A Assortment Of Moments From #TwitterFlight
Twitter’s developer convention, referred to as “Twitter Flight” passed off as we speak in San Francisco. Newly topped CEO Jack Dorsey mentioned Twitter’s dedication to the developer group after which the corporate launched over twenty-one new issues in 2 hours. Or a shade over.
It was a extra numerous group of parents than I’ve seen at most tech conferences who each attended and took the stage, I felt. I noticed tweets from others in attendance who felt the identical method. The place appeared packed and I’m positive there have been much more individuals watching the stay stream…hopefully Twitter will share these numbers with us (we’ve requested and can replace if we hear again.)
One of many extra fascinating issues shared on the convention was the truth that Twitter “reaches over a billion individuals.” Thoughts you, that’s not consumer totals, that’s distinctive individuals who have consumed tweets throughout apps and the online.
Some newsy highlights:
– Twitter for Mac is coming again – New instruments to assist builders assist individuals share content material – It’s platform, Material, is now utilized by greater than 225,000 builders on over 1 billion units. – Gnip’s serving to manufacturers perceive audiences higher – And new instruments to curate and publish tweets!

Twitter says it’s devoted to being clear with its developer group, and I chatted with a couple of of them about what occurred at the moment. A number of the suggestions was that the keynote was too lengthy, and others are skeptical on whether or not Twitter will comply with by way of on its guarantees. Regardless, they’re taking Dorsey and crew up on their supply to share their needs and wishes with the hashtag #HelloWorld.
Builders on Twitter: please tweet your concepts and requests utilizing hashtag #helloworld. We’re listening!

Yet one more factor. Geeks have been out in full pressure on Again To The Future Day, that’s for positive. Hell, Twitter even rolled out a DeLorean decked out just like the film automotive at four:29PM (I snuck a glance beforehand). I imply, the occasion was on 10/21/15, so what do you anticipate. The corporate can’t return to a time earlier than builders have been skeptical, however they positive can attempt to pay attention now…and act.
