“.CO Provides Much More Value Than Just a Domain Name,” – Lori Anne Wardi, .CO Internet

I remember being very apathetical when the new generic top level domain (gTLD) application system opened on January 12, 2012. With the exception of .CO, new gTLD launches of the past like Biz, Info, Travel, Mobi, etc. had failed to marginalize .COM’s dominant position and there was no reason to think otherwise for the forthcoming ones.

These softwares are helping clients in many ways such as scheduling the tweets, track conversations, etc. Until now, the information was provided to users about how each tweet was posted by writing below the tweet via HootSuite but  from now this advertising feature will be hidden  by Twitter. This implementation will make tweets look homogeneous and privacy is also protected.
