SHARE THIS NEWSLETTER
Hello, Geeks…! 👋
First things first… We have a NEW Geekout newsletter sponsor!
When I launched this newsletter a little over three months ago, I had no idea if many people would subscribe. I certainly didn’t expect to receive offers of sponsorship! I’m very thankful to the lovely people at Khoros who took a punt on me and this newsletter by becoming our launch sponsor.
We are now on Geekout Issue #13 and today I’m pleased to welcome Sked Social
as Geekout’s new sponsor! Sked Social is an awesome Instagram scheduling and account management tool, and more. Sked Social HQ is based in Australia and the team behind it are some of the loveliest people I know. Some of the world’s most popular and well-known brands use Sked Social to manage their social media presence. I strongly recommend you check it out!
On to something a bit geekier…
A few weeks ago I received a Twitter DM from @nikkastar
. She introduced herself as the new head of research at Twitter. She said she wanted to speak to a small group of heavy-users of Twitter to discuss their pet peeves when using the platform and new features we’d love to see them add.
I had lots of ideas, but there are smarter and more creative people that follow me, so I tweeted asking people to tell me what they’d like Twitter to fix or add. I have fed many of their ideas (and my own) back to Nikkia already. If you’re interested to see what ideas my followers had, or if you want to suggest your own, check out this thread
AND this tweet response from Nikkia
. And no, I don’t want an edit button. Sorry folks.
Right… Let’s dig into all the latest social media news, updates, new features, and more. I spotted a lot of cool stuff this week 😲👇
