So many words have been written about Xiaomi copying Apple.
But there’s one way Apple should be copying Xiaomi.
I think it will be called the iLoop.
Apple’s address is 1 Infinite Loop.
To call it an “iWatch” is stupid. They never called their music player an “iJukebox” or “iMusic” or “iPlayer.” Calling it an “iPod” left it wide open to do more than play music — as it eventually did; offering, for example, video and photos. And “pod” was a brilliant choice, since the iPod was white — and most people connected it to the white pods of the movie 2001.
For certain people, when you drop a tweet’s URL at the end of a tweet, it boxes it and shows it below, as seen above.
This feature hasn’t rolled out globally yet.
I haven’t explored all of its possible features, either. But Twitter is beginning to resemble Weibo with this.
I love the way Weibo does it:
Bottom shows demarcation of “tweet” (red) and “retweet” (green).
What I hope Twitter won’t mimic are all those damn animated emoji and other dancing symbols.
In April, the brand would be continuing its “Art of Cheese” campaign, which provides its 100 Twitter followers and 220 Facebook fans with tips on how to best enjoy its products.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
