Currently I’m working with my dev team on implementing Twitter cards. These are scheduled to launch during this the upcoming dev sprint. Given the constant updates from Twitter cards, it looks like I may need to revise my briefing. Just kidding, but just in some exciting news from that gives insight into just how Twitter is moving towards becoming a major paid social media marketing platform. On another note, make sure that ad copy is remains Twhimsical!
Twitter unveiled the Lead Generation Card today, a new expandable tweet format which allows users to show their interest in a particular discount or offer that’s being promoted by their favorite brand.
When a user expands the tweet, they’ll see a description of the offer, as well a small button underneath that will allow them to instantly send their basic contact information – name, Twitter handle and email address – to the brand or business in question.

This is really exciting news and shows how much LinkedIn is the social channel for the professional world.
LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional online network with over 2million users in 200 countries worldwide has had a makeover. The site now allows users to upload videos, images and presentations amongst other rich media to showcase their work and skills. The new ‘LinkedIn Professional Portfolio’ helps to turn the previously text-only resume site into a portfolio platform with interactive features such as a like button and comment boxes. Users can upload visual content to the ‘Summary,’ ‘Experience’ and ‘Education’ sections to sit alongside fewer more concise words.
