16 Cool Twitter Tools for Firefox

A lot of people love both Twitter and Firefox. With both having so many plug-ins available it only seems natural that there would be quite a few tools to merge both Twitter and Firefox together. If you’re the type of person that likes flexibility, take a peek at these tools, theres sure to be something that appeals to you.

(As with all Firefox tool lists, we recommend that you don’t install all of these unless you want your browser to move at the speed of a turtle.)

1. DashBlog – DashBlog lets you easily tweet about items you find on the web such as videos, text, quotes, images and more. Also works with Tumblr (Tumblr reviews), WordPress (WordPress reviews) and Blogger (blogger reviews).

2. Friendbar – See your incoming tweets right in the toolbar as well as post updates of your own. Also works with Facebook (Facebook reviews) friends.

Why you lose followers on Twitter

-by Skeeter Hansen and Al Ferretti

Do you wonder why you are losing followers on Twitter?

You might be making mistakes and not even know it.
Here are some of the reasons why your followers on Twitter would leave you:

Automatic Direct Messages
: These things are very annoying, and there is nothing personal about them. For example, “Thanks for following me! Be sure to check out my website!” is considered a spam. What’s worse is when people resend the same message a few days later to tell you the same thing, like one is not enough.

Blasting Tweets: Are you one of those people who send out ten or more posts at once that cover up the entire wall? You need to give others a chance to speak up. When you spam like that, all people see is a wall of your smiley face picture. If you ever wonder why you lose a bunch of followers on Twitter all at once, this could be the biggest reason.

Over Promoting: Do you only post about your website? People will think you are a robot if all you do is talk about your website and tell people to check it out. Try to connect with others by interacting on Twitter. If somebody posts something interesting, then you can talk about it, and share it with your followers.

Proper Follow Up: When people ask you questions through a “@reply” or direct messages, make sure you respond to them. You may have post something interesting that caught their attention. Connect with these people and they may recommend you to their followers later.

Keep It Clean: Many people use twitter at work. Profanity is not something they can afford to have flashing on their computer. Most people will immediately unfollow these types of users.

Just remember, tweet others the way you want to be tweeted.
