Twitter Shows Off Real Love Notes

The social media platform is spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with a ‘Dating Twitter Advice Bureau’ in Covent Garden this week. The 3-day installation has a ‘Peep Show’ for X-rated tweets, the ‘Wheel of Misfortune’, ‘Ghosting Graveyard’ and ‘Gallery of Awkward Silence’… Twitter hasn’t yet told us what these will entail but we’re intrigued to see what they’ve whipped up for us.

The pop-up has been supported by a Tweet take-over of tube platforms with some pretty risqué tweets, which are definitely something to brighten up your morning commute.

Google have published Valentine’s Day trends based on their Trends Data from the last few weeks. They have identified the most searched RomComs, as well as the most popular love songs (Love Story – Taylor Swift) and most searched gifts ideas (Flowers, so much originality). It’s an interesting insight as to how people will be spending their Valentine’s Day, as well as what items we can expect to be receive from our other halves (or whoever!) today. This is another great show of Google’s transparency with data, how they collect and repurpose it.

Ofcom’s Social Media Take Over

Government approved regulatory authority Ofcom are to be given a higher authority when it comes to regulating all forms of harmful content posted on social media. This comes as a massive change from the current norm of social media platforms being largely self-regulating. The change was spurred after the death of Molly Russell, who committed suicide after viewing what was described as “depressing and suicidal” content on Instagram. The government felt it was time to take action and have begun taking steps to minimise the risks of social media use. Debates over the ‘freedom’ of posting on social media have sprouted in response to this news, with one corner advocating for complete free reign over the content that people can post and the other in agreement that somebody should oversee and regulate social media’s content. Regardless, just how stringent Ofcom intend to be remains to be seen and we’re sure even they are going to approach this carefully so as not to limit freedom of speech on social media.
