No, we’re not talking about the Kardashian babygate, we’re talking about Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s announcement that a new 280 character limit is being trialled on the network. It’s an idea that’s been toyed with for a while, but Dorsey’s (deliberately verbiose?) Tweet confirmed it.

The 140 character limit is Twitter’s key USP, and the snappy nature of the platform is what forces uses to be sharp-witted and quick to react. Tweets are rapid-fire and easy to digest, which is why millions of users turn to the platform to source the latest news stories...

Gain Greater Reach & Engagement By Understanding Facebook’s News Feed Algorithm

[vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1505828689805{margin-top: 20px !important;margin-bottom: 20px !important;}"] If Facebook was a city, its News Feed would be the Metro at rush hour, with users desperately clamouring for space and attention. The platform is now fit to burst, with usage at an all-time high. Each minute, 300 new profiles are made, 293,000 statuses are updated, 510,000 comments are published and 136,000 photos are shared. It goes without saying that getting noticed is becoming more and more difficult. This surge in published content has made life especially hard for businesses. Despite knowing that Facebook is one of the most essential social platforms for a company, gaining exposure in a cramped News Feed is becoming tougher each day.

Another report found that publishers experienced another...
