How to get your mentions and retweet view back after Twitter deletes it

How to get your mentions and retweet view back after Twitter deletes it | Best of Tweet Smarter | Scoop.it
Like it or not, Twitter is deleting the @mentions tab for all users on Twitter.com. The retweet view is also going away. (The mentions view showed you all tweets that had your username in them.) Fortunately, you can still have a bookmark or saved Twitter search that shows you your retweets, or the old list of your mentions (see “What can you do…” below).

How to say thank you on Twitter

How to say thank you on Twitter | Best of Tweet Smarter | Scoop.it
Today I found a really interesting post by Angie Schottmuller on Jay Baer’s site, Convinceandconvert.com. The article is called 7 ways to thank someone for a retweet. Angie makes a lot of really good points and a lot of excellent recommendations, but I see things a bit differently, so I thought I would tack on my perspective. Here’s hoping you join the conversation!
Are you being genuine or are you being a braggart?
It’s very easy to identify things that rub you the wrong way in Twitter world. That’s why you see so many posts like, “Calling BS on this” or “Why I hate people who…xyz”. Once you do that though, it’s sometimes hard to tell if you are actually executing an activity that drives someone else nuts.

Official word from Twitter: How to keep your account safe

You should know that attempts to directly “hack" Twitter are extremely rare. The majority of account compromises actually happen as a direct result of "phishing" schemes. Phishing is a way to target users by sending them fraudulent messages meant to trick them into sharing their passwords. This can come in the form of fake emails, attachments or log-in screens that are designed to look similar to your Twitter sign-in page.
You should know that Twitter never sends emails that request your password or asks you to download attachments. Similarly, you will never have to enter your Twitter password into anything other than a Twitter log-in screen on the web and applications that you trust. You can always make sure that you’re on the real Twitter site by checking the address bar in your browser--make sure the domain is Twitter.com. There is lot more about protecting yourself from phishing attempts on our support pages.
Here are some additional important recommendations from our Safety Center:

Too many people on Twitter just repeat rumors. One amazing example: | Best of Tweet Smarter | Scoop.it
Though we’ve only had it for a few years, it’s already hard to picture a world without Twitter. The simple social network is the Information Age equivalent of crack, allowing us instant access to thoughts and facts from millions of people all across the world. Almost every piece of news breaks on Twitter first. Sometimes, during particularly embarrassing lapses of judgement, news breaks because of Twitter. This one simple website gives us an unprecedented level of access to the world.
There’s just one problem with Twitter: People are stupid.
This story starts Monday, the day the NFL lockout ended. The Internet was buzzing with rumors at 10pm, the time when undrafted college players could begin officially negotiating with NFL teams. On a message board I frequent, one user made a joke about linebacker Mark Herzlich joining the Baltimore Ravens. Another user believed it and posted it on Twitter, where somebody who calls himself @NFLDraftInsider picked it up and spread it to his thousands of followers.

10 Things I Like Seeing in My Twitter Stream

10 Things I Like Seeing in My Twitter Stream | Best of Tweet Smarter | Scoop.it
An article on HuffingtonPost.com today brought my attention back to all the reasons I still love Twitter, despite the people who use it to broadcast information that I don’t need or care about. Some Twitter users might not like it when you tweet about certain things, but I do. Things like…
Good mornings. Twitter is a social platform, a virtual space to connect with like-minded/spirited people. So I love it when others reach out on Twitter. Offline, I smile and say “good morning” or “hi” to people I don’t know. Why would I be different online? Simple exchanges like that are reminders of our humanity and that we are not alone in the world. Some people will say good morning back — and just like that, I find my peeps! These are the people that I feel a connection with … and follow.
So when I’m looking for advice, Information, recommendations on products and services, new books or articles to read, or people to collaborate with, I turn to the people I’ve already connected with, like, and trust. (Oh yeah, I met my business partner on Twitter. We first started exchanging tweets a year ago.)

How To Run A Fake Twitter Feed | Fast Company

How To Run A Fake Twitter Feed | Fast Company | Best of Tweet Smarter | Scoop.it
Twitter is chock-full of humorous fake feeds with massive cult followings. The microblogging service's 140-character message limit has turned out to be the perfect forum for one-line zingers, as the individuals behind @fakeapstylebook, @bpglobalpr and @mayoremanuel all discovered for themselves. But running a popular fake Twitter feed requires careful juggling of real-life concerns with the need to constantly evaluate the shifting moods of social media users. We spoke with the man behind one popular fake Twitter feed, the 11,000-follower @osamainhell--who tweets exclusively in the voice of the dead terrorist--and got him to shed his secret identity and offer some tips on running a satirical Twitter feed.
