Seven years ago, Twitter was just a small, ragtag collection of hackers fighting over the basic premise of the company and struggling to keep the site from crashing every other day.
Twitter has come a long way since then. The company is on track to bring in more than half a billion dollars in revenue this year. It has more than 230 million monthly active users worldwide and some 2,300 employees in offices in San Francisco, New York, London, Dublin and Sao Paulo. It navigated a smooth IPO in November (unlike another social network that shall remain nameless) and is now valued at around $35 billion. Twitter has grown up, but the business still needs to mature. Voici la liste des sites qui ont le plus de likes/partages Facebook et mentions Twitter. L’indicateur Nielsen-Twitter marque un tournant pour l’industrie télévisuelle. Why getting married to the TV industry may not be the road to success Twitter is hoping for.
Ever since Twitter filed the official documents for its initial public offering, there has been a spotlight on the company’s growth plans — and one big component of those plans revolves around being the “second screen” for TV shows, providing the kind of social experience (and ads) that networks are looking for.
But what if shacking up with your television set isn’t the road to riches that Twitter and its investors are hoping for? That’s the prospect that Travis Winkler of Hulu raised in a recent blog post, in which he argued that Twitter’s focus on a tight integration with the television industry limits the company’s potential valuation. Why? For the simple reason that the television world is in the process of being disrupted by a series of systemic forces, including time-shifting, downloading, streaming and fragmentation of the overall market.

But we do know is that the timing is perfect. The fall TV season is just about to begin. That means that shows like Scandal are returning to the TV screen, ready to once again mobilize thousands of #gladiators (as the show’s fans call themselves on Twitter) to comment on each and every twist and turn with countless tweets and clever hashtags. And as they and other TV fans take to Twitter to celebrate their favorite shows and characters, Twitter’s TV ambitions are going to become a lot more obvious. Twitter has long worked to strike partnerships with TV networks who are eager to boost ratings and real-time engagement with tweets. Twitter Releases Spotify App. Remember when Twitter bought We Are Hunted, whose creators then built Twitter’s #music app, which was initially super popular in part due to its cool design and the fact that everybody uses Twitter, but then it ran into a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem?
Near the beginning of that process, We Are Hunted put its Spotify app on hold, presumably because Twitter wanted its own Spotify app, and didn’t want to confuse things by offering two different music charts. On Thursday afternoon, Twitter released its own Spotify app (Spotify link), bringing two of the biggest brands on the internet together. Twitter’s Spotify app plays all of the music it lists, for free, if you have the desktop version of Spotify (the standalone version of Twitter #music linked out to Rdio and Spotify, but this app is arguably more seamless).
And of course these are not lame 30- or 90-second samples — these are the complete songs. Your Twitter account has been hacked! Here's what to do about it. Kirsty woke up to find that someone else had taken control of her Twitter account.

As one ad exec noted, last week's Cannes Lions festival was a great advertising vehicle for both Facebook and Twitter, both of which dominated discussion this year.
While both companies made pitches during the event, the consensus seemed to be that what Twitter lacked in scale, it made up for in agility. In particular, the social network's ability to let marketers capitalize on real-time trends and conversation evoked some envy for its 1.1 billion users-strong rival. Twitter isn't resting on its laurels, though. The company is looking to both solidify its lead in real-time marketing and expand the functionality of tweets. Broadly, those two goals appear to present a roadmap for Twitter's growth over the next year or so. What if Twitter launched a #TV app? Here’s what it could look like. On the VC panel at the Lost Remote Show, Chris Fralic, partner at First Round Capital, praised Twitter’s approach to building a standalone music app that ties to external services like Spotify.
He raised the idea that Twitter could do the same for TV, which certainly sounds plausible, especially as Twitter #Music continues to ride high on the App Store charts. The Twitter #Music app is geared toward serendipitous discovery, so in a similar way, a Twitter #TV app would be a social guide for people who aren’t looking for a specific show, but just want to discover something cool to watch. In the world of media use cases, that remains a big, yet focused problem to solve: aimlessly flipping through channels or scanning a program guide with your remote control is extremely inefficient. However, if Twitter tied the entire app to external services like Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime, it would raise eyebrows among the networks because it discourages live viewing — their bread and butter.
Can Twitter elevate the “second screen” with live video? In what would be an inevitable push for the company building toward a TV-centric future, Twitter is reportedly in talks to add live video to its platform through deals with Viacom and NBC, Bloomberg reported Tuesday. Such a move would make perfect sense considering Twitter’s current trajectory, as the company has worked to build up support for visual media and partnerships with companies in the television industry. Twitter has clearly realized that television and live broadcast events give the company a unique opportunity to harness online conversations happening at a particular moment and then serve up advertising based around those events. So while it’s unclear exactly what a Twitter/TV parternship would look like, it’s easy to see why Twitter would be interested.
