What’s up with Twitter today?

Dallas Social Media J.R. Atkins uses TwitterDid you see the email from Twitter today? Just in case you missed it, I have reposted it here:

New things are always happening here at Twitter HQ. We’re growing at a rapid pace, and our commitment to simplicity, transparency, and reaching every person on the planet continues. We thought you might be interested in knowing about some of our most recent developments:
  • A new weekly email that delivers the most interesting news and items you might have missed from the people you’re connected to on Twitter.
  • Now Twitter is in more languages than ever. Check for your preferred language and change your setting.
  • Download the latest Twitter mobile apps at twitter.com/download.
  • There’s more to Discover on Twitter.com – try out the new Discover tab.
In addition, we’ve made a number of updates to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
Here are some of the main changes to our Privacy Policy, with links for more information:
  • We’ve provided more details about the information we collect and how we use it to deliver our services and to improve Twitter. One example: our new tailored suggestions feature, which is based on your recent visits to websites that integrate Twitter buttons or widgets, is an experiment that we’re beginning to roll out to some users in a number of countries. Learn more here.
  • We’ve noted the many ways you can set your preferences to limit, modify or remove the information we collect. For example, we now support the Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting, which stops the collection of information used for tailored suggestions.
  • We’ve clarified the limited circumstances in which your information may be shared with others (for example, when you’ve given us permission to do so, or when the data itself is not private or personal). Importantly, our privacy policy is not intended to limit your rights to object to a third party’s request for your information.
In our Terms of Service, we’ve clarified how your relationship with Twitter works and made a number of small changes and formatting improvements, such as new headings for easy reference and updated descriptions of our services.
Take a moment to read our new Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and thanks for using Twitter.

ReTweet helps you Measure your Twitter Success

  • Retweet stats
  • Top retweets
  • Who you retweet

It’s easy to get started, just go to http://retweet.co.uk/ sign in with your Twitter account Id and Password and you will begin seeing your stats. There is also a function called “Share these Stats” that allows you to publish your results to your team.

For retweet to become meaningful to your company or brand you will need to compare the statistics to your goals. Until then, the retweet results are more antidotal. Still, for the prices, retweet is a viable tool to measure your twitter success. Good luck and let me know how retweet works for you.
