  1. Twitter launches Communities 

Twitter launches Communities

Twitter has launched a new function called Twitter Communities to (you guessed it) build a sense of community on the platform. The new service allows users to create and join communities that are centred around a specific interest. Each Community allows members to tweet about that Community’s designated subject matter. Posts within a Community don’t generally show up in Twitter’s main feed, but in a designated Community timeline. (Via Digital Trends)

According to data within TikTok’s Path-to-Purchase report, 50% of TikTok users feel ‘joyful, excited, or happy’ about the products they’ve purchased via the app, while TikTok users are significantly more likely to recommend products that they find in their feed. The report also found that TikTok users are 48% more likely to discover new brands or products from celebrities or public figures, 25% more likely to discover them through creators, and 23% more likely to discover them through trending topics or hashtags than on other platforms.
