I haven't used Twitter but keep seeing it mentioned in the social media community. And a couple weeks ago, I attended a short course in which Twitter was mentioned as a tool for job hunting (in addition to LinkedIn). So now I am considering creating an account and trying it out. But first I have several questions: How is Twitter any different from simply emailing a person, or getting their Facebook updates (you still have to connect with those contacts beforehand)? Even if I was the first person to discover something interesting (e.g. - Russian tanks in my backyard coming …

Brands today popup and they go. This is because the attention span of the average consumer is far less than it has ever been. It is also because there is so much clutter in the media and digital space, that it is difficult to stand out easily. Big, traditional brands, that we have encountered and used for decades have closed down for various reasons. We are all familiar with Pan Am, Nokia, Enron, all of which have closed down for various reasons. We now know tons of brands in the digital age as well, some of which have grown tremendously …

How to manage social media? I can't actually create or manage the accounts. When I'm trying to login to my Twitter or Facebook account, they are asking to [create a connection](https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543537-Connecting-social-accounts) between them. And the users wouldn't visit site anyway. The number of followers and friends is quite low. How should I engage with the audience? Thanks.

I was just wondering if anybody here on daniweb has any experience of writing twitterbots, for things like, for instance, looking through tweets for keywords and then submitting a link to your own profile when you find an advert that interests you or something like that. I, perhaps naively, never heard of twetterbots till a few months ago, and now I'm quite curious because I hear more and more about that on a regular basis. What sort of scripting language are they written in?

Is there a way (perhaps through Twitter's API / official stats, etc.) to see a daily graph of how many tweets linked to my domain?

Hi Everyone! I have been analysing and watching my Twitter account (the actions and activities of my followers) and I have noticed a steady decline and a massive turning away from Twitter into Pinterest, Google Plus and Instagram. I still get acitivity and traffic from Twitter, but it is by no means the volume I used to get. Twitter used to be my main source of traffic, it is no longer. Has anybody noticed the same thing or is it something particular to my niche? Thank you!

I finally registered for a Twitter account and just added it to my Daniweb Profile. At first, I tried to add the full URL, but an error message popped up stating only letters, numbers, and underscores were allowed. So I changed the field entry to my username only (not even the @ sign.) It was then accepted. In the Google Plus field, the complete URL is entered, and is behaving as expected. In the LinkedIn field, the complete URL is entered, and I believe it is behaving as it should. It seems inconsistent that some fields accept the complete URL …

Hello, I have a website that uses the user timeline widget from Twitter. A couple of days ago, it stopped displaying the widget and instead just shows "tweets from @username". I haven't changed and javascripts or anything, so I'm not sure whats changed. The error console says [code]TypeError: t is not a constructor Line 1 Widget.js[/code] I've logged back into the Twitter dev control pannel and the widget preview is working fine. I even tried rebuilding and recopying the code, to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to put a "Twitter Follow Button" on a windows form application? Usually I have this code on a ASP.net webform. <a href="https://twitter.com/_TwitterName" class="twitter-follow-button" data-show-count="false" data-show-screen-name="false"></a><script> !function (d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (!d.getElementById(id)) { js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); } } (document, "script", "twitter-wjs");</script>

The hacker collective known as Anonymous first declared war on Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS) supporters back in the Summer of 2014 with [Operation NO2ISIS](http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasperhamill/2014/06/27/anonymous-hacktivists-prepare-for-strike-against-isis-supporters/) which promised to target the online infrastructure of those countries sponsoring Islamic State militants. This declaration followed the hacking of an Anonymous Twitter account, @TheAnonMessage, which was then used to post photos of a terrorist assault near Baghdad. At the time, an Anonymous spokesperson stated that "these savages who have no religion or morality are bent on burning everything in their path, killing and pillaging as they go. They must be stopped." Because Islamic …

It's the festive season but would you really expect Lady Gaga to give you a free iPad 2? That was the exact message being broadcast from Lady Gaga's Twitter account earlier, promising each and every one of her 17 million followers an iPad 2 and all they had to do was click the link for details. [ATTACH=RIGHT]23296[/ATTACH]Of course, there was no iPad. The Lady Gaga Twitter account had been hacked and if you clicked on that link it would take you to a number of different sites via redirects and then dump you at a survey designed to scam you …

There is no doubt that SEO is an important part of the online marketing machine. Lest we forget, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and only a fool would imagine that they could do business online without being indexed by the Gods of Search (Google, Bing, Yahoo!) However, there is more to marketing your business than making it search engine friendly; and blowing your entire marketing budget on SEO could prove a costly mistake. Traditionally, marketing your business (any business) has involved understanding who your customers are and how they think and feel. This is no different in the Internet …

I (finally) signed up for a Twitter account and am spending some time to customize my Profile. A few free services have been mentioned that provide this functionality: add URLs, change pattern, add LinkedIn URL, etc. -- basically, a template that prompts users to input their info and then outputs a fancier Twitter Profile than the basic one. Some people's profiles are very nice. However, the ones I have checked out are either gone or not very good. Can anybody recommend services and/or tools for customizing a Twitter Profile? If you have a Twitter account, what tools did you use …

There can be no denying the impact that social media has had on business, you only have to look at the reach it has: well over a billion people between Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn subscribers. What's more, there is no sign of the social media bubble bursting just yet. ![socmedtutorial](/attachments/small/0/socmedtutorial.jpg "align-right") However, social media is actually much more than just a numbers game and in order for any marketing campaign to succeed then businesses simply have to understand how to embrace it properly. Indeed, the potential for extending the reach of your business and your brand has never been bigger. …

Some years ago, I built in my CMS a customisable twitter widget, for embedded use in web pages. This stopped working since twitter yanked out support last week. The new timeline widget misses the autoscroll option, but I can live with that. But it sadly creates several cascading iframes (iframe><iframe></iframe></iframe>), so I need a method to tweak font sizes, colors etcetera in the iframes created by twitter. so far I have come up with this: function tweakstyle() { var iframe = top.frames[0].frames[0].document; // this is the line that generates the cross domain error var otherhead = iframe.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]; var ilink = …

It's an interesting question, and one that's being raised by Gartner which is predicting that [URL="http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=1392716"]the number of wireless e-mail users will reach an incredible one billion[/URL], worldwide, by the end of 2014. A number that's not too hard to accept, given that earlier this year global business wireless e-mail accounts were being estimated in the region of 80 million, and that's equivalent to around 60 million individual users. [attach]15686[/attach]Monica Basso, research vice president at Gartner, points to how the productivity gains achieved with using wireless e-mail are driving adoption beyond the purely executive reach and reveals that "in 2010, …

Twitter is one of the most popular social networking sites. Twitter is a useful platform for increasing web traffic, because it is a link-based service. Many links should lead the reader right to your website. There are some guidelines to achieving success with guiding Twitter users to your website, including many subtle approaches to web promotion. can you tell me how to use Twitter to increase web traffic.

I'm using Twitter bootstrap 2.0.4 for a website. I have a carousel with a certain number of pictures, which gets created just fine. It starts cycling, the pausing on hovering works, the next and previous buttons all work. Only thing that's odd is that when it reaches the end of the images it doesn't loop back to the first one, it just disappears all of the sudden. Looked all over, but can't find what I am doing wrong. <div id="myCarousel" class="carousel slide"> <!-- Carousel items --> <div class="carousel-inner"> <div class="active item"> ... </div> <div class="item"> ... </div> ... <!-- Carousel …

That's the surprising consensus reached at a meeting of 30 CSOs representing some of the UK's leading enterprises held in London during the past week. This despite a poll at the bi-annual [URL="http://www.csointerchange.org"]CSO Interchange[/URL] event revealing that those same CSOs view social networking as the most over-hyped threat. When it came to the round table discussions on the subject of social networking, however, the gathered CSOs expressed what has been called a "strong preference" for companies to consider banning them all. Well, almost all, as LinkedIn gets an exception as most of the CSOs considered that acceptable. Could that possibly …

Hi All, I've been helping a friend with a site that he's been designing with godaddy.com. It's pretty cool and easy to do with their templates and all but their like buttons are troublesome and I was hoping to get some knowledge about this from here. Lets say there are 3 different videos linking to youtube and lets say that I have 3 Facebook and Twitter "like" buttons. How can I make it so that if a user presses the twitter like button that the window pops up saying something like "Watching Drezus' Big Dreams"? As it is, if one …
