Twitter advertising isn’t new, but advertising on users’ profiles is a first. The social network is testing out promoted tweets on some profile pages, and if those ads are there at all, you’ll find them a few tweets down in a section specially marked, “Suggested by Twitter,” so there’s little chance of mistaking them for anything else.

Until last month, a meerkat was just a small mammal associated with insurance and a periscope was something one would expect to find on a submarine. But now “Periscoping” and “Meerkating” are the latest social media trends.



Finally, this weekend is Easter, and we all have a well deserved 4 day weekend, we hope you have a lovely Easter!

Easter is known as a time to indulge in chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and Mini-Egg encrusted cakes – and for brands to capitalise on the holiday season with their best Easter-themed campaigns. From bouncing chicks and treasure hunts to taking a selfie with an Easter bunny, here are the favourite Easter-related messages and campaigns.
