Twitter Cards add Deep-Linking in mobile apps

Twitter Cards are being used by more than 10,000 developers, mobile apps and websites to present content, in more ways than one, on Twitter. Content includes user-posted photos, videos, songs and more. Twitter have recently introduced mobile app deep-linking in cards. This feature allows users to tap a link to either view content directly in their app, or download the app, deepening on whether or not they have the app installed. To find out more, click here.

Three new types of Twitter Cards

Well, Twitter has certainly have been busy and has also introduced three new types of Twitter cards including App Cards, Product Cards and Gallery Cards.

Gallery Cards show an album or collection of photographs through a preview of the photo gallery. I like the idea of using Gallery Cards to show an employee’s typical day at work or working on a product/project.

More information about Twitter cards can be found on Mashable.

Rumour has it; Facebook is looking to incorporate hashtags!

Some positives include:

  • You’ll be able to keep better track of what your target audience is engaged in.
  • You’ll gain a better analysis of social media trends.
  • It will help optimise brand pages for Search Engines. Hashtags will help employers get discovered by the right candidates.
