ManageFlitter NEW PRO FEATURE!

Sometimes it is necessary to block another Twitter user. 

Harassment by another Twitter user, or SPAM/bot/fake accounts following you may all be best dealt with by blocking.

According to information on Twitter's website blocked users cannot;

  • Add your Twitter account to their lists.
  • Have their @replies or mentions show in your mentions tab (although these Tweets may still appear in search).
  • Follow you.
  • See your profile picture on their profile page or in their timeline.

Twitter doesn't provide any direct way via the main or mobile Twitter.com site of reviewing a list of who you have blocked.

Sometimes it is however useful to review and unblock the accounts...

Twitter's rules, limits and regulations can at times be a little vague and confusing. These limits are put in place to stop people, businesses or automated programmes from abusing the Twitter network.  These rules are vague by design in order to prevent reverse engineering by parties who want to abuse the Twitter network.

Whilst these rules have been put in place by Twitter to prevent genuine abuse of their system, legitimate Twitter users can sometimes inadvertedly fall foul of these Twitter rules.

Having an understanding of some of these Twitter rules can help prevent your account getting suspended by Twitter.

Below we have listed 3 guidelines to help prevent your...

1. Introduction
 
If your information is publicly displayed anywhere on the internet, I can (and will) find it, and can (and will) find the perfect excuse to contact you, if you might buy what I’m selling.

To some people, this seems like a really annoying thing to do. But it’s not a bad practice in and of itself.

If the...

A recent study revealed that up to 40% of users on Twitter are inactive. ManageFlitter's inactive filter allows you to detect and unfollow inactive Twitter accounts that you are following.

Unfollowing inactive accounts on Twitter is important for the following reasons:

1. Inactive accounts do not engage in conversations on Twitter.

2. Inactive accounts do not retweet accounts on Twitter.

3. Following an inactive account increases your Twitter "following" count - which subsequently affects your Twitter ratio.

4.  In some cases, following inactive accounts...

ManageFlitter allows you to sort Twitter accounts by "influence".  This can be useful when deciding who to follow or unfollow.

This influence rating of an account is based on a number of factors including:

  • The number of followers the account has.

  • The number of times the account has been placed on other peoples' Twitter lists – (added to a Twitter list)

One of my favourite things about Twitter is how it provides me with VIP access into the minds of some very smart people.

We all know about the Lady Gaga's, Justin Bieber's and Deepak Chopra's of the world and the social impact of their tweets.

However it is the lower profile geniuses whose tweets that I find are the most interesting.

Below are 5 lesser known Twitter accounts that provide me with insight and inspiration.

This Harvard man knows his graphs. He has been working in computer science since long before the Twitter egg was hatched. He has an online project collecting data and analysis of Apple's business strategy and predictions of...

No matter the size of your company or the industry you are in, Twitter offers an excellent way for companies of all sizes to engage with customers and stay fresh in their minds.
 
Whether your company does not yet have a Twitter account or your Twitter account is struggling to get followers, it is worth studying the social media habits of companies that are tweeting their way toward success.

Below are three examples of companies that are using Twitter smartly.
