    It very well could be. Some logos are very precise and geometrically designed. In other words, in order for all of the curvature of this logo to be in proportion and match up, a series of perfect circles are used in varying sizes. Even where certain circles intersect, makes a huge difference in the over all appearance of the logo. Mostly with balance and negative space.

    At the risk of being offensive, Candice is a HWAHOHS. (Hottie With A Head On Her Shoulders). She's a lot more than just a pretty face. I wonder how many people have underestimated her because of her looks? As the Father of another beautiful woman, that pisses me off.

    Our society tends to see beautiful women as strictly decorative. Yet, it was Heddy Lamarre who figured out frequency hopping. She may have won WW2 with that. At the very least she opened the Atlantic shipping lanes. Without her invention, there could have been no D-Day.

    Let's not even mention all the technologies that were built on its back.

    Since women have only been considered equal for about 50 years, I shudder to think what ideas, inventions, and concepts we missed out on.

    Thanks for these tips, Paul, which are very helpful. It sounds like you've certainly streamlined your process. Kudos on that. Although some us may beg to differ about whether you're "not crazy" (lol). Okay, crazy good perhaps.
    Also, I'm holding you to your prior promise of using my Twitter account for the 2.0 version of myTweetPack.com - so thanks for that in advance. Lastly, I'm sharing this on three hives. Keep buzzing, my friend!
    PS -- and who's this @Candice 🐝 Galek person you keep mentioning? She sounds like Superwoman. I noticed someone with the a similar/same name (I think) on the recent 2017 Forbes "30 under" 30" class of leading global Millennial entrepreneurs. Maybe they're related, you think?

    #4 Don't bother, Candice. Set your IFTTT to scan your Twitter timeline for specific hashtags. I use #fb for FaceBook, #fbp for facebook pages, #tum for Tumblr, #li for LinkedIn, and #pin for Pinterest.

    When it finds one of these tags, it posts to that platform. Then I rotate the tags in myTweetPack.

    Make sense?

    Show me a man who says he's not afraid of "the look" from the wife and I'll show you either a liar or a fool.

    And no, it never stops. I think I have adult-onset ADHD. The scotch is part of my planning routine. ;-)

    Nice buzz, Sandra. I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head yet again.
    Put simply, when it comes to blogging and personal branding:
    beBee = fostering user engagement and a satisfying user experience.
    LI = intentionally trampling user engagement and a frustrating user experience.
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    17/01/2017 #39 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    This is one reason I moved to beBee about a year ago @Sandra Smith. I had engagement on LI but it was dropping due to changes they were making, thanks to their algorithms, many of us were not receiving notifications of those we followed and read regularly. I also find the climate on beBee more conducive and supportive. Also, it's articles like this that benefit from the many hives because people actually see them, re-read the buzzes and repost, hence more views, comments/engagement. Nice to have you here! By the way, we share something in common, I have written about Mental Illness too because I'd like to see the stigma end one day. Have you repurposed your article above to beBee? If you haven't, I would love to read it here. Thanks!

    Great Article / Post Sandra and completely agree with some of your comments LinkedIn has changed so much over the last 12/18 Months I have not seen any changes on there platform if anything all I see are problems and faults which never get dealt with from there lack of decent customer services .

    I spent lot of time on there platform with building dedicated group networks for Marketing purposes but looks like there rules and regulations are different depending on who you are . Since they made few changes on the LinkedIn pulse I use to get views of 5,000 - 10,000 per article and now lucky if 100 people even view it .

    Thanks for sharing your experiences @Sandra Smith. As a data guy I find it interesting to compare beBee with the other social platforms. From my personal experience I see there are different flavors of writing and information shared on beBee and LinkedIn. On my posts, which are more business/IT oriented I get a lot higher engagement on LinkedIn, more views on beBee, but more people liking, commenting and sharing on LinkedIn. Of course it's also not a fair comparison as my LinkedIn network is orders of magnitude bigger. What it does suggest to me is that different types of people are attracted to each platform, at least at this point, and that it underscores the need to find and build your audience on each. By emphasize a full 3-D personal branding approach no doubt beBee will catch up and surpass the other social networks.

    @Sandra Smith.After your final analysis ,one is reminded of what people used to say about thoughts and feelings and why they are being in love with beBee.When you are, you will know you are.You will recognize that the feeling is here.It's the same with the platform strategy ;when it's good ,you will know it's good ,you will recognize that the feeling and the more satisfying depth of understanding is here.What makes beBee platform unique is that it enable readers to manipulate their own perception,behavior and attitude,and even uncover their "core interests" which they were unaware of or unable to articulate at Linked in .

    Packed full of great info. I had to share it on Twitter. I hope my followers take advantage of this.

    #11 I am usually below 100. They other day I got excited on one of my accounts and had 108 :). I still need to review all of this to make sure doing it right...

    #8 I just got a live chat from @Lynda Spiegel: BTW - I see from my Jetpack anayltics that a lot more traffic to my site is coming from Twitter 🙂

    #8 @Sandra Smith, I've had good luck with my beBee tweets, they have driven others on twitter to ask more about it and join.

    #6 I have been doing that but only when I'm going to stored tweets. I'm glad you added the randomizer @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian.

    I'm still going to play it a bit more safe and schedule each tweet apart from the other. And, I will add less.

    I had quite a few going out each day. @Jared 🐝 Wiese, how many do you schedule per day? Appreciate Paul!!

    #9 True, Paul - I guess I need to find a middle ground... I found the scheduling of tweets caused more hassle than helped - but agree. If you put more thought into *HOW* you are scheduling and *WHAT* you are scheduling - it does work. It just requires a bit more thought up front, which some people don't seem to get. Hence your article...

    #8 What can I say, Sandra, Yes, you are missing out. Tweets do drive engagement. . . but only if done right.

    To each his/her own

    Paul, I used to TweetJukebox, now SocialJukebox.... The problem is, although Twitter allowed scheduled repeat Tweets at first, they eventually banned the practice so TweetJukebox had to as well.... As you say, people will abuse it even if they don't realise it's abuse....

    At first, I thought this tool would help generate engagement and mean I / my company was always top of mind. I'm now much more of the opinion that scheduled Tweets don't drive engagement - AT. ALL.

    Twitter is about the hear and now. The "micro moment" (to steal Google's marketing departments phrase). Thusly, I think if you are doing anything other than sharing in the micro-moment, you are not actually using the platform as it's meant to be used.

    I do share my articles on Twitter... but only once. Am I missing out potential SEO / Social media juice? Quite possibly. But I think the risk of spamming is too great to do anything other than this.

    If I miss some eyeballs, so be it. Hopefully they will see my next article instead.

    #4 You certainly aren't alone in that respect, Max. Twitter's seeming simplicity belies its true complexity. It has no peers as a promotion platform. Toss in IFTTT or Zappier scripts that scan for specific hashtags you tweet, and it becomes a social media server cross -posting to any platform with a good API (FB, FB pages, LI, Tumblr, Pinterest)

    #5 Exactly, Lisa. If you schedule 5 tweets right now, each to fire every 6 hours, in six hours, 5 tweets will pop up at the same time and every 6 hours after that. That cause two issues. 1 - Google indexes tweets. Those 5 will count as one (sort of). 2 - They all pop up at the same time on timelines in spammy bunches.

    Since we are creatures of habit, if you always schedule tweets at say, 09:00 the simultaneous tweets could really pile up.

    The easy fix is to mix up your intervals. Some at 360, some at 400, some at 300 etc, AND schedule shorter durations. It's so easy to re-schedule that you don't need to go waaay out. The farther out you schedule, the harder it is to control. After I hit "Send" I'll go change the default to 7 days.

    Another easier fix is to use either the Daily or Weekly Frequency methods. They will mix things up.

    Or, for shares, use the store and schedule in one shot method on the EZ Shortcuts page. It will tweet 28 times every 6 hours and adds a randomizer to the start time. I may add the randomizer to the Minute Interval method

    I've taken to only scheduling 7-10 days at a time. There's a button on the Daily Tweets pages to add tweets randomly from your inventory if ever you run low.

    Your token issues are more likely a case of a troll you have than too much tweeting. Stay under 100 tweets a day.

    I don't think beBee promo tweets are a problem unless that's all that swings by and they pile up. @myTweetPack only tweets promo tweets and RTs from members and has no problems.

    I have been a great test subject for this considering I've had my twitter tokens removed 3 or 4 times now. However, I always use the auto schedule, so my tweets go out every 6 hours. I thnk we found today I may have been tweeting too many tweets even though the time interval was ok? Also, you told me that the tweets should have variety? So, by that... meaning I should not be tweeting everything beBee marketing eg? I'm trying so hard to follow all the twitter rules but they sure can be confusing. If I schedule say 5 tweets on the app within minutes of each other even though they are all from different users and I'm using "Minute by minute" with the default settings ( I change nothing) can that cause a red flag to go up? I always use the default, so my tweets are going out every 6 hours. This last round, I did have a one tweet that was double scheduled by accident. I hope my questions make sense? I don't want to get nixed again. Keep an eye on my account if you don't mind! Thanks for this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    This was great for me Paul. I barely pay attention to Twitter and your buzzes on the subject have been quite educational and have inspired me to look at Twitter closer to see how I might be able to use it better and do so with some wise guidance from an Alpha Wolf.

    #2 Yup, and myTweetpack.com covers all those bases. We even take hashtags a step farther. We allow for hashtags to be rotated so you can use as many as make sense. They won't all be on every tweet instance. We cycle through them. We can also cycle through @mentions if you want to.

    I've used as many as 28 hashtags.

    That ability also allows us to cross post to other platforms via IFTTT (or zappier, your choice) scripts. I use #in, #fb, #fbp,#tum, #pin.

    We also build your follow-me-on-twitter link for you (sue it in email signatures, or your site, in blog posts, on your grocery lists, wherever),

    Building Click-to-Tweet links with Images for blog posts was the first function we had.

    I can add to your list: Have a description that actually says something about you. Enough with the Khalil Gibran quotes already.

    I'm okay with #11, ask for retweets, but not to the detriment of a clickable headline. In other words, Ok if you can spare the room. Since we rotate hashtags, we clear up some space. On a similar subject, "pls follow me" is begging and does not work.

    #5 is seriously tough to do.

    I don't believe Twitter is well-suited for engagement. It's far too busy and noisy. My feed zips along at 3-5000 tweets an hour. The odds of my seeing a single tweet are minuscule.

    DMs are not much better. Most meaningful ones get lost in the clutter of "thanks for following me." I get about 100 a day. Now you know why myTweetPack.com doesn't have any such auto-DM option. I actually started working on a "delete those annoying DMs" function before I got sidetracked.

    I mean, sure, engage when and if you can but I guarantee you will miss 80-90% of attempts to communicate on Twitter.

    Hello @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, another well written post here & I agree with you " Pissing potential customers off is never a good idea. "

    Paul, I have found that to build a large Twitter audience you need to: Here are my top 14:
    1-Post great content.

    2-Write a professional bio.

    3-Use hashtags.

    4-Place a Facebook/Twitter/Instagram logo on your blog.

    5-Engage with others on the social platforms, be real.

    6-Make sure your content is shareable.

    7-Re-share other people's content that is desirable.

    8-Reach out to Top influencers.

    9- Use relevant keywords in your bio so you rank in Twitter search. Don’t forget to include your city or region name to attract local users.

    10- Use relevant hashtags in your posts. Tweets with hashtags get at least 2x more engagement, and will help you attract new followers who are searching for those keywords.

    11- Ask for retweets. Tweets that include “Please retweet” in their text get 4x more retweets.

    12- Find people you know by uploading your email contacts to Twitter. They are likely to follow you back, especially since they know you in real life.

    13- Include images with your tweets. Research suggests that tweets with images receive 18%-20% more engagement than those without.

    14- Promote your Twitter account on all your marketing materials. This includes your business cards, letterheads, brochures, signs and of course, your website.

    Now make it happen, start today.

    regards,
