Do you use TrueTwit?  Are you a Twit for using TrueTwit?  If you use Twitter you will probably have heard of TrueTwit which calls itself a validation account. That must be harmless enough you think? All you want to do is protect yourself from unsavory followers.

Are you a Twit for using TrueTwit You might be thinking what is a Twit, is that a good thing? It could be that Twit may be just an English word - so I shall explain the definition of the word Twit Full Definition of TWIT :  a silly annoying person :  fool What exactly is [...]

Do you need more followers?

By |2017-02-08T01:19:12+01:00November 21st, 2013|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , |

DO YOU NEED MORE FOLLOWERS? People seem to be scrambling to get more followers, circles, likes, friends but the question is why do you need more followers.  Do you want a larger follower base on Twitter just to look important or to create engagement, interest in your website, brand awareness or sales? Businesses and professionals should not be asking how can I get more followers but how can I create a quality audience of a decent quantity, that is the trick.  Lots of fake followers are easy to get but are they the right followers? Its easy to spot people with fake accounts, and you don't want to be labeled as a faker, as this will diminish trust. FAKE ACCOUNTS If you want more followers just to boost your ego and pretend you are famous and actually get no engagement, from anyone you can go to one of these cheap tacky sites and pay for a load of bots or fake accounts to follow or like you. Buying followers on any network could get you banned however.  Or you can [...]

How Many Social Networks Are There?

By |2017-02-08T01:19:12+01:00November 8th, 2013|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , , , |

HOW MANY SOCIAL NETWORKS ARE THERE? People are often surprised at how many social networks there actually are, they often think of just Facebook and Twitter. Wait for it... there are literally hundreds of social networking sites, more than 500 in fact.  That’s without counting all of the Chinese and other countries networks such as China's Tencent who own WeChat with 200 million users. . However, out of the 500+ not all are of good quality or exactly thriving but they are available, and might just be the next big thing. Some social networking platforms are obviously more popular than others and many of them you may not class as a social network but if its aim is to be social and to share and connect with other users then it’s often called a social network, social media platform or social site, and you can even include mobile applications in this such as Path a social networking-enabled photo sharing and messaging service for mobile devices. Which network should I be on for my business? Don’t panic though; you do not have [...] – Fun twitter statistics or just spam?

Calculations are not actually real - they say that they are based on account age, followers, friends and tweets. The result is then tweeted to your followers. Edit, See update below - due to suspension and blocking by twitter its now appearing as not exactly accurate. Surprisingly my amount on hours on time were virtually the same as someone with half the amount of followers, and a 10th the amount of friends (ppl they follow back) as me, so I'm not sure how that works Is Spam Before you rush of to see what yours is, let me tell you a bit about it. First I checked on Twitter to see if anyone was talking about this application, and low and behold, all I saw were complaints about "how to stop the spam" So, yes, you got it, I wanted to try it out. First you have to let it into your twitter (auth) account, of course or how will it know how [...]

Fuss about Mentions on Twitter? #wewantoldtwitterback

By |2017-02-08T01:19:33+01:00March 27th, 2013|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , |

Have you seen the hashtag #wewantoldtwitterback and wondered what was going on, well yes, so did I. I saw this being posted out...... There is a message from Twitter uses that states that Twitter has changed it's policy so that now you will only see mentions, retweets and favourites from people you follow - This means that celebrities will never see your tweets to them unless they follow you.  I've seen nothing official from Twitter on this - have you? ..  However I have tested it - and it is correct. I can see it being a problem for some people. We believe this to be a glitch though, or a bug of some sort in the iPhone application  - we have had it before where your mentions weren't appearing at all, and if you deleted the application and re installed it, mentions reappeared. What is going on with @Mentions on Twitter People seem to think that there are new twitter rules for the iPhone app. When you @mention someone that is using the Twitter iPhone application they will not see it in their Twitter stream or feed unless they [...]

How to easily clean up your Twitter stream

By |2017-02-08T01:19:48+01:00November 18th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , |

Often people ask how best to safely clean up your twitter stream or how to manage your twitter followers. On twitter I like to follow back as many people as I can - as I personally don't feel its fair to expect someone to follow you if you aren't reciprocating, its like a two way street.  Also I do not like to unfollow people unless its for a good reason. For instance, they joined twitter but then decided it wasn't for them and stopped tweeting, or you realise that the person is actually a bot as they never @ mention anyone, and just throw out random tweets. Twit Cleaner  This is where Twit Cleaner comes in very useful - it will tell  you who these people are and allow you to choose who you want to unfollow, it does not twitter unfollow everyone automatically.  Twit Cleaner is free and very comprehensive. You first need to log into Twit Cleaner and allow it Auth with your twitter account, so that it can go through your followers. To do this click - Scan [...]
