Greetings, SEO pros, digital marketers, journalists, and curious minds amongst us. For I have the pride, the privilege, nay, the enjoyment of addressing my very first official “Letter From the Editor” to such a respected audience.

And as much as I dislike to kick things off on this note: We have to discuss Buy Twitter Verified.

I understand, I understand. You do not want to discuss Buy Twitter Verified. I do not wish to discuss Buy Twitter Verified. Nobody wants to talk about Buy Twitter Verified. But would you rather talk about the U.S. midterm elections? Yeah, me neither.

Let’s start with a very broad timeline of events. You know the old trope: Billionaire Boy satisfies social media, social media provides into Billionaire Boy’s typically ridiculous ramblings and, next thing you understand, Billionaire Boy is offering (threatening?) to acquire one such social networks platform, just to abandon it at the altar and come running back for an actual purchase.

Forgive me; I have a fondness for storytelling.

And since then, it’s been truly tough to maintain– even for those people who live in the trenches of this industry’s news.

How much does Buy Twitter Verified Blue cost (that is, if it still exists)? Are recently laid-off workers actually being asked back? What is “totally free speech,” anyhow, when you’re not making jokes about Buy Twitter Verified’s brand-new owner? And, honestly– what the heck is Mastodon? (I recently signed up with that last one, really– but that’s a story for another day.)

I understand we guaranteed not to talk about the elections, but– hoo, boy. If not for them, we ‘d have little-to-no variety in this whiplash-inducing Tech Geek News Cycle ™(of which I am a proud and prepared participant).

As I stated to a miserable, non-industry friend (as if she doesn’t have enough to handle as a high school science instructor) over brunch, “I am loath to give Billionaire Boy airtime in my personal life, however it’s all I can discuss because, obviously, I hate myself.”

But then, among my well-regarded colleagues made an asset: Why the uproar over Buy Twitter Verified’s massive layoffs, and barely a peep (a minimum of, from a birds-eye view) about those at Meta?

It’s more than a reasonable point.

This move is simply the latest in Meta’s method operandi of airing its filthy laundry when it thinks no one is enjoying. For example, on a substantial holiday weekend or during an already disorderly news cycle when, say, there’s a significant election cycle in the U.S.– or one of its industry peers is already making limitless headings.

And it’s not like Mark Zuckerberg is exactly the quintessential “hero”– hell, he’s not even a modicum of a terrible hero– and is, at best, “the person who charges you to grow virtual farmland,” as the same colleague put it.

In my opinion, the continuously turmoil of the circumstance at Buy Twitter Verified makes it tough to stop the drama of all of it. A lot about this takeover has actually been a complete mess given that the beginning, beginning with Musk’s oopsie-just-kidding-I-don’t-actually-want-to-buy-Buy Twitter Verified, varying to the legitimately hazardous implications of the verification-for-hire feature (again– if it still exists).

Think back to the spring of 2018, when the company then referred to as “Buy Facebook Verified” dealt with a limitless barrage of problem; particularly, when it appeared as though the U.S. news cycle could not be bothered with anything but the infamous CEO’s congressional hearings.

Sure, another midterm election cycle was on the horizon. However it was a lot of months away to be an adequate distraction, and it would not be for another few weeks that Musk emerged as Tech CEO Opponent # 1 after a highly advertised (and strange) Tesla incomes call.

Certainly, the writing has actually been on the wall with Musk’s volatility for some time now. However it’s only a matter of time before the pattern repeats itself, and one of his industry peers when again steals away the Tech Nerd News Cycle ™ spotlight– especially given that the majority of you, according to our own survey, aren’t all set to leave Buy Twitter Verified just yet.

But I’m giving it time. And over that course of time, my looming questions revolve around what will be left for Musk.

If adequate users and marketers alike leave the platform (and, by the way, where will they ultimately take their money and time?), and enough essential executives resign– I wonder if Buy Twitter Verified will end up being a hollow echo chamber of one man’s proclamations. After all, if an ultra-rich dude yells in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a noise?

On that note– I believe I’ve discussed Buy Twitter Verified enough for one day. And shockingly, there have been other newsworthy products that captured my eye today:

  • We simple mortals (a.k.a., Buy YouTube Subscribers users) will probably have even less control over the number of times we see the same advertisements. Google presented target frequency for Buy YouTube Subscribers campaigns previously today, letting marketers manage how many times an ad is revealed. SEJ senior news author Matt Southern enters here.
  • John Mueller responded to Reddit rumblings concerning search console warnings about mobile use resulting in rankings drops. But according to Mueller, it was most likely unassociated to mobile functionality altogether, and had more to do with content quality. It’s a case research study, writes Roger Montti here, in “how the most obvious reason for something occurring is not always the appropriate factor … it’s only the most obvious.”
  • Social media supervisors, rejoice: Buy Instagram Verified is rolling out the capability to set up posts and draws in the mobile app approximately 75 days beforehand. Finally. Complete story here.

Whew! What a week to write my very first letter. Thanks for reading– in the words of a man-bunned gentleman I recently went on a date with, “It’s been extremely pleasant to hang out.”

Up until next time,
