Contrasts on Twitter Between Obama and Trump

If you are an old-timer on Twitter, you no doubt remember the days when then-Senator Barack Obama ran for office. He was a pioneer on social media such as Twitter and Facebook. He won largely because he understood just how you could be positively engaged with your followers.

Twitter Marketing - Should I Follow Everyone Who Follows Me?

There are many new users of Twitter who almost feel as though they were obligated to follow back anyone that follows them. Their doubts are a good sense of the normal ethics that say that we should be equally interested in people who take an interest in us, but it can cause some confusion for Twitter users when they lose all understanding of this micro-blogging universe just because they thought they had to check every single tweet that came in their timelines.

Twitter Power - It Is An Effective Type of Social Media

Current US President, Barack Obama, has approx. 6.28 million followers on Twitter. When he wrote a tweet, I saw an interesting development. During the first minute, he got 178 retweets and 337 likes. During the first two minutes, numbers had grown to 696 retweets and 1,200 likes.

Obviously, not many of us have millions of followers, but the power of Twitter is still present. People enjoy Twitter, and for my own part, I was somewhat off Twitter whilst I was on Facebook. When I dumped Facebook, I quickly regained the pace of Twitter. Of course, not nearly spending as much time on Twitter as I did on Facebook, but certainly enjoying the ping-pong of quick debates with people across the globe.

In a matter of seconds you can update yourself on timelines based on media you follow, and can get acquainted with news even before it appears on your television.

If you ever doubted the power and benefits of Twitter, you should get on Twitter and check it out. It is a real goldmine of good information at your fingertips in real time.

Someone F*cked My Twitter Account

Pardon my french, but someone f*cked my Twitter account, Prime Tweeter, which was intended to keep people alert on what I wrote to commend fellow Twitter users.

It is no secret that the project has been sleeping for some time - but never actually abandoned. Yet, someone used my account to follow 500+ people whose only quality was that they were either pornographic, arabic profiles or just plain trash accounts meant to sell weight loss products or muscle enhancers...

I apologize for not having secured the account. What a loss if someone has unfollowed due to that - and, unfortunately, some have.

Restitution has been initiated. Firstly by unfollowing all the bogus accounts, and now a few articles will be released to make everyone more attentive as to how to protect passive accounts.

One element I did find was that the infringing party didn't write any tweets while holding the account. Very clever, because I follow this account from one of my other accounts. I tweet both in Danish and English, so it was only natural to cross-link so I could see if tweets began appearing on my English timeline.

Have a nice weekend, and hope you come back to Prime Tweeter

Make 2011 Your Best Twitter Year

Make 2011 your best Twitter year by sharing and retweeting more generously. This blog was actually designed to give praise to Twitter power users. Twitter was designed as a social network of micro-bloggers who share within their field of special interest.

Happy New Year everyone. :-)

Britt Malka Was Winner in August

Actually forgot to mention that Britt Malka won the vote for Prime Tweeter in August.

Voting was incredibly low, and I just have to realize that Prime Tweeter never got the attention I felt it deserved. Have fun tweeting everyone, and congrats to Britt for tweeting so well. I hope she keeps up the good work, and you can follow her here:

Perhaps Bad Habits Can't Be Broken Anyway...

You may be wondering about the title "Perhaps bad habits can't be broken anyway", but there is a very good reason for that title.

When I started this blog, the intention was to bring praise to the people on Twitter who made a difference without necessarily using auto-response systems or artificial systems to generate followers. I even showed an example of a unique DISfollow of all followers, after which this one user chose only a few users worth following, and left it up to the rest if they wanted to keep following him. That user was Joel Comm. A unique user, and also the author of Twitter Power - the book that was recently released in a version 2.0.

This blog was also started to RENEW the system instead of boring FollowFridays, the so-called #FF hashtag, that noone really reads anymore. Inflation takes out the value of any currency when done at nauseum.

All of the above motivations were spiced with informative articles about how to tweet more effectively, and even an e-book was created, all to NO AVAIL whatsoever. Even a majority of the candidates nominated didn't care about the nomination...

Need I say, I am moving on to other avenues. It was fun while it lasted...
