Has a third-party app hijacked your Twitter account and is secretly inserting links into your tweets? I’ll show you how to stop apps advertising on your Twitter account and put an end to those unwanted tweets.
Last week I showed you how to create a Twitter list in 6 seconds. Today we’ll look at why it’s not always good to be on someone’s else’s Twitter list, and what steps you can take to remove yourself from a list that you don’t want to be on.
Twitter can be difficult to consume if you follow more than a handful of people. Instead of trying to sip from Twitter’s mighty firehose, you can enjoy the different flavours from several different taps, using Twitter lists.
If you know of an event coming up build a Twitter list before the event. The list can be made private for you own use or it can be made public and you can promote it and encourage others to use it during the event.
Get your business on the map by taking advantage of local events with Twitter.
Adelaide is a happening place this time of year. We’ve already had the Fringe Festival, Tour Down Under, the Adelaide Festival, Soundwave, Womadelaide, Adelaide Food & Wine Festival, and there are many more events to come. Such events often draw many tourists from interstate and overseas and these visitors can benefit from your goods and services, if they are aware of you.
Be a part of the conversation
Even though your business may not be directly involved in these events you can still jump in and participate on social media as a neighbourhood authority. Your own local knowledge can benefit others who are wanting to find information about the area. Mingling with others online who are talking about the event raises awareness of your goods and services with these visitors and introduces them to your business.
