlets in the UK and Canada as well as the US and offers tacos, burritos and salads to customers wanting a taste from south of the border, was found at fault for dismissing an employee who took to microblogging platform Twitter to let off some steam about working conditions.

War veteran James Kennedy tweeted: (more…)

Twitter to roll out new timeline feature

Posted on February 15, 2016

Social networking site Twitter has recently announced that it has plans to test a new feature that will affect the way users view content on their news feeds.

The company intends to change its news feeds so that users see content the site deems as the most important to each user. The feature has been named ‘Show Me The Best Tweet First’ with the company stating that it would mean that users will see tweets from the accounts they are more likely to care about and want to see appearing at the top of the news feed. Following this, all other content would then appear underneath these highlighted tweets in reverse chronological order.

The plans have already been deemed controversial by many news outlets, but the social media site has claimed that it would mean that the best content would “shine through” and would allow these tweets to reach a larger potential audience.

When asked about this potential new feature, the California-based company said that this will improve a user’s experience. It revealed that it (more…)
