Useful Twitter Tools: Are You Reaching Your Twitter Follow Limit?

Are you reaching that 2,000 follow limit on Twitter yet? And do you have almost 2,000 Tweeple following you? Or maybe far fewer… As Twitter matures, they have had to set limits on following and followers. One such limit is the 2,000 followed rule.

The current economic climate has everyone looking for new ways to build customer loyalty, get new customers, and keep them all coming back. Teleseminars are a phenomenal tool to accomplish all of these objectives, and more. A friend of mine is a chiropractor, and the other day we were chatting about business-building and business-keeping.

From Shooting Video to Publishing in Minutes, Part 2

As soon as Deb and I got our new Flip Video home, we put it to good use. The video clip you see here is a result of some quick snow footage we took. Here are some of the cool things we were able to do. Combining video segments to make a movie. Merge anything in your library into a single movie (with editing capability), adding title, on-screen credits, and the ability to print a website address. You can even add music from a preset library or external source. Upload the video you’ve created to YouTube, Facebook, AOL, etc. Create…
