In June of this year, we published an infographic listing all of the sizing information for images on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest. It was a wildly successful piece of content, totally blowing our expectations out of the water. Unfortunately, while its popularity has flourished, nearly every social network instituted changes to their image sizes, rendering most of the information on the infographic out of date.
You may be new to Twitter, or you may have been around for awhile.
This is the second post in a series about how Emily Turner invented the @MrsJLSnowman Twitter account.
In my last post, I outlined how to remove some of your sticky ”followed non-followers” in your Twitter account. These are the accounts listed in your FriendorFollow array as the ones you follow but they don’t follow you and they just won’t disappear.

Facebook has always wanted to edge in on Twitter’s Interest Graph.
Twitter is part of the changing landscape of communication and marketing that is transforming commerce, mobilizing political movements and spreading news in real time. It is global, it is public, it is private and it is also an enigma. Apple has embedded Twitter in its latest mobile operating system iOS5 and the “Tweet” now appears in the menu along with email and texting in your new iPad, iPhone and iPod.

The Television and the TV remote now has some electronic competition!

I’m not talking about the occasional drunk text that you embarrassingly send one person. I’m talking about when you accidentally blast your audience with something that you maybe should have taken five extra seconds to think through.

There a lot of similarities between Twitter and Google when you really look at how they started out. In the beginning, Google, just like Twitter, didn’t have a revenue model to apply to their increasingly popular product. Both companies didn’t want to clutter their product with ads and paid announcements since they felt the Internet already had too much of that as they grew bigger and more popular.
Do you know if your Twitter marketing is working?
No. It’s actually a picture from 2011, of a thunderstorm over Manhattan during a tornado alert (which turned out to be uneventful in the end, although the US and other countries were struck with an unusually high number of tornados that year ). The original source appears to be this Wall Street Journal article , and the picture was taken through a tinted window by a finance professional called Charles Menjivar (from his workplace, most likely - his current employers are situated pretty much where this picture looks to be taken from). It is traditional, when the US is menaced by a weather event, for people to tweet pictures of things that aren’t it.
