Tweepi.com- Poweful twitter tool

tweepi-logo

Tweepi has 4 tools so far, with more to come:

1. Geeky Follow Utility: follow active and sociable users with the same interests as yourself

There are too many people out there using Twitter for an infinite variety of reasons and to share a wide collection of topics ranging from business, to cooking, dancing, technology and so on. The most common way to find and add people with the same interests as you, is to find a popular tweeple within your area of interest, say “@mashable” or “@techcrunch” for technology news, and add people who follow these known users.

This tool helps you filter these people – the geeky way, with numbers in a table – based on their activity and sociability, and follow only quality twitterers.

2. Geeky Flush Utility: teach users who do not follow you back a lesson by unfollowing them

Many users on Twitter feel that if a user does not follow them back, it’s somehow insulting. This utility is designed to “teach those users a lesson by unfollowing them” with just a few clicks.

3. Geeky Reciprocate Utility: follow your followers back with a few clicks

It takes a really long time to find all the users you’re not following on Twitter and then following each one back individually! This tool helps you find all the users that follow you, but you do not follow back, and enables you to follow them back with a click of a button.

4. Geeky Cleanup Utility: filter deadbeat (and useless) tweeples and unfollow them

So, you’re following a few thousand people on Twitter. You must have noticed that many of these users do not engage in conversations, never retweet anybody, or simply just ramble about nonsense stuff all day long (no links to useful content whatsoever!). You can use Tweepi’s geeky cleanup tool to filter these people out and unfollow them.

Geeky Cleanup enables you to clean-up and unfollow annoying tweeples. It lists the users you’re following with information about each, and you can just pick whom to unfollow from the list!

Why do we call it “geeky”?

Tweepi Presets helps you pick better tweeps Tweepi Presets help you pick better tweeps 

That’s simple. I built Tweepi the way I would prefer other services to work – with numbers. I like to know how many tweets a person sent the last week, how many RT’s he made/received, and so on. The list of numbers that I was able to think of and was implemented in Tweepi.com is:

  • Followers
  • Following
  • Updates
  • Tweets last 1 week *
  • Replies sent by user *
  • RTs done *
  • Links tweeted *
  • Replies received *
  • Times retweeted by others *
  • [replies sent] to [replies received] ratio *
  • [followers] to [following] ratio *
  • Links tweeted ratio *

The (*) means that they are limited to the last 7 days.

Of course you can sort the table anyway you want, customize what columns are hidden/shown or use one of the presets to order people by: activity last 7 days, reach/influence (RT and get RT’ed much), twitterers who discuss much (compare replies), higher followers to following ratio or avoid linkless ramblings!

Why Tweepi is a bit geeky? Because it shows numbers! Why Tweepi is a bit geeky? Because it shows numbers – not just blind suggestions! 

How to use Tweepi?

I added some tool tips around the site to help explain how some of the features work. Each of the presets is explained in a tool tip, as well as how to select multiple users. Just hover your mouse above the relevant text. A “Frequently Asked Questions”/FAQ section will be added soon.

 Tweepi is in, as we like to call it “very much a beta” mode. You might find small bugs around the system, and we’d appreciate it if you’d report them to us using the “Feedback” button to the right of all pages of Tweepi.com.

Twitter – forbidden passwords

Below this text is a list of passwords not accepted by Twitter in their signup process. The list is copied from the HTML source at https://twitter.com/signup. You might call it the flip side of a dictionary attack, a list of common passwords that they won’t let you use, perhaps because they detected attacks trying to hack accounts with these passwords.

They’re not the only bad passwords out there, but you’d probably do well to avoid all these for other services as well.

Auto retweet with yahoo pipes

Recently I was provoked by a thought of retweeting a tweet by some particular tweeter automatically, and thus begun my search for such a tool or web app. To my surprice I could not find any instead I stumbled upon how to use yahoo pipes to do that.
The way i did it was as follows
Instead of creating my own pipe from scratch I used clean twitter feed pipe and edited it to my convinience.

Firstly You need to have key word.
I took it as Guykawasaki
so for me the feed url would be
http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=guykawasaki as I wanted to retweet all posts by Guykawasaki

1. Add a fetch feed box and enter the url in it.

2. Next add a Regex boc to filter our the unwanted content based on regular expressions

3. Then add a filter funtion to perform filtering on basis of the above expressions

4. Connect the pipes and you are done.

steps to pipe

Now we goto the properties of the pipe and click run it. Once we are on the results page which looks like this.
link to run

Here what is of important to us is the RSS of this pipe. Clicking it gives us the RSS link of the pipe and we are almost done.

pipe run
Now what we need to do is just use twitterfeed to automatically post the updates to the required twitter account.
If unknown to twitterfeed see how to do it here.

Twitter Tools and Scripts

Have you ever wonder why some company starts following you as soon you are mentioning it’s name on Twitter? Or some user instantly follows you back if you start following to his tweets? These are techniques used by many to gain popularity on Twitter.

If you also want to use some Auto follow techniques this list of free available tools may help you.

Tools:

Hummingbird – Very powerful marketing tool for Twitter

Twollow – it auto-follows everyone that mentions your specified keywords on Twitter.

TweerLater – many interesting automated features including auto-follow/auto-unfollow.

SocialToo – Auto-following and auto-following filter together – interesting! Works for Facebook too.

Scripts:

christopherspenn.com – PHP script that auto-follows anyone that follows you.

staynalive.com – script does exactly the same thing that previous – follows anyone that follows you.

raduboncea.ro – same script in python together with direct message to those that follow you.

Twiiter now with Geotagging

In August Twitter announced that they were working on a new API that would provide developers with the ability to geotag tweets. The Geotagging API is officially available now.

The latest release is unique in that it’s API-only which means you won’t see any changes on twitter.com, yet. Instead, Twitter applications like Birdfeed, Seesmic Web, Foursquare, Gowalla, Twidroid, Twittelator Pro and others are already supporting this new functionality (go try them out now!) in interesting ways that include geotagging your tweets and displaying the location from where a tweet was posted. The added information provides valuable context when reading your friends tweets and allows you to better focus in on local conversations. Now you can find out what live music is playing right now in your neighborhood or what people visiting Checkpoint Charlie are saying today about the anniversary of the Berlin Wall. These are only the beginning and we are really looking forward to seeing the creative uses emerge from the developer community.

It’s important to note geotagging is disabled by default for all users which means you will need to opt-in in order to use it. To activate the new geotagging functionality, go to your Settings page and click “Enable Geotagging”.
