In  a bid to help publishers perform better and generate more revenue on the platform, micro-blogging site Twitter has announced its first publisher insights tool called “Timing is Everything”.

“‘Timing is Everything’ displays historical data showing when audiences are on Twitter watching and engaging with a video highlighting the best times to tweet video content and maximise engagement, conversation, and viewership,” Ellen Fitzgerald, Product Manager, Twitter, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

The feature, instead of only showing when their organic followers were watching their video-posts, would rather show at which time period of the day are people just generally watching any video on Twitter — maximum engagement time via video content on the platform.

“We encourage publishers to continue to post throughout the day in order to maximize reach; however, consider including posting during the most engaging times of the day and week as part of that strategy,” Fitzgerald added.

The tool comes as part of the “Analytics” drop-down menu in the “Media Studio” option.

A Twitter post by an Indian journalist on Monday on the sale of cow-dung cakes in a US store for Rs 215 elicited witty responses from users.

“My cousin sent me this. Available at a grocery store in Edison, New Jersey. $2.99 only. My question: Are these imported from desi cows or are they from Yankee cows?” Samar Halarnkar tweeted on his handle @samar11.

The accompanying picture showed a packet of 10 cow-dung cakes, with the label duly informing prospective customers that the product was meant only for “religious purposes” and was “not eatable” (sic).

The post got quite a few humorous reactions. One user wrote: “Better to market them as ‘Cow Dung Cookies’ in the US.”

“It does not guarantee the ‘cakes’ are made from Cow-Dung from cows native to India,” said another user.

One tweet said: “Product of India”.

Another asked: “Is that from buffalo??? Raw material Input/output High!!!”

One raised suspicion on the quality of the product in a witty way: “Morality question is kya inka character dheela hai #sorrynotsorry.”

“If someone wants to eat them, they should be allowed to do so,” read a tweet.

One user reminded that “Religious or not, this is good fuel for conventional Punjabi cooking.”

In a cheeky play on words, one user said: “Isko dekh kar maine DUNG reh gaya.”

  1. Just wanted to call out Paul for his fantastic service through my home buying process – from identifying the best rate through to obtaining approval and settlement. This was my first home purchase and I think it’s fair to say that it would have been significantly more challenging without his help. Paul was on top of everything that needed to be done – going the extra bit in dealing with the bank and conveyance to ensure that the whole process was concluded smoothly. The best part was that Paul was always there to answer any questions and provide support, making life much simpler. Highly recommended! ww w.westernloanfinance .c om
