Twitter CEO’s weak argument why investors shouldn’t fire him

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey might not spend six months a year in Africa, claims the real product development is under the hood, and gives an excuse for deleting Vine before it could become TikTok. Today he tweeted, via Twitter’s investor relations account, a multi-pronged defense of his leadership and the company’s progress.

6 Ways Influencers Can Control and Market Products

This coming July will mark ten years that I’ve been blogging. I’ll be honest, those years have flown by and a lot has changed over the years. At the beginning, you had to have a strong presence on Facebook and that was about it. Twitter came along, then Pinterest and other platforms were starting to form. Instagram started to become popular and Vine came out of nowhere. My kids keep me on my feet as to what’s popular these days. Snapchat burst upon the scene and is still one of the top social ...

Vine Started The Short Video Craze, And Then Died – But It May Be Back

Vine was introduced in 2012, bought by Twitter, and killed in 2016. But in its time, it “turned everyday people into stars on other platforms and beyond. Its musical whims warped the music industry. It cultivated memes that might have been dismissed as inside jokes if not for their tendency to flourish outside the app.” Can the app make a comeback in 2020, where TikTok rules the internet? – The New York Times

Who made and owns TikTok?

With 1.5 billion users, this makes TikTok the most popular social media app in the world right now, but who owns the short form video sharing app and is your personal information on the app safe? TikTok is the number one (non-gaming) app in the world, but the app largely remains a mystery to those outside of Gen Z. After the death of Vine in 2016, ByteDance were quick to fill the void with a similar short form video app, largely focused around lip-syncing. Chinese company ByteDance, ...

How Dubsmash revived itself as #2 to TikTok

Lip-syncing app Dubsmash was on the brink of death. After a brief moment of virality in 2015 alongside Vine (R.I.P), Dubsmash was bleeding users faster than it could recruit them. The app let you choose an audio track like a rap song or movie quote and shoot a video of you pretending to say the words. But there was nowhere in the app to post the videos. It was a creation tool like Hipstamatic, not a network like Instagram. There’s a reason we’re only using one of those today. So in 2017 Dubsm...
