Thankfully, the company had <a href="https://twitter.com/Marvel/status/525071656306626560">a sense of humour about the situation</a> and decided to simply release the official, high-definition trailer and steal back its own thunder.</p> <p>And it&rsquo;s a scorcher, showing the superhero team in turmoil amidst narration from Ultron himself, voiced by James Spader. We won&rsquo;t spoil anything: watch for yourself if you want a first look at the hugely anticipated comic film sequel, which is due out in May.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmeOjFno6Do">YouTube</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/playstation-4/disney-infinity-20-marvel-super-heroes/review">Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/tmeOjFno6Do" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Drop app lets you tweet songs to a playlist </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Jambox maker Jawbone just debuted a new Twitter-enabled music app called Drop, which lets you tweet songs and commands to a communal playlist.

Like, hey, you like when your favourite writer Tweets about her books and her tour schedule but cringe at her 10,000 photos of her dog, Buster.</p> <p>The makers of the Persona app feel you. Mani and Prabhakar Doraisamy created an app that will let you see the sides of the Twitter personality you follow and choose which side you would rather see. So you can filter out the unwanted breakfast, pet and overly personal Tweets you might not want to read.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You, as a prism </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>What Persona does is look through your Tweets and sort them out into three streams: personal, professional and social. If you find those too confining, perhaps add custom labels instead and use them to tag your Tweets and help Persona&#39;s algorithm learn how to sort what you Tweet.</p> <p>The best thing, though, is that the people you follow on Twitter don&#39;t have to sign up to Persona for you to benefit. Instead, Persona will sift through their profiles and categorise their Tweets for them.</p> <p>There just might be one snag, though. There already is <a href="http://www.persona-co.com/about-us/" target="_blank">a social media service named Persona</a> that is also about image management. It flags content that might be detrimental to your online profile by monitoring your Facebook, Twitter &amp; Google+ accounts.</p> <p>Perhaps a name change might be in order and it might be a neat way of taking into account the people who follow you, without feeling that you have to conform to their expectations. So some will get your business side, some will get your softer side, some will probably try to sell you cookies.</p> <p>So you want to get in on the beta? <a href="http://persona.guesswork.co/" target="_blank">Sign up</a> on the Persona website.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/platforms/twitter">Stay up-to-date on Twitter news without needing to get on Twitter</a><br />[Source: <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/07/prismatic-identity/" target="_blank">Techcrunch</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Persona app could filter out boring Tweets" alt="Persona app could filter out boring Tweets" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/twitter_02.jpg?1410164613" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/persona-app-could-filter-out-boring-tweets/news#comments Twitter Mon, 08 Sep 2014 08:14:17 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1446940 at http://www.stuff.tv Twitpic shuts down, blames Twitter's strongarm tactics http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/twitpic-shuts-down-blames-twitters-strongarm-tactics/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The popular image-sharing service would rather shut down than give up its name </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="570" height="456" title="Twitpic shuts down, blames Twitter&#039;s strongarm tactics" alt="Twitpic shuts down, blames Twitter&#039;s strongarm tactics" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/twitpic_01.jpg?1409910441" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>After six years, Twitpic is closing shop on Sept 25. Why? Because Twitter has threatened to shut off its access to Twitter&#39;s API unless Twitpic drops its bid to trademark its name. Seeing how iconic the name has been for the company and the tediousness of rebranding, it&#39;s no surprise Twitpic has decided a fight is not worth it.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Goodbye, farewell Twitpic </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Users on Twitpic have the option of downloading content uploaded to the service, whether pictures or videos in the next coming days.</p> <p>The threats from Twitter (while not surprising) blindsided Twitpic as, why now after six year? Question is also, why didn&#39;t Twitter just offer to buy the service in the beginning when Twitpic was the favoured way to upload pictures on Twitter when the latter hadn&#39;t added the feature yet?</p> <p>Seeing how aggressive Twitter is now in promoting picture uploads and trying to encourage people to add content to Twitter while also trying to shut out other services like Instagram, it&#39;s no surprise Twitter is going after Twitpic as well.</p> <p>A Twitter spokesperson, in its defence, said it was sad to see Twitpic shut down, emphasising that it did not intend for the service to shutter. &quot;...we made it clear that they could operate using the Twitpic name. Of course, we also have to protect our brand, and that includes trademarks tied to the brand.&rdquo;</p> <p>So long, Twitpic.

You may find friends of friends, or more food porn blogs, or more nature porn blogs. Essentially, both now enable porn of whatever form you may desire. Tapping items may also give you recommendations &ldquo;based on people you follow&rdquo;. Or you may find &ldquo;what&rsquo;s popular within your country&rdquo; which is always illuminating.</p> <p>Instagram&rsquo;s had hashtag support for a long time but the app will begin to track trending hashtags on its revamped Explore page, like Twitter is known for. The name of the game for both social media outlets is hashtags but since Instagram is inherently visually-based it will slot more easily into pop-culture and celebrity events coverage like Fashion Week or the Oscars.</p> <p>In similar ways, Instagram and Twitter both bring celebrity closer to the average plebian. God forbid, we forget the multiple paradigm shifts that were the result of Kanye&rsquo;s career on Twitter. Yet photo posts have always been more engaging than text &ndash; a marketing firm called Shift claims photo Tweets get about 5 times more attention than text-only Tweets.</p> <p>With these changes, it looks like Instagram may be trying to topple Twitter as the leading current events social media outlet. If Shift&rsquo;s claim is to be trusted, that the image engages a user five times more than text (and really, who would argue), they may have a real chance of doing so.</p> <p dir="ltr">In the meantime, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/twitter-thinks-you-need-help-photos-releases-ultimate-photo-guide/news">read about why Twitter thinks you need help with photos</a>.</p> <p dir="ltr">[Source: <a href="http://http://www.theverge.com/2014/8/4/5958837/instagram-is-embracing-its-inner-twitter">TheVerge</a>]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Instagram &#039;s latest update is a lot of Twitter deja vu" alt="Instagram &#039;s latest update is a lot of Twitter deja vu" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/insta_02.jpg?1407227230" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/instagram-s-latest-update-lot-twitter-deja-vu/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/instagram-s-latest-update-lot-twitter-deja-vu/news#comments Instagram Twitter Tue, 05 Aug 2014 08:23:32 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1444078 at http://www.stuff.tv Heineken uses Twitter to find where the cool kids are http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/heineken-uses-twitter-find-where-cool-kids-are/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Using your location, @wherenext helps you find nearby places to chill or eat </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Heineken uses Twitter to find where the cool kids are" alt="Heineken uses Twitter to find where the cool kids are" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/heineken%20hot.jpg?1405583756" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Ever been stuck trying to figure out where to go when you&#39;re bored of your usual hangouts?

Apparently &#39;fear of missing out&#39; (FOMO) is actually a thing.</p> <p>Heineken&#39;s research said people looked for different &#39;social currency&#39; wanting to break from their usual humdrum routines and discover new experiences. New Yorkers place &#39;making it&#39; as the ultimate in social currency while the people in Rio de Janeiro are just happy being, well, happy. Londoners? They prefer defining success on their own terms and personal development.</p> <p>So Heineken sees this as a really creative use of Twitter and planning a global, live televised event featuring people in three cities facing a series of challenges. Think Amazing Race with the consolation of more beer.</p> <p>But what&#39;s different from, say, Foursquare? Now when you&#39;re logged into Foursquare on your phone it pops up and tells you a friend of yours is there or said friend made recommendations. In this case perhaps it&#39;s more because Heineken&#39;s using Twitter location-based data while Foursquare relies on its own database of users.</p> <p>Still, Heinken&#39;s @wherenext is a nice option for those nights when you&#39;re bored and out of ideas.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.theheinekencompany.com/media/media-releases/press-releases/2014/07/1822551" target="_blank">Heineken</a> via <a href="http://www.psfk.com/2014/07/heineken-fomo-twitter-service.html#!bgDetR" target="_blank">PSFK</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/hiUsikDoU1Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/heineken-uses-twitter-find-where-cool-kids-are/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/heineken-uses-twitter-find-where-cool-kids-are/news#comments Twitter Thu, 17 Jul 2014 07:55:22 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1442355 at http://www.stuff.tv Twitter quietly testing out 'Buy Now' button http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/twitter-quietly-testing-out-buy-now-button/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Mobile Tweets linking back to company Fancy could be beginning of more Twitter monetisation </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Twitter quietly testing out &#039;Buy Now&#039; button" alt="Twitter quietly testing out &#039;Buy Now&#039; button" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/recode%20buy%20now.jpg?1404195314" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Mobile Twitter users might have spotted something new on the social media service: a &#39;Buy Now&#39; button.

Well, to be honest the guide tells you a few things you can pretty much figure out on your own if you&#39;re already on Instagram, Facebook or any other photosharing app.</p> <p>But the rub here is that certain features are not as easy to figure out on Twitter&#39;s app as it is to figure out on Instagram like the filter and crop features.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hey look, share your photos </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Twitter is losing out in the photo stakes when compared to other services, which is probably the reason why it&#39;s trying to push photos now. But is it a case of too little, too late?</p> <p>Most people who are only into sharing photos are already doing it on Instagram while some people find album settings on Facebook more appealing. Facebook&#39;s offering makes it easier to ensure that only a select group of people see your photos (no boss to see you holidaying on your sick day).</p> <p>Still being able to display multiple photos and finally adding cropping as well as filters to your Twitter photos are good additions. But rather than a guide, Twitter might be better off tweaking its mobile apps to be more user-friendly especially for those who are not quite as tech-savvy.</p> <p>Another thing Twitter is missing is probably a &#39;killer&#39; feature, something that only Twitter can offer to its users. Besides its social network, of course. At this rate a Twitter/Vine merger could be the best thing to happen to Twitter as it combines short burst of videos with short 140-character messages.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://pando.com/2014/05/08/in-a-heavy-handed-attempt-to-get-users-to-upload-more-images-twitter-releases-an-ultimate-guide-to-photo-sharing/" target="_blank">PandoDaily</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Twitter sharing and filters" alt="Twitter thinks you need help with photos, releases ultimate photo guide" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Twitter%20sharing.jpg?1399603341" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/twitter-thinks-you-need-help-photos-releases-ultimate-photo-guide/news#comments Twitter Fri, 09 May 2014 02:40:11 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1436798 at http://www.stuff.tv Amazon now lets you add basket items via Twitter http://www.stuff.tv/my/amazon/amazon-now-lets-you-add-basket-items-twitter/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Like you needed an easier way to give Amazon your money </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="#AmazonBasket" alt="#AmazonBasket" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/amazonbasket.jpg?1399368265" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Online mega-retailer Amazon today announced a new kind of integration with Twitter, which lets users add items to their online baskets with a simple hashtag.</p> <p>Linking your Twitter profile to your Amazon account is a necessary first step, but once that&rsquo;s done, simply reply to any tweet with an Amazon.co.uk link using the hashtag &ldquo;<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/socialmedia/amazoncart/ref=amazoncart_surl_amazonbasketlp">#AmazonBasket</a>&rdquo;
