176: Long-form video, Twitter's meltdown, marketing skill sets

Documentaries and brand films are just two examples of long-form videos that many companies are producing. We talk about why organizations are creating them, how you can know if they're right for you and how you can create them. Also this month, Twitter melts down again. Should you or your company pay to get a blue check next to your username? Plus, we call BS on a couple commonly held assumptions in social media and marketing. Also, an aquarium’s successful made-up social media theme week, and more!
