    #4 #6 Twitter is great at promoting just about anything. . . If it can sell the Office of The President of the USA, it can sell anything.

    It really bugs me when people say it's useless in one breath and blame/thank Twitter for Trump in the next

    The trick, Max, is to acknowledge that every tweet will get a few retweets. So tweet a lot. A good Twitter engagement is 1.2-2%, which sound low as F*ck. But, 1.2- 2% of what???

    2% of a big number is a big number.

    #8 Wow. That is a bit more extreme than my scenario I gave. Yet, today's Society has also confused human rights meaning with doing whatever we want to do, no matter how immoral or sinful it is. Those posting may have even be part of his or her confused message. I, like you, still would have unfollowed them.

    #4 Yes, it's important to stay on-brand. Occasional departures are to be expected, but not wholesale bait-and-switch. I had one who was "Content manager and content creator" for a human rights organization but was really distributing porn.

    Gawd, do I ever HATE DMs... I get at least 150 a day most of the "Thanks for following me" variety. I hate them so much I started working on a "Delete those annoying DMs" module fro myTweetPack.com.

    I actually don't even look at them anymore.

    That said, I love Twitter. I don't use it for engagement. With the DM system fatally flawed it's an exercise in futility. I use Twitter to drive people where they can engage. A tweet is the perfect length for a post title, a URL pointing to it, and a short comment

    Great Points. Another reason I unfollowed someone, is their posts did not stick to their profile. They would "content share", yet soon it was irrelevant to their page. For example, one's page was all about Inspiration for Entrepreneurs. Then for almost three months I noticed very hateful words all about politics. If they wanted to share their view on that, then this person should have started a second profile.

    @Katyan Roach great tips - I will put them to use post-haste
    I don't know that being authentic and 'real' is a recipe for me. After the election - my 'truthy' conservative channel that I run took a massive hit in followship - but the liberal one I own has escalated the more fakery and blather I pour into it. And for all the hype about more characters I still seem to be stuck at 144. PS - adding a pic, meme, infographic or vid is proven to get more shares and attention.

    Thanks for these awesome tips, Katyan, which are very helpful indeed. One more tip I would add is try interviewing and quoting selected influencers in your blog posts. They are likely to notice their name and retweet it and/or share on other social platforms. And even if they don't share your post, they will be grateful to you for the free publicity.

    Every US citizen and every diplomat now have no knowledgeable support. That our gutless leaders approved Tillerson said everything about their ability to lead this country. Remember the last time this country was totally controlled by the GOP we entered the Great Depression. EPA gone? Hell, this country will probably be a gone within a year with a bunch of psychopaths taking total control.

    #12 For sure @Dean Owen. More and more earthquakes happening in areas that were never earthquake prone. I have a friend and her husband is an Oil Mogel. He was very upset when the price of gas went down because obviously the price of a barrel of oil goes down too. I felt bad that he wasn't able to buy the Audi he purchases every 2 yrs as a tax deduction for her... it's only priced at 80K and he pays cash for one every 2 yrs along with buying new fleets of trucks every few years too. Fracking, uggh... water contamination as well. Yes @Aurorasa Sima, all high level officials that left or were asked to leave. Everything that is going on right now is something I've never witnessed in my lifetime.

    wow. these accounts were just created. How long before many of the same verified accounts are gone? Thanks for posting these. By the way, I can share (but not my source) that A certain Govn't conservation Agency for National Forest was told they aren't allowed to talk to the Newspaper. This is a first in the US this has ever happened. The questions were deferred to another state. Can't say where, just take my word, it's real.

    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    21/01/2017 #9 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #8 That is a valid point well worth surfacing, @Rob McNaughton

    And one of the major areas where we see beBee being different, right from the start.

    What it takes is information flowing from the users and people within the company using the site and establishing relationships that are based on listening to what users are experiencing.

    It all comes down to - if your business is building a social media site where users basically generate your product, then you have to create mechanisms right from the start to get useable and accurate information from the people' producing' on the site everyday.

    #7 Deb Helfrich .. I can say that you started this topic by introducing the word 'revenue' Here is my take on 'revenue' as it now is within the LI platform.

    LI purposely does not clean out its database allowing spammers/scammers money launderers and the like to function and function efficiently. They allow crimes to be committed and are therefore party to these acts.

    Microsoft, in its purchase, has done the same ... all in the name of revenue.

    The platform is 'dirty'.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    20/01/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #6 Well, we sort of expected the dumb-down so that MS could figure out how to improve their revenue.

    But almost nothing works. That is absurd. And why it doesn't work could be sorted out by most rookie programmers.

    What is interesting though is how the bad coding seems to come across to a lot of professionals as personal targeting. LI has no idea how their users use their site. Ludicrous.

    Glad to have you here, @Rob McNaughton, and I see the influx of new users gaining steam every day. While the conversations and content continue to be deeply engaging.

    Personally, I find this headline and the content of the post to be absolutely false. They have taken away my ability to have conversations in numerous ways. What this blog says is exactly opposite of what I feel using the new site.

    And content? Only about a dozen people freaked out yesterday about drafts going missing.... and comments add to the count of comments but aren't being displayed.

    Plus I am seeing the exact same things in my newsfeed for 3 and 4 days in a row. So how I am meant to find any content?

    Call people on the phone and ask them if I should check if they are using LI?

    The point of my rant is that they simply don't know how to do proper testing and QA and it really, really matters.

    Intentions are mute if you deliver the exact opposite.

    Of course, the beBee team knows how to get in touch with me, if they need any testing....

    Interestingly, LinkedIn uses the word "relevant" three times in the short blog above. Perhaps they're borrowing a page from beBee successful marketing, or perhaps they've just been stung by irrelevance? Either way, it strikes me that LI is now fighting to remain relevant in an increasingly crowded social media space.

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

    #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...

    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)
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    16/01/2017 #6 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #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.
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    16/01/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    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.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    15/01/2017 #3 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #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 β€œPlease 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,

    #15 I'm back home after a meeting out of town. A 3-hour return drive gives great opportunity for thought.

    RE your issue, FancyJ,... There is nothing that can be done in a hurrry. You do need to follow back more people... those you deem to fit the profile you want. You also need to clean out any unfollowers from those you follow. The mechanisms for doing both already exist in our app.

    You alluded to the fact that you want to connect with people who are active and who interact with you. We scan who retweets or mentions you (or another account for that matter) and add them to a list of potential follows. Then, you filter the potential follows list according to whatever you want. The possible filters are vast.

    Once you have that, you can schedule the follows. You can also set a bunch of them on ignore.

    You can't control who follows you. But, over time, you can build a list of people you follow who are active and who have already proven their willingness to interact (because they already did). Who you follow will be a subset of who is following you based on parameters you set up in the first place.

    That's really the best you can hope for. Reah out if you have questions

    #15 As I sit here thinking about it, I see that many people need to fix their accounts. There are people they follow that they shouldn't, and people they should follow that they aren't. Those issues are done once they start using the app, but, what about all the time before?

    I need to figure out how to fix it without piling on a ton of processing needs. It's important to me to keep the eventual cost way down.

    Also, a big account like yours brings out several new layers of complexity that I had not considered. The obvious solution is to have you follow everybody, then unfollow whoever doesn't fit a profile. Problem: It would take nearly two years to follow everyone at max safe follow limits. In the meantime, you wouldn't be able to do anything new.

    Yep, I need to think on this

    06/12/2016 #14 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #13 Hi FancyJ... The answer to your question is a definite, "No." Usually, I would say that following back blindly caused the problem in the first place. That isn't so in your case.

    You have 454,637 followers as of right now. You are only following 3,744. So, no, you aren't following blindly.

    You can't stop people from following you short of blocking them. That's extreme. Still, it's warranted sometimes.

    Since most Twitter growth packages focus on following the followings of others, there's a huge incentive for spammers, scammers, follower-sellers, and the like to follow big accounts like yours. Sorry, but there isn't much you can do about that.

    On Twitter, anyone can follow anyone. Your "audience" is that group that both follows and is followed. IMO: Your strategy should be to follow back those accounts that fit a profile you want to interact with and/or promote to. Ignore the others. That we can definitely help with going forward.

    This is what I mean about this app being crowd-built. You aren't the only person facing this issue. It's unusual, it's the exact opposite of most Twitter problems.

    It intrigues me.

    Rather than hunt down potential people to follow, you already have a massive potential friends base. You need to filter them and follow-back accordingly. This will require some thought.

    The problem, technically, is that Twitter does not supply profile data for each follower. So, you can't filter them. I have to go grab the data in other passes. It would take about an hour and a half to pull in all that data.

    It can be done.

    This will require some thought. Maybe we can break up the job into manageable pieces.

    Let me get back to you. If I come up with a possible solution, are you game to test it?

    I have quite a few followers the majority being no active, or phish. How can I get rid of the fake, xxx, and eggs? Will this program work for me with such a high number? I am desperate to weed out my account and focus on my interacting connections. Thank you for posting this I just hope I can benefit from it. Cheer @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    Yes, Lisa it looks like you did it right. SO did everyone else, even if @Pamela 🐝 Williams is overly generous with her grace period, but, hey, it's HER grace period.

    Re your 403s: Check your email, this may be a back-blow from the comm error we experienced a little bit ago. I sent you an email on how to fix it. I'll be out today until this afternoon. I'll call you then.

Many of my posts that were tweeting w/out incident suddenly received the 403 code and I don't think anything is tweeting from my account now? They were doing just fine up until Nov 3rd?

    #6 Update: I changed the beBee Producer image to 930X632 (the 632 doesn't matter though) I Left the focus in the first 496px.

    Sharing to Twitter is still perfect. Looks better here.

    #2 You can't be fully automatic if you wanted to on Twitter (at least not for long). It would seem we are talking about two different things here.

    Twitter is largely useless one-on-one. It comes into its stride as a many-to-many platform and as a content promotion/broadcast medium.

    To make that work, you need not just any numbers, but targeted numbers. That is what we are trying to accomplish. That is what this app is designed to do.

    Thanks for your comment

    Looking more closely, it seems like 930X496 would be optimal for Twitter Shares.

    Maybe an Image 930Xsomething would fit both timelines if we understand that only the top 496 would show up in Twitter shares?

    I used a 2:1 ratio for the main image here just like Tess suggested in her post. Yes, it shares much better to Twitter without any strange cropping.

    BUT. . . It looks weak here in the feed.

    Compare it to @Jim Murray's Daily buzz for today. This one works much better on Twitter. Jim's works tons better here.

    Thoughts anyone?

    #8 To each his/her own. I too prefer manual cars. I haven't worn a watch in five years, though. My watch collection is probably corroding as we speak. For social media, though, automation guided by human thought is a happy medium that allows for time better spent elsewhere. . . Like driving stick on a curvy mountain road. Speaking of curvy . . .

    I don't know yet if it's even possible to do what he wants from a technical view. I'll be investigating it for V2.0

    The Mentorship and Tweet Chat promotion/moderation systems will be a priority.

    Thanks for all this great information, Paul. The app you have developed sounds very promising indeed. Kudos on your exemplary efforts in bringing this to fruition. I would also point out the importance of Twitter lists, as you noted. For example, I have about two dozen Twitter lists based on topic areas of interest. This is very helpful for marketing segmentation and social media outreach. Thanks again for the awesome buzz. Perhaps I can be helpful in further testing and rolling out this app per my personal Twitter account? Let's talk about this soon. πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸπŸβœŒοΈοΈ

    04/01/2017 #9 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #8 That's a personal thing. I usually just look at their profile and scroll down a little ways. I get a feeling if they tweet often or just "mail it in"

    If you aren't sure, add them in. As you click to process them, you will see how many tweets you pull in and how many potential follows. If you're okay with what you see, fine. If not, play with the list.

    Once it's the way you like, you can leave it alone.

    I was gonna ask, then thought it too random, but now I need to ask. What constitutes active enough to be a good alpha? Me and my peeps aren't into the whole brevity thing, apparently. i.e. large follow bases but sparse tweeting.

    #5 Nothing to work. Who are your Alphas if I may ask?

    Just set how many Super-Pack tweets you want (Dashboard - > Set Retweet Preferences).

    Periodically, hit Process RTs and Mentions from the GRRowth Portal. That will add new Alpha tweets to the system and add potential follow to your potential follows list. Hit Work with Alphas for more stuff including adding, deleting, or editing them

    It's also a good idea to hit Refresh ALL Relationships periodically. A few times a day is good for normal-sized accounts. John-sized ones will probably prefer once a day. The Refresh ALL Relationships will also activate your Process UNfollows button

    Using the GRRowth portal is not an intuitive thing. It isn't a difficult thing, but it isn't intuitive.

    We use methods that are only possible with myTweetPack.com or a custom implementation. Many of them fly against the prevailing "wisdom" of Twitter use.

    No kidding. No one else can do what we say to do and still have a life.

    I will be making a series of videos outlining how to go about it. In the meantime, I'll put out a Producer post walk-through, or possibly a series of posts.

    The GRRowth portal is an implementation of Influencer Marketing (sorry, @Milos Djukic, but at least we choose our own influencers) We then mine accumulated data for targeted follows. We selectively retweet from their posts.

    We use them to create a buzz

    TweetPack's a neat little product. I didn't initiate anything with the chatbot, but it's good to know that it exists.

    Although, despite how often I'm scheduling tweets, I thought my follower count would have passed 150 by now.

    #4 Just to be clear, I was called to NCIS the TV show. Yes, that chat thing is just a little too much fun.

    I started it to build up @Gary Sharpe's idea of "elder wolves" (need a new name for that). Gary thought that myTweetPack.com would be great for managing 3rd party accounts. It's so easy to run multiple accounts that he's probably right.

    We can't stop it. Anyone can do it. What we can do is support those who prove their competence with the system, and want to do that. I thought a direct chat with an elder could be helpful.

    The chat system is step one on the road to a mentor/account management system. Who knows, maybe myTweetChat.com will spawn a whole new cottage industry
