You knew there had to be a way to make money off of Twitter, didn’t you? Not the “work for it” kind of income, but the passive “sounds too good to be true” way. And guess what? You were right! Maybe. If this app delivers, which we kind of doubt, based on its reviews.
But if someone gets this right, they’re going to clean up – because we’re all looking for that free money, baby.
If you’ve ever wished you could hear the trite phrase “There’s an app for that” in response to the matter of being able to quickly and actionably extract the most tweetable content from an article or post, start counting your lucky stars.
Paul Ford, former web editor of Harper’s, created a free web extension called SavePublishing.
Here’s how it works.
We shared best practices for following people on Twitter, but what about those folks that follow you?
What do we mean?
Well, have you ever looked at your follower list and wondered why those lovely folks are following you? Sure, you’re super-fantastic-awesome, but knowing why folks follow you could help you tailor your tweets to a target audience and continue to grow that following . . . if you care about such things.
And we found an app that helps you sleuth just that.
Ever go on vacation and your family BEGS you to leave the iPhone at home? You can’t, of course, because you’ll miss all the @mentions and @replies – and we ALL know that witty replies become exponentially less so as the days pass.
Why? Well, it seems like you’re not quick on your feet and that’s a Twitter taboo in the land of snappy comebacks and hashtags.
What’s an IRL human to do? Set an out of office reply on Twitter and then you can pick up where you left off, wit intact, and your family won’t divorce you!
