The Most Complete Twitter Application List Available - 2011 Edition I believe this is the best, most complete and accurate list of valuable Twitter applications available on the internet right now. To be fair, I absolutely have merged and plagiarized other older and outdated lists that I found (the larger ones are credited below). However, I spent a good deal of time to clean out the dead applications, delete the apps that were overly quirky or being developed, focus more on the apps that increase productivity, and add in many of the new great apps that have come out over the past six months - particularly in the productivity / business apps section where my primary interest lies. I have also tagged the tools that cost money / have a premium option ($) as well as if they have a valuable free option (F/$). Finally, while application selection can be a personal thing, I tagged my favorite app (*) in each category. Simple Web Based Clients and Twitter Viewing Tools Twitter.com (*): Can't go wrong with this -- web, iPhone, etc. Track The Latest Trends and Tags
The Twitter of Tomorrow This afternoon, Twitter announced that it had officially, and secretly, filed documents to the S.E.C. in advance of its I.P.O. The company is worth billions upon billions of dollars, and its founders will become extremely rich sometime in the next year. But Twitter, as we experience it, is also set for a radical redesign sometime soon. The company’s finances are set to change; but its looks may be changing just as much. Twitter has evolved, particularly over the past couple of years, from a simple, text-based service toward something richer and fuller: users can now embed everything from pictures to Vines to full-on mini-apps within their tweets. What’s coming next is a more graphically intense Twitter that is marked by fundamental transformation of its core experience on mobile phones. In less than a week, Apple will launch a radical redesign of its core software, iOS 7. Twitter has other, more subtle threats to address, too. Some people will hate the new Twitter.
Using Google Spreadsheets to extract Twitter data Posted November 20, 2009 in How-to, twitter | 24 Comments so far Last weekend I was looking for ways to extract Twitter search data in a structured, easily manageable format. The two APIs I was using (Twitter Search and Backtweets) were giving good results – but as a non-developer I couldn’t do much with the raw data they returned. Instead, I needed to get the data into a format like CSV or XLS. Some extensive googling led me to this extremely useful post on Labnol, where I learnt about how to use the ImportXML function in Google Spreadsheets. Data you can extract from Twitter This walkthrough will teach you how to extract two types of Twitter data using Google Spreadsheets – tweets and links. Tweets are extracted using the Twitter Search API in conjunction with ImportFeed. Links are extracted using the Backtweets API in conjunction with ImportXML. I’m in a hurry, can I just do this right now? How to extract tweets containing links =ImportXML("
Stop Spamming Twitter First off, I would like to note that I am not a fan of spamming on Twitter, however as a business or as an individual if you want to specifically tweet lots of users about a product or important bit of information then here is how you do it right. Here is a trick of the trade that won't have users yelling at you for having filled their feed with essentially the same tweet, also this is a great way to actually personalise the tweet to the intended user. If you want to tweet multiple users to notify them about your important information be sure to mention their Twitter handle first in the tweet and create individual tweets for each. Twitter then see this tweet as a reply/conversation between 2 accounts and therefor it won't show up in other Twitter users feeds unless a user follows each of the accounts. Example Tweet: Earlier in the year from the #WADay photo campaign ie. The Twitter user would then copy and paste the same tweet but then change the usernames mentions. Connect: Authored by:
Weetbe.at triturer twitter jusqu'au bout des bits Ayant un peu abandonné mon compte twitter au profit de google plus, je viens un peu de me ressusciter en testant le site tweetbe.at qui permet non seulement de gérer nos listes de façon optimum, mais de suivre “en masse” des nouveaux comptes twitter (je vous laisse juge de l’interêt). Par exemple, vous pouvez suivre toutes les personnes qui ont fait un RT de vos messages. Quelqu’un qui vous fait un RT ne peut être que sympathique non? Alors il faut le suivre! Avec ce site vous pouvez commencer à suivre du monde en opérant des filtres plus ou moins savants. A moins que vous préfériez les ajouter uniquement dans des listes. Exemple : vous pouvez suivre les personnes suivis par @korgben qui ont plus de 1000 followers et qui followback plus de 80% des gens qui les suivent! En fait vous pouvez manipuler les listes comme bon vous semble, voilà une capture de tous les filtres disponibles. et vous pouvez affiner la recherche avec le profile de l’utilisateur.
Twitter Tests A New Signup Process Aimed At Getting New Users To Stick Around Longer Wired reports that Twitter is testing a new, smarter signup process that has been designed with the intention to get new users to stick around longer. It’s no secret that Twitter struggles with attracting and retaining new users, as this has been documented by recent studies showing a slow-growing base of active users and reports like this one showing that a significant amount of new users never tweet at all. Wired reports that with this new signup process Twitter is trying to overhaul the experience it delivers to new users, and steer them towards the people and topics they’re most interested in. There are reportedly two new signup processes being tested that will guide new users in the direction of people and things they care about. The first of the new signup processes is just for Android users, which uses Google account information to help populate a list of Twitter accounts to follow based on the user’s contacts.

Is Your Twitter Strategy Missing This One Essential Element? You’ve set your goals, identified your audience and you even have a robust measurement system in place. But you could be missing this one crucial component of a successful Twitter strategy. Often overlooked, this is the piece of the puzzle that is usually the last to fit into place – the one that makes you go “oh, yeah, it’s a horse!” I’m talking about competitor analysis. Without knowing what the competition is up to, you run the risk of making mistakes you could have easily avoided, or missing out on untapped markets and niches. You won’t know if what you’re doing has been done, and – if it has – you won’t know if it was a success. There is nothing wrong with learning from the competition. Since Twitter is an open network, it’s not only a great place to listen in on the competition for the sake of bettering your Twitter strategy, but it can be a goldmine of information about your competition in general. So how exactly do you incorporate competitor analysis into your Twitter strategy?
