Double Trouble? Twitter Expands Character Limit to 280

Written by Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing Specialist

A big change hit the Twitterverse this week when most users saw their character limit expand from 140 to 280. This concept was introduced in September, when a select group of users were allowed to start tweeting with 280 characters. Now, everyone is eligible, unless they are using the site in Japanese, Korean or Chinese. This is the first time Twitter has changed their character limit since launching in 2006.

What's in it for Me? Top 5 Reasons to Volunteer

Written by Katie Duval, Director of Member Services

Last Thursday, NewTV hosted its fifth annual House of Haunts and it was a smashing success, largely due to our volunteer support. Over the span of three days, fifteen volunteer members and interns moved furniture, assembled props, carved pumpkins, acted in our scavenger hunt, greeted patrons and much more. I am constantly impressed by our members’ willingness to step forward when we need them and help out for a cause that they love.

ITVFest 2017

Written by Angela Harrer, Co-Director of Original Programming

Last week I attended the ITVFest for the second year in a row. This event is one of the few festivals that celebrates indie episodic programming, and is set in an atmosphere that is both friendly and scenic. As an indie TV producer, it's encouraging to see more executives and creators who have heard great things about this festival fly across the country to learn from one another and foster new collaborative relationships with each other. Phillip Gilpin Jr. has headed this effort for several years now, and he and his team have created an event that is truly unique.

Don't Remove the Headphone Jack

Written by Eugene Foygelman, Production Coordinator

When I search for a new cell phone, there are a few features that are very important to me. I care about build quality, the type of operating system, expandable storage, screen size, types of buttons, and most importantly, a head phone jack. This simple universal feature is still heavily in use in the non-cell phone world, and I don’t see it going away any time soon. However, phone manufacturers are starting to leave this “outdated” feature behind.
