Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Users can group posts together by topic or type by use of hashtags – words or phrases prefixed with a "#" sign. Similarly, the "@" sign followed by a username is used for mentioning or replying to other users. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. The Twitter Web interface uses the Ruby on Rails framework. The service's application programming interface (API) allows other web services and applications to integrate with Twitter.

I have many data and inputs in excel, I want to use functions for these data to calculate and see the result to make a decision but the problem is I have no idea about how can I make excel read all these data together and comparing them to know what is the suitable decision?

For example, I have inputs about number of twitter followers, number of customers in my site...etc
How can I make excel read all these numbers together and compare them in order to make the right decision?
Hope my question was clear :(
Thank you and waiting for your reply.

Thanks to the Marketo engineers and staff for working so quickly on this, the site is now back up before noon PDT.
I can find all the users I want to entice to my cause, because they like certain Twitter posts.
Can I send them each a DM in Java code?
Here I come again with this question on how to achieve dynamic content loading when user scroll to the bottom of the page. Currently, my code is loading all the content from the db at once using ajax, but I don't want to load everything at once. I want it to load just like twitter or facebook. Below is my code and what I've been trying to do.

function yHandler() {
    var wrap = document.getElementById('homeFeed');
    var contentHeight = wrap.offsetHeight;
    var yOffset = window.pageYOffset;
    var y = yOffset + window.innerHeight;
    if (y >= contentHeight) {
        // Ajax call to get more dynamic data goes here, how do I integrate the ajax call here? 
window.onscroll = yHandler;

function feed() {
    var xhttp;
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
        // code for modern browsers
        xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
    } else {
        // code for IE6, IE5
        xhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    xhttp.onreadystatechange = function(response) {
        if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200) {
            document.getElementById("homeFeed").innerHTML = this.response;
    };"GET", "functions/feedUpdate_New.php", true);
<div id="homeFeed"></div>

Open in new window

PHP - feedUpdate_New.php

$sql = "SELECT message, audio, firstname, lastname FROM once WHERE username='myname'";
$query = mysqli_query($db_connect, $sql); 
    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($query, MYSQLI_ASSOC)) {
                    $message = $row['message'];
                    $audio = $row['audio'];
                    $firstname = $row['firstname'];
                    $lastname = $row['lastname'];

echo '<div id="parentContainer">';
      echo $message.'<br />';
      echo $firstname.''.$lastname;
echo '</div>';

I have more than 1000 lines returned from my database query back to the ajax call. But I want to use the
function yHandler()

Open in new window

to achieve the dynamic loading, but I'm not just getting how to integrate the ajax call inside my
function feed()

Open in new window

into the yHandler to get the dynamic loading working.
Do I need to add LIMIT into my sql statement? Or is there any other way to get this done?
Is there a piece of code I can put in a href which when you click the link shares the page in facebook or twitter?

I know you can use:

<a href="<URL>&text=<TEXT>via=<USERNAME>"><img src="tw-circle.png" border="0" height="36" width="36"></a>

But I want it to know the page it is on as it is for a page template.

Using the documentation found here I have created a tabbed form wizard with Parsley validation.
JSFiddle here
I have the form validating perfectly when using the top tabs to move between tab-panes however I am having trouble with the "next" and "previous" buttons.
On initial click of the "Next" button on the first tab-pane the validation seems to work fine however this is where the trouble begins. The "next" button then renders itself "disabled" and does not work any more.
From what I can read the trouble begins on line 2 of my js. Line 3 (commented out) is my attempt at a fix but witht success.

Not all students like writing. It might seem like a complex and a completely unnecessary skill, especially if your course seems to have nothing to do with writing. But actually, it’s not like that at all.
I don't want to have a profile image on the Twitter page.
Everything I want to be displayed is in the Header Photo.
How can I get rid of the circle where there isn't going to be an image?

I need to turn on email alerts to notify me of a new Like or new Follow on Twitter. How do I do this?

And I have the app ruing on my iPhone 6 and get an alert on my cell-phone. If I need to turn this off, how do I do so?

I recently watched a video on, who are recognised by many as experts in social media and SEO.  The video I watched was recommending a strategy that suggested that to maximise the use of each unique tweet, you should seek to schedule the same tweet multiple times over two weeks (it was suggested 7 times over two weeks) AND at different times, acknowledging the fact that the average Twitter user only spend 13 minutes per day on the platform, so unless you scheduled at different times, the size of audience you would hit through a single tweet posted once was minimal.

However, looking at Twitters policy, it would appear that multiple posting of the same tweet is spam

Question to Answer
1. Is there a limit to the number of times you can retweet a tweet?
2. If you can retweet a tweet without it being seen as spam by twitter, how many retweets over what period of time (e.g. 1 tweet retweeted 3 x over 2 weeks - just and example) would you recommend?
3. What is the maximum number of tweets you could post in a single day without it being seen as spam? (have seen forums suggesting anything in excess of 10 would be seen as spam by twitter)

Thanks in advance,
I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

In Twitter,

there are often thousands of people who like or heart a post.

Is there any way for me to extract that list?

I was having twitter forward tweets to my cell phone as SMS messages. I signed up for loads of news sites and got a message about 200 messages / day limit...

Then I got the twitter app for IOS and was getting the messages on my lock screen from both twitter and messages. I turned off forward messages to phone.

Then in last couple days, I stopped getting any tweets.

was there an update in ios twitter account?    I went into the twitter app and see a bell with check icon.  (was it there before) checked that and a window labeled account notificiations was set to none. I changed that to all tweets now I get the tweets twice.

how do I only get tweets from only the ios app and showing up on the lock screen on the iphone?
i have went through both api's and it seem like one can access only ones own posts or tweets? so if i want to show in an app my home page facebook posts ( therefore, things that my friends and follower posted ), or my home page twitter posts ( not my own, but those i follow) can't i do it?

am i right? or wrong? even if the user authenticate himself?
I have a follower in Twitter and for some reason when she sends me a direct tweet or likes or retweets my tweets, I do not see any indication of this in my Twitter notifications timeline. This is not just myself, other followers of hers also cannot see any mention of her in their notifications timeline.

This issue occurred recently and she has not made any changes to her settings.
I plant to start a political podcast in the near future, but want to plan ahead so it can be successful.

I have lots of questions...

- What is the ideal length? 1 hour per week? Can it vary in length based on length of the content?

- What are some good ways to promote my podcast?

- Are there any income earning opportunities from a podcast with a lot of listeners?

- What are the listenership for some of the more successful podcasts?

- What kinds of "do's" and "don'ts" are there?

I could plan to apply some budget to promotion. If Facebook the best?

In Java, as per a hashtag or a twitter opportunity,

how can I get a list of users that incorporated / responded to that hashtag / question?

Is it based any criteria, patterns or just mere content of the blocked site which is the reason for blocking .
Hi I am java developer and I need to find out replies count on particular tweet so please help me.
I see people upload pictures onto Yelp and Yelp provides Share links for Facebook and Twitter. But sharing an image URL is not the same as sharing the image itself.

Are those images in the public domain?

I do not see any warnings or requirements for attribution. But I would not use this image unless I learned it was indeed public domain.

Does anyone know?

I have a hosted SharePoint Foundations 2013 site?  Is there any was to add a twitter feed from one of my vendors.  They have a Twitter account where they publish updates and notifications to their software that we use.  This is a SharePoint FOUNDATIONS site, not a on premises or hosted full version of SharePoint.
