It seems that people are interested in freelancing or earning extra money and in twitter. Since I wrote a number of articles about twitter before anyone was visiting this site (and because I’m lazy), I’m re-posting what I consider to be my 5 best articles about Twitter.
They are on a variety of topics and aren’t exactly the how to get started with twitter types of articles but I think you will still find them useful.
- Green Twitter: Environmental Resources – Last May, Twitter was going through a lot of growing pains, service was unstable and the users were constantly complaining about it. In response, I wrote my first article about Twitter and created my Green Twitter list, which is a list of users working on environmental and green issues. I also created an opml file of the users web sites to import into feed readers. The list, however, has not been updated in quite some time and is on my to-do list – it just keeps getting pushed to the bottom.
- Monitter – Embed Live Bigfoot Search Stream Results – This article was obviously written when I was being more creative with titles and less concerned with keywords. It is a mini review of Monitter, which is an online keyword tracking tool for twitter. It runs in a web page and you can follow three keywords simultaneously. This could be very useful when searching twitter for freelancing work.
- Twellow: Categorize Your Twellow Self – Twellow is a directory of Twitter users that cateogorizes them based on interests or field. The problem is that Twellow categorizes based on what is written in the twitter bio. As I mention in the article, I used to have Doctor Who written in my bio because I was a fan of the show and Twellow had me in the health and medicine category. You can, however, claim your profile by logging in and than add and remove yourself from categories. Twellow is also one of the best ways to find other users with similar interests.
- Qwitter – Find Out Who Has Stopped Following You on Twitter – A humorous look at Qwitter, a tool that emails you when someone has stopped following you and what your last tweet was before that happened.
- Ranking Yourself on Twitter: Does it Even Matter – An examination of our obsession with ranking and grading ourselves in all aspects of our lives. Do you care about your twitter grade or influence? I might check it out but I’m not going to broadcast broadcast my scores.
