I’m really enjoying Twitter Lists. I know there are a few services out there that do this already, but I like to keep my lists in one place on Twitter.
Twitter Lists are currently in beta, and have been released to a few testers. Note: Some links in this post may only work if you have lists added to your account.
Twitter Lists help you organize and discover new people with similar interests. And since list are created by real users, I’m sure you will find quality twitter accounts to follow.
Some Twitter Lists features include:
- Ability to create up to 20 different lists of Twitter people
- Ability to add people to lists, but not necessary follow them
- Ability to follow other people’s lists
Note: These links only work if you have Lists enabled in your Twitter account.
What is Twestival?
A Twestival or Twitter-Festival is a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world under short timescales, which bring people offline for a great cause. Twestival is run 100% by volunteers and independently from any not-for-profit; although the organizing teams do work closely to outline an achievable and measurable fundraising target. Twestival also sets out to identify key skills of volunteers and match these with the needs of the cause; particularly communications strategy, tech integration and social media training. Twestival Local takes place in cities around the world during September 10-15, 2009.
Last February, Twestival LA raised close to $20,000 for charity:water in just one night and two weeks of planning! It was a night of music, comedy, fun, and meeting new friends, while raising money to help bring clean water to those who need it.

The new Skittles.com redesign is an interesting approach to creating a website. It take social media to the extreme!
Every link you click on leads you to popular social media website. The products page now points to their Wikipedia, their media page takes you to YouTube and Flickr, Chatter takes you to a Skittles Twitter search, and Friends take you to Facebook.
The longer I sit and watch the Twitter search page refresh itself, the more I think this is a bad idea. Any mention of the word “Skittles” on Twitter gets displayed on the website. And since this is a candy company, I think it should be more geared towards children more right?
The website does ask you for your birthdate before you can enter the website. I put in a date that would make me 5 years-old. Since I’m too young, the only thing that gets displayed is “No Way, Jose. Unfortunately you aren’t eligible to visit the site” yet, the Twitter stream still refreshes in the background! A simple fix to this is to display the YouTube page or something else instead. But honestly, I think they’re targeting the wrong audience for their website..
Although Twitter is slowly hitting the mainstream, not everyone knows what Twitter is yet. So the new website would appear quite confusing for a majority of visitors.
These strategies and secrets will transform your business and gro... Read More >
