Promoted Tweets Annoy Me

3 Nov 2013

I’ve been wrestling with the subject of promoted tweets for a while and I think I’ve come up with a solution. A solution that makes me feel better, at least. Promoted Tweets Aren’t That Bad They really aren’t. Actually, they’re a good thing and I fully support them. Provided they are relevant to me, that […]

My Twitter has been hacked, what do I do?

9 Oct 2012

Every now and then, Twitter seems to get hit by what we in the business call “phishing” attacks.

Mobile apps – the process must change – Android iPhone

2 Apr 2011

Twitter’s recent(ish) developer crushing announcement got me thinking. While a lot of independent developers might not like their new rules, Twitter does have the right idea in as much as they want to deliver a consistent experience across all platforms and devices. Shame there’s no sign of that in their own mobile & web apps […]

Is sharing really caring?

15 Mar 2011

When I hit the “Publish” button on my blog post”Social media suicide – the conclusion” the other day I thought I was done with that topic. I had found out what I wanted and it was now time to move on… that was until I found myself sat on the train tonight, reading my feeds […]
