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 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?

Thanks

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator
LVL 8
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I recently watched a video on Moz.com, 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,
David

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?

Thanks.

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

Is there any way for me to extract that list?

Thanks

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?

hi
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?

Thanks.

I have integrated a twitter timeline on my website. However I am finding that the image on the twitter timeline are not optimised very well for my website. i.e. They are far too big and affecting my page speed.

Ideally I would like to optimise these images some how with out control of the twitter account so it's good for my site. Is this possible?

If not I would like to remove all images from my timeline. However I can not find an setting for this? https://dev.twitter.com/web/embedded-timelines

Can you please help?

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?

Thanks

My Twitter page (@alandewitt3) has a big photo on top, but I can't get a photo into the little square for the profile picture.
I've checked size and resolution, etc., and I've tried different photos. I can't find any "Help" for Twitter.
Every time I try to upload a profile photo, it seems to work, but doesn't 'stick'. The photo appears, I crop it and position it, and save changes, and then I get a message that it's been successfully saved - but it never appears in the square on the left of the page - it's still blank.

I am looking to display a Twitter feed as simply plain text within our Microsoft 365 Dynamics Portal (essentially ADX Portals) but although I can get the "bog standard" timeline showing using the Embedded code (shown below), it's not what I'm after:

<p><a class="twitter-timeline" data-chrome="noheader nofooter noborders" data-tweet-limit="1" href="https://twitter.com/*UsernameHere*"></a> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p>

Open in new window


I've seen so many different ways of showing the feed via a Bootstrap Carousel but none of the methods I've found appear to be working for me (and need the Twitter ID - which with the new Embedded setup from Twitter - doesn't seem so easy to obtain anymore via Widgets).

All that we are looking to do is to take the feed, remove the images, media, avatar, full name, etc. and simply show the Tweet Text (we will also look to keep the Twitter logo to ensure Display requirements are met). Each tweet should be loaded into it's own slide within the carousel and then we can progress through the last 5 or so tweets (not really fussed about the amount).

Hopefully that makes sense - I don't think it should be that difficult but for some reason I just cannot seem to get it working as I want so any advice is appreciated as always.

Can anyone please point me to architectural documents describing how Twitter implemented its video streaming infrastructure, including CDN (content delivery network), content storage and streaming?

I manage to create Time widget which as you can see in the image perfect but when I add auto load  but when I add the Javascript  to reload this bit and the date and time is loading fine but as shown in second  the tweet feed disappear.

code before ajax

tweet feed disappear
The code of javascript is the following :
<script type="text/javascript" > 
    
    function auto_load(){
        $.ajax({
          url: "index.php",
          cache: false,
          success: function(data){
             $("#auto_load_div").html(data);
          } 
        });
}
 
$(document).ready(function(){
 
auto_load(); //Call auto_load() function when DOM is Ready
 
});
 
//Refresh auto_load() function after 10000 milliseconds
setInterval(auto_load,10000);
    </script>

Open in new window


and the code of the widget would be

 <div id="auto_load_div" > 
              <?php 
             echo "<span   style='color:white; font-weight:bold;'> " . get_sidebar('HTOP')."</span>"; ?>
    
            </div>

Open in new window


do you got another code or idea to refresh the time without effect the tweets ?!!!



-------

my current progress of the situation , that I need way to point from Javascript to sidebar or widgets or .php page on WordPress , I try  the following script

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
	setInterval(function(){
		$("#screen").load('banners.php')
    }, 2000);
});
</script>

Open in new window


so , I would like to replace .load('banners.php') to some code that allowed to pull or understand wordpress language I think .

Dear Experts

All these years we used to depend on digital agency not only for their SEO/SEM/PPC services in additional we also used to pay them for Adwords and social media network campaigns instead we could have direclty paid to google  for adwords and  social network channles direclty ,  the reason is  our finance team did not want to use the credit card hence we asked digital marketing agency to use their adwords account and they bill us and we were paying them similarly for facebook campaigns they used to enter their credit card.
now that I am hearing from experts that it is highly recommended to have our company google adwords account and similarly for the campaigns on face book or other network channels payment directly from the company is highly recommended, we paying the service fees and campaign management fee to the agency is highly recommend is what I am hearing please advice.

Our finance team is worried to provide the credit card details in the adwords account and campaigns in face book or other network channels like twitter and linkedin, because they would like to understand the check points like they should be able to set the monthly limit for adwords and also for face book , twitter and linkedin, beyond to the set limit  for the month additional money should not be used.
please suggest does monthly limit can be set for the following and how
1. google adwords
2. face book
3. twitter
4. linkedin
please support in suggesting in the above requested
