Happy Birthday to the Tweet!

What’s been shared on Twitter in the past 11 years? This infographic explains!

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the very first Tweet sent. In those 11 years, we have been witness to many momentous Tweets from the social media platform. With over 319 million monthly active users, the social media giant estimates that in every second around 6,000 Tweets are sent out into the world. Of course many of those are mundane but there have definitely been many interesting ones!

Tweets are used by individuals to voice their opinions on everything from their favorite trending TV show to comedic GIFs, or a favorite new fashion item to sporting occasions; we have also seen Tweets used to further people’s political campaigns. Journalists have been major adopters of Twitter and actively use the platform to disseminate their content along with most publishers all over the world, too. While a Tweet is constrained by a limit of 140 characters, it seems a lot can be said even with that!

The team over at Carvaka Adult Toys are avid Twitter users and fans, and they have produced the infographic below, which examines the history of the Tweet, right back to the very first one by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey. It details some interesting facts such as the origins of the hashtag, the top Tweets from 2016, the most followed accounts and some fascinating statistics and data around Twitter use.

Out of Marketing Luck? 6 Lessons from ‘Schitt’s Creek’

I love binge-watching television shows on Netflix, especially since the service allows you to watch multiple seasons at once instead of having to wait each week for a new episode of a show to air. While browsing through my suggested titles, I came across a comedy gem that has quickly become one of my favorites, Schitt’s Creek. The Canadian show, created by father and son team Eugene and Daniel Levy, is about the fictional Rose family, which includes parents John (Eugene Levy) and Moira (Catherine O’Hara), and adult children David (Daniel Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy). So far two full seasons of Schitt’s Creek are now available on Netflix, but if you can’t wait to watch Season 3, catch it Wednesdays at 8pm/7pm Central on Pop TV.

Once modern royalty due to the success of John’s ‘Rose Video’ chain of stores, they have fallen on hard times after the government seized their property because their crooked business manager allegedly failed to pay taxes. This leads to the family moving to the Podunk, rural town of Schitt’s Creek that John once purchased as a joke gift for David, simply because of the name. This fish-out-of-water saga is filled with awkward hijinks, culture shock and gut-busting laughs. It’s also filled with lessons that can be applied to public relations; read on to learn six of them.

6 Public Relations Lessons from ‘Schitt’s Creek’

1. Have a Backup Plan, Just in Case

It’s important to always have a Plan B and avoid “putting all of your eggs in one basket.” In Schitt’s Creek, if the Rose family hadn’t have bought the town as a joke purchase back in 1991, they’d be homeless and living on the streets. Luckily for them, they have this one asset that the government allowed them to keep as a backup plan. They are forced to move into the town’s only motel and squeeze their formerly lavish life into just two modest rooms. Continue reading
