Weekly NishIsHere — Issue 39

♣ Thought of the Week

♣ Twitter Education

◘ Sahil Bloom has taken his Twitter followers from zero to 5 lakhs in two years by following some of his own growth strategies. Those of you who want to learn Twitter Growth Hacking in Digital Marketing can follow this Twitter thread.

♣ Tech

◘ Elon Musk was asked for help by Ukrainian Minister a few weeks ago. Shortly after tweeting, Elon Musk moved his Starlink satellite to Ukraine. At the same time, he sent more equipment so that Ukrainians can access free internet. The Starlink app was the most downloaded app in Ukraine last week.

That’s why I like Twitter. How many things can happen fast just in one tweet.

Elon Musk’s Starlink was Ukraine’s most downloaded app last

This past Sunday, the Starlink mobile app, which allows users to connect to Elon Musk’s satellite internet service, became the most downloaded application from the Apple App Store in Ukraine.

◘ Many people do not like NFT, it includes many big heads of the cryptocurrency field. Recently, the creator of the popular cryptocurrency Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, shared some of his frustrations with the popular NFT Project Bored ape. There’s been a lot of controversy on Twitter about that, though Vitalik says he isn’t against the project. He just wants the Bored ape to do something good for the general public.

◘ Shortly after Vitalik’s interview, it was revealed that the bored ape’s creator company, Yoga Labs, had raised 450 million from VCs and investors. And now their valuation is only 4 billion. Ah!

Their company is only 14 months old and has only 11 employees! Where the world is going!

◘ Shortly after Vitalik’s interview, the founder of FTX, the world’s largest crypto exchange, posted a thread on Twitter about using NFT in games and developing games using their platform. The timing was interesting!

♣ Pop Culture

◘ Sonny finally admits that their number three Peter is really amazing!

◘ Reynolds and The Rock have taken their acting to a new level. Now movie after movie, they get paid millions of dollars just to show up as themselves.

Not only are they alone, but many more names can also be taken in this list. Harrison Ford, Bruce Ulysses, Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey!

This is how Jim Carrey’s character was written in the script — Jim is doing it, Jim is laughing like this! He is a legend!

I mean, their character was their performance. Mind blown!

◘ A few days ago, some students in Bangladesh did a flash mob of James Gunn’s “Peace Maker” series intro. James Gunn shared on his Twitter! Wow!

♣ Creator Economy

◘ I had previously written about the Patreon platform. Using this platform, creators from countries can earn money from their own fan followers. So far, Patreon has paid creators 3.5 billion! Jack Conte, founder and creator of Patreon, recently gave an interview about the future of his platform. People like me who are interested in Creator Economy must read this.
