I've been on Twitter for a while but only log in when I have something to tweet and the time to do it. I've posted 155 tweets to date.
I haven't tried to determine how much traffic it has generated for either my blog or web site.
Yes Juergen, the tweetdeck software makes twitter into a spread sheet style so you can see all the different uses of Twitter. I think you'll understand it better then. If not let me know, I'll try to help explain in more detail.
Twitter is definitely not for everyone. To make twitter effective, you really have to work it. I'm gaining more and more traffic and attention each day because of twitter. It is definitely my new favorite of them all.
V Holecek,, quote "I had a twitter account...I just couldn't be arsed with it. I unloaded it around the same time that I closed up my myspace profile (that's another story altogether...) "
I've been on the net sense Al Gore invented it. I've had three different myspaces (art, music and friends). All three deleted last year. Before that was message boards,, before that was MSN groups. I have a facebook account just for friends and family. I can't keep up with the sites I check on now,,LOL! BTW not throwing off on twitter, It's just not something I have the time to figure out.
I heard YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK and TWITTER were all joining up together...they are calling it "YOU TWIT FACE"

I just posted my first official tweet on Twitter. If someone sees it can you let me know. I added a small file picture with my name on it and added hashtags I think? But not sure if people will see it.
Here is my Twitter: I am working on following you all and if you want you can follow me back.
Hi, have been using Twitter for over a year to promote Our work, some use it effectively, others do not.
Just tweeting, does little more than add your tweet to the millions daily, they need to be seen by those INTERESTED in the topic.
TweetAdder is one of the best ways of getting your tweets seen by those who are interested in the subject of your tweets or artwork, and just does it very effectively.
From time to time in the past few months, have mentioned that we believe that most if not all sales have come from Twitter. So have been asked in private mail, "How did you get so many followers on Twitter?" Rather than answer each person individually, decided to write to the group, as we believe that all sales we have made on Fine Art America, come from our Twitter Followers.
Though Some claim that Twitter is not very good for sales, that's just because they never learned to use it effectively. Just loading your account with all who will follow you, every person who is selling a product, does not mean you will make sales. Did that in the beginning and decided it made no sense, so began searching for twitter addresses or targeting those who like art, artists, photography and in general buyers of artwork.
Targeting your followers with TweetAdder or choosing users interested in art or the art world gets better results. TweetAdder makes that much easier. Then promoting others who are artists with TweetAdder works better, you just add there Tweet address like @GrandCanyonPics to TweetAdder, and it automatically Re-Tweets their Tweets.
You can search for users who follow Store Front Galleries, Museums near your own location or in your state and follow them, most will then follow you. When you support or tweet other artists, it does not mean YOU lose sales to them. Your followers who buy from them, are more interested in that style or type of art, and buy it. However, then those artists in turn tweet or re-tweet your work, and their followers who like your style or media buy from you. So as the saying goes, one hand washes the other, and it dramatically increases sales for all, without any additional work if you are using TweetAdder. You also will find art buyers interested in local artists who happen to be following Museums, etc...
Many use different ways of building their Twitter Accounts. Some pay money to get new followers, but that did not suit me, after trying it. Found it cost me $10 A DAY for a week AND cost me $1 per follower, as I only averaged ten followers per day. It was a one time expense for each ten, and there are no additional benefits. Stumbled across this link about TweetAdder, and decided to try it. Cost LESS for a week, than a week advertising in Facebook, and gained over 36,000 TARGETED followers in one year. for LESS than 70 followers in Facebook. With the ongoing advantage, of still using it today or even years later. It automatically sends about 100 tweets per day *or more depending on settings) including the Re-Tweets... (Bought a copy of TweetAdder with multiple accounts up to five, now am using three accounts in Twitter.)
At the time we purchased TweetAdder, had less than 600 followers. After using it for ONE year, now have Today have over, will 37,873 followers in our combined accounts. Once we had over 15,000 followers, we began getting about 100 new followers per day, from those following those we followed. As the ReTweets or followers do send, brings in more followers.
You can search for users who follow others. With LOTs of Grand Canyon Photos, began searching followers of GrandCanyonNPS, YosemiteNPS, YellowstoneNPS and other National Parks we have photos from. After all, those who go these places, buy Photographs, Books, T-Shirts, Postcards et al, from the Gift shops there. Our photos or paintings are as good or better than those being sold. It gave me thousand of followers who were interested in goings on in the National Parks as well as those who go there. Our photos are different than those sold in the Gift Shops, from different places in the parks, etc. So have built an enthusiastic group of followers using Our Twitter name @GrandCanyonPics The name alone gets many to follow, as they do searches for #grandcanyon
(If this were the only benefit, Id have bought TweetAdder.)
Once you have TweetAdder setup, (and its a quick setup) it saves a lot of time you may be using now. Example, have over almost 600 images, used to spend hours a day, just loading each, then clicking Tweet, to send it. Took maybe five minutes for each one, sometimes more as Im on DialUp speeds... Now, it takes the same time to create one Tweet, add it to Our list in TweetAdder. BUT, once all images had a tweet, that ends the time spent each day manually sending our work via tweets. They re tweeted automatically daily, for as long as we wish to leave them in the list. Fineartamerica tweets are OK, but they are not perfect. You can remove some words and enter #HASHTAGS that will TARGET your tweets, with words twitter users search for: Changing Photograph to #photograph or painting to #paintings and words in the TITLE like Grand Canyon Mather Point to #grandcanyon #matherpoint as a substite. Just do NOT change the link to your artwork. Many days we get over 1000 views the first day, those who visit your page, are potential buyers... TweetAdder in one year sent automatically 31,409 Tweets and Nadines account sent 12,990 Tweets. Saving us a LOT of time.
From then on, only had to create one tweet, for each new image, and they are rotated through the file. In addition to tweets from individual images, also made ones for each gallery.
Included in TweetAdder is also a URL shortener, which takes the very long URL shortens it to about SIX characters. This allows you to use more #hashtags. We also create hashtags with the TITLE of the work. Say the Title is 'Oregon Haystack Pacific Ocean'. We change it to #Oregon #Haystack #Pacific #Ocean, or whatever is appropriate for the image.
We Collect names from National Parks, and follow them, deleting any who did not follow me back in the next seven days. You can remove those who are inactive. This Means you get more followers. For Twitter limits those you follow vs your followers to 2000. BUT, if you always keep your Followers greater than those you follow, you can dramatically increase the number of Followers you have. By deleting those you follow, who do NOT follow you back, you keep it lower than the number of followers. Many are following hundreds who do NOT follow them, this reduces your potential to target those who are more interested in the work you do. When YOU get a list of followers, they can also be sorted, removing those who do not read/write in your language. Many Ive noticed have followers sending tweets in many different languages, other than the one they write tweets in. Which may mean their followers are not able to read their tweets. By removing them, you can add new followers who do understand, and tweet those who do... By unfollowing those with hundreds or tens of thousands of followers, you also get rid of those who never read your tweets, they just do not have the time.
It will also Re-Tweet or resend Tweets of others automatically, like added the Twitter Names of those who promote our work, and plan to add more, so it re-tweets their Tweets to all of our followers.you
Hopefully, this will answer all your your questions that have been asked.
There are a lot of other features in TweetAdder, too many to explain all here.

Good Morning, I am not a fugitive nor a in witness protection nor am I spam so I began to wonder why I was hiding. I have changed my twitter name to my name as appearing at FAA and my user name to workdayblues to sync with my other sites. So, I am no longer red7blue8@red7blue8 but am M Dale@workdayblues. I hope it causes no confusion. Thanks to all followers and have a good holiday.
