With the flood of millions of tweets going across the Twittersphere every several seconds, it is very likely you will not see the tweets of every person you follow.

Two ways to use one Gmail account for more than one Twitter account

How are they getting all these followers, and can you tell if they’re buying them to make themselves look more popular than they really are? Continue Reading →

From The Next Web: Twitter has started rolling out the option to download all your tweets by Martin Bryant

From The Next Web: Twitter has started rolling out the option to download all your tweetsTwitter CEO Dick Costolo has promised in recent months that an option for users to download an archive of all the tweets from their accounts would be available this year. At least for some, this long-awaited feature has arrived – and we’ve had a play with the archive browsing tool.

The first report of the new option that we saw in the wild was from user @Psilosophy, who indicates where the option supposedly can be found for those who have it enabled – at the bottom of your Settings page.

Blog: Mind of a Diva

Jennifer Baker’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jennifer Baker (JB): Mind of a Diva serves as a vessel that’s redefining what it means to be a diva through the life and thoughts of a woman in her twenties. There is so much that we have to deal with as we make the transition from childhood into adulthood, and this is my story along with those of the people around me.

The word Diva has held many meanings, mostly it has described a woman how is bossy and has an attitude. While a diva may have those attributes, she is more than that. A diva is independent, strong, virtuous, and busy. With all of the things that she has going on she maintains her composure and makes it happen.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Mind of a Diva?

JB: I really go off of what’s going on around me with my friends, family, and myself or what I’m thinking about. I also like to pull topics from articles or books that I read that fit into what Mind of a Diva is about.

DCSME: How is Mind of a Diva different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JB: I think that it discusses real issues and thoughts that young women experience. Young Women are not always concerned with celebrity news, social media, and other things that main stream magazines advertise. There needs to be more substance out there and about real topics and issues, and that what Mind of a Diva does.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JB: I love getting out the words and thoughts that I have and putting them out there for the world to read. The most fulfilling part is seeing that someone else relates and understands where I’m coming from when they read my post.

DCSME: How often do you update Mind of a Diva?

JB: I update the site at least two to three times a week. Usually Monday through Friday and sometimes on Saturday.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JB: Mind of a Diva is about everyone woman seeing the power and beauty within herself. I want the website to be a place where women can find post that relate to them and what they are going through.

Blog: Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate

Jackie Swift’s blog is on WordPress.com.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jackie Swift (JS): I blog about writing and books, lifestyle and education; I include poetry, recipes and short stories. It is a wide ranging blog covering the many areas of life I am interested in. There’s (almost) something for everyone!

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I’ve been called Jac the Rat for a few years, as I was born in the Chinese Year of the Rat. It was also the label I used for dress making. I love the word Ephemera, it covers a wide range of sins, which I think links well to the range of topics I cover in my blog. We all love chocolate and we all lie. I am exploring lies and secrets as part of my PhD studies in Literature.

DCSME: How is Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JS: My blog is wide ranging, and deliberately so. I would feel too constrained by one area. There are other such blogs around, but I think my advantage is that I write from both the heart and experience. I try to be positive and life affirming, as well as using humour, which I think sets me apart.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JS: I love the freedom to write what I am passionate about. I like responses from my readers and that my audience is growing all the time. I love writing and this is a great way to explore different topics, as well as refine and develop my writing skills. I love that you know you are being read.

DCSME: How often do you update Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I try to up-date twice a week – Saturday and mid-week. When I’m on holidays I blog more – my head is freer and I have more time, obviously.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JS: I’m completing a novel for my PhD, called Ophelia, watch out for it! I’m finalising a travel e-book for an English publisher. I currently have a collection of short stories available as e-book – entitled Life Happens
