Isn’t Twitcam a piece of cake?
- Connect your webcam
- Login with Twitter
- Click the broadcast button
- The app posts your video description and link to Twitter for all your followers to see.
- While broadcasting, chat with your viewers via Twitter right from your broadcast page.
- Once you’re done going live, your video is archived and available on the same page.
Is there a position into a single tweet with higher click rates? Which is the most efficient position of the link in the 140 characters of a single tweet? The aim, of course, is to get the most clicks.
Dan Zarrella did a research on “200,000, random, bit.ly-link-containing Tweets”. Here’s the result:
CTR means click-through rate, which is the number of clicks divided by the number of impressions.
So, the best place for the link is about 25% of the way through the Tweet.
I’m looking forward further analysis on this =)
Let’s say you’re setting up some kind of event and you want to show a live Twitter stream. Let’s say you don’t have time to develop your own solution, you just have a cool hashtag. What do you do?
First of all you may think if it’s a good idea.
I’d take the risk. I’d use Twitterfall because it allows a good combination of lists, searches, geolocation and exclusions. It also lets you decide speed and size of the falling tweets.
Need a previous moderation? You can also use TweetChat, a service with log-in authentication which allows to block spammers and undesired messages.
- Monitter – a real time Twitter search tool that enables you to monitor a set of keywords on Twitter.
- Gigatweet – displays the number of tweets since inception of Twitter and offers data by keyword.
