A Twitter Service You’d Be Crazy To Miss Out On

Remember my post on The 10 Stages Of A Twitterer where I basically, tongue in cheek, went through the different stages of life as a twitterer? Well thanks to Stratos of stratos.me I’ve installed a brand new WordPress plugin called Tweetscribe Me. I am so impressed with this plugin that I am actually going to make a small donation to the bloke who developed it as I think it is well deserved.

In a nutshell, what the plugin does is it allows you to get DM’d (that’s a Direct Message) via Twitter every time someone that you have subscribed to, via Tweetscribe Me, publishes a new post. Naturally they also get DM’d eveytime you publish a new post. Can you see the potential? I certainly did which is why I was the first one to test out this great plugin. Now let’s makes something quite clear. This dose not meant that you will get notified every time one of your Twitter followers published a post, heck that would drive me up the wall and I wouldn’t be pushing this plugin at all. Only those that you have subscribed to via Tweetscribe Me will be notified and you don’t even have to be following them on Twitter.

I know that you are probably thinking that this is the same as Tweet My Blog, but it isn’t as that plugin only sends out a general tweet to your followers, who if are not on line generally never get to see it. Tweetscribe Me will email them directly, DM them or both depending how you set it up. There is no way anyone can miss out on updates from any of the bloggers they have subscribed too. This is so much better than RSS readers as once again you have to physically run your RSS reader just to see what folks have been up to.

So, how do you get into the action? Man I am so glad you asked, because this Aussie blogger is just bustin at the seems to let everyone know how they can get instant tweeting gratification. Man, it’s almost better than sex. I did say almost.  :laugh_tb: OK, Just follow the these steps in the order that I’ve presented them. This is very important.

  1. You have to follow twscribe, because if you don’t it won’t work.
  2. Download the Tweetscribe Me plugin and install it to your WordPress Blog.
  3. Activate the plugin and then got to the plugin settings where you fill in your Twitter user name and password and click the save button.
  4. Go to the Tweetscribe Me site and log in, once again with your Twitter details.

That’s all there is to it. Check out the enlisted blogs to find out who else is using the TweetScribe Me and subscribe to those you want to follow. You will be notified when someone subscribes to you and even when they unsubscribe. This is so much better than feedburner and the like because you can actually see who is following you. You can even display the amount of people following you by pasting a code into your sidebar. You can see mine on the right sidebar under the ‘Plug This Blog’ heading

At the moment members are few as this is brand spanking new, so we really need to get folks interested in it.  So I am looking for you guys to join up as this is going to revolutionize the way we utilize Twitter. Tell everyone you know about it so that we can really get this going. The more members we have the greater selection of bloggers to choose from.

    1. Sure Ron, all you have to do is migrate your Blogspot blog to WordPress and you will be set to go.

      1. Yes I will be doing that, but I can’t find suitable and enough time for it. (too busy sched).

        Oh, by the way, Have you received my email?

        Thanks!

        Ron´s Last blog post..Eriuqs Spires Healthy Recreation

        1. Yeah, I know what its like to be too busy to do stuff, that’s for sure, and no I didn’t receive an email from you.

          1. Being busy is a part of my online work.

            Oh, Will email you again.

    I can see the potential for disaster – is the DM to the other blogger a total surprise or does it only work with blogs in the plugins community?

    Dennis Edell´s Last blog post..Article Marketing Made Easy

    1. Well i see your point. To clarify things… The blogs listed on the site are “TweetScribe enabled” meaning they have installed the plugin and want to give their readers the potential of getting notified. Now, to get DM’ed you have to subscribe to a blog. Something like following but with blogs, not users. For instance if you subscribe to my blog and nothing else, you will be DM’ed every time i post not anybody else. To make it more clear, it’s something like RSS subscription but automatic and more “personal”. I would strongly recommend you check out the video tutorial http://tweetscribe.me/home/more

      stratosg´s Last blog post..The big one: TweetScribe.me

      1. Thanks for the follow up, clicking the video now.

        Dennis Edell´s Last blog post..Article Marketing Made Easy

        1. Hey Dennis, I edited the post a bit and hopefully that will clear things up a little.

  3. Cheers Sire going to subscribe my wifes blog seems a pretty good idea. Does it notify your twitter followers with an email or your blog followers who subscribe to your rss feed?

    1. It actually notifies you with a DM if you are subscribed to a blog. For instance, when you add your wife’s blog and i subscribe to it, whenever she posts i will be DM’ed with the title and link to her post.

  4. Nice plugin – installed and subscribed

    1. Hey Ray, I’m following you just so I can keep track of what you are up to.

      1. I’m not up to much really :) In the next week or so I’ll be posting – maybe more than once!

        1. Yeah, I know Ray, you have bigger and more important things to worry about, like a honeymoon and such. Good luck with that mate, I wish you all the best.

          1. Cheers mate. As well as all that, I’m incredibly lazy about posting so posting more than once would be a feat without all the rest :)

            ray´s Last blog post..Moving

          2. Cool, that means only one DM a week. I can handle that. lol

          3. Only problem from a DM point of view is that I wrote the next two posts and stored them in Drafts, Could well be a bumper week this week!

          4. Shit, you mean I will be DM’d twice this week. Now that is way too much ;)

  5. Thank you very much Sire for this review of the service. You are giving me the opportunity to get some valuable exposure and feedback. You rock! ;) Thanks again and i’ll be around to answer any questions…

    1. Hey Stratos, are you kidding? It should be me thanking you, first for the plugin, and then for answering all the comments for me; which makes perfect sense seeing as how being the developer you would know more about how everything works.

  6. Now this is about the most useful Twitter tool I’ve come across yet…it emails your followers which essentially makes it act like a mini-email list :thumbup_tb:

    Caleb (Market Secrets Blogger)´s Last blog post..
    Smart and Safe Backlinking Guide

    1. I know Caleb, and I will be subscribing to you as soon as you join the TweetScribe Me club.

    1. That was easy as I am a regular reader of stratos’ blog and he always comes up with useful blogging tools.

  7. Once I get caught up on a few other things, I’m going to have to try this out. DM’s are definitely more noticed than the average tweet, since they will be around whenever the user logs in.

    Kikolani´s Last blog post..How to Make Social Promotion Easy

    1. I would love for you to Join Kristi, I would subscribe to your blog in an instant. For this to work properly we really need a lot more new members who would in turn ask their friends to join and so on. As you only subscribe to blogs you want to keep track of you won’t be inundated with unwanted DM’s, and who knows what other interesting blogs we may find in the membership area.

  8. This is a very interesting post to me, I will make sure to add your blog to my list of 100 blogs use CommentLiv for my daily comment coffee time :)

    Hesham´s Last blog post..Download eBusiness WP Theme from Elegant Themes

  9. Thanks Hesham, I’m glad you found it so useful. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  10. So this is the plugin that let us twit a post on a blog. I have been wondering where I can get it until now.

    Sarah´s Last blog post..Say No To 9 To 5 – Can You?

  11. Yep, and I it works very well too.

  12. I prefer simply subscribing to rss channels instead of installing new plugins just to get the same result.

    Stancje´s Last blog post..Wrocław 31.05.2009: Mam do wynajęcia

  13. It’s not quite the same as the plugin actually notifies you when the blogger you are following does a new post, which is great if you want to be the first to comment, and being the first to comment has many advantages.


  14. Twitter:
    You know, for a guy I’ve basically had to pull into Twitter kicking and screaming you’re certainly writing a lot about it lately. :lol_tb:

    Seems like it might be neat, but I kind of like how I’m doing it all now. Maybe it’s the speed reading thing, but TweetDeck has just turned out to be so perfect for me that nothing else is needed.
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..June Statistics; The More Things Stay The Same =-.

    1. Actually Mitch I’m just plugging things that I think have potential. I’m still not a great fan, but I can still see the potential and I would be silly not to make use of it.

        1. Don’t forget to tell me about it. What am I saying, of course you’ll tell us about it.
