What's Next for Twitter?

People send 95 million tweets on Twitter every day. This CBS News video reports that Twitter is going to partner with several news networks and build a "Twitter News Network,” which will probably take Twitter to another level --- an “information center” of every updates one wants to know.

I have signed up for a Twitter account (@LinchiKwok) for almost a year. I also talked about the influence of Twitter on my blog many times (e.g. The Power of Twitter Complaints; Twitter: An Effective Way to Communicate between Restaurants and Customers; my personal experience with Twitter!Places). However, I have to admit that I have not discovered the full potential of Twitter.

Up until last week when a student in my class (@acgott) showed me his enthusiasm about Twitter and how he used Twitter to engage with others, my interest of conducting a research study on Twitter was greatly increased. What is your personal experience with Twitter? How does Twitter help you achieve your business and/or your personal goals?

  1. Twitter is a very neat thing that is quickly spreading. Unfortunately most people do not think of it that special. If you ask the common person that has not truly experienced twitter they would consider it no different than a list of everyone’s Facebook updates. Twitter is more than that. It is a way you can receive news from all different aspects of the world. You can receive news from CNN, sports updates from ESPN and even updates from famous celebrities such as Al Gore and Ivanka Trump. It is a great way to get plenty of information on one source rather than just going to each individual website to try and get that information.

  2. On a daily basis, I find that I am receiving news first from Twitter. I can constantly see what my friends are doing, as well as what is going on in our country at the time. NY Times and USA Today both have Twitter accounts along with many talk show hosts and ESPN. It is interesting to see what your favorite actors and athletes are doing on a daily basis. I have a Twitter application on my phone, so it is by far the most convenient way to receive my news on the go. Many businesses are starting to create Twitter accounts because they are coming to realize that Twitter is a great resource to reach the consumer quickly.

The challenges of SB 93 (California Senate Bill No. 93) will impose on the employers and their human resource management team (by Brittany Schaffer)

The COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and it has caused massive changes within a short period of time. One of the most rememberable effects of the COVID-19 pandemic was that businesses had to come to a complete halt, forcing them to lay off employees. California's unemployment rates went up.  Now that the stay-at-home orders have lifted, people start to come out. Businesses are now reopening, looking to rehire their laid-off employees. Before the pandemic, employers had the option of recalling only a certain number of laid-off employees they would want to rehire based on employees' job performance. That option had been changed after Governor Gavin Newsome signed into law - Senate Bill 93, which went into effect on April 16th, 2021. The California Senate Bill No. 93 (SB 93) According to SB 93, companies in specific industries, mainly the hospitality industry, have the obligation to provide job opportunities in written form to qualified employees being laid off due to COVI

The complicated situation of tattoos in the workplace (by Harry Law)

Tattoos are a form of expression that convey the individuality of their owners. They can represent a multitude of things, like a tie to a family member, a favorite quote with a special meaning, or even a favorite cartoon character. Tattoos also can carry great cultural and/or religious significance. Every tattoo is unique and says something about the individual person who wears it. The problem that many companies face is when a tattoo is considered appropriate and when it should be covered.  Employees are after all the faces of a company, so the tattoos on their bodies are connected to and represent that company as well. Some workplaces have instituted rules and regulations when it comes to their employees’ tattoos, but there can be negative consequences when a company goes too far in telling their employees what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. The Disney Company has recently changed its policy on tattoos. Disney’s goal is to create a magical, fantasy experience for their
