image thumb60 Twitter Follows Facebook Movie With A Funny YouTube Parody

If Facebook does it so should every other social network. Well at least create a mock. There has been a lot of hype with the upcoming Facebook movie; The Social Network and it has caused quite some parodies coming up. But this Twitter Movie trailer quite hilariously puts the purpose of Twitter in motion.

The mock is being titles The Twit Network and is hitting hard on the Social Network trailer , highlighting a few facts added with exaggerated bits on Twitter cofounders; Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone and Ev Williams. I particularly liked the man bleeding and asking his wife to call 911 and she, pretty like any Twitter addict wonders if they too have a Twitter handle.

Looks as if the micromessaging service, Twitter is taking advertising seriously. Reports today state that folks at Twitter have bolstered their ad platform by hiring Dan Coughlin who had been with Facebook since 2006. Coughlin will take charge as the Director of Sales for Eastern Region in the US.

That wasn’t the only notable induction as Twitter also fished Amanda Levy of Yelp. She will be taking position as Director of Sales in the Western Region, bringing over 5 years of experience to the Twitter ad team. Both have a good number of years to back their selection, with Coughlin who was the director of media sales, Facebook, and prior to this, held the same position at Yahoo for over 5 years. This is of course other than his stints at MarketWatch and DoubleClick. Levy on the other hand was Yelp’s first salesperson, where she headed sales for Yelp at the West Coast.

image thumb25 End Of Confusion: TwitterShoutOut Isn’t a Feature/Function To Be Of Twitter

I was wandering the whole day after reading about the possible Twitter feature to be; the @TwitterShoutOut. Right from reading about it, I just thought what this was about, perhaps a recommendation engine that does something beyond @replies or the ever popular #followfriday.
