10 Newbie Twitter Mistakes Made By Businesses by Mike Johansson on 03/08/2010 Businesses jumping into social media often see Twitter as a “simple” part of the plan: set up an account and start tweeting. Sadly some even get stuck right after the set up part. Here are 10 mistakes business newbies on Twitter should avoid: 1. Doing Little or Nothing With an estimated 25 to 30 percent of Twitter accounts either empty or “one tweet and done” is it surprising that these accounts generate little interest from others on Twitter? Your inactive or virtually inactive account sends a clear messa...
Twitter Ad Plan: Copy Google by Peter Kafka Posted on February 26, 2010 at 9:04 AM PT What will Twitter long-awaited ad platform look like? Something like Googles. That the general description of Twitters plan, according to people who have been briefed by the company. Here are the very broad strokes: Ads will be tied to Twitter searches, in the same way that Google (GOOG) original ads were. So a search for, say, laptop,may generate an ad for Dell (DELL). The ads will only show up in search results, which means users who dont search for something wont see them in their regular Twitterstream...
A nice milestone for Twitter: It has now passed 50 million tweets per day, up from about 2.5 million per day at the beginning of last year. This is one of Twitter's most important metrics, so it's a good thing that it's still growing rapidly. Because Twitter is a distributed service all over the Web, on desktop clients, mobile apps, etc., "unique visitors" to Twitter.com has always been a somewhat flawed growth metric. (Though it's obviously important for Twitter's user base to continue growing, too.) Here's Twitter's blog post on the achievement, posted by analytics staffer Kevin Weil...

Twitter has just announced Chirp, the first official Twitter developer conference. It will take place at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco, CA, on April 14 and 15.

The conference, which will be keynoted by Twitter’s leadership, including co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams, will be a two-day shindig. The first day will go over subjects such as Oauth, geolocation and business strategies, while the second day will be a 24-hour hack-a-thon for building apps and sharing ideas.

There is actually a great deal of information on the quirky but rather elegant website, such as a teaser for the after party, details on the 24-hour Hack Day schedule and my personal favorite, a secret portal for creating your own Origami Chirp Bird. As a master of the ancient art of paper folding, I really appreciate this easter egg.

Demand will certainly outstrip seats at this conference. Only 800 seats will be available (the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, while gorgeous, is not a large venue for a conference).

The first wave of 100 tickets are now out, but require a little programming on your side — you need to use the API to find the username of user id 6253282 in order to register on Eventbrite. It’ll also put you back $469.

If you can’t attend or don’t manage to snatch up one of the 800 tickets, don’t fret too much — we will be there to cover the entire thing.
