Promote yourself on Twitter with The Tweeted Times’ new “Promote” feature

with one comment

Quite a lot of people on Twitter choose to post on their professional topics only. They create a community around their Twitter account where they share and discuss news related to their professional interests. The same idea is being practiced by many business accounts: they share and discuss stories on topics relevant to their businesses building up a community. Check out, for example, @zappos, @starbucks and projects like @hadapt and @vertica. There is also a “hybrid” way: “people share links during the day and talk about work, and then go home to tweet about what’s on TV and what we’re doing with our families. It’s a relationship-heavy approach that mixes both the professional and the spice of life tweets.”

We have created ‘Promote’ feature for such Twitter users who build communities of interest on Twitter. Using it, one can boost their Twitter activity by automatically posting important news on a selected topic.

Here is how it works. On, you can create a thematic newspaper on any topic of your interest. Look, for example, at this ‘gamification’-newspaper or this ‘Quora’-newspaper. Your thematic newspaper can be built upon a Twitter search query, or based on a Twitter list, like this newspaper of wine-related Twitter list: The TweetedTimes back-end continuously processes the Twitter stream to pick out the most important news on the selected topic, it creates a newspaper for you where all news are ranked by popularity, and the top story is always one of the most prominent recent news on the topic. So, now you can ask the TweetedTimes to tweet the top story from your thematic newspaper automatically from your account every time when the top story updates. Thus, providing your followers with the most important news on the topic.

Find the new ‘Promote’ feature in the top right corner of any Twitter newspaper.
