Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle says, “It’s the epitome of convenience.”
I think it’s silly.
I’m talking about the newest way to order a pizza from Domino’s — via tweet. But here’s where things get ultra-weird. You can either send a tweet to Domino’s using #EasyOrder… or you can send the pizza emoji.
We’ve seen companies fool around with accepting orders on Twitter — [...]
A report out of Bloomberg today reveals that Google and Twitter have shaken hands on a new deal to help new Tweets instantly appear in Google Search results. According to the report, Google has access to “Twitter’s firehose, the stream of data generated by the microblogging service’s 284 million users.” The result will be Tweets showing up in Google Search results immediately after they’ve been posted.
That’s a huge win for both companies. Twitter’s bread and butter – the Tweets [...]
It seems new and exciting changes are coming to the world of Twitter. While the company has been trying lots of different tactics to generate revenue from what is essentially a free-for-all in terms of what it costs and how it functions, Twitter will soon introduce the syndication of promoted Tweets across different platforms, as well as an “Instant Timeline” feature for new users. Is this finally the year Twitter will become profitable?
First, the syndication news: [...]
Welcome to the Weekend Wrap-Up!

Something weird is going on with iTunes Connect today. Users are inexplicably being signed in under different accounts – and that’s kind of not good for a company that’s had recent troubles with security.
Take a look at some of these examples:

Sure, we already had Vine – a way to shoot quick, six-second videos for posting on Twitter and thoroughly weirding people out. But that wasn’t enough for Twitter, the social media company which today announced the launch of Video on Twitter – which is exactly what it sounds like.
Using your mobile Twitter app on either iOS or Android (sorry Windows Phone and BlackBerry), you can shoot [...]
When it comes to social networks, Facebook is pretty much at the top of the heap. There are tons of choices out there, from Google+ to Twitter, from LinkedIn to the sparse Ello – but at the end of the day, everyone who partakes in the aforementioned networks also has a Facebook profile that tends to get the bulk of their social activity. Now, it seems, Facebook isn’t content at being the top casual social network – a new report says that it’s looking to expand into the workplace social [...]
Do you like to watch short, hilarious videos? Do you enjoy obnoxious headline puns? If so, this post is going to make you very happy. I’ve managed to work something groan-worthy into the header text, and Microsoft and Twitter have managed to bring a custom-built Vine app to the Xbox One.

I know what you’ve been thinking: online shopping is just too hard. You have to go to a website and, like, click stuff, and actually think for at least 60 seconds about whether or not you actually want to buy something. You’d much rather have the thinking removed from the equation and just buy things instantaneously. Well, good news! Twitter will let you do that very soon.
A post on the company’s blog today reveals that Twitter is working on [...]
