Kurrently

Kurrently | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
I really like this tool. It's simple, no need to sign up, and it's great for checking up on key words and phrases. Looks like Google. Just type the details in the search box and it runs a real-time search across Twitter and Facebook. Handy for journalists wanting a simple quick search of social media conversations.

Thanks that sounds good - I was wondering whether Flipboard planned on doing something like that. Another thing that would be great (long-term) is if they "sort" the material into pages of related stuff - I have very disparate groups of friends, some in Afghanistan, some in Egypt, some in media in the US, some who are hikers in Georgia... so it would be nice to have them in "sections" someday
helpingmedia's comment, March 26, 2011 12:01 PM
Yes, I have acheived that by creating Twitter lists of followers in categories - such as Caucasus, Africa, etc. Then, in Flipboard, I create a page of that Twitter list so that I only get tweets from that specific group of people. David
ChattNow.org's comment, March 26, 2011 12:26 PM
right - I haven't gotten that organized yet with Twitter - plus, can't see any way in Flipboard to use multiple Twitter accounts, which is a big drawback since I manage five!<br/><br/>topically it's really FB that I need to manage --- and I also admin three FB pages, so.....

Tweetcloud

Tweetcloud | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Another way for journalists to generate word clouds based on what they have said (your Twitter user name) or on topics. Then click on the resulting words to display a list of relevant tweets.

Of course you can then click on the name and try to connect with any interesting contacts or just join the conversations as part of the news gathering and news dissemination process.

Storify

Storify | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Great curation and news production tool enabling journalists to gather assets from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, the web, RSS, blogs and Storify itself and then to create asset-rich stories which, when published, are virally disseminated.

I am using this a lot in training courses with great results. What's also useful is that you can embed the stories you create in most blogs by just copy and pasting the script across.

Here is my Storify http://storify.com/helpingmedia and here is how one story, created with Storify, has been imported into my Joomla site http://bit.ly/eQr9X3.

A very useful iftt macro is to link up twitter and gmail, so if you see a link you like, you can use the action of making it a 'favourite' to email you the tweet. Very simple, very elegant.

TwitterSheep

TwitterSheep | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
More than a bit of fun, this nifty tool 'herds' your followers, checks out what they tweet about and then creates a word cloud of the key words.

Click on a word and then click on 'see your flock' to get to know more about your Twitter network. Great potential for contacts building and news gathering.
