    2. 2. The first place to start is at #music WordPress content distribution to Twitter 5 lines of code, richer more compelling tweets @certified program List IDs are now 64- bit integers What happened to Retweets might happen to @ replies SocialTV analytics
    3. 3.  Twitter just announced that it will be removing its #Music app from the App Store “21 March.”  For those who have already downloaded it, the app will stop working onApril 18. “…. continue to experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity we see every day onTwitter.”
    4. 4.  As each new post is published, a correspondingTweet is automatically posted, making sharing content onTwitter a seamless part of a blogger’s everyday workflow.  Twitter Cards for greater distribution and engagement

    6. 6.  Lithium SocialWeb minesTwitter data for relevant customer discussions and uses the TwitterAPIs to drive real-time customer support and marketing engagement.  ScribbleLive is a leading curation and publisher engagement tool  Follow @certified
    7. 7.  Making room for more lists onTwitter by expanding IDs to 64-bit integers.  If you’re using REST and StreamingAPIs, you should confirm that your database, server- side and client-side code consume the safe string-based identifiers represented in “id_str” fields instead of the integer-based identifiers found in the “id” field ofTwitter List objects and related references.
    8. 8.  Originally people typed RT at the beginning of aTweet to indicate that they are re-posting someone else's content. This wasn’t a twitter feature, it was created by users to signify that they are amplifying another user'sTweet.  Old style RT is arcane, required you to know the command  People subvert it with ‘MT’ for modifications, as adding text shortens the available text for the tweet.  Twitter's Retweet feature makes it easier by helping you quickly share aTweet with all of your followers.  New style Retweets are distinguished by the Retweet icon and the name of the user who retweeted theTweet.You don’t have to know aboutTwitter to Retweet  You don’t see the text ‘RT’
    9. 9.  Originally people typed an @reply as an update posted by clicking the @ and a username as the first characters in a tweet.  Old style @ reply is arcane, required you to know the command  People subvert it with .@username to be a reply all  Twitter don’t want it to be called a reply, they prefer ‘mention’  Twitter's Reply feature might make it easier by helping you quickly mention a user to all of your followers.  New style Replies are distinguished by the Reply icon and the name of the user who retweeted theTweet.You don’t have to know aboutTwitter to Retweet  You don’t see the @username  Twitter are believed to be testing such functionality, with the objective of removing some of the plumbing from the eyes of the end-user.  Developers take note – you can expect more of this as twitter drives up from the commmand line to apps.
    10. 10.  Twitter today acquired  Mesagraph, a French startup  SecondSync, a UK startup,  Track socialTV analytics.  Terms of the deals were not immediately disclosed.
