Pluggio – Makes Twitter Easy

Posted by Kent Beatty | Posted in Misc | Posted on 17-07-2010

 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!

First, a bit of introduction before my first post on TweetValley: 

My name is Katie Martell, I’m a millennial in B2B marketing, and Twitter got me a job.

I’m living proof that combining valuable content and insightful comments makes Twitter a useful, powerful tool.

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 post was originally posted at KentBeatty.com as The Rise of Social Networks.

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:

Boom of OnlineCommunities

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.

Social Media Tracking Tools – Part II, Cligs

Posted by Kevin McIntyre | Posted in Misc | Posted on 16-09-2009

Cligs,  is a new URL shortening site that does much more than shorten URLs for Twitter etc.  I like the tracking mechanism.  It gives almost instant feedback on the effectiveness of links you are providing to your readers, followers and tribes.  The screen shot shows the activity I received from just a few tweets from last night.  I was surprised because I have a limited following in the specific Twitter account that I tweeted from.  Even the hyperlink in the beginning of this post is a Clig.  Enjoy Cligs.

Cligs count

Here is a graphical representation.  Use your imagination when considering long term tracking of a Clig.

Within 14 hours Harry produced the mug shot from when John Mayer was arrested in Atlanta on May 26, 2001 for driving with a suspended license:

“Twitter Will Kill You” – a rockumentary

Posted by David Druckenmiller | Posted in Misc | Posted on 21-08-2009

If you haven’t seen the David Crowder Band Rockumentary “Twitter Will Kill You”, it is worth a view and sure to bring a smile.  The band gives the short video a sort of “The Monkeys” like quality.  Very creative and apropos to the twitter experience.

If you are not familiar with their music, you should give them a listen.  Solid faith oriented guys. My favorite track is “No One Like You” from their album, Illuminate.   The clip is perhaps a good example of embracing a popular cultural phenomenon and using it to promote your own work in a creative and dynamic way. It currently has over 82,000 views.  Its also interesting that within the clip the band has fun with another very popular clip on YouTube, “David After Dentist”.

Posted by Kevin McIntyre | Posted in Misc | Posted on 21-08-2009

As seen on TubeMogul.

This is just one more reason to use Twitter.  It’s importance on the Internet just seems to grow exponentially day by day.

July 31st, 2009

Want to automatically tweet your latest videos? Great news: there’s now a TubeMogul app for that. When uploading videos via TubeMogul, you can now check a box at the bottom of any video’s “Launch” page that will automatically send a tweet once the video goes live. The feature is basically TwitterFeed for video (those who know what that means).

Tweets look like this: “VIDEO: [Video’s Title…] http//…”

And you might just want to use it: according to our latest research, audiences clicking on video links from Twitter watch a video 36.91% longer than viewers referred by Facebook and 49.98% longer than viewers referred by Digg, making Twitter an important medium for those content creators trying to reach the most engaged audiences.
