Google Could Start Showing Timely Tweets In Search Results Thanks To A Deal With Twitter

According to Bloomberg, Google and Twitter are renewing their vows after breaking up for a few years and recently figuring out through couples' counseling that they couldn't really live apart.

Between 2009 and 2011, the two companies had a deal where Twitter automatically provided its stream of data to Google, which then proceeded to surface relevant tweets in search results. But after the deal expired, Twitter's former COO, Ali Rowghani, was adamant about not renewing it, and Google had to resort to crawling Twitter like it would any other website.

Twitter Reportedly Begins Testing 'Instant Timeline' To Improve The Sign-Up Experience For New Users

Twitter can be an intimidating place for newcomers. The site's timeline is only as good as the content that appears inside it, and until you start following profiles, it's pretty spartan. But the social network knows it has a problem, and it's trying to do something about it.

Twitter already makes recommendations during the setup process that points us towards friends along with popular sources of news and entertainment. Now, according to a report by The New York Times, the site is testing out a new "Instant Timeline" feature that automatically populates a new user's feed until they've figured out how to fill it up themselves.

[I Know What You Did Last Tuesday] Blinq Overlays Your Contacts' Social Updates On Top Of Your Messaging Conversations

Oh my. This is creepy. And cool. Very cool. It has stalker-like potential and unequivocal convenience. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Imagine you get a message from a contact, through SMS, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or other apps. You start talking to said contact and they go on blabbering about some very important event that happened in their life. You haven't the faintest idea what that is because, let's face it, you do not have the luxury of spending your entire day checking Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Falcon Pro was one of the first big Twitter clients to fall victim to the API token limits imposed by Twitter, eventually leading the developer to remove it from the Play Store. Now just a few weeks after announcing a material redesign of the app, here it is. Falcon Pro 3 is available in the Play Store with a (very) limited free trial and in-app purchases for the full version.

Twitter Rescues The Twitpic Domain And Photo Archive, But The Company And Service Is Still Shutting Down

Twitter killed Twitpic. Now Twitter will save Twitpic. Well, sort of. Not really. Kinda. But it's still dead. Alright, try and follow along here: early in September, the original and independent image hosting site for Twitter, Twitpic, said that it was in danger of shutting down after Twitter (the main one) opposed its trademark application. Then Twitpic said they had found a buyer and would remain open. Then they said they wouldn't, and would shut down October 25th, yesterday.

Twitter Client Talon (Classic) Reaches Its Token Limit, Unpublished From Play Store And Going Open Source

The latest Twitter client to fall victim to Twitter's token limits is the classic version of Talon, which is rather fitting seeing as the new Android 5.0 version of Talon was just released this weekend.

Maybe now the reasoning for the separate Talon Plus version is starting to make more sense.
