Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Users can group posts together by topic or type by use of hashtags – words or phrases prefixed with a "#" sign. Similarly, the "@" sign followed by a username is used for mentioning or replying to other users. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. The Twitter Web interface uses the Ruby on Rails framework. The service's application programming interface (API) allows other web services and applications to integrate with Twitter.

Trying to open web links, it defaults to Google.com. Windows 8, Lenovo lap top. I receive an e-mail from Twitter with a link to go to the website from which the short Tweet was originated. This only opens a new Google browser. I have only used this device a few times and not familiar with Windows 8 settings.

qqq
The links in that Tweet are supposed to to go the website(s). I see it trying to get there in the address bar but it then goes to Google.

What settings (all of them) do we need to make our Twitter page public, so others can see photos, etc.
--------------------------
We send a Tweet to someone and all we get is "it was sent successfully." That does not assure us that it was received.

I am a heavy Twitter user and now I am hearing that the Indian government is hiring data experts and buying a surveillance/spy software to find people's whereabouts like in China. Because they don't like the dissent. There are many activists out there (myself included) who would like to be secured to the hilt against this new government spying software too.

What should I do beside running TOR.
Can they trace my phone number?

Any answer would be appreciated.

I am in the process of syncing our company Facebook via a third party for a press release. I went into my Chrome settings to allow popups for this website so I could connect our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. However, when I went to connect Facebook, I keep getting a pop-up window with the below error.

Any suggestions on how I can fix this so we can connect our Facebook account as a reference for the press release?

Thanks in advance!

If I tweet a link Twitter automatically picks a picture it embeds into that tweet. Is there some way to point out to Twitter (and perhaps also all the other social media sites Facebook, Instagram, ...) what picture to pick? Especially when you not integrate the typical set of social media buttons offering to post about the page, but if someone just posts a link to say a blog article? Is that perhaps simply the biggest picture detected to come from the same origin?

And if there is such a mechanism, can you even tell twitter to rather not display some picture, especially with a webpage not so well known and mostly textual, where the most prominent picture rather is a site logo only?

As one example I see links to Quora answers having pictures not even part of that answer as if there is some hidden tag or meta info as an official way to tell social media what picture to embed. If there is, how does this work generally? When something applies to Twitter, does it also apply to Twitter apps like HootSuite?

That's a bit fuzzy question, but I'd take any helpful hint on social media optimization. Is that a thing at all, aside from SEO?

how to identify which website my web link came from without using UTM codes

I have a website
www.mycompany.com

now I create a link on my facebook page

www.mycompany.com

and I also create a link on my twitter page

www.mycompany.com


What I want to know is there a way for me to trace which website (facebook or twitter) the person used the link,  I know I can just add utm_source to the web-link as a paramter and create a modified link for each website.
But what I want to do is have the same web link just the www.mycompany.com, and push that link to any website. So that if anyone clicks on that link I will be able to see which website they came from

I am wondering if there is any data that comes along with the link that would enable me to work out which site the link came from

FYI if you post to Twitter
Starting tomorrow, Twitter will no longer allow you to post the same message to multiple accounts simultaneously. Twitter developers explained on their blog this change is to ensure Twitter is free from spam. This change may be due in part to all the issues Facebook has been seeing with spam and "fake news". Will this help Twitter or should this have just been in place all along?

This change may be due in part to all the issues Facebook has been seeing with spam and "fake news".

Twitter's fake news issue is much larger than Facebook's, thanks to the anonymous nature of their platform.

Twitter is just now giving some transparency to users, by publishing guidelines for how-to not get your account purged as a bot. Last month they purged a ton of bots and a lot of 'real' accounts were caught in the cross-fire:
https://www.theverge.com/2018/2/21/17032798/twitter-russian-bot-purge-conservative-complaint

These mass bot purges are becoming commonplace:
https://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/twitter-suspends-army-of-fake-accounts-after-trump-thanks-propaganda-bot-for-supporting-him/

Twitter is plagued with bots. Apparently a common thing bots do is post the same thing over and over. Now if you are programming a bot, you know not to do that.

I ran across some python code that allows continuous, live plotting of twitter stream data and sentiment rating. When the author of the code demonstrated it on Youtube, he was able to plot the twitter in a graph, and the graph updated  with each tweet. However, when I run the same code, I get one graph for each tweet and the plot points do not form a continuous line--instead the output consists of one graph, one plot point for each tweet. I would like to  get the graph to show the plotted point for all tweets in one chart in a continuous line.

BTW I am not the  only person who ran into this same problem with the code.  FYI I am currently running python 2.7,  in a Spyder 3.2.8 development environment on Mac.  I have attached the code (without access key information) and it has not been altered from the author's version. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi there, just curious if anyone can help me with an IFTTT applet ?

What I need to do is...
If a specific user on Twitter tweets something, then send that tweet to a FB Group Chat

I can see alot of similar ones, like twitter post and send an FB msg, but not to group chat

Would facebook provide any evidence under any circumstances if copies of a users posts etc were required, and to whom would they release this information, e.g. only law enforcement?

Also if a user deleted a post - would FB be able to prove a post ever existed?

When I first got about 3,500 followers on Twitter, I got responses when I sent out something of interest. Today, I may get one Like.

It's politically charged...but I send out dud after dud, and it seems like wasted time.

I still have just as many followers.

What could it be?

Could Twitter have blocked my account? And be sending to a tiny fraction of my follower base?

Is your company exploring social sharing platforms? Here are some things to consider before you commit.

Reaching the point of successful social media marketing campaign requires great writing expertise and promotional tactics equally. Here are some tips to write an effective and inspiring social media post.


Set Your Tone for Marketing On Social Media:
Do you want to make your presence distinct and more unique than others? First set the basic style in which you will convey the message to your audience. What will be your voice tone? Will it professional, formal, or casual? Know your audience that to whom you are writing for. What is your brand mission and why you promote it on social media? Consider these questions and develop a powerful strategy.


Modify Your Post for Different Media:
Each social media platform has different features and audience. It will not work if you create a single post and share on all social media sites. The advertising content on Facebook will be appreciated when the post has balance optimization in content, photos, and description. On Twitter, you should focus on hashtags and include highly specific keywords in them to become more visible. Instagram and Pinterest are image revolving sites so posting highly interactive images which maximize the attraction of your target audience.


Your Audience Your Priority:
Social media is a connection platform where people like to share stories, beliefs, and what they love or not. To adapt the friendly …

Hi, we joined twitter before we had a smartphone, so the phone number on the account is a landline. Now we're locked out, and the only screen says, "Confirm your phone number and we'll send you an SMS message with a code". And they show the landline number.

We have no option to change the phone number, and the only options are "Help" Which is NO help, or log out.

Is there a way we can sneak in and change our phone number? Or is there an actual support email for twitter? Or anything that would actually help instead of being a total pain in the butt? Do you sense my frustration?

 :) Thanks for your help in advance.
