Twitter is launching a version of its site as a Tor onion service, optimizing it for the privacy-protecting and censorship-evading network. Onion services are sometimes dubbed hidden services or “dark web” services, although the latter often refers to explicitly criminal sites like the Silk Road drug market. Tor encrypts web traffic and routes it through a series of servers to hide identifying information about users. It’s a popular way to access sites that are subject to internet censorship, and that’s made it particularly relevant since Russia’s February invasion of Ukraine.

Instagram announced a new feature which will allow creators to tag their specific contributions to a project. Now, when a creator is tagged, the post’s author can designate whether they are a “stylist,” “photographer” or “model,” for example.

The new feature gives us an opportunity to be seen easier..

The new feature comes as several social media companies have made additional concessions to creators, who drive engagement to their respective platforms. Instagram also recently launched overlay ads for Reels and began testing out paid creator subscriptions, while Twitch is also trying to get creators paid on a more consistent basis. And sure, YouTube isn’t desperate, but it’s offering as many opportunities to monetize content as it possibly can to keep in viral stars’ good graces. Instagram’s new tag ostensibly solves a growing problem that occurs when several content creators contribute to a single post.

If you want to better your chances at being seen on TikTok, here are some really good tips and tricks:

1- Quality matters – don’t let grainy videos prevent your message from getting through. The overwhelming majority of top-performing TikToks, 83.2% to be specific, have a video resolution of 720p or higher. These videos see an average 5.4% lift in impressions.

2- Including sound – a music track, voiceover, or just you talking to the camera – in your TikToks is more than a best practice; t’s a must-have for this sound-on environment.Adding audio of any kind causes a significant lift in impressions compared to videos without audio, and more than 93% of top-performing videos use audio!

3- Ultimately, the length of your TikToks should make sense for the message you’re trying to get across, but overall we see that shorter videos perform better. 1 in 4 top-performing videos have a duration between 21 and 34 seconds and see, on average, a 1.6% lift in impressions.
