Take a few minutes to fine tune your Twitter experience.Tailored suggestions Whether you’re new to Twitter and need to find… Read More


I was sad to see Tweetdeck’s Air app discontinued. It’s been the go-to Twitter client I recommend to our clients since the app launched. Easy to use and lightweight, pretty much anybody could master it in a few minutes, and with a few minutes more they could add on some spiffy bells and whistles and… Read More


Twitter launched new layouts for our Twitter profiles on 9/18. A lot of people haven’t done much with them yet, but it was fun to watch them launch this new feature on the Today Show and see what people are starting to do with them. @Jfouts What’s new with Twitter profiles Now you’ve got a… Read More

I’m always on the hunt for a new Twitter app, or a new iPhone app and I download and test a ton of ’em and share them with my friends and clients. But I don’t review very many. This one is different. It’s called “TweetAgora” and it can do a lot of the things I… Read More


I don’t think it’s a good idea to post your Twitter stream to your Facebook page automatically. It confuses people who don’t tweet and a lot of the time it just doesn’t make sense to see your tweets out of contest. “Thanks for that Joe!” is confusing if not annoying unless someone is sufficiently interested… Read More
