Today In Communication History

On this date in 1927, the first long-distance TV transmission was sent from Washington, DC, to New York City. The audience saw an image of Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover. Mr. Hoover, speaking in Washington, was seen on television screens at Bell Telephone Laboratories in New York. Others in the picture are Gen. J. J. Carty, Vice President of AT&T, A. E. Berry, President of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Companies, and Judge Stephen Davis, Solicitor for the Department of Commerce.

Quote Of The Day

‘Today we have, in a sense, the transmission of sight for the first time in the world’s history. Human genius has now destroyed the impediment of distance in a new respect, and in a manner hitherto unknown.’
Herbert Hoover

Twitter Sues U.S. Government Over Attempt To Unmask Anti-Trump Tweeters

The U.S. government may be responding to trolls or hunting for leakers. Either way, Twitter is accusing the Trump Administration of exceeding the scope of its rightful authority and flouting the First Amendment by demanding information to unmask the identities of some of the social media service’s users. (THR / THR, Esq.)

In a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California, Twitter revealed the Department of Homeland Security in March had demanded the company reveal who is behind @ALT_USCIS, an anonymous account that has been raising alarms about the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the government’s immigration policies. (Recode)

According to the lawsuit, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents Adam Hoffman and Stephen Caruso sent the administrative summons to Twitter, saying the company was “required to turn over [a]ll records regarding the [T]witter account @ALT_USCIS to include, user names, account login, phone numbers, mailing addresses and I.P. addresses.” (The Hill)

Twitter, which counts Trump among its active users, has a record of litigating in favor of user privacy. “The rights of free speech afforded Twitter’s users and Twitter itself under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution include a right to disseminate such anonymous or pseudonymous political speech,” Twitter said in the lawsuit. (Reuters)

The social media giant contends users are entitled to their anonymity unless they’ve violated a law that would warrant unmasking. The government failed to make that case, the company said. (Bloomberg)

A New Type Of Cord-Cutting:Snipping Broadband

People are starting to chop their subscriptions to save money. This is just another indication that not all is well with the economy. Toni Fitzgerald wrote in MediaLifeMagazine (032917) that ‘when you think of cord cutting, you undoubtedly think of people giving up their subscriptions to pay TV in order to save money. But it may be time to broaden that definition.

There’s new evidence that people are cutting the cord on something else as well–broadband internet. The finding comes in a new report from Ovum, a media and telecom research firm, which notes that several companies have seen more than one quarter of decline in broadband. It notes that most U.S. telecom providers have been losing landline or cable subscribers for years. But now that’s expanded to include broadband. “Cord-cutting started in landlines and gave way to cord-cutting in pay TV in the U.S. We are now entering the realm of triple cord-cutting,” says Kristin Paulin, a senior analyst at Ovum.

During third quarter, AT&T and Windstream saw declines in all three services they offer (broadband, cable and landlines), while Frontier suffered losses in phone and internet. Verizon experienced two quarterly declines in broadband over the past 15 months. A few companies did post broadband gains during third quarter, including Comcast and Mediacom. Others, such as Cablevision, were flat.

Still, Ovum forecasts that broadband decreases will increase over the next few years. There are a number of things playing into the broadband decline. One is certainly the rise of mobile. There’s now a significant slice of the population that relies on their smartphones exclusively for their connectivity outside of work. They can skip the expense of broadband by getting an unlimited data plan and using it for all of their internet needs. The Pew Research Center says 13% of U.S. adults use smartphones only to get on the web, up from 8% three years ago.

Too, the wide availability of wifi makes a broadband connection less necessary than in the past. The number of wifi hotspots quadrupled from 2011 to 2015, according to Informa, and there are more than 50 million hotspots worldwide.

Finally, people want to save money. By eliminating a cable, broadband or landline subscription, or just chopping all three, a family can save hundreds or thousands of dollars each year.

Twitter Moves Ahead With New Feature
Twitter is one way to easily get some customer service. A simple tweet can often get a faster response than finding a customer support number or using email. The social network has a new feature to make support even more personal: Brands can now request and share location data with users via direct messages.

Imagine sending a direct message to your carrier when you have a problem with your phone. The brand manager will get your permission to receive your location data and then they can direct you to the closest store. This could make getting your needs met much faster than searching around your mapping app or Yelp.

Twitter has been beefing up its customer service features for a while now, including single-link feedback buttons and other tools. Wingstop even has an order form built into its direct messages for frictionless ordering. So far, restaurants TGI Fridays and Wingstop are using the location-based APIs, while other brands are sure to follow suit.

NOTE: While Australian considers Prime Time 6P-Midnight, we use the US prime time system to measure television effectiveness in Australia. Thus 7P-10P is the standard from which this rating is based. Newscasts are considered only as newscasts and not television programs inside or outside of this period except in special periods. The % share is based on the Australian Prime Time 6P-Midnight period.
