It should be about relationships but they tend to focus on leads.If something doesn't generate enough attention or revenue right away then the situation is abandoned. I've seen it happen over and over again with many content creators across multiple social media networks.It takes time and effort to build anything worth having.

Twitter is Right to Remove Share Counts

Twitter announced they'll be removing Share Counts from their buttons as part of a new redesign, and also discontinuing support for the JSON endpoints that made it easy for developers to query the API for the number of times a URL was Tweeted.  For all intents and purposes, they are retiring Share counts almost entirely.

This will be a nightmare for many social share button and plugin developers, not to mention publishers, websites, and designers, but I think Twitter is doing the right thing.

In the following article, I explain why I think this is a good thing ultimately, for both Twitter and its users.

What I may do is actually set up a rail in my office, splitting in half, white on one side black on the other - that way I don't have to set up that crazy big backdrop stand every time.
