How Do Tweeters Market Their Presence on Twitter?

TwitterImage via Wikipedia

How do Tweeters market their presence on Twitter? First, whenever the opportunity arises always promote your Twitter account; on websites, blogs and other forms of Web presence, always display a follow me link to your Twitter account.

There are all kinds of buttons, blidgets and widgets freely available for use on your website or blog that will help you promote your Twitter account to other Twitterers. Adding "Tweet This" and "Retweet" buttons is another effective way to promote your presence on Twitter.

Have you ever checked out the "Goodies" on There are special treats for those that scroll to the bottom of the page. The Twitter Goodies page is your pathway to Twitter Widgets and Twitter Applications.

There were three categories of Twitter Goodies; widgets and applications for My Website, Facebook and MySpace. Before hooking up a widget or an application for connectivity to another site, make things easier by logging on at both sites before starting the installation.

We installed the Twitter for Facebook application, which was surprisingly simple to install and use. You know what we mean if you have experience configuring Facebook widgets and applications; things either work right the first time, or you end up treading through one help screen after another only to find out that you failed to read the instructions thoroughly enough in the first place.

Twitter applications let you send and receive Twitter updates, and they come in all kinds of attractive styles to dress up your website or blog. We did notice that on their applications page, Twitter provides the following disclaimer: "These applications were built by third-parties, not Twitter, Inc. Twitter does not provide support for these applications."

Not too worry, most of these offerings have been around awhile and work fine on most sites. As a source for more Twitter applications, Twitter suggests Twitter Fan Wiki "hosted and secured" by PBWorks.

Takeaway - The Twitter Fan Wiki site offers links to even more Twitter applications; Twitter applications for advertising, analytics, browser plugins and extensions, directories, creating drawings, entertainment, games . . . Hey, check it out -- Twitter Fan Wiki applications.

Twitter Still in ICU

Tuesday, October 20, 2009, it's obvious to many Twitterers that still hasn't fully recovered from their Sunday, October 18, 2009, outage.

Status, Twitter. “Responding to network connectivity problems.” Twitter, 18 Oct. 2009. Web. 20 Oct. 2009. < >.

"Twitter is over capacity . . . Too many tweets! [We are Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.]" (Twitter error message). Combined with the negative impact brought about by Twitter's recent war against the barrage of recurring tweets launched by third-party Twitter apps like SocialOomph (formerly TweetLater), Twit Robot and others, Twitter's network connectivity problems have devastated Twitter Centric Marketing campaigns the world over.

Twitter takes the "Oomph" out of SocialOomph


SocialOomph (formerly TweetLater) announced in their blog Monday, October 12, 2009, that Twitter has informed them that recurring tweets are in violation of the Twitter Terms of Service. The SocialOomph blog post includes the following excerpt from what Twitter sent to SocialOomph:

"Recurring Tweets are a violation no matter how they are done, including whether or not someone pays you to have a special privilege. We don’t want to see any duplicate tweets whatsoever. They pollute Twitter, and tools shouldn’t be given to enable people to break the rules. Spinnable text seems to just be a way to bypass the rules against duplicate updates and essentially provides the same problems."

—SocialOomph Blog. "Recurring Tweets On Twitter Accounts Have Been Discontinued." SocialOomph, 12 Oct. 2009. Web. 12 Oct. 2009. < >.

Twitter Duplicate Text

Beginning Thursday, October 15, SocialOomph is placing all recurring tweets on pause, apparently giving their customers a chance to get copies of their recurring tweets. From that point, no further recurring tweets can be setup. Unfortunately, SocialOomph Professional lacks an export feature for its recurring tweets.

There are many solutions available to aid you with your Twitter-based Social Media Marketing (SMM) campaigns. In fact, to avoid problems due to unforeseen changes, it is best to use more than one method.

Three well-known, affordable solutions are Tweet Adder, Tweet Riches and Twitter Bot Friend Adder. Each package offers the same basic features: auto follow, auto follow back, auto unfollow, auto update, auto reply, auto DM, schedule messages, import followers, follow by keyword, keyword trends, statistics, multiple accounts, proxy usage and more.
