Snack Social Summary-A very necessary Twitter update, Instagram’s save draft feature, and registering to vote through Snapchat

Twitter has finally released the update that will cause community managers a few less headaches. Media will no longer count towards your 140 characters in a tweet!

Just in time for fashion week ‘season’ where Instagram really does come into its own with arty fashion shots, the platform has released a save draft button. No longer will you have to think on the spot and panic about your captions and hashtags.

Facebook Messenger introduces polls in a bid to help you make group decisions easier, as people will be able to vote on different options in a clear and concise way. The feature is essentially the same as the original Facebook polls which was later scrapped. The app will also be able to pick up on a request for money, and direct you to a link to pay through Messenger itself.

With the US Presidential elections taking place this November, Snapchat will now let users register to vote within the app. For a platform whose target audience is not actually old enough to vote this seems like an interesting move for the social channel.
