Many people are trying to figure out just why Twitter is useful. Twitter is a micro bloging system where each post is 140 characters that let’s your friends (and the rest of the world) know what you are up to at a given moment in time. It’s like text messaging on steroids.
There are many applications that take advantage of Twitters API and aggragates information. Twist http://twist.flaptor.com/ helps you to sort through what is being posted on Twitter, which can be quite useful for your marketing. Let’s say I am preparing to write a Real Estate Blog post and I want to know what other people are talking about. I go to Twist, enter in real estate and graph on the popularity of the term.
http://twist.flaptor.com/?gram=real+estate+&table=0 – the graph shows me the highs and lows for the week (you can also select month or all data).
I can then click the link and see what people are talking about in Real Estate
I now know that a blog post about real estate values and various commercial deals will be well received – as they are popular topics at the moment.
Give it a try 🙂
