Have you ever thought of how busy twitter is with all the hash-tags and feeds flooding in every minute? Well, it’s about to get even busier, good news? The microblogging service has now unblocked auto-playing video ads for advertisers. So get used to the idea because, hence forth Video Website Cards are available to any and every ad-buyer. So if you thought Twitter was busy before, wait till you start seeing them ads. One thing though, videos do not seem to work with embeds.
Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read messages called “tweets”. Registered users can read and post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS or mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco and has more than 25 offices around the world.
Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone, and Noah Glass and launched in July 2006. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with more than 100 million users posting 340 million tweets a day in 2012. The service also handled 1.6 billion search queries per day. In 2013, it was one of the ten most-visited websites and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet”. As of March 2016, Twitter has more than 310 million monthly active users.
