Twitter Unveils Sweetstorm Share Function. Twitter is introducing a feature that makes the so-called tweetstorm an official part of its service. The new feature is rolling out now (though it may take a few weeks to get to everyone) and it allows users to compose a thread of multiple tweets almost as easily as a single tweet, with a new “+” menu that allows you to link more than one tweet at a time. While tweetstorms have long been popular among power users, Twitterhasn’t always made composing threads easy on its end, despite efforts to make it simpler over the years. Now, not only will Twitter allow you to create tweetstorms right from its app and website, it will make it much easier to view lengthy threads with four or more tweets via a new “show this thread” option that will “unfurl” linked tweets. Twitter confirmed earlier this year that it was testing such a feature, though this is the first time it’s been made available beyond beta testers. As the company points out in a blog post, the update is meant to make threads more approachable to all of Twitter’s users, not just the power users. But outside of that, embracing long threads and tweetstorms is just another sign that the company is increasingly looking for ways to help users move beyond its once rigid 140-character constraint.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Disney Buys 21st Century Fox

A deal that would have been unimaginable just a couple months ago has now been finalized:Walt Disney Company announced that it will acquire 21st Century Fox, including Twentieth Century Fox movie and TV studios, most of its cable networks, international assets like Star and Sky and its stake in Hulu for $52.4 billion, per Adweek. The deal will be an all-stock transaction. To complete the integration, stated the New York Times, a legacy-defining task, Robert A. Iger, Disney’s chief executive, agreed to renew his contract for a fourth time, delaying retirement from July 2019 to the end of 2021. The deal, according to Deadline, officially valued at $66.1 billion including assumption of debt, will create an entertainment colossus that expands Disney’s footprint in every area. The agreement encompasses Fox’s prolific film and television studios, its FX and National Geographic cable networks, its regional sports networks, its 39 percent stake in U.K. satellite television provider Sky and its international cable networks, including Star India. It also includes one of the most coveted film libraries in the game—something that will be important as Disney pursues its ambitions to become a streaming media giant that challenges Netflix and forges direct relationships with consumers. Disney is already a media and entertainment giant, with ABC, ESPN, Pixar, and the Marvel and Star Wars film franchises in its portfolio, stated the USA Today. Last year, Disney was the first studio to take in more than $7 billion at the box office globally, with films including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Captain America: Civil War, Finding Dory and live-action film The Jungle Book. Streaming is a market Disney plans to break into in a big way. This year, the company announced two coming services: one, powered by sports programming from ESPN, set to begin next year and another, scheduled for 2019, to be built around movies and TV shows. Disney hopes the Fox television juggernaut can supercharge its ambitions by producing original series for the services and providing access to a catalog of older offerings. Fox would also contribute its stake in Hulu, the streaming service that shows ABC content and original programming like The Handmaid’s Tale, giving Disney a majority share.
