Twitter and Bloomberg Twitter's partnership with Bloomberg to offer 24 hour video news is a positive move. It makes sense for our news feed to be running curated video news alongside the community-generated news. Twitter may not be the first app that Martin, Gini or Joe opens in the morning.

And now these services have been integrated into a single Sysomos Platform offering several functional stacks: search, listen, discover, publish, engage and analyse. All in one user friendly interface that anyone familiar with Tweetdeck or Hootsuite will find intuitive. It’s a whole new Sysomos. Let's just hope that it isn't priced out of the budget range of small and mid-size agencies. Sysomos Light? Yik has Yakked When were you last on Yik Yak. Our bet is not recently.
