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”.
