Web-Work At Home Follows Twitter @MaxEngage

twitter @ maxengage

This article is all about my Twitter accounts and where I want to go with them, I have way too many twitter accounts, is it crazy to have so many? Help me decide. Since Twitter is one of my favourite social micro blogging networks I have perhaps over reached my limit. Each twitter account that I have tweets about different subjects of interest to me. In all I have six accounts which may seem excessive to some folks and I would agree, that’s why the bulk of them are set up to auto tweet through RSS… what a time saver.

WOW! HootSuite5 with HTML5

I just had to post this mini post to alert anyone who isn’t using Hootsuite yet. CHECK IT OUT NOW. Browser support for HTML5 seems to favour Chrome and Safari although i haven’t tested out opera, as for the IE latest version whatever it is … doesn’t do well. Chrome rules  (-; The only niggle is the image support for FaceBook sharing which can slow down things a bit but it is worth the wait as the images do make your FaceBook time line prettier. (-: I just love the tabs that you can have lists to follow and multi feed accounts view or individual accounts

Which Twitter Posting Tactics to use

If there was only one tip that I could give about Twitter then it has to be diversity, in other words keep it fresh and diverse. All too often I come across twitter user’s who self promote to the extreme and don’t share the web. Twitter is for many, a simple online text tool that they can use to connect to their friends and family through their mobile phones or computers, and that’s fine. For the serious Internet Marketers who want to build up a sizable following then posting tactics are vital ways to reach out and engage, in other words

Recently there has been a lot of talk about the micro blog phenomenon with supporters claiming that it will overtake mainstream blogging.

Are you tired of clicking links in Twitter that promise all kinds of incentives only to be let down again and again? And do you want more than just a fake following that doesn’t respond anyway?

Setup your own Twitter Front Page

Since I am Twitter daft I have just recently launched my own Twitter Front Page with the help of the P2 theme from Automatic. The concept of having your own Twitter Front Page can be a valuable marketing platform and I think it gives you more options to branch out. I hope to expand the Twitter blog to include other marketing elements which can be of help to other people. At the moment the P2 theme needs to be custom edited to allow page navigation on the header. Hopefully the folks from Automatic will include more of these elements in
