“Modern Social Media in 33 Seconds”
Growth should be a marathon, not a sprint
You probably haven’t seen it, but there was an old building that was demolished in NYC today, the first in over a decade.
It was imploded by the New York Fire Department and was recorded on Vine!
Tumblr: #this fucking donut #can we talk about this fucking donut for a minute #can we #because on this donut #the sprinkles just comfortably melt into the icing #you can tell that they are so perfectly in tune with each other #and they’ve come so far from when the sprinkles just sort of sat on top #barely touching for fear of rejection #just ugh I can’t #otp: comfortably melting
4chan: here’s a picture of someone putting their dick in a donut.
reddit: that donut needs to go back into the kitchen and make me a sandwich.
academia.edu: Here is a pdf of the seminar paper I wrote about the erotics/poetics/semiotics/science of donut eating.
deviantArt:I did not steal this donut. I traced it so now it’s mine.
It got better
Fanfic.net: The donut is the setting for a high school AU, were two sprinkles meet and realise they have more in common than they ever thought possible, however, the mean chocolate sauce has caught wind of their secret relationship. Will they be able to make it together before it’s too late? M for a lemon flavoured donut.
This has officially become one of my favorite posts.
I JUST REBLOGGED BUT FANFIC MADE IT PERFECT
Always reblog because perfection.
M FOR A LEMON FLAVOURED DONUT
Back in my days at Red Bull, my boss had asked me to make one :D ==> That’s when you realize how huge the company is ! So much impact and content!
To give a bit of context, I work for an agency, whose client got caught in a big PR story: some people on The Stream got confused between this company and a movement of people striking controversial arguments. The client had nothing to do with the controversy, and I politely and democratically explained this to those who misunderstood. This was this morning.
Following my intervention, the company went on to become a national trending topic on The Stream, while the controversial movement trended globally.
Following this, we have seem some incredible responses online, of people defending the client, by sending messages of support, defending us, and acknowledging our good work. Our responses were not part of any strategy or bad publicity we were trying to fuel. Our responses were to monitor, not ‘feed the trolls’ and explain the distinction between the two entities for anyone who misinterpreted the situation.
So yeah, while we didn’t understand the scale of things from the get-go, I’m glad transparency and clear messages helped us spread the word that we were not involved. In the end, the client, the agency, and the people all got very satisfied and supportive. And I feel damn proud and happy for the team I work with, and for myself!
I think it’s important to find the line between bragging and celebrating, and in this case, it’s a small victory that we all can feel good about!
[EDIT:] One of my posts got retweeted nearly 3500 times!

Happy First Decade of Scrobbling to the lovely folks at Last.fm!
In internet history, this is absolutely massive!
I surprised some people when I said I was taking November off Twitter.
I’ve been using Twitter since July 2006 (user #1568!) with almost completely unbroken usage since late 2007, so that reaction is understandable—most especially from those in my life who consider me addicted to my iPhone.
