Twitter Rolls Out Easy SMS Following, No Account Needed

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Everyone’s favorite micro-blogging service Twitter just announced a fascinating new way for mobile users (even those without a Twitter account) to quickly and easily start following the short message bursts of the Twitterverse. With the new “Fast Follow” feature (say that three times fast), anyone can text “Follow @rww” (or any other username) to Twitter at 40404 and they will instantly start receiving SMS alerts for that user’s tweets. What is more impressive, however, it that those without an account of their own can still receive alerts and can even sign up right from their phone via SMS. While this is a simple feature add for Twitter, it is a brilliant move that will get more people trying the service. The use of short code text messaging is very popular these days. Millions of people vote for the next American Idol star via text message, and just as many have donated money to the Red Cross during times of need right from their phones. Part of the reason for this popularity is the ease by which it is done, as well as the ubiquitous nature of text messaging. Even the most basic mobile devices can send text messages, and texting is huge among younger generations who use it as a 24/7 lifeline to their friends. Cell phone use is especially high among less affluent demographics of society who may not be able to afford a broadband internet connection, but can certainly swing a cheap basic cell phone.Now with Fast Follow, anyone can start following tweets as easy as they vote on American Idol or donate to the Red Cross. Now business, organizations and even people can say, “Follow me on Twitter by texting ‘Follow @chcameron’ to 40404,” and people will know what that means and how to do it. There is much more familiarity with SMS short codes than there is with signing up for Twitter and following people that way.What’s more – letting non-users receive alerts is a great way to let people dip their toes in before jumping head first into the vast ocean that is Twitter. It is curious, however, to consider how being able to follow a user without an account will affect a user’s follow count. Will a new category emerge that will tell us how many non-users are following? Either way, it would not be surprising to see this decision pay off very well for Twitter in terms of adding users to the service – perhaps even from new demographics.

Anil Kumble involved conflict of interest row

first_imgFormer India skipper Anil Kumble has found himself at the centre of a raging controversy with regards to allegations of conflict of interest.The former India skipper is the head of the National Cricket Academy as well as the president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association while his firm, Tenvic, manages several players including S Aravind, who was recently included for the first two ODIs of the upcoming series against England.However, Kumble defended his stand stating, “I do not see any conflict of interest here.””I am very clear in my mind about this. The important thing is to focus on what you are trying to achieve, and I am trying to do that,” Outlook quoted the former India leg-spinner.Kumble’s dual role has been criticised by several former players leading to questions over the integrity of a cricketer who was always a role model for honesty and fair play.”I focus on what has to be done, not on what people might be thinking. The positions with the KSCA and NCA are honorary jobs, and I have to look after myself. At this stage of my career, I have to do that. Otherwise, you would have to become like Gandhi and give up everything,” Kumble added.This is not the first time questions over conflict of interest have arisen in the Indian cricket scenario.Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri too came under it’s gambit when it was known that the two were employees of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and were even actively involved in commentating. It was pointed out that the two were busy towing the BCCI line while commentating during the India tour of England last month.advertisementAlso BCCI president, N Srinivisan too was involved in a similar situation when former board president AC Muthiah had filed a case against him in the Supreme Court questioning his position as an official (board secretary) when he is also the owner of Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super Kings.However, the Apex Count had turned down Muthiah’s plea clearing the decks for his appointment as the BCCI president.last_img read more


Drewry Idle Containership Fleet Shrinks

first_imgzoom Having been one of the few fast-growing segments in the containership industry until recently, the idle containership fleet has since gone on a crash diet, according to shipping consultancy Drewry.The idle fleet has shrunk from 1.7 million TEU in November 2016 to under 500,000 TEU as of June 2017. This is welcome news for carriers as it means that the industry is getting healthier, with fewer unwanted assets draining costs.The idle fleet will likely plateau for the rest of the year as some short-term fixtures are parked up once again, mitigated by some scrapping, meaning that the industry is close to recovery, but is not quite there with still too many assets that are simply unviable.There are a number of reasons for the sudden slimming down. Firstly, a large proportion of former Hanjin Shipping units that were parked up almost overnight in the aftermath of its untidy bankruptcy have since either been scrapped or picked up by other owners and operators. By early June 2017 only 13 of the original Hanjin idled ships had not been re-deployed, leaving some 100,000 TEU idled.Another factor that helped to shape a leaner idle fleet was the number of formerly inactive ships that were scrapped. From early December 2016 to the mid-March Drewry counted some 23 ships aggregating 76,000 TEU that were scrapped out of idled positions.From March to the end of June some 133 idle ships were reactivated with the majority of 74 being deployed in the core East-West trades, primarily the Transpacific. Another 30 vessels moved into the secondary East-West trades, with many placed on the Asia to India and Middle-East trades. Only 18 ships have moved into the North-South trades, but MSC has been active in taking the largest ships possible – including a couple of 9,400 TEU ships that have been put into the ECSA routes.“While the idle fleet is a good barometer of the overall health of the industry it is important to remember that last year’s peak and the recent toning down were skewed by one-off events,” Drewry said, adding that it was never as bad as it looked last year, “but the recovery has been aided by the temporary demand for filler ships that won’t last.”The idle fleet is expected to remain at about 2-3% of the total containership fleet throughout the summer, before rising slightly during the slack season that comes into play in the final months of the year, Drewry informs.last_img read more
