Tweet Chat

8 Apr

Did you know that Twitter can be used as chat? You may already use it like a chatroom, but did you know that now a website allows you to chat using their tool? It’s called TweetChat.

How does it work? Each tweet automatically gets the hashtag added and the room auto-updates. The site says that you can use the “User Control” area to feature people you like or to block spammers. It continues to say that “Smart pausing” has been added so when you scroll down the page, it will not refresh, helping you avoid replying to the wrong person.

What’s Coming in Web 3.0

17 Jan

Are you wondering how to get your business ready for Web 3.0? I recently did a speech on this topic for the Web SIG Cleveland.

Three main points of Web 3.0:

  1. The need for relevant information and help
  2. User not aware of creating and consuming information
  3. User forgets about the device an focus on content

Twitter is New Autograph Book

7 Jul

If you got a reply back from a celebrity on social media, is it the same as getting an autograph from them? The other day I overheard a Mom say to her son, “Did you hear back from Swisher?” He said, “He tweeted me back.” In minds of today’s kid, it seems like a response on social media is just as good as an autograph. The only question I have is the tweet authentic or did the celebrity, athlete, etc… have a ghostwriter do it for them?

FavStar Tracks the Best Tweets

8 Jun

With the barrage of social media information, how do you sort through it all? As Leading Hands forecasted, as we move into Web 3.0, the idea of curated information will become more prevalent. In this case, FavStar tracks the best of the best with Twitter. You can find out the best tweet of the day and the best tweet of all-time.

What I like best about FavStar is that you can review what your best tweets to date are according to their website. For example, here the best tweets for Leading Hands Through Technology – http://favstar.fm/users/leadinghands. You don’t need a Twitter account to surf through their website. However, you can login with your account to favorite tweets and get on the FavStar bandwagon.

Have you tried FavStar?

Twitter Lingo: MT

4 May

Do you know Twitter lingo? You may be aware if you put RT in a tweet it means “Retweet”. To me a RT is like forwarding an email. Did you know that MT is a “Modified Tweet”? An MT is essentially updating the original tweet so you send it as your own and conform to the 140 character limit.

If you are not on Twitter, sign-up and discover what you are missing. Even if you don’t want to tweet you should secure you name and listen in.

Read more at this post I found about it.

Twitter Archive

17 Mar

Did you know that you can download your entire Twitter transactions as an archive? In December Twitter announced the functionality, however it truly wasn’t available until recent. All you have to is, “Go to settings and scroll down to the bottom to check for the option to request your Twitter archive. If you do see it, go ahead and click the button. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download.” Thank you Twitter!

Tweeting or Non-Tweeting Section

8 Feb

In the olden days when you entered a restaurant you were asked, “Smoking or Non-Smoking”? Smoking was later banned in most states and in those states smokers are required to smoke outside. Why couldn’t the same thing happen with Tweeting?

If you think about it, smoking in public places became a nuisance so non-smokers lobbied and pushed smokers out. Could Twittering, Facebooking, whatever you call it, become annoying enough that you will be required tweet in a special section? The next time you go out to a restaurant would you enjoy the experience if no one tweeted? If so, then perhaps you would be in favor of a non-tweeting section.
