Twitter is doing a not very appreciated experiment, taking away the @ replies. 85 % out of 1440 voted against it when I voted (tuesday 25th of march 22:12) on the The Next Web:s survey on their home page. What do you think of the change? I’m pro for its disappearance.
Also check out your first tweet as Twitter celebrated their 8th birthday with releasing this tool.

So this month, it becomes a little bit clearer just what a brand has to do to strike it big on Instagram: take advantage of the fact that talented people who want to make compelling visual content are out there, and are often excited to be able to help spread the word about a brand with a big following for the increased reach it will give their own page. Even if they don’t work with such creative types directly, brands can certainly learn from them. Some examples of these prime lessons? Post consistently, both in message and in frequency. On that same note, make sure that your account can be found easily, and that users only have to find one account to know it is the brand’s official one.
