Twitter has changed some people’s lives by allowing us to connect with kindred spirits and talk about a wide variety of subjects. Looking to express what your twitter friends mean to you? This Twitter Love Song is written and produced by Marcome & Bruno Pelletier. The song takes inspiration from songwriter Marcome’s (@Marcome) Twitter friendship with Reg Saddler (@zaibatsu), according to the song’s YouTube profile. “I would really like to give a huge thank you to Reg Saddler for inspiring me to do this Twitter Song project,” Marcome says in the profile. “I’m grateful to my friends and followers on Twitter who gave me so much love and kindness. I’m proud to be alive because you are there with me!” As the song goes:
Twitter me some love / follow me / follow you
Twitter me some love

Pluggio (which is entirely web based) does much more than fix Twitter’s shortcomings. It manages to create an entire workflow system around Twitter that makes it easy to manage nearly every aspect of your Tweeting life.
This is a really great twitter client, simple enough for everyone
yet powerful enough for power tweeters!
Use this to publish “Rolling Tweets”! A rolling tweet is essentially a bunch of tweets that are titles of articles that others have written that include the link to those articles for my networks to check out. These posts are generated by the RSS feeds I choose to have pulling into my RSS section.
Pluggio.com has a suggested follow and unfollow feature. Each day when I login to my account, I am given up to 20 suggestions of people to follow and unfollow based on my bio and keywords.
You can have multiple Twitter accounts synced to one Pluggio account – Very handy!

For me, twitter is a new platform for the fundamentals. Social media, with all of its hype and what many predict to be a short-lived glory, is a powerful new place for the fundamentals
But you’re already reading a blog about Twitter – there’s no need to convince you that there is now a necessary and important place for it in our lives.
Who do need convincing are many B2B marketers. (Not all, just many.) Recently I attending a breakfast/panel discussion for those in the marketing automation field. Social media was brought up for discussion, dutifully, and I was surprised at how quickly it was disregarded as hype/just the latest trend.

This Social Networks Infographic spans the timeline from 1995 up until today. You’ll notice the really large social networks exploded into existence during the 2003 – 2006 period. Twitter had a rather late beginning:
What’s next? For one thing: Personal Branding. According to Chad Levitt, parts of the next wave of innovation will revolve around social networks, personal brands, massive amounts of data, collaboration and making senese of it all to create value. Also, expect more internal company social networking.
