B.L. Ochman's blog: Some Social Media Search Tools I Like: I'll show you mine if you show me yours. - 34 views

  • Some Social Media Search Tools I Like: I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
  • Here are some of the tools and apps I like for social media search. Got others? Twitseek: enter a URL, hashtag or keyword and it finds Tweets related to tracks #hastags and also trends each one and shows you most popular ones Poll Everywhere lets you poll by SMS, Twitter or the Web in real-time. It replaces clunky audience response hardware at events and lets people use their phones to respond. Kikin kills me! It augments Google searches with relevant information from my social media contacts. So, if I'm shopping, I can get opinions, prices, see reviews and more, without ever leaving the product page. There's a good review on Techcrunch. Tweetscan Twitter search tool that updates every second and will send you emails when your keywords are mentioned, or let you back up your Twitter stream, which Twitter purges regularly Twitscoop searches and tracks search terms, can create a graph of results if there's enough data. It'll show the trend for your keyword activity/popularity Tweepsearch Twitter profile and bio search by keywords Twitstat searches and also shows search trends Twitter Search (formerly Summize) isTwitter's own search engine, and the advanced version is very robust Backtweets : enter a URL and it finds Tweets that linked to it. Mr. Tweet recommends people to follow, communities to join, communities your friends and followers are in, and hot topics in communities. Tweetmi displays the most active Twitterers and top stories from the people you follow. So it's a personalized aggregation of your feed, displaying the the real-time conversation. One Riot is a real-time search engine that crawls the links people share on Twitter, Digg and other social sharing services, matches them to trending topics on Twitter or ones you search. Collecta does a real-time meta search on topics you choose, and, unlike most other search tools, saves your searches for future use.

John Quincy Adams, Twitterer? - - 0 views

  • They may be two centuries old, but, written with staccato-like brevity, entries from one of Adams’s diaries resemble tweets sufficiently that they began appearing Wednesday on Twitter.
  • The diary, which Adams maintained until April 1836, is a rarity among the many he kept, in that the description for each day is no more than one line long. Historians believe he used the descriptions as references to longer entries in other journals.
  • Word spread, and the society decided to tweet the entries. They average 110 to 120 characters, below the 140-character limit imposed by Twitter, and there is nary an LOL or BFF among them.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • The posts will link to maps that, using the latitude and longitude coordinates from his entries, pinpoint his progress across the ocean. There will also be links to the longer entries of other Adams diaries, which can be found on the society’s Web site,
  • The idea appears to be working. As of Wednesday evening, only nine hours after the first entry was Twittered, the post had more than 4,800 followers, and Mr. Dibbell said the number was climbing.
    Clever use of social networking tech. The initial take on twitter was that it just broadcast mindless sort personal observations. This use turns that idea around. Interesting way to teach a bit of history. What if we started tweeting Basho & Issa, the great Japanese haiku poets? Hmmm sounds like a fun lit project doesn't it?

Twitter is Stupid. (until you realize…) - 23 views

  • Saying Twitter is ‘stupid’ is like saying all of TV is stupid. All newspapers, all magazines, all radio, all movies. EVERYTHING is stupid if that’s how we think.
  • The truth of the matter is that if all you’re tuning in to is the worst, most annoying things you can find on TV or on the radio, then EVERY kind of media will provide a horrible experience.
  • Tune in to the channels that have the best shows, and your Twitter experience be awesome. Tune in to people that post junk, and you’ll hate it. It’s not the channel that’s stupid; it’s the content we choose to see. Ultimately, if your Twitter experience sucks, it’s your fault, not Twitters.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • A Twitter experience isn’t made in 2 minutes. It’s crafted over time. It occurs as you discover awesome people you’ve never heard of. It occurs when you begin to see the world differently because you’re exposed to the lives of interesting people from all over the globe. It occurs when you interact with them. It occurs when you inspire them, and are inspired by them.
  • If you’ve tried Twitter and left because all your friends were posting updates from the bar or sharing the latest and greatest cat meme pictures, maybe your friends aren’t who you should be following.
