Twitter to host developer conference


Twitter to host developer conference

Social networking site Twitter has revealed that it will be holding its second ever conference for developers in San Francisco next month.

The mission statement of the event, called Flight, is to help the developers “build the best mobile apps”.

According to the itinerary, there will be a keynote speaker in the form of Dick Costolo, the CEO of the micro-blogging site. As with the majority of developer shows – including Facebook F8 and WWDC from Apple – news providers are expecting to see an influx of new Twitter features emerging in the following weeks for users to experiment with.

To complement the speakers, the event will also offer ‘technical sessions’ in which developers can have in-depth discussions about various topics, including programming for the likes of Java and Swift. In anticipation of Flight, Twitter has updated its developer site to make it easier to navigate and find answers to questions users may have.

Twitter is currently going through a period of change with many new features being implemented recently, including a ‘mute’ function that allows users to stop the tweets of a certain account from appearing in news feeds without the need to unfollow, and the introduction of displaying tweets that followed accounts favourite.

The social network is constantly introducing new tools to give users the best possible experience, and this developer conference – which is set to take place on 22nd October – could pave the way for further enhancements.

Although this is only the second Flight event, Twitter is no stranger to hosting conferences, having held a similar event called Chirp back in 2010.
