        i believe that relates to amount of followers, my USE is quite automated, although I do try and spend a few minutes a day interacting with other users

    this makes my twitter use easier

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4664

    it turns your url bar above into a twitter console also...so you can just click and send a url to twitter and/or type messages, ive used a lot of diff twitter add-ons, this one has my current vote for least obtrusive and easily accessed, i use it way more frequently now, its inportant that all your tweets dont lead to just your hubpages, this way you can easily share articles and make more personal messgaes...the type of things these twitter freaks enjoy, lol

    i just brushed my teeth
    boy, i like cheerios, lol
    out of coffee, running to the store
    read my hub ____________--

    I refuse to tweet. I already have a myspace, facebook, youtube, and hub.

    I have really grown to love Hootsuite.

    There was a thread here several days ago, and I was using tweetdeck, but Hootsuite was recommended. Being that it's a web based app makes it easy to keep things synced between my laptop and my desktop. 

    Add multiple twitter accounts, facebook, linkedin, etc and you can even establish "editors" who you give access to post tweets and updates to certain accounts on your behalf.  I have a deals account on twitter, and there are three of us posting deals on it from Hootsuite.  You can post to all accounts, one account or any combination from a single interface.

    It also has the ability to keep a running search on certain keywords in your niche, so you can see what people are saying about it.

        Yeah, thanks UW for the rec. I think it was because of you I tried it. big_smile

        I also forgot to mention above that it will let you schedule tweets.

    i have tried and heard good things about hootsuite..I just never really enjoyed  twitter, so even clicking a bookmark tab to reach hootsuite is more energy than I would like to expend...its a highly recommended tool over at lifehacker though! an that editor feature seems rather handy..i could outsource my tweeting!

      I don't enjoy twitter much either, and I'm not very organized.  The app allows me to see what I want since I have different tabs within it.  For example, the deals tweets, I have many followers and follow everyone back.  I don't care to see anything in that account, so I just copy paste the tweet into the bar, check the account to post it to and I'm good. 
      Meanwhile, I have my personal twitter tab open receiving news and friends info, and my facebook news feed on a separate tab.  Helps an unorganized dolt like myself to use twitter more efficiently.

      My, it does sound like I'm trying to sell you on it doesn't it? wink I assure you when they start charging for it and open up an affiliate, I'll be the first to join, but I wasn't paid for this post! lol

    It depends what you call big, I have have over 3.5 thousand followers.
    An average of one follower per tweet and followers are growing.
    I have not been doing a lot lately, because I noticed politicians have been using my tweets. When I said, they just Don't get it on twitter, you saw what they did with that. You would think it was Nick Clegg and David Cameron came up with that punch line.

    Thanks for the tip on hootsuite smile

    I also find iGoogle extremely helpful, very simple.

    I am having trouble getting in to twitter, I can see the value, but it seems like a whole extra job for me to do on every post I make, time I could spend creating new articles.

    automate

    Bovine Currencyposted 7 years ago

    Hootsuite is good smile 

    What is the easiest way to automate, hootsuite or another app? 

    Can I automate by interval or do I have to schedule?

    I want alternate tweets at regular intervals, is this possible?

    thisisoliposted 7 years ago

    Just out of interest is there any application where I can have several accounts logged in concurrently with different tabs so I can just open the app, choose the twitter account/channel and update, that way I can have an account for each of my websites.

    @thisisoli, try Hootsuite wink It is capable of exactly what you want.

    @Bovine Currency, I believe there is something called Social Oomph (used to be Tweet Later) that does what you are wanting. If I recall, it's expensive.  There may be something else out there...

    I signed up for hootsuite, I don't get it....lol

    Do you have friends, fans, followers...whats the point?

    How do you get more followers on Twitter...I enjoy my hub followers but want to reach a larger audience.
