Jobs at Twitter why work here

Twit­ter was vot­ed the 26th best place to work in 2016 on Glass­door, believe it or not right after Apple (#25). Found­ed in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, the cur­rent CEO,  Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams Twit­ter was designed for all the Atten­tion Deficit types who want their infor­ma­tion short and to the point. Twit­ter has 328 mil­lion month­ly active users world­wide as of 2017, the equiv­a­lent of the entire pop­u­la­tion of the US uses Twit­ter every month.  This is over twice the users of Snapchat’s 150 mil­lion and a frac­tion of Facebook’s over 2 bil­lion month­ly active users. Now you may have heard that Twit­ter has lost its way and growth has slowed or even declined.  How­ev­er this 500 to 1000 employ­ee com­pa­ny should not be over­looked in your search for a great com­pa­ny to take a job with.  While adver­tis­ing rev­enue has declined 8% in 2Q 2017 to $489 mil­lion it’s still a $2 bil­lion dol­lar com­pa­ny. In an inter­view Jack Dorsey spoke of where Twit­ter is head­ed.  Dorsey says Twitter’s role in the world is still focused on bring­ing peo­ple togeth­er.  This includes Twitter’s empha­sis of late on live events.  Dorsey empha­sizes that Twit­ter is the…

Why is Hipstamatic back, and why should you even care?

Why is Hipstamatic back, and why should you even care?

Hip­sta­mat­ic is an app that was launched back in Decem­ber of 2011 as D‑Series. It was one of the first in the pho­to app mar­ket to intro­duce lo-fi instant cam­era or vin­tage aes­thet­ics from any era to your pho­tos. Unfor­tu­nate­ly it was blown out of the water by none oth­er than Insta­gram. Hip­sta­mat­ic founder and CEO Lucas Allen Buick had explained that they were hav­ing a real hard time mon­e­tiz­ing the prod­uct and ser­vice issues made it impos­si­ble to keep the app going even though they had 2 mil­lion down­loads in under a year. The iPhone app has just launched a brand new col­lab­o­ra­tive social pho­to com­po­nent avail­able on iTunes right now called DSPO [pro­nounced Dis-po]. Buick explains that a lot of new tech­nol­o­gy such as Apple’s Cloud­Kit have afford­ed Hip­sta­mat­ic a real chance to get back at it again but the mar­ket is even more com­pet­i­tive three years lat­er. “There aren’t many oppor­tu­ni­ties in life nor busi­ness when we are pre­sent­ed with a redo,” Buick said. “I’m so hap­py to get this oppor­tu­ni­ty. I just hope we got it right this time.” So DSPO is a social cam­era designed to get peo­ple to chat about and share pho­tos. They’re…

Indian e‑traders recognizing the benefits of Twitter

Com­pa­nies in India that main­ly trade via the Inter­net are wak­ing up to the ben­e­fits of engag­ing with users on the social media site, Twit­ter. The 140-char­ac­ter lim­it that each tweet impos­es seems to be enough to per­suade con­sumers to buy. For exam­ple, one of India’s biggest e‑tailers, Flip­kart, used Twit­ter to increase sales of Father’s Day presents. They post­ed an image of a young boy using a land­line tele­phone to call his father and ask for sta­tionery mate­ri­als. The image was titled ‘The orig­i­nal on-line shop­ping’, and seemed to imme­di­ate­ly res­onate with the company’s 135,000 users. Sell­ing social Senior vice pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing at Flip­kart, Ravi Vora, said: “Twit­ter plays a 360 degree role for us. We work on cre­at­ing a des­ti­na­tion where our cus­tomers can have fun, with wit­ty replies and engag­ing con­tests, instead of using it just as a sales plat­form.” Their fel­low e‑tailers, includ­ing Myn­tra, Snapdeal and Jabong, also use Twit­ter to engage with their cus­tomer base, attempt to influ­ence and pro­vide spe­cial­ly tar­get­ed offers. A brand-mar­ket­ing founder and e‑commerce ana­lyst stat­ed that Twit­ter pro­vid­ed access to peo­ple these com­pa­nies would oth­er­wise not be able to reach, and that it not only encour­aged engage­ment, but was…

Twitter shares take a dive on stock market

Twit­ter shares nose­dived ear­li­er this week when they went on sale on the stock mar­ket for the first time. The share price on Tues­day was the low­est lev­el they had been since the com­pa­ny made their Ini­tial Pub­lic Offer­ing (IPO) back in Novem­ber 2013, drop­ping to 17.8% and clos­ing at $31.85. It is esti­mat­ed that approx­i­mate­ly 135 mil­lion shares were trad­ed, a fig­ure ten times high­er than nor­mal. Stock mar­ket ana­lysts attrib­uted the drop in share price to the end­ing of a lock­up peri­od which stopped the major­i­ty of the share­hold­ers, most­ly ear­ly investors and com­pa­ny insid­ers, from being able to sell their shares. This is a com­mon prac­tice for rel­a­tive­ly young com­pa­nies which decide to go pub­lic, as it stops the mar­ket from being swamped with shares. Twit­ter unable to com­pete  The end of the lock­up peri­od arrived at the same time as peo­ple were voic­ing con­cerns about the social net­work­ing site’s abil­i­ty to attract and hold a con­ven­tion­al audi­ence. Twit­ter is often laud­ed as an indis­pens­able tool for busi­ness­es in build­ing a brand and engag­ing with poten­tial cus­tomers. How­ev­er, despite tweak­ing and improv­ing their plat­form, Twit­ter failed to per­form as well as expect­ed, fail­ing to expe­ri­ence the growth…

Want to know who your best Twitter followers are? Try SocialRank, New York-based Modern Media’s first product

Social media man­agers with good mem­o­ries may remem­ber that two young start-up hun­gry New York­ers, Alex Taub and Michael Schon­feld, launched a project called “MVP” (Most Valu­able Fol­low­er) in 2012, which aimed to show Twit­ter users who their most valu­able fol­low­ers were. Sad­ly, its young co-founders both had demand­ing full-time jobs (both were work­ing for payment’s start-up Dwol­la) and even­tu­al­ly had to shut it down. But they’re back in action again with their new com­pa­ny, Mod­ern Mast, and they’re plan­ning to turn the idea behind MVP into a real busi­ness with the launch of Social­Rank, Mod­ern Mast’s first prod­uct. More met­rics Taub and Schon­feld have now left Dwol­la to focus their ener­gies ful­ly on Mod­ern Mast, and they’re billing Social­Rank as a major expan­sion on MVF. The intrigued social media man­ag­er will obvi­ous­ly want to know what Social­Rank offers that MVF didn’t. While the old MVF used the so-called “Gold­en Ratio” to cal­cu­late fol­low­er val­ue (the ratio of your total fol­low­ers to the total num­ber of peo­ple you fol­low), Social­Rank includes oth­er met­rics. As Taub puts it, for Social­Rank: “Val­ue is scarci­ty plus use­ful­ness plus impor­tance.” The appli­ca­tion tracks how often a fol­low­er engages with your account and con­tent, and…
