PLATFORM NEWS

1.Twitter’s working on a ‘Leave This Conversation’ option

twitter conversation

Twitter is working on the next stage of its interaction management options, with a new ‘Leave This Conversation’ option in testing, which would better enable users to avoid negative discussions. The new process would enable users to untag themselves from a discussion, and keep them from being mentioned again within that thread. It would also ensure the user receives no further notifications about that specific discussion thread.

2. What’s behind big tech’s rush to launch AR products for retail brands?

weekly marketing news

When it comes to augmented reality (AR), a rising tide floats all boats. When consumers play Pokémon Go or a promotional game, they become used to the capabilities of AR using their personal technology. For the retailers, that then creates a new audience of consumers ready and willing to be marketed and sold to using AR – provided that you can wow them with your execution.

Emirates is no stranger to far-out television commercials, but its latest release took things to the next level as a member of its cabin crew stood at the tip of the world famous Burj Khalifa. The 30-second clip begins with a member of its cabin crew holding various welcoming messages, before the camera pans out to reveal her standing at the tip of the iconic landmark.

4. As brands reach for diverse customers, McDonald’s launches a Saweetie celebrity meal

Multi-platinum rapper Saweetie, who rose to fame with her hit single “Icy Girl,” is teaming up with McDonald’s to bring a little twist to her favorite menu order for her fans. Saweetie marks the first female musician, and the first African-American female musician, to have a celebrity menu collaboration with McDonald’s since the company kicked off its Famous Orders program in 2020.

5. Pepsi urges consumers to ‘break up’ with Coke Zero Sugar in latest challenger move
