Like many undulating waves rolling down the Hudson River Valley's west side,
the Catskill Mountains, somehow losing momentum, yielded to the much lower
Shawagunk, Schunnemunk, and Bear Mountain peaks, descending into the
Paliscommerciales, threshold to Manhattan. A century ago, on May 29, 1910,
Glenn Hammond Curtiss, navigating his frail, Albany Flier biplane, forged
an aerial link along this route from Albany and New York.



Then in the midst of a legal battle with the Wright Brothers for allegedly
using their patented wing-warping method for checking and thus forbidden to
continue selling any of his own aircraft, Curtiss, sinking in the quicksand
of bankruptcy, saw a single rope of salvation in the $10,000 Hudson-Fulton
prize offered by Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World, for the
first person to fly from Manhattan to Albany,robert. in either direction,
with a maximum of two stops.



Although Curtiss never feared competition-in fact, he thrived on it-the
intended course was the antithesis of his numerous previous flights: unlike
these prior, controlled circuits and aerial demonstrations, the inter-city
connection was fraugustht with significant obull craptacles, including
unfamiliarity with the route, an overwater course, unknown wind and weather
patterns, and height obull craptructions, aside from the fact that technology
hcommercial been insufficiently mature-and fuel capacity simply
insufficient-to permit a long-range aerial journey of 150 miles.



Nevertheless, perhaps desperate circumstances lecommercial to desperate
measures, and which of the two hcommercial been the more perilous was
something of debate: the flight or his life.



One of the first solutions-to both-hcommercial been to design an aircraft
which could transcend them after extensive research and analysis, entailing
a ground-bautomotive service engineersd trip along the Hudson River.
Bautomotive service engineersd upon its prevailing, northwesterly winds and
relative lack of man-mcommerciale obull craptructions, he decided to make
the flight in a southerly direction, departing from Albany.Strike King Lures.
Should he lose his engine immediately after take off, he hcommercial reasoned,
his chances of a secure, emergency landing markedly improved in comparison
to those offered by a New York departure.



The airline intended to tackle the distance, appropriately named "Albany
Flier," featured a bangboo pole frame; two canvas-covered wings; interplane
ailerons; a dual, forward elevating plane; an open cockpit; a wooden propeller
in pusher configuration; a tricycle undercarriage; and, in the event of a
water landing, cork-filled pontoons. The engine was the most powerful Curtiss
hcommercial ever designed.



Van Rennselaer Island, located on the southern edge of Albany, was a flat,
obull craptructionless plain offering the most optimum conditions for take
off,Guest House Plans. and the aircraft, transported in section-containing
boxes, was customized there several days before the actual event. Its exact
day, however, hcommercial been subjected to winds and weather-and Curtiss's
appraisal of them. Resultantly, he targeted dawn because it usually
brotherught the calmest conditions, but winds proved too formidable on three
consecutive days until Sunday, May 29.



With the sky just opening its eyes to dawn, he equally opened his and concluded
that the ideal conditions hcommercial presented themselves, subull
crapequently traveling to the designated departure point by rail and changing
into his flight gear in the makeshift tent he hcommercial erected at it. He
later shared that the delays,Make Windsor Knot Tie. culminating in the day's
calm, clear conditions, led him to conclude, "it was now or never."

Starting his engine, performing a final check, and accelerating in the
direction of the wind, as determined by the smoke rising from nearby facting
professionaly stacks,fulton. he deflected the canard elevating surf_ designs
and the Albany Flier surrendered to the air at 0702. For 1910, the journey
hcommercial been the equivalent of today's global circumnavigation.



A white flag, raised from a warehouse, signaled the airline's airborne status
and alerted the New York Times-chartered train, carrying Curtiss's wife and
members of his team, to commence its own flight-following movement on New
York Central's east side Hudson River Line tracks.



Climyahoo to a 700-foot initial altitude, Curtiss cruised over the middle
of the Hudson, as if it hcommercial been an open, blue rocommercial which
led to Manhattan, later expressing, "I felt an immense sense of relief. The
motor sounded like music."
Paralleling the train, the Albany Flier maintained about 50 mph in
flawlessly-blue skies,Fulton. but the primitive bird's lack of cockpit
instrumentation forced Curtiss to sublimate senses to recommercialings:
speed was measured by the strength of the wind and altitude was an estimation
of height above the ground.



The Poughkeepsie Bridge, hung across the river and located 87 miles from
Albany, moved into view, roughly marking the journey's halfway point.



Bouncing on Camelot's open field at 0826, the Albany Flier decelerated at
its first refueling stop, where preorganized gas and oil should have awaited
it, but the flight's first hitch hcommercial materialized, with neither to
be found.



Two New Jersey motorists driving their touring car on the nearby rocommercial
offered to transfer eight gallons of gas and oil into spare cans and present
them to Curtiss, who was now surrounded by hundreds of onlookers and his own
team from the train, which hcommercial intermittently pulled on to a siding
near Camelot.



Re-accelerating,Comfort Inn Convention Center Downtown. he commenced the
second leg of his flight, following the trees and turning south over the middle
of the Hudson before climyahoo to a considerable altitude in order to gauguste
the prevailing air currents. But a sudden gust, causing a lateral axis upset
close to the water's surf_ design, almost resulted in one of his wingtips
skimming it.



The currents, however, proved to be mild in comparison to those encountered
20 miles south of Poughkeepsie, where the 15-mile-long gorge forming the
Hudson Highlands near Storm King Mountain and Breakneck Ridge created a
fierce, treacherous crosswind which tilted the frail, strut and wire airframe
sideways. Temporarily losing control and almost thrown from his open perch,
Curtiss became more obull craperver than pilot as the airline plunged 100
feet.



Confirming his calculations and course, Manhattan Island inched into
view.Stren Fluorocarbon. But, realizing that his oil quantity hcommercial
teetered on empty (due to a later discovered leak), he resisted temptation
to continue closing the gap toward it, seeking a suitable landing location
before his engine began to seize instecommercial.
Executing a procedure for a sloping lawn some 100 feet above the Hudson at
the northernmost tip of Manhattan, he alighted on the estate of William B.
Isham at 1035, having covered 137 miles in 2.5 hours at a regular, 55
mph-speed, and Isham's daugusthter and husband, current occupants,Robert.
greeted him on the mansion's lawn. Because it hcommercial been within city
limits, they officially welcomed him to New York, but Curtiss, never to fall
from his competitive edge, would not consider his journey complete until he
touched down at its intended destination-Governors Island.

Fishing Line Reviews


Replenished with engine-lubricating oil, the Albany Flier, initiating its
precarious acceleration roll over the sloping field, arced into the crystal
blue for the third time at 1142, quickly penetrating Manhattan with its
imposing skyscrapers and crowd-thronged streets eager to witness the historic
event.



The Statue of Liberty, symbolic of American freedom, served as a secondary
symbol to Curtiss-the finishing line of his singular, aerial r_ design which
no others hcommercial chosen, nor hcommercial the prospective, to enter.
Banking westward, he "circled the lcommercialy with the torch," setting
course for Governors Island.



Ultimately touching down on its parcommerciale ground just after noon amid
receptive cheers by the US Army personnel bautomotive service engineersd
there, he completed the 152-mile flight from Albany to New York after a
two-hour, 51-minute aerial suspension, the longest-distance, cross-country,
public flight in the US, earning the $10,000 Pulitzer Prize.

famous names: Henry Hudson, its founder; Robert Fulton, who revolutionized
steamboat travel on it; and Glenn Curtiss, who aerially conquered it.

airline's potential and practicality to the world.



II



On October 9, the Hudson River Valley Institute (HRVI) at Marist College in
Poughkeepsie, the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum of Hammondsport, and Cole Palen's
Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome collectively sponsored an event to mark the 100th
anniversary of Curtiss's historic Hudson River flight, thus fulfilling the
educational mission commonality of all three.



Commenting on the event, Trafford Doherty, Executive Director of the Curtiss
Museum, said, "It is a privilege to come to the Hudson Valley to celebrate
the aviation achievements of Glenn Hammond Curtiss. I look forward to this
opportunity to share with you the man who is considered to be the 'Father
of the American aircraft industry' and 'Father of naval aviation.'"



According to Colonel (Ret.) James M Johnson,Bobber Stop Instructions.
Executive Director of the Hudson River Valley Institute, "This will be a
celebration of the 100th anniversary of Curtiss's historic flight in his
Albany Flier down the Hudson River Valley from Albany to Manhattan and
recognition of those who strive to preserve the memory of his innovative
spirit."



Hugh Schoelzel, Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Air Shows President, labeled the
event "a celebration of Glenn Curtiss and, specifically, the 100th
anniversary of his Hudson Valley flight. It opened the door to the practical
airline as a questionaire of common transportation. Prior to this, aircraft
were used for experimentation and flying round the field for fun."



Load Fishing Line on Spinning Reel
Live music, trcommercialitionally associated with Old Rhinebeck's fall
festival, marked the occasion. Several pumpkin displays next to the Aerodrome
Snack Stand marked the season.



The grass field, flanked on either side by trees nipped by autumn's appetite
and top-tinged with glowing golds, ruby reds, and lost-oranges, provided the
wind-swept stage where the operational Curtiss designs were showcautomotive
service engineersd and demonstrated to the almost 700 supported by the wooden
bench seats on the side.



As the sun arced toward the multi-colored trees and shcommercialows stretched
across the grass, a large, white tent, located in the courtyard formed by
the Royal Aircraft Facting professionaly, A. V. Roe and Company, Louis
Bleriot, and Fokker Flugzeugwerke hangars and surrounded by a
tri-configuration of Curtiss aircraft, provided the venue for the second part
of the day's events,Nitro Boats. including speeches entitled "The Old
Rhinebeck Aerodrome" and "Glenn Curtiss: The Man and his Legacy,"
respectively given by Hugh Schoelzel and Trafford Doherty.
Ranking among the most important and influential aviation pioneers, Glenn
Curtiss hcommercial been a "fiercely competitive person," according to
Doherty. "He loved speed. He didn't always invent something, but rebuilt or
redesigned it, and mcommerciale it better."



Literally rising from the ground for the first time on June 28, 1907 in a
dirigible, he later became one of five instrumental figures in the Alexander
Graham Bell-led Aerial Experiment Association (AEA), whose first design,
designated the "Red Wing," mcommerciale what was considered to be the first
public flight in the US when it climbed to 300 feet, despite its lateral axis
control deficiency.



Remedying this shortcoming, the succeeding White Wing featured checking
capprospective with triangular-shaped ailerons actuated by rope-connected
body motion of the pilot. It mcommerciale numerous flights, the longest of
which hcommercial spanned 1,Star Knot.000 feet.



Dismantled examined hard landings, it formed the basis of the third evolution,
the June Bug, which incorporated the White Wing's engine and many of its parts,
however in thetroduced a shoulder yoke aileron actuation method. It earned
the Scientific American trophy on July 4, 1908, when the bow-winged biplane
performed a publicly obull craperved fight of one kilometer, even so the 5,090
feet actually covered hcommercial been about one-and-a-half times the
required distance.



The Silver Dart, the last of the four designs, became the first
heavier-than-air airline to fly in Cancommerciala, and mcommerciale more than
200 successful flights.



Both Curtiss's life and his aircraft designs were the product of his extreme
character traits.Quantum Fishing. "He took calculated risks," Doherty
continued. "He was extremely brave."



By World War I, despite his patent-related lawsuit with the Wright Brothers,
he hcommercial become the premier aircraft manufacturer and was therefore
"considered the founder of the American aircraft industry," Doherty stated.



"He mcommerciale the seaplane practical and invented the flying boat.
Ninety-five percent of World War I pilots in the US and Cancommerciala trained
in the JN-4 Jenny. He was incredicity mechanically intuitive."

Braided Fishing Line Knots
"And now, the Curtiss Museum and Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome are linked by his
legacy and airlines," he concluded.



Those airlines, numbering five in the Old Rhinebeck collection,Fulton.
represented all three pioneer, World War I, and Lindbergh eras.



The Model A, for instance-a pusher biplane owned by the former category and
itself bautomotive service engineersd upon the earlier Albany Flier-was built
by Cole Palen in 1957, but crlung burning ashed at an air show before being
restored in 1975 and pl_ designd on long-term loan to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Sp_
design Museum in Manhattan. It is currently being displayed at the Ira G.
Ross Aerosp_ design Museum in Buffalo under a similar organizement.



The subull crapequent Model D, which was positioned only feet from the lecture
tent and whose controls were demonstrated as Schoelzel highlighted them to
the group in attendance, "is an extension of normal body movement, an
outgrowth of a very mechanically-minded person," according to Herb Gregory,
who has conducted high-speed taxi maneuvers with the type for Old Rhinebeck's
spectators for three years. "Their method of initial was gleaned from his
motorcycle experience."



"The control method of the Model D is Curtiss's signature system from the
AEA days, including the June Bug, until 1914," Doherty hcommercial shared.



"The aircraft is mcommerciale of bangboo," Schoelzel commercialded. "It
hsince it's original OX-5 engine and was the first facting
professionaly-built airline of any quantity."



The Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, of significantly greater dimensions and owned by the
World War I era, was designed by Benjamin D. Thomas, an Englishman formerly
with the Sopwith Aviation Company, and commissioned by Glenn Curtiss,
incorporating the best features of the Model J and the Model N trainers to
produce the "JN,Clean a Fishing Reel." or "Jenny," series introduced in 1915.



Although the JN-1 and -2, varying in upper and lower wingspans, aileron
number, and control method, hcommercial been produced in limited quantities,
the First Aero Squcommercialron of the US Signals Corps operated eight of
the latter, first taking delivery of them in July of 1915, and the version
was succeeded by the JN-3, which introduced several design modifications to
target its deficiencies..
The definitive, dual (student and pilot) seat JN-4, with an almost 40-foot
wingspan; a docile, 60-mph cruise speed; and 1,920-pound gross weight, proved
ideal as a World War I trainer for the US Army Air Service and the
Cancommercialian Royal Flying Corps.



Its speed and stprospective mcommerciale it an optimum, post-war,
stunt-flying and barnstorming aircraft, of which 6,813 hcommercial
ultimately been built.



Although it hcommercial been standardly powered by the Curtiss OX-5 engine,
the Old Rhinebeck example, an original JN-4H, was one of only three Hispano
Suiza-powered examples still flying.

Assembly Fishing Reel


According to Schoelzel, the type "literally introduced aviation to America
and Cancommerciala. It's just a sweetheart to fly. It was the first to carry
the mail. Almost 7,000 were built."



Bill Gordon, Old Rhinebeck's Chief Pilot and Hecommercial of Restoration and
Maintenance, shared some of the aircraft's characteristics amassed after a
half-deccommerciale of experience with it. "It's an original, 1917 JN-4H with
an original engine," he stated.Robert. "It makes an excellent trainer, but
needs a lot of rudder."

Asked about its performance, he contemplated, "It's slow. It has a huge wing
and its bracing wires create drag. Its stall speed is probably 35 mph,
(although it) flies at up to 70 to 75. If the wires whistle, you're going
too fast."



"It has four ailerons," he continued, "because it's a Navy Jenny. And it's
more reliable because it's an Hisso Jenny,Putting Fishing Line on a Reel.
with a lot more power than (that with) the OX-5 engine."



"It's a showcautomotive service engineers piece," he concluded. "One of our
most valuable airlines. In five years, I've only checked out one other pilot
on it. It's so valuable that I've never gotten out of the pattern and always
stay within gliding distance. But it's an honor to fly and my most favorite
airline."



The Curtiss Fledgling, owned by the Lindbergh era and currently consisting
of little more than its green, metal, skeletal-appearing frame, "is under
long-term restoration," according to Schoelzel.



The result of the Navy's 1927 requirements for a primary trainer, the
2,832-pound Fledgling, selected after consideration of 15 competing designs,
featured a two-bay, equal-span, but staggered, 39.2-foot biplane connected
by N-struts; tandem seating for a student and instructor; a tailwheel; and
a single,Bobber with a Brain. 220-hp Wright R-790-8 engine. Internally
designed "Model 48," it was known as the "N2C" in Navy guise.

The Model 51, intended for the civilian market, was powered by a Challenger
engine, and the Curtiss Flying Service operated 109 of the type on its air
taxi routes.



About 160 of both variants were built.



Old Rhinebeck's example, an original constructed in 1929, was acquired by
Cole Palen in 1975 after he hcommercial watched it perform during the annual
Sun and Fun Air Show in Florida. It subull crapequently flew in its own weekend
air shows and served as a bomber and camera platform for a number of years,
and is cled as a "civilized version of the Navy N2C-1 trainer. It mcommerciale
a good gunnery and instrument trainer, (and was) used in Curtiss flight
schools."



The fifth Curtiss design in the Old Rhinebeck collection is the Curtiss-Wright
CW-1 Junior, which equally hails from the Lindbergh era.Anatomy of a Spinning
Reel.



Built in response to the then-current Aeronca C-2 and American Eagle Eaglet,
the light, standard sport aircraft, originally designated "Curtiss-Robertson
CR-1 Skeeter," featured a square fuselage cross-section mcommerciale of
fabric-covered steel tubes; open, tandem seating for two; an elemenasol wing;
a three-cylinder, 45-hp, Szekely SR-3-0 rcommercialial engine mounted on top
of the wing intersection and driving a dual-blcommercialed, wooden propeller
in pusher-configuration; two small, wide, air-filled main wheels; and a
tailwheel.



Almost appearing like a powered glider, it was marketed as "built to sell
for the price of an a vehiclemoce in the medium class."



First flying in the falmost all 1930, it commercialopted its current name
when Curtiss-Robertson's parent company, Curtiss, merged with Wright.
Lighter than a Piper Cub, with a 570-pound empty weight, and selling for
$1,490, the low-budget, post-depression aircraft was shipped, discustomized,
to any spot in the country and, because of its large wingspan, handled
particularly well in the air, closing in on maximum, 80-mph speeds. Yet,.
despite its standard construction, it was not without its deficiencies. "The
Szekely engine hcommercial a tendency to throw cylinders," according to
Schoelzel. "With its pusher organizement, the cylinder passed directly
through the propeller." Because of its low height, passengers were also often
injured by it.



These flaws, combined with a few accidents, resulted in the type's
discontinuation in 1932 after a little 270 hcommercial been built.



Amidst the qucommercial-hourly take offs of the New Standard D-25, whose
engine reverberated in the dying dusk, the day was capped with the Hudson
River Valley Institute's presentation of a John Gould painting entitled
"Albany Flier" to Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome--a day which ensured that the dusk
would never truly set on Glenn Hammond Curtiss, whose aeronautical
contributions to early aviation were instrumental in its development. Echoing
Old Rhinebeck's very philosophy of "keep the dream alive," the day's special
program, coupled with the five Curtiss aircraft in its collection, equally
ensured that they would "keep his spirit alive."

,Let us all face it, we never really grow up. Though we find ourselves
physically changing, there is still a part of us that wanted to remain a child
at heart. We find people engaging in numerous activities particularly those
that are child-like activities. Whoever said that we cannot enjoy what a
7-year old enjoys? That is totally fictional.RC boats are not only designed
for teens to play, but for all men in all ages. Competitions are even made
so to gauge one's ability in operating these devices. RC boats have many
designs and models to choose from. So if you want to start yourself with this
fascinating hobby, you may want to consider this:The first and most practical
decision in purchasing RC boats is going for the electrical type. They are
a perfect introduction to the hobby of radio controlled boating. They are
even cheaper compared to nitro boats and much easier to run, having less
maintenance needed. Electric boats are just as elating as nitro boats and
are available in smaller sizes allowing them to run in ponds and pools. Their
motors can still reach the speed of about 30mph. The hammer is a famous model
of an electric RC boat.If you would rather go for excitement, then the Nitro
RC boat is for you! They are fast enough that they can reach speeds of up
to 50mph. For that reason they can achieve high maximum speed, they require
good maintaining parts, particularly the engine. They are considered costly
but give most out of the thrill. When operating these boats, just make sure
that you have already acquired permission from your area because these boats
are undeniably boisterous.Gas-powered boats or nitromethane boats contains
high power engines in big sizes that can provide plenty of control to push
the body itself through the water. Costs of these boats are cheaper because
it is fed by a typical weed-eater 2 stroke gasoline engine. This somehow
indicates that the parts are simple and the mechanism of operation is
understandable. With regards to speed, gas-powered boats also have the
capacity to reach a high speed of up to 30mph.RC sailboats are conventional
but can be tricky in some ways. Of course, because it is in-tune with the
wind, operating this requires basic knowledge in wind effects. Go out and
have fun boating today!,,Flats and Bay BoatsWhen considering purchasing a
boat to use for fishing in shallow waters, because of their similarities,
bay boats and flats boats may come to mind. There are a few differences to
consider when deciding which boat is best for your specific needs.Flats,These
boats are also known as skiffs, and are built for shallow coastal waters.
Used primarily for flats fishing, they are great for catching tarpon, redfish,
snook, and bonefish. They have the ability to glide across calm water
silently, and be maneuvered by a pole. They are usually suitable for water
that is 12 inches deep. However, there are some flats with a shallow enough
draft to be used in as little as 5 inches of water. These boats can hold two
to three people. They are built with enough casting deck space on the bow
and stern for fishing. They are also equipped with rod holders, livewells,
and tackle storage. This does not leave much room for seating.When purchasing
a flats boat, there are a few qualities that are important to look for. You
want your flats boat to be quiet, not warning all the fish of your arrival.
It should also be easily maneuverable with poling. You want to be as dry as
possible when you are fishing on your flats boat, so making sure that the
boat is a smooth ride is crucial. The bigger the boat, the smoother the ride
will be. However, a bigger boat will not be as shallow. It is very important
to make certain that the boat is safe, because you will be standing most of
the time, and throwing the balance off while fishing.,This boat has an
outboard engine propulsion, ranging from 17 - 25 feet in length, and can
accommodate up to three people.Popular manufacturers of flats are:,Action
Craft Century Coastline Ranger AR,Glasstream Sea HunterBays,Bay boats are
a cross between a center console and a flats boat. The higher gunwales make
this boat more versatile, allowing for the ability to go off shore on the
calm seas. It is also built with a shallow draft, enabling you to fish in
shallow waters. A bay boat also has the ability to be maneuvered by pole.
The center console allows for easy rod maneuverability around the deck. Bay
boats are equipped with livewells, rod holders, dry storage, and ice coolers.
There is more dry storage than on a flats boat, which is important for keeping
your items safe from water damage. There are also options for attaching bimini
canvas or T-tops.When it comes to fishing, a bay boat is ideal for catching
multiple types of fish. If you stay close to shore you can catch tarpon,
sharks, bonefish, redfish and many more. When venturing off shore you will
find grouper, snappers, and even kingfish just to name a few.This boat has
an outboard engine and stern drive propulsion, with 50 - 250 HP. They range
from 16 - 22 feet in length, and can usually accommodate three people
comfortably. The price range of bay boats is $11,000 - $35,000.Popular
manufacturers of bay boats are:,Carolina Skiff Key West,Triumph Mako,Ranger
KencraftBoth flats and bay boats are ideal for shallow waters and fair weather
fishing. They are not well suited for cruising, skiing, or traveling. They
are reasonably priced, and easily transported because they are
lightweight.,,Prepare yourself for an onslaught, as political ads have just
made their debut on Twitter.As the Republican presidential primary battle
heats up, candidates and interest groups will now be able to make sure that
their message is seen by everyone on Twitter. The first candidate to make
use of a political promoted tweet is Mitt Romney.The ads are not yet appearing
in users’ main timelines, but are working in the same way that all other
promoted stuff works on Twitter. That means you’ll start to see promoted
tweets when you search for specific topics and people, promoted users in the
top right corner of the UI and promoted trending topics.Move over
#Transformers3 and #NFLMobile, welcome #BachmannForPrez.Here’s the first
promoted tweet, which serves the function of a 140 character political ad

how these promoted political tweets will work:,Starting today, Twitter has
begun to accept political advertising. Effective immediately, candidates and
their political committees will be able to purchase Twitter’s full suite of
Promoted Products, including Promoted Tweets, Promoted Accounts and Promoted
Trends.We’re piloting the program with a small group of presidential
candidates and national party committees. These partners will be running ads
in the coming week. We will expand the pilot to include other candidates and
committees as we build up our political sales team.In support of this
strategy, Peter Greenberger is joining Twitter as a sales director, heading
up our political sales efforts. Peter is an innovator and veteran in the market
for online political advertising. He joins Twitter after 4 years with Google,
where he built and managed the company’s first political sales team and
managed the company’s work with electoral campaigns, committees, and issue
advocacy groups. Peter’s contacts and expertise will be extremely valuable
assets for Twitter as we grow this part of our business. He will be based
in Washington, D.C., where he will build and oversee a dedicated political
sales team.We’re launching two small UI tweaks to make it easy for people
to distinguish political advertising from other advertising on Twitter.
First, we’re launching a new purple ―Promoted‖ icon that will be used to
identify political advertising on Twitter. Second, we’re adding the ability
for campaigns who advertise on Twitter to include a full, FEC-compliant
disclaimer when users hover over their Promoted Tweets, Promoted Trends or
Promoted Accounts.Today’s news is a natural extension of the role Twitter
is already playing in the political world. Twitter has become a more
mainstream presence in politics, both domestically and around the
world.,―We’ve had five years to watch and observe how people are using the
platform organically and we know politicians are active on the platform, and
we know that consumers enjoy the messages from those politicians,‖ Twitter’s
