You’re invited to “The Social Hour”! Social Media Club San Diego is launching The Social Hour every third Wednesday of the month at Co-Merge at 6pm. It’s the perfect opportunity to stay on top of trends and changes in the social media landscape in under 60 minutes.
This month Social Media Club San Diego will be hosting, “The Social Hour – The Twitter Rules,” an informal discussion to talk about Twitter’s new policies.
Haven’t heard about Twitter’s new policy changes? No surprise, not that many folks are aware of the changes and how these policies may affect their content in order to adhere to Twitter’s guidelines. Below are details of the event.
The Twitter Rules
When: July 18, 2012 6pm
Moderator: Kari Embree
Twitter Trademark and Content Display Policy: Are You Already in Violation?
Twitter recently—and somewhat quietly—updated their brand usage guidelines to be much stricter in order to protect their trademark and content, and these guidelines could affect your business.
For instance, did you know that you:
- Should always use one of the approved Twitter logos and/or buttons?
- Should capitalize the ‘T’ in Twitter and Tweet?
- Should not use Twitter in the name of your website, application, or product?
- Should not use the Twitter bird on your book/publication cover or title?
Before you dismiss these and the rest of the updated brand usage guidelines too quickly, note this warning from Twitter’s page at https://twitter.com/logo: “This policy is designed to help you use our brand and assets, including our logo, content and trademarks without having to worry about negotiating a separate agreement with us or talking to our lawyers.”
