Twitter Finally Lets You Share Team Accounts Without Sharing Passwords

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

If you’ve ever tried to share a Twitter account with your team, you probably already know it sucks.

You can share the password, but then you get that one guy who leaves the password on a post-it on his laptop lid and the account gets hacked. Or someone leaves, and now 15 people all need to learn the new password.

You can use a third-party solution, but then you’re trusting yet another third party to not go out of business, not get acquired and shut down, not go down during business hours, and, most notably, not be awful for its own reasons.

In the 10 years since Twitter’s launch, it’s never gotten around to building its own fix — until now.

Like a number of Twitter’s power-user-focused features, the new Team tool is built into TweetDeck as opposed to the more standard Twitter client.

Here’s how to start using it:

Becoming a Better Listener

Originally posted on Social Media, etc.:

I’m a problem-solver. That’s one of the reasons I became a social strategist. I’m always on the look out for better solutions and ways to transform theory into practice. The downside to this is that I tend to not be the best listener. If you’re telling me anything that involves a problem my mind immediately focuses on that and begins to work on pulling together a variety of potential solutions. So even though I may nod and give some superficial “hmmmms…” and “then what?s” a decent part of my mind is elsewhere. While some may call that a strength- and to be sure it has often come in handy when a quick resolution is needed- it is also a potential weakness.

Social strategists must be strategic listeners as well as effective problem solvers. This can be difficult in our fast-paced world. The pressure comes externally as well as internally to…

Some time ago I wrote a post about why I don’t plant succulents in my own garden. Ever since then, I have felt the presence of an invisible host waiting to pounce and shout, “Aha! Now you admit the error of your ways!”

Approaching the Huntinton Library's Desert Garden. Approaching the Huntinton Library’s Desert Garden.

We saw the Desert Garden at the Huntington Library on the Monday before Christmas. This garden is fun, exciting, fascinating, and visually powerful. But did it make me change my mind? Read on to find out.

Once the estate of a California plutocrat, the Huntington Library is now a privately run institution featuring extensive gardens, art displays, and libraries, all open to the public. The Desert Garden, covering 12 acres, was the inspiration of William Hertrich, the estate’s chief gardener in the earlier part of the 20th Century.

Ello Users Experience Further Downtime After DDoS Attack

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

The suddenly hip social networking siteEllo experienced its first major outage today, suffering a Distributed Denial of Service attack that brought it down for approximately 45 minutes. The company says that it was able to fix the issue by blocking the IP addresses responsible for the attack.

However, it seems that the site is still going through some instability, as users are still occasionally taking to Twitter to say that it has gone down or that posts refuse to upload. Anecdotally, I occasionally get the above image on attempting to load the site. We’ll update this post if Ello confirms whether these are aftershocks from the attack or simply growing pains from the site’s rapid user acquisition in recent days.
