Twitter Releases New Suite Of Anti-Harassment Tools, Promises Faster Response Times For Dealing With Abuse
Twitter this morning has released a new set of anti-harassment tools that make it easier for users to flag abuse on the network, as well as describe more specifically why they’re blocking or reporting a Twitter account.
Twitter had made it fairly simple to report spam, but the new tools allow users to report a variety of troubles, including impersonations, harassment, and even self-harm or suicide. In addition, users can report the harassment on behalf of other users, even if they’re not the target themselves, which is a big change.
This is a time for contemplation about our blessings and what we have. And to think about the future and what so many people world-wide DON'T have, like clean water, or sanitation, or medicines, or personal safety. That's why I registered and founded ChangeTheWorld.com in 1996 to be a 501(c)3 non-profit, now awaiting approval by the IRS. Unfortunately, the timing was awful and when we started production on the original concept, the DotCom meltdown happened and we were not able to raise the necessary funds.
Skipping forward a few years, I partnered with Vince Gerardis*, who had a greater vision and ambition for the site than I did, and we are now ready to build out a truly unique opportunity for people around the globe to help each other. Think of it as a kind eBay meets crowd sourcing for non-profits, charities and humanitarian missions to meet their goals to improve the world.
The current ChangeTheWorld.com website is just the very beginning of what we believe will be a vibrant, robust and unique way to involve people positively in the ways that are most important to them, whether it is environmental protection, human rights, education, freedom from persecution or other important missions.

Great SEO can make a company, bad SEO can kill a company. For consumers, links are a way to learn more information about a subject, but to search engines they can serve as an indication of content that’s popular. If multiple pages link to the same article or news item, search algorithms assume it must be of value and rank it higher. External links are a major factor in how Google determines search results, according to separate reports from Moz and Searchmetrics.
However, because this process can be manipulated, it’s important that those links be legitimate to avoid being seen as spammy by Google’s algorithms. While organic links are more important than ever, the legitimacy of those links is also more important than ever. With Google placing such a strong emphasis on links, here are a few things you can do to improve your links for SEO purposes.
It’s not officially winter yet, but tell that to Buffalo and the rest of Western New York State which got literally blasted with #Snovember.
