Don't Miss The Important Tweets - Filter Twitter With Tweetdig | Twitter Stats, Strategies + Tips | Scoop.it

If you follow a large amount of people on Twitter it can be hard to keep tabs of Tweets on important topics. Tweetdig lets you filter Twitter by topic, user and more... like me you follow a massive amount of people on Twitter it can be hard to keep tabs of Tweets on topics that you don’t want to miss.  Twitter itself offers us lots of tools to help us mange our feeds, lists have become indispensable for me as have saved advanced searches.  I use Hootsuite to manage my Twitter feed and this also gives me lots of  options including search and list columns. 

 

Tweetdig however does do something a little different with your searches, giving you an easy way to stay on top of news stories, users and more.  By creating filters you can easily keep up with the latest news as it breaks.  For example this morning there is lots of talk about the Superbowl last night both from a sports perspective and an advertising/social media perspective.  If I want to keep tabs on this I can easily create a filter within Tweetdig....

9 Uses of Twitter for B2B Vendors

9 Uses of Twitter for B2B Vendors | Twitter Stats, Strategies + Tips | Scoop.it

... The world’s most popular microblogging platform is also a valuable tool for B2B companies. Here are nine ways B2B firms can benefit from being active on Twitter:


1. Communicate with customers: whether by providing support, answering queries, sharing content or communicating reminder messages, Twitter is a quick and easy method for dialog that doesn’t need to be kept private.


2. Reach out to prospects: use tools like Twellow, Wefollow, Geofollow and your own CRM system to find prospective customers on Twitter and share thought-leadership content with them to provide value and set your company apart from competitors.


3. Answer questions: demonstrating your knowledge—rather than just promoting your products or services—is a much better way to build trust, and a following on Twitter.


4. Ask questions: Twitter is a great forum for getting hard-to-find factual answers (related to the expertise of your followers of course) as well as gauging sentiment on key issues.


5. Share interesting content: the key to building a (relevant) following on Twitter is to share content that is truly interesting to others, not just your marketing pages and case studies. Share blog posts, reports, resources like industry-specific glossaries and infographics. Share a mix of your own content and relevant content from other (non-competitive) sources like industry trade publications.


6. Promote others: follow the bloggers who write about your industry. Retweet their posts. Recommend them to others through #followfriday tweets. This builds relationships, and is far more likely to get them to some day write something nice about your company than is mass-emailing your press releases.


7. Increase brand awareness: Twitter isn’t great for direct response in the B2B world. It is, however, a potentially powerful tool for building your brand and enhancing your company’s image as experts in your marketplace. Make the most of your tweets; a company’s Twitter account is often one of the top four results on a Google search for the company name.


8. Promote events: going to a trade show? Speaking at an industry forum? Attending a networking event? Twitter is a great place to showcase these and make arrangements to meet some of your followers in person.


9. Gain competitive intelligence: Twitter is great for keeping tabs on competitors, particularly by looking at what others are saying about them. What kinds of questions do people ask? What kinds of problems do they report? How does the competitor respond?

25 Twitter Accounts to Make You Laugh

25 Twitter Accounts to Make You Laugh | Twitter Stats, Strategies + Tips | Scoop.it
Looking for funny Twitter accounts? These users can make you laugh in 140 characters or less.


Breaking news and small business chatter aside, Twitter is like a playground. Various styles of “comedy” exist within the platform — I use the term loosely because you won’t always find the conventional stand-up or one-liner format many of us are used to.


Twitter has created a new genre of comedy that most of us can’t quite describe. It’s like a combination of satire, current events, pop culture and stream of consciousness, all packaged into 140 characters or less.


Whether you like parody, traditional comedians, sports commentary, girly rants or unconventionally weird Internet humor, there’s likely at least one account in the gallery here that will make you laugh.

10 tips for B2B Twitter success

10 tips for B2B Twitter success | Twitter Stats, Strategies + Tips | Scoop.it

Over the past several years, a growing number of brands have decided to invest significant amounts of time and money in Twitter. One of the most popular social networks in the world, Twitter has become, for many of those brands, a key component of a social media strategy.


For B2B companies, many of which keep an eye on what their B2C counterparts are doing, Twitter has also been a target for investment in social media.


But how can B2B companies capitalize on the Twitter opportunity? Here are 10 tips:


1. Follow the money

Twitter is sort of like a party: signing up is like RSVPing, but to take part in the fun, you actually have to show up. That means following the right people so that you can find the conversations that are relevant to your business and industry.


2. Spread the love

If you're only planning to use Twitter to promote your own content, you're doing it wrong. To gain credibility, try to maximize how useful the content that you post is to those who follow you. In most cases, that means sharing interesting links to articles, blog posts and other websites that aren't directly associated with your company.


3. Rock the boat

You don't have to be conventional to succeed on Twitter, and that's true for B2B businesses as well. You undoubtedly have opinions, some of which may be counterintuitive and controversial, but present them in a thoughtful, articulate manner and it can make your Twitter feed a lot more interesting.


4. Put a human face on your presence

Marketers throw around phrases like 'brand engagement' but the reality is that most of us don't want to interact with a brand; we want to interact with real people.


5. Listen

There is no shortage of reputation monitoring solutions that companies can use to listen in on what people are saying about them. The reality for all but the biggest brands, however, is that very few individuals are talking about you a daily basis.


6. Sell, sell, sell -- but do it well

Social networks like Twitter aren't an invitation to spam, but don't shy away from legitimate opportunities to identify potential customers and introduce them to your offering. If your company sells enterprise document management software, for instance, and you notice a tweet from somebody asking about enterprise document management software (because you're listening of course), don't hesitate to introduce yourself and invite a dialog. Just be sure to leave the hard sell at home.


7. Don't buy followers

Bigger isn't always better in the world of social media. Sure, it's nice to have a big number for your follower count, but for B2B businesses in particular, quality almost always trumps quantity, so skip the temptation to build a faux audience and go for the real thing.


8. Dress to impress

Your Twitter profile is an extension of your brand online, so treat it as you would your own website. Even though you have far less flexibility, take advantage of your ability to customize your profile by, at a minimum, adding a quality profile photo and well-designed background.


9. Be careful about who you put in charge

For many businesses, getting started with social media can be an intimidating undertaking. Sometimes, that makes relying on an employee -- often a younger employee who seems to be well-versed in social media -- an attractive proposition. But be careful: an employee's prolific personal use of social media doesn't necessarily mean that he or she will be able to manage your company's Twitter account appropriately.


10. Think twice before throwing in the towel

If you've made the decision to join Twitter, make sure you're in it to win it. Setting up shop on Twitter only to leave a few months later isn't a good strategy. This is particularly true if your Twitter account rises in the SERPs and becomes a highly-visible part of your search profile.

Twitter is unique in the social media sphere as being one of the few platforms where brands can engage with their ever-growing audience and have them reply back in a matter of seconds – many with the expectation that the brand itself will return the reply favor and follow their own personal account. Leading the pack with following back are brands like Coca-Cola, Sephora, and even President Barack Obama. But for the companies that are choosier with who they decide to follow on Twitter, or even tweet back at, here are some tips on how to make that interaction a little bit easier.

In the beginning of the year, Twitter announced that it will follow government laws first. Later it continued on introduce some existing features for its users on web as well as mobile.
