Let’s dive in: 👇
1. Twitter offer discounts on ad packages
It’s no secret that Twitter’s rebrand to "X" could have a negative impact on the public’s perception of the platform’s stability. The rebrand also carries the weight of lost brand recognition, which could influence a marketer’s spending decisions.
In response, Twitter/X is trying to win back ad partners and emphasize the benefits of their ads. The newly amplified ad campaigns within the app are meant to increase reach and enhance the value of their ad offerings.
Ad partners can take advantage of up to a 50% discount to maintain their alignment with the app. Twitter/X has been reported exploring new opportunities with larger brands.
Despite these efforts, Twitter's ad business is still facing challenges, with total ad revenue down 50% year-over-year. The debt is affecting the business, with Musk having loaded $13B in bank loans, leading to significant interest payments each year.
2. Here's how the biggest Shopify Plus brands are protecting their stores this holiday season. *
90% of store issues (dead links, broken add-to-cart buttons, etc.) are human errors, and the average store makes thousands of theme updates every month.
Uptime makes it easy to monitor, detect, and resolve issues on your Shopify store through automated UI testing, real-time Shopify platform & app outage alerts, and more.
