I hope this is question relevant here. I just joined it and still learning things there. However there are few things not yet clear to me yet.
1. I see that updates are submitted using a number of services like twitterfeed, tagfoot, HootSuite etc. To submit my Hub updates am I supposed to join anyone of them or the option given to us after the completion of any Hub will do the job?
2. Now that I have joined the Twitter I want to update my already published Hub URLs there. How do I do that? Join some services mentioned above in point 1? Or I can just send an update message to all twitter users with my Hub URL it? Or do we have any tools here in Hubpages to submit my already published Hub to Twitter?
3. Can I send updates about the same Hubpage (same URL) more then once? Like we do in Digg, we can send the shouts any number of times but shouting same item too much is very harmful on Digg, is it same here one Twitter too
You mentioned Tagfoot. Whilst it is possible to make all items submitted to Tagfoot appear on Twitter it is important to note that the link upon Twitter is to the Tagfoot page not your hub. However, there is the option of having your Adsense ID appearing on your own personal tagfoot pages, and so it is possible to earn money from this (the system runs on a revenue share basis rather like Hubpages - 50/50 between publisher and Tagfoot although in the case of referrals the Tagfoot share is split between referrer and Tagfoot. I believe Tagfoot also has the added bonus of creating backlinks to your hub, making it appear higher in teh search engine rankings.
I think that more than twice and you run the risk of annoying your audience. And when I say twice, I mean leave a really big gap between the repeat tweets.
Ok can you also you also tell me what do we actually mean by tweeting. Is it sending (updating) messages to all your followers via that text box "What are you doing?" or is it only when you include a link (probably link to your Hub) in that message that it will be considered tweeting? Please help I am very new
All you need to do is post the URL to the Twitter website. If you update, say I've updated my article and give the link. Those tools are just a way of using Twitter. You send updates to those who are following you...not the entire system on Twitter.
So you mean to say that I can send updates (to those following me) my writing in that space "What are you doing?" and can place URL to my Hub there. So like this I can send updates about all my Hubs. Did I understood correctly?
What about 3rd question? Any input there?
Does anyone ever forget to log into twitter for days at a time? I know I can easily forget about it once and awhile.
I have just joined.... will be better qualified to answer this after sometimes
At first it was fun, but I have had it for a few months now, so every few days I make an effort to look at it, but not so much.
Actually I have heard a big hoopla about it here and also on Digg and it made me think that joining twitter is very important if you wanna push some non-hubpages traffic to your hubs. Is it actually worth it's hype?
I think it is. Twitter is my second largest source of traffic to my articles.
Be selective about what you twitter and digg though. Hubpages has been banned from several of the social networking sites because of overzealous promotion. Also, it never hurts to branch off and join a few other message boards, where you can share your links. There are many ning groups devoted to a variety of topics, and also google groups.
I use twitter to market my articles every day. I started my tweeting 2 weeks ago and had a following of 50. I just checked and now have a following of over 1100. If your goal is to just market articles then you need a lot of followers because as darkside said above, multiple tweets will annoy some followers. That said, you may lose a few followers a day but you will also gain dozens more each day. I use the apps I put in this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Twitter-Followers and I get tons of traffic from twitter and surprisingly a lot of click throughs on my adsense.
If you are using twitter to build social bonds then don't market your articles to your followers unless they ask you for them.
Twitter can be useful and I now have over 21,000 followers. Be careful of auto following apps i hear they can help get you banned.

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you...
