Almost 40% of all photos shared on Twitter come from iPhones

Updating_ TweetDeck

Goodness gracious I’m trying very heard not to use any well-placed or ill conceived invective here. It’s hard. It is gawl-darned hard, let me tell you. Tweetedeck was always one of those Twitter tools that took its cue from Twitters enormous success and equally enormous fail-whale like failures. When Twitter bought Tweetdeck it seemed like […]
