Twitter continuing to experiment

Twitter recently revealed a couple of experiments to the platform that are viewed by some as minor, but what I view as pretty cool alterations.

First, Burberry pushed out a twitter card that doubled as a calendar invite to one of its fashion events. It’ll be interesting to see what other brands (product-based) will do with this feature. Check it out here.

Secondly, there is a pretty cool change to how people can comment on retweets – twitter announced that people who wanted to do a quotable RT could do so, but the original tweet would be in image form, allowing the user to use more characters towards commenting on the tweet. Before, people were running into the issue of having to RT the original, while also commenting, and staying within the 140 character count. Check out the Mashable review here.
