Twitter has launched a media website dedicate to best practices on the social networking site, seeking to allow government, news websites and non-profits among others how to increase their impact through Twitter.
The company announced on its blog that the new site, media.twitter.com, provided resources for use by anyone on how to make the most if Twitter.
“As Twitter’s role in the media world continues to grow and evolve, we wanted to create a place where people and companies from the worlds of TV, sports, journalism, government, music, faith and nonprofits could have self-service access to ways to increase their impact in the global town square,” the company said.
Twitter said the new site is a searchable database of “how-to” guides curated by the @Twittermedia team.
Twitter, which went public earlier this month, said in September it would begin introducing and removing more features, sometimes on a daily basis.
“A common thread across recent releases has been experimentation. We’ve tested various features with small groups of our 200 million users before determining what we’ll release. These tests are essential to delivering the best possible user experience,” the company said.
The company, however, appears to have given up on its experiment to allow one user to direct message another, even if they are not following each other.
Until last month, Twitter users could only send private messages if they were both following each other, but in mid-October the social network introduced a restricted pilot to relax the rule.
