SAN FRANCISCO (Hypebot) – Twitter has been expanding its offering far beyond the boundaries of 144 characters. But enhancements rolling out to users starting yesterday, offer an even richer online experience and include a number of opportunities for artists to share a deeper connection with their followers.
On the new Twitter.com, you'll see the familiar timeline, but underneath each Tweet a summary of information. Click on an individual Tweet and a details pane slides out on the right with the content including embedded media.
Multimedia partners include: DailyBooth, DeviantART, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, TwitVid, Ustream, Vimeo, yfrog, and YouTube.
Twitter also said its “Promoted Trends” advertising product sometimes increased the tweets on some topics by as much as 600.
