Tweepi v2.0 :: a geekier, faster way to bulk add quality followers.  This is a great tool build quality followers with your Twitter accounts.

Twitter only allows you to follow 2000 people, unless the you meet the ratio of following/followers.

No one seems to know what that ratio is, but I have felt the wrath of this limit. I have an account where I follow 2000 Twitters, but only have a little over 1200 followers. Twitter will not allow me to follow anymore Twitters.

This is were Tweepi comes in to help. Tweepi allows you to flush the unfollowers, reciprocate with those that do follow you, and unfollow those who do not actively tweet. A tool that easily helps in the clean-up and maintenance of your Twitter account.

Check it out and let me know your feelings!! Cheers!

Engadget repprts “Official Twitter for Android app goes live, will go open source”.

The app is really well thought out. Downloaded the Twitter app last night and it has been a joy to use. The home page has a nice layout with tweets, direct messages, lists, and retweets right at your finger tips. The animation of the most popular hashtags simplifies access to them.

Nice job by the team at Twitter! !

WordPress Plugin – WordPress 2 Ping.fm for Social Media Experts

It has been a week of finding great WordPress Plugins. Today I found a plugin to help me distribute the posting on my WordPress blog to all my social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Pages, and LinkedIn. WordPress 2 Ping.fm is the plugin of choice.

Ping.fm has become a favorite tool for social media junkies because it allows you to write a post in one location and distribute it to your network of social media accounts.

The problem was how to get my blog posts to all my social media accounts. The answer, install WordPress 2 Ping.fm plugin to distribute my blog post to Ping.fm. Then Ping.fm distributes the post to the social media network. Bingo!

Dashboard of Ping.fmIt was very easy. The steps are:

  • Create an account on Ping.fm.
  • Add your social media sites by selecting on the “Add To Network”.
  • When at the Dashboard, select Application Keys and copy the long string.
  • Install WordPress 2 Ping.fm plugin from the Plugins “New Add” in the WP admin dashboard.
  • Go to Ping.fm in the Settings section and add your Ping.fm key
  • Select the radio button for All Categories and save.
  • DONE!

It is that easy. Every time I post an article on my blog, it is distributed to my network of social media sites.

I like this one-to-many type of communication. I can simply touch the many social communities that I belong too with a push of one button. Have fun and let me know what you think.
