Having SM apps is all well and good but how we behave in our SM circles is what concerns me as a pedagogue! This blog provides not only the affordances of the 'Twitter' apps but their potential for teaching and learning which can be explored from this site.  I would still ask more questions before use with students - but that's me!

Want To Be A Great Tweeter? Create 3 Kinds of Tweets

Want To Be A Great Tweeter? Create 3 Kinds of Tweets | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Working with great cancer research centers on our new crowdfunding cancer research website (http://www.CureCancerStarter.org) is helping me slow down long enough to think about what works on social media. Nothing like having to explain things you do in automatic-mode to help examine marketing process.

After creating more than 20,000 Tweets I've noticed the kinds of tweets that are more likely to be shared and they fall into three groups:

* What's Happening NOW.
* Action verb tweets.

* Q&A Tweets.

NOW
The web only has one TIME and it is always NOW. Twitter is like the radio of the web. If something cool is happening NOW such as a Google Hangout or a revolution in Egypt Tweet it.

Action Verbs
See, Watch, Share, Learn and Listen are action verbs. Action verbs at the beginning of a Tweet are like an alert. Sometimes I use all CAPS for emphasis (but that can wear thin fast). You can also make a word that isn't typically an "action" verb have action-like qualities. AND Then He Tweeted This... makes AND an "action verb" because something seems to have just happened.

Q&A
Questions are my favorite ways to tweet. Sometimes I use Q: What Is The Question of the Day A: Answer (asking and answer my own question). Answering my questions is helpful but not a conversation. I use this tactic to make specific points that benefit from sounding like a question and answer when they really aren't. This format makes lecturing sound less like lecturing (lol).

This morning I Tweeted:

gel electrophoresis? @RoswellPark Dr. Fenstermaker Explains [VIDEO]

Love this kind of question where an ACTION (visiting the link) provides the answer especially when the answer can be attained by watching a video. I also like being VERY clear about visual support so put [VIDEO} in all caps and off by itself. Do the same treatment with Infographics, Study and Report.

Questions are great ways to encourage engagement and feedback too. I ask TWITTER questions about vendors, software and ideas all the time. By "asking Twitter" I mean that I pose the question with a hashtag and see who responds.

Why Twitter is a Terrific Way to Market Your Business and Services

Why Twitter is a Terrific Way to Market Your Business and Services | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

It’s not surprising that The New York Times called twitter “the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet.” Twitter has quickly become a part of our everyday media and social culture. So how did we get to this point? Twitter began in August 2006 as a micro-blogging site with the sole purpose of answering (in 140 characters or less) this question: What are you doing right now?

 

In 2006 and 2007, many people were posting items, called “tweets” such as “going to Starbucks” watching television right now” or “looking forward to buying the new Mac laptop tomorrow”. But initially, many users were turned off because there wasn’t a clear explanation on the site about how to actually use it.

Since 2007, though, Twitter has become a valuable tool for entrepreneurs, artists, media personalities, reporters, and marketers.

 

In this article, you’ll learn why Twitter is a terrific way to market your business and services. You’ll also learn about building strategic alliances, attracting raving and dedicated fans, the finer points of Twitter culture and much more.

News Discovery Tools: Get The Fastest Spreading News with NewsWhip

News Discovery Tools: Get The Fastest Spreading News with NewsWhip | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: NewsWhip is a news discovery service that specializes in bringing you only the fastest spreading news stories on Facebook and Twitter.

 

The news are organized by main geographical areas and by broad key topics, from which you can select your preferred ones.

 

From the official site: "NewsWhip's technology tracks all the news published by about 5,000 English-language sources –about 60,000 news stories each day. It gathers social data for each story – how many shares, likes, tweets and comments it has – at repeated intervals, building a live picture of how popular it is, right now. With this information, it calculates a social speed at which each story is travelling. The process is unique, new, and patent pending."

 

My comments: If you are looking to pick up "trendy" stories across the board or on specific general interest areas NewsWhip may be a great companion. Disappointing if you are looking for quality, in-depth stories in specific niche areas.

Also of interest two tools the company is offering to web publishers:

1) Spike - makes it easy to catch stries that are starting to trend

2) Social Amplifier - exposes your most valuable articles by leveraging your readers preferences via Facebook and Twitter

How Will MIT's Reverse Engineering Of Twitter's Trending Topics Algorithm Impact Twitter's Advertising Business? - Forbes | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Why algorithms aren't the key to Twitter campaigns

 

SUMMARY: MIT researchers are reverse-engineering the algorithms used to determine personalized trending topics on Twitter -- but that won't necessarily give brands an easy way to game the system, experts say. Predicting what will trend and generating and effectively promoting trend-worthy content are very different skills, explains Eric Dykstra. "If a brand really wants everyone to see their hash tag or trending topic, they're still going to pay for a promoted trend," he writes.

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:35 PM

This article makes a lot of valid points that can be used in every day on twitter, and in life in general! First impressions are as important on Twitter, and I think that is something many young professionals may overlook in interview and online. Also, I think many people follow their friends on Twitter, even if they are unrelated to their professional career, which can crowd their feed with social related things, rather than tweets related to education. This article also shows that it is possible to use your tweets outside of the Twitter realm, just by presenting your tweets on other social media sites! This seems to be a great checklist for the young professional, helping us utilize a site we most likely already frequent, but enabling us to turn it into a career-helping venue.

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Slices is a news discovery app that allows you to find the news that interest you by "slicing" the Twitter timeline into topic-specific categories, making it much easier to find what you are looking for.

 

From Pandodaily official review: "Slices offers 21 searchable categories – humor, technology, sports, and so on – that lead you to people and lists to follow. Included among those top-level categories is the “Live Events” option, which allows you to select an event – a football match, say, or a TV show – and follow Tweets from a curated list.

Also of note: "...it synchronizes between mobile devices and the Slices website (slices.me), which means it knows which Tweets you’ve already read, no matter where you access it from.

 

...The “Timeline Slicer” also outdoes Twitter’s Lists as a way to organize the people you follow into specific categories. They’re easier to set up and easier to access, ..."

 

Source: Pandodaily

 

Slices is available on iOS, Android and the Web.

Top Tech Trends & People of 2012 (Focus on New Media Communications)

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

 

P.S. There are some typos and honest mistakes in this textbook, but I am comfortable sharing it as is. I am excited to redesign it for next semester.
