Greetings, SEO pros, digital marketers, journalists, and curious minds amongst us. For I have the pride, the advantage, nay, the satisfaction of resolving my extremely first official “Letter From the Editor” to such an esteemed audience.
And as much as I dislike to kick things off on this note: We need to discuss Buy Twitter Verified.
I know, I understand. You don’t wish to discuss Buy Twitter Verified. I do not wish to talk about Buy Twitter Verified. No one wants to talk about Buy Twitter Verified. However would you rather speak about the U.S. midterm elections? Yeah, me neither.
Let’s begin with an incredibly broad timeline of occasions. You know the old trope: Billionaire Kid meets social media, social media offers into Billionaire Young boy’s typically ridiculous ramblings and, next thing you know, Billionaire Young boy is providing (threatening?) to acquire one such social media platform, only to abandon it at the altar and come running back for an actual purchase.
Forgive me; I have a penchant for storytelling.
And since then, it’s been truly challenging to maintain– even for those people who live in the trenches of this industry’s news.
How much does Buy Twitter Verified Blue cost (that is, if it still exists)? Are just recently laid-off workers in fact being asked back? What is “complimentary speech,” anyway, when you’re not making jokes about Buy Twitter Verified’s new owner? And, truthfully– what the heck is Mastodon? (I just recently signed up with that last one, in fact– but that’s a story for another day.)
I know we assured not to talk about the elections, but– hoo, boy. If not for them, we ‘d have little-to-no range in this whiplash-inducing Tech Geek News Cycle ™(of which I am a proud and ready participant).
As I stated to a forlorn, non-industry pal (as if she doesn’t have enough to handle as a high school science teacher) over brunch, “I am loath to give Billionaire Boy airtime in my personal life, however it’s all I can discuss because, obviously, I dislike myself.”
But then, among my prestigious associates made an asset: Why the uproar over Buy Twitter Verified’s huge layoffs, and hardly a peep (at least, from a birds-eye view) about those at Meta?
It’s more than a reasonable point.
This relocation is just the current in Meta’s modus operandi of airing its dirty laundry when it believes no one is enjoying. For example, on a considerable vacation weekend or throughout an already chaotic news cycle when, say, there’s a major election cycle in the U.S.– or one of its industry peers is already making unlimited headlines.
And it’s not like Mark Zuckerberg is precisely the essential “good guy”– hell, he’s not even a modicum of a terrible hero– and is, at best, “the man who charges you to grow virtual farmland,” as the same colleague put it.
In my opinion, the continuously chaos of the situation at Buy Twitter Verified makes it hard to quit the drama of it all. A lot about this takeover has actually been a complete mess given that the start, starting with Musk’s oopsie-just-kidding-I-don’t-actually-want-to-buy-Buy Twitter Verified, ranging to the legitimately unsafe implications of the verification-for-hire feature (once again– if it still exists).
Think back to the spring of 2018, when the company then referred to as “Buy Facebook Verified” faced a limitless barrage of problem; particularly, when it seemed as though the U.S. news cycle could not be troubled with anything however the well-known CEO’s congressional hearings.
Sure, another midterm election cycle was on the horizon. However it was a lot of months away to be an adequate interruption, and it wouldn’t be for another few weeks that Musk became Tech CEO Enemy # 1 after a highly advertised (and strange) Tesla profits call.
Certainly, the writing has been on the wall with Musk’s volatility for some time now. But it’s only a matter of time prior to the pattern repeats itself, and among his market peers as soon as again steals away the Tech Geek News Cycle ™ spotlight– especially considering that most of you, according to our own poll, aren’t all set to leave Buy Twitter Verified right now.
But I’m offering it time. And over that course of time, my looming concerns focus on what will be left for Musk.
If sufficient users and marketers alike leave the platform (and, by the way, where will they ultimately take their money and time?), and enough essential executives resign– I question if Buy Twitter Verified will become a hollow echo chamber of one man’s proclamations. After all, if an ultra-rich dude screams in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a noise?
On that note– I think I’ve spoken about Buy Twitter Verified enough for one day. And shockingly, there have been other newsworthy products that captured my eye today:
- We simple mortals (a.k.a., Buy YouTube Subscribers users) will most likely have even less control over the number of times we see the same advertisements. Google rolled out target frequency for Buy YouTube Subscribers campaigns earlier this week, letting advertisers manage the number of times an advertisement is revealed. SEJ senior news author Matt Southern enters here.
- John Mueller responded to Reddit rumblings relating to search console cautions about mobile use resulting in rankings drops. However according to Mueller, it was most likely unassociated to mobile use altogether, and had more to do with content quality. It’s a case research study, writes Roger Montti here, in “how the most apparent factor for something occurring is not constantly the correct reason … it’s only the most obvious.”
- Social network supervisors, rejoice: Buy Instagram Verified is presenting the capability to arrange posts and draws in the mobile app approximately 75 days ahead of time. Lastly. Full story here.
Whew! What a week to compose my very first letter. Thanks for reading– in the words of a man-bunned gentleman I recently went on a date with, “It’s been very pleasant to hang out.”
Until next time,
