  •  Were you aware there is already a DKos TWEETers (4+ / 0-)

    group?

    I created it for Kossacks who are already on Twitter to learn more about how to use Twitter and to help coordinate kossack Tweeters for Rapid Response actions. Also to help kossacks find each other on the Twitter....

    Here's the intro diary, New Group - DKos TWEETers

    There a How To diary on embedding Tweets Saturday Night Skills Building

    I have a diary just posting, regarding the current Twitter hullabaloo on @140elect.com and #UniteBlue. I hope anyone who drops in here will go read it. #Unite Blue on Twitter. What's the controvesy all about?. I hope everyone who drops in here will go read it and leave a question for #TeamGreen.

    I'm interviewing the Father-Son team of Adam and Zach Green of @140Dev.com (who created @140elect.com & #UniteBlue) this week and I am asking the community to share any questions they might have for this team with me in preparation for my interview.

    Will you be doing the #kt2 diary as a regular feature?

        I suggest you (although it is time consuming) go to your profile and then to those you are Following on Twitter.

        Scroll down until you see the message "Back to Top". That means you are at the oldest Tweeter whom you first followed (they are in chronological order from the bottom up).

        Now comes the time consuming part.

        Click once on the first Tweeter UserID/Name. It'll pop up.

        I look to see if:

        1) it's a news-oriented link
        2) it's a Kossack
        3) if they are following me back

        If none of those is true, then I look at the Tweets last posted by this user and decide if I want to continue following or not.

        Mostly this is useful to find accounts I am following which have been abandoned or gone dormant for more than six months. Even if they are 'following me', if they are no longer using the account, and I unfollow them, there is a better than even-odds that account will continue to 'follow'  me.

        I want to follow those who are active, to generate a bigger spread of info via Twitter. There is no point in following 'dead' accounts.

        I've been able to clear out hundreds of older accounts I no longer want to follow, which allows me to continue adding new Tweeters to my Following List.

        Hope this helps!
