Twitter has recently revealed several welcome updates. Firstly, they have increased the number of images you can post per tweet from one to four.

Facebook have declared that in the coming months they will be making a few changes to the design of their ads in the right-hand column. These changes will include increasing the size of the ads and using the same proportions as the desktop News Feeds ads. This means advertisers will only need to select one image for both the News Feed and the right-hand column placements. Facebook will also be reducing the number of ads in the right-hand column.
