Twitter ….. again

Filed under: Ideas, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 14:40

I signed up for Twitter three years ago.   Mostly to see what others were up to as I don’t think every second of my rather normal boring life is worth anyone’s time to constantly read about.  I can’t help think of the movie “The Truman Show” where your entire life is broadcast.    However I do plan to do more tweeting.   I also would like to follow more people.  I don’t know if Twitter has a desktop app, but I did put it on my phone and pad.  So my screen name is the same as here.   Scottiestoybox.   Lets see how long I stay on this time.   Last time I was on it only long enough to tweet two tweets.   🙂

Oh and a side note, I took yesterday off.  It will take me a few days to catch up.  Hugs

  1. I’ve never really gotten the point of Twitter. My blog posts there automatically, but I never think about it!

    • I tried it and gave up the first time, but one of the news people I like, comedian Bill Maher, is on twitter so I went back on. Hugs

        6. Auto-Tweet New Blog Posts
        Many website owners wish to automatically connect their blogs and their Twitter streams. One popular way to do this is to set up automatic tweets whenever you publish a new blog post.

        Before I go into how we can set this up, let me address one common concern with auto-tweeting. Many see automated tweeting as impersonal and lacking authenticity, akin to spam. Most Twitter users are turned off by Twitter accounts that lack a human touch. That simply means you’ll see less engagement, lower following counts and reduced trust from your audience.

        But keeping a healthy balance between automated tweeting and authentic, manually created tweets can be an effective strategy. After all, many longtime users of RSS have increasingly turned to Twitter to stay updated on their favorite blogs. Automatic tweeting of your blog posts can easily keep your regular followers informed of your latest activity.

        Twitter Feed allows you to set up automatic tweets for your blog posts. After creating your free account with TwitterFeed, you can enter the RSS feed for your blog to trigger new tweets every time a new post is published.

        Finding your RSS feed for your WordPress blog is easy. Just add “/feed” to the end of your blog or website URL. For example, Mashable’s RSS feed URL would be http://mashable.com/feed.

        Integrating Twitter with WordPress can help drive engagement for your company or organization. Remember, the key is to produce valuable, compelling content — both on Twitter and on your blog — then leverage the tips provided here to help spread that content, increase your audience and tie your Twitter and website presence together.

      • Um…I’m not exactly sure? I think WP and Twitter have some sort of thing, agreement, what have you. I’m mostly silly at this sort of thing, Twitter has been next to useless for me!
