Catching Twitter Quitters

There are a lot of apps for Twitter in the marketplace that is being used and every day there are new apps developed. Today, with no exception, I discovered an app that I had not seen before call Qwitter.

For those who do not know about Qwitter, it is a service that emails you every time someone unfollows you on Twitter. This email will display their name and the last tweet that you sent that may have caused the person to unfollow you.

According to Qwitter’s website another advantage of the service is that it helps you identify Twitter spammers and spam bots

The site states: “Whether you are an individual or a business you can use Qwitter to expand your social media analytics.” And if you If you are sad about being unfollowed you can visit their other site called Qwitter Therapy. I am still working on understanding Quitter Therapy. This will be for another day.

The bottom-line is that Twitter is great at telling you when you gain followers, but they never tell you about your unfollowers! Qwitter does all of the dirty work for Twitter.

Of course that is an upgrade to the account if you want more capabilities. The cost is reasonable if you really want the extra service at $4.99 per year.

Get Free Twitter Alerts by Email!

If you love Google Alerts then you will love the Twitter alert service called TweetBeep.  TweetBeep has several options, FREE, which I us, and a premium service you have to pay for.  The FREE version works just fine for me.

TweetBeep is great for keeping track of all conversations that mention you, your brand, your company, and keywords that you specify automatically.

It is easy to get started.  All you have to do is create an account, as always, verify your account from an email that you will review and then you are on your way.

To set up a New Keyword Alert, all you have to do is create your alert using a Keyword or Phrase that you choose, pick the type of alert you want, (#) hash tags, mentions twitter username, determine frequency (in the FREE account there is only chose with is daily). You can use only one keyword or phrase per alert and exclude other keywords that you do not want to see (optional).  I can see where excluding other keyword may be useful for filtering an alert.

This service can be great for your online branding and management of your account by capturing all of your @replies and @mentions.  How about finding job mentions?  This is a nice feature to keep on top of the job in your specialty that may be broadcasted on Twitter first.  Just simply use the same keywords that you may use in a Google search.

As discussed, it all depends on the keywords that you identify to get the best results.  Therefore, you may have to do some trial and error to get what you really want, as the alerts are editable.

I would say give it a try to see how you like it.  Since it is FREE, what harm can it do?

Oh yes, as always there is an option to upgrade your account to TweetBeep Premium.  This service is $20/month where you get 200 alerts, a 15 minute alert option, and no advertisements.
