Seven years ago, Twitter was just a small, ragtag collection of hackers fighting over the basic premise of the company and struggling to keep the site from crashing every other day. Twitter has come a long way since then.

The company is on track to bring in more than half a billion dollars in revenue this year. It has more than 230 million monthly active users worldwide and some 2,300 employees in offices in San Francisco, New York, London, Dublin and Sao Paulo. It navigated a smooth IPO in November (unlike another social network that shall remain nameless) and is now valued at around $35 billion. Read more…

Facebook and Twitter continue their battle over TV viewers’ attention. On the same day that Nielsen unveiled its first Twitter TV Ratings report, Facebook announced that the company has partnered with a number of international television networks to provide much of the same information.

Facebook will now offer user engagement data surrounding shows to 10 major TV networks in eight different countries, including France, the UK and India, reports the Wall Street Journal. The social network has monitored interactions — Likes, comments and posts — surrounding popular TV and entertainment topics in the past (like the Oscars and the Super Bowl), and will now share that data directly with TV networks so they can see which shows create the most buzz online.

Breaking Bad reached its climactic end on Sunday, as fans spilled their emotions about the series finale in droves on Facebook and Twitter. Not seeing a tweet or Facebook status update about AMC’s Emmy-winning drama was practically impossible

Nielsen reported that 10.3 million viewers tuned in to Sunday’s “Felina” episode — 3.7 million more than the previous week’s “Granite State” episode. That’s Breaking Bad‘s highest viewership in series history, but in comparison, it fell short of besting fellow AMC show The Walking Dead, which saw 12.4 million viewers for its season 3 finale in March

LOS ANGELES — What’s a modern awards show without a few selfies or photobombs? To ensure viewers of Sunday’s Primetime Emmys get a glamorous dose of filtered celebrity selfies, Instagram is setting up “InstaStop” iPad booths on the red carpet and backstage.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had nearly 1 million Facebook Likes ahead of its Sept. 24 premiere on ABC. However, less than 20,000 people were talking about the show on the social network at the time.
