. Part of the beauty of Twitter is that you can follow your friends, organizations, public figures, or strangers you find interesting. But no matter how carefully you've groomed your following list, out of the millions of tweets written today, are you seeing the absolute most relevant ones to you?
Last week, a commercial Twitter spamming tool ( tweettornado.com ) pitching itself as a "fully automated advertising software for Twitter" hit the market, potentially empowering phishers, spammers, malware authors and everyone in between with the ability to generate bogus Twitter accounts and spread their campaigns across the micro-blogging service. TweetTornado allows users to create unlimited Twitter accounts, add unlimited number of followers, which combined with its ability to automatically update all of bogus accounts through proxy servers with an identical message make it the perfect Twitter spam tool.
ITV launched the new series of Primeval in the UK tonight and amplified the Primeval TV broadcast online.
Though you may think that Twitter gets, oh, far too much attention, the reality is that this is something that is growing fast. Damn fast.
Participatory Marketing Network Study: Gen Y’s Are Not Yet Taking Flight on Twitter Social networking is hot for Gen Y, but Twitter has yet to catch on
The Twitter Lynchmob kicked off when a UK Twitterer dared to find Stephen Fry "a bit boring" has made the New York Times . That is an astounding occurrence for what is still a tiny social network. But to me the more interesting thing about this is its another lesson (after quite a few in recent weeks) of the way Whuffie (Social Capital) really works in Social Networks, despite the best intentions of the optimists .
Just a month ago we talked about real-time search engines, verified accounts, trending Twitter giveaways, sponsored tweets, and Twitter chat as the five trends that you should be watching right now.
It may seem like an impossible task to keep up with all the Twitter apps that have come to market as of late. Even though you have plenty of directories to help with the process, we noticed that it's still difficult to ascertain which apps support multiple accounts. As more and more people are using Twitter for personal and professional reasons, the demand for a Twitter client to match those multifaceted needs is rising.
Sears is among a growing number of companies that are joining social media… (Associated Press ) Amazon.com Inc. shut like a book. Domino's Pizza Inc. was late but eventually delivered.
FYI – This list was not compiled to measure a twitter accounts success by its followers, it was merely created so it can automatically update the details for me since numbers can change daily. It was an easy option to keep up to date with the data. So hope it doesn’t come across as a competition!
One of the most demanded features for Twitter has been the ability to create groups, allowing members to focus on different sets of people they're following. For example, you could create groups for all of your fantasy league friends, colleagues at work, friends in real life, family members, and so on.
It's over two years now since my first impressions of Twitter as a communications tool got scribbled down...
Use of Twitter, the mobile phone-based micro-blogging service, rocketed nearly 1,000% in the UK over the past year, according to industry analysts HitWise. For the first time, the site has seen more visits than "social bookmarking" site Digg, which allows users to share links to sites. Twitter made headlines earlier in January, providing the first pictures of downed US Airways flight 1549.
Came across a cool little tool for tracking brands on twitter , called Tweetscribe . It allows you to track conversations about brands, people and products and get the searches via an RSS feed. The thing that is really cunning [IMHO] is the fact that you can do pretty thorough searches: by key words, by twitterer [is that the right name for someone who twitters?]
