I like twitter. I can get hypnotised just watching the tweets stream past my eyes. As I type this my main twitter account ‘lazerzap’ has 700 followers. I am currently following about 1700 accounts.

However, I increasingly find myself unfollowing obvious bots. When you see the same message repeated by other accounts continiously. I think its pretty safe to assume that they are bot accounts. So I unfollow them.

I wonder how many bots just have other bots following them? (The real humans deciding ages ago to desert the bot marketing tweets?)

So.. As a result.. I have decided that I will either avoid bots.. Or.. I will make sure that the bot delivery system is so infrequent as to be undetectable among my normal tweets.

I think that would be good advise to any bot marketing operator. Make sure that the frequency of your bot tweets aren’t too intrusive or you run the risk of being mass unfollowed.

But that is just my opinion. :)

The above poll results may or may not support my opinion. :)

I setup a twitter auto follow script at 1noob.com.

Feel free to use it as much as you like.

Twitterfeed and Digsby ROCK! Twitterfeed is now “Feeding Twitter” my Blog. So every entry in my Blog gets sent as a “Tweet”. Toooooo Kewl….

If you haven’t setup Twitterfeed for your Blog. I strongly suggest that you do.

Coupled with a IM/Twitter reader.. Like.. Um.. Digsby.

Life is WONDERFUL!

:)

Digsby is an IM program. It interfaces with MSN, YAHOO, ICQ, AIM, TWITTER, FACEBOOK and others..

You can have MULTIPLE accounts from each group logged in at the same time.

Digsby interfaces with Twitter so that you can keep up with tweets.

Digsy also provides a widget for your website/Blog that enables you to send and receive IM’s to/from visitors to your site.

Setup Twitterfeed on your Blog. Setup Digsby to participate in Twitter and get IM’s from your webpages.

Example:

BTW: I am not financially related in any way to either of these companies.
