I’ve been spending more time on social networking lately, mainly Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook, it’s fairly easy for me to learn about the people I want to friend and those who want to friend me. But Twitter goes faster, has less space and can be more abstruse.
Image by Matt Johnston The never-ending question of quality vs quantity of Twitter Followers is similar to the argument of how many people you should connect with on LinkedIn or “friend” on any other social networking site. Yesterday I wrote that without enough connections on LinkedIn, you will not show up in as many search results . With Twitter, the Followers vs Following ratio is an important one that will also speak lots about your Twitter Brand. Windmill Networking treats all of the social networking sites the same. It all comes down to your objective, your brand, and implementation of these through the unique functionalities and environments of the different sites.

Odeo released a new service today called Twttr , which is a sort of “group send” SMS application. Each person controls their own network of friends. When any of them send a text message to “40404,” all of his or her friends see the message via sms. This launched officially today, and a few select insiders were playing with the service at the Valleyschwag party in San Francisco last night. People are using it to send messages like “Cleaning my apartment” and “Hungry”. You can also add friends via text message, nudge friends, etc.
Did you know it was exactly five years ago today that Jack Dorsey and a few other team members working at Odeo first started to work on what would become Twitter? How do I know? Dorsey is tweeting about it right now. While programming began five years ago, it wasn’t until eight days later, on March 21, 2006 , that Dorsey sent the famous first ( non-automated ) tweet: “inviting coworkers”.
New to Twitter? This post will drastically improve the information you get from Twitter. For example, one of the most underused features on Twitter is the Favorite button that acts as a great way of bookmarking what you want to come back to later. It’s underused but the people who do use it are perhaps the best curators of content on the web because you can essentially piggyback on their hard work and get all their amazing content for free. It’s how I find lots of interesting things and one of my first ports of calls when I need to read amazing content without trawling the web. You should probably start putting Twitter on steroids yourself…
Twitter’s 140-character limit has forced the internet to get a little creative in how it shares links. You’ll likely have noticed that links on Twitter aren’t in your standard www.websitename.com/articlename format – instead, they’re shortened using URL shorteners to take up as little precious characters as possible. We’ve compiled a list of 5 great URL shorteners you can use to share your links on Twitter without worrying about going over the character limit (and 3 honorable mentions, too). Here are my favorite five URL shorteners, in no particular order. These are among the most popular URL shorteners out there, and they offer features like stats, tracking, and integration with some of the most-used Twitter dashboards. 1. bit.ly
Imagine a jumble sale just after a gaggle of pensioners have steamed through it. It's a haphazard pile of clashing colours and styles, heaps of dross tangled up with the odd gem. Yet if you let your eye adjust to the chaos, and then rummage, it's surprising what turns up. That, more or less, is what Twitter is like.
Bonjour à toutes et à tous. Lorsque l’on cherche à évaluer l’efficacité d’une présence sur les médias sociaux, on en vient souvent à entendre des phrases telles que « Ils ont 6.000 followers sur Twitter », ou encore, « Les gens adorent ! 10.000 fans sur Facebook ». Pourtant, lorsque j’avais posé la question sur la Fan-Page de Kriisiis.fr sur Facebook, vous aviez été nombreux à dire que non, ces indicateurs ne sont pas pertinents .
Here at Buffer we’ve been developing new features and often find ourselves pondering how to make our product better. This week we’d like to share some of the thoughts we’ve had about how questioning our actions more can help us. What we have found helps us a lot in various situations is to simply pause and actively reflect upon what we are doing at that moment. It seems obvious, but it helps us to focus, see problems from more viewpoints and work on only the changes which are really required for an improved experience inside our product. We’ve learned that asking ourselves “why” again and again is crucial to reach the right “what”.
I’ve long had a theory that the easier you are to contact, the stupider the questions become. For instance, how many times has someone sent you an instant message about a simple question, and if you answer the question right away, you get the same question from the same person again? If instead you missed the message and waited five minutes to respond, and asked them what’s up, and their first response is, “I figured it out”, and then you never receive that same question again. Should that person have IMed you instead of thinking?
This past January, I wrote up the “ Top 15 Twitter acronyms ” for @pistachio ‘s Touchbase blog. As readers rightly pointed out, many were abbreviations or initialisms — hence the title for this post.
