Twitter Combines Engagements
Apparently, Twitter is experimenting with combining replies, quote tweets, and other such engagements on a tweet into one metric showing how many people are “talking about” it. This might be in an effort to make Twitter engagements more easily accessed by an audience that isn’t native to the platform.

McDonald's Classic Copy & Paste

What Is Cards Against Humanity Up To?
After releasing Cards Against Humanity Saves The World just a few weeks ago, the popular card game company seems to have given up and turned to the snack industry.

Have a wonderful weekend from the Truly Social team!
