If you liked my beginners guide to newtwitter  and it helped you, this may help too. What is an RT ?  Retweets were actually started by users of twitter as a way of sharing content they have read and enjoyed to their own followers and at the same time giving recognition to the original tweeter.   Sharing content after all is a HUGE part of twitter, to me its what twitter is all about, I've read some amazing articles by some brilliant people. How to RT You may have seen an RT  in this form on twitter - RT @username message here  This is sometimes called a  manual RT - which was how it all started.  If this is done manually  the person that Tweeted the message in the first place @username will see it in their timeline, exactly as you typed it, and so will your followers. How to do a manual RT - Copy the content of the tweet  hit replytype RT before the @usernamepaste the copied text after the @usernameyou may or may not want to put an additional message ie [...]

FOUND – Missing Quote Button on Updated iOS Twitter App.

By |2017-02-08T01:20:53+01:00April 3rd, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

I've seen numerous tweets asking where the Quote button had gone on the updated Twitter for  iPhone App, version 3.3.3 - so I downloaded the update to find out. Twitter have placed it with the Retweet button!   Which is the one with the two arrows, when you click it you now see this. Aparently it was already like this on the iPad? Also on the update, I found that Twitter has finally got rid of that useless, space taking, black strip they called the  QuickBar.  Which used to flash up twitter trends and Ads it was very annoying.   Did they listen to our complaints about it, or did no-one ever click it and they realised that it was an eye sore? Twitter actually say on the amusing named Post on the Twitter blog "So a bar walks into an app"  that - if we learn it doesn’t improve the user experience or serve our mission, we’ll remove that feature. As yet I do not see anything else that has changed, please let me know if I missed something. I'm [...]

Bannatyne twitter shames Suzie Warner for review now missing.

By |2017-02-08T01:21:12+01:00December 11th, 2010|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  Looking for Suzie Warners original review that caused the Bannatyne backlash? You won't find it, it was removed, as quoted by entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne OBE today - What you will see if you do a search for the review on Swgillingham, Charlton House is a Google entry here, that is still floating around Google, but click on it and it is gone. I admit this morning I was very disappointed to read that Duncan Bannatyne (who I value reading his tweets on Twitter) had over reacted in my opinion and retweeted Suzie Warners personal details (phone number and email); causing her to receive hate mail and texts.  Why?  Not because I think she was right "lying" on the review about the hotel because she didn't get her own way but because I believe that using twitter and his influence like that is wrong, it actually makes me sad.  Mostly because of his influence, Duncan Bannatyne has 250,000 followers who will do whatever he says - some of which shared and retweeted this information.  Not that we can even comment on what she said, as its [...]

Facebook Free Makeup Scam

Another Facebook post?  Anyone would think I like Facebook. Or actually used it :) Anyway ...... I might be a bit late in posting this but its only just starting appearing in my Facebook feed, so it might help someone. Scam on Facebook We've all seen them before but we are still clicking on them or they wouldn't keep posting.  Stop it. If one of your friends sends you a link to get Free makeup, please don't click it, and certainly don't enter your Facebook details or log in with Facebook. Never click anything like this, you don't get anything for nothing as the old saying goes. Just as there are no free ipads or free 60" flat screen TV's - you didn't believe that did you? So don't believe this. There are various different links for the  free make-up scams, and they are mostly like this Just visit with varying different numbers.  The trap is that it looks like your friend has received her free makeup but in truth its just posting messages from her/his account.  Is this a Scam you ask, well it is actually nothing sinister like a [...]
