In December 2017, Instagram became more content oriented than ever by introducing the ability to follow hashtags on the social media platform. It became more accessible to users across the globe by allowing them to stay connected with their interests, passions, hobbies by simply following a hashtag of their choice. Doing that would expose them to different posts bearing that hashtag.
As the old saying goes, time is of the essence. It is and has been true at all times, but it is especially relevant in today’s world when everything is fast-paced and everyone has too much on their plate. When faced with such difficulties in the social world, companies turn to automation and social media management tools that relieve them off at least some of their burden.
At its heart, Twitter is a platform that allows people to have conversations. It gives them a way to be updated about the accounts they are interested in real-time. When brands engage in spam, they decrease the overall productivity of the platform. A few years ago Facebook took the initiative to deal with the menace of clickbait posts. In a similar spirit, Twitter has announced its decision to ban spam on the social media platform.
