How To Create A Private Chat Room On Twitter

It’s not surprising that so many people don’t know about this feature. I first wrote about it back in January 2015–here. What this does is pulls you and 19 other people (either that or you and 20 other people) out of the main stream and puts you in a giant Direct Message. Why bother? Privacy…or […]

You want to clear your account from dead weight but you’re not sure how many accounts you can unfollow at one time. Well, I can tell you there’s a lot of wrong […]

What Twitter Data Tells Us About That Channel

“I don’t get it. What is this?” That’s what  I said in early 2007 when I started my first Twitter account. It wasn’t until later, mid-2008 that it clicked for me.

Buy Now Buttons Going Wide on YouTube and Twitter

But what’s it going to cost? It seems anything the mega-sized social media giants can do to separate the enterprise retailers from the mom and pop happens. That said both Twitter and YouTube have announced (and confirmed) their intents to let the “buy now” button out into the wild. Since there isn’t a lot of […]

I’m not 100% sure I like the idea but I do like the idea. Me make many sense – I know. I remember when I first came to Twitter. Much like many others I said, “what’s the deal”? Soon I found out how to become very creative and never fell to using ur, H8, or […]

Twitter Almost Replicates AOL Chat Rooms from 1988!

There are two things missing from the Internet and have been since what we originally new as “the web” became what everyone thinks of as “the Internet”.

Twitter Spam or Good Use of Prospecting Time?

I used to be a really big fan of Twitter as an engagement platform.

Tool For Identifying Fake Twitter Followers?

Okay, in fairness it says it’s the Beta application. This tool could help trim down on the number of fake Twitter followers you have.
