Apple's Integration of Twitter Triples the Signups from iOS

No comments:



Apple's integration of Twitter has led to triple the daily Twitter signups via iOS, says CEO Dick Costolo.

"The iOS integration is going to be absolutely huge for us, even better than we thought it was," Costolo said. "I didn't realize how frictionless this would be," he added. "It's so native."

Speaking at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Costolo said the company partnered with Apple because they share a similar product mentality of enhancing products by editing them down, and "offering simplicity in a world of complexity."

Costolo also revealed that users are sending 250 million tweets per day.

Step Two
Select a contact from your address book.



Step Three
Press the Edit button at the top right of your screen.



Step Four
Scroll down and select Add Field from the list of buttons.




Step Five
Choose Phonetic First Name or Phonetic Last Name from the list of possible fields.



Step Six
Enter the phonetic pronunciation of the name that Siri isn't recognizing then press the Done button at the top right of your screen.






NICKNAME
You can also get Siri to recognize and refer to a contact or yourself using an entirely different name by adding a Nickname field to the contact entry.
