10 Places to Find Things to Tweet
Where do they get the time to scour the web for things to post on their profiles.
Here is a list of some of the sites they use:
One of my favorite places to find popular topics.
Stuff to tweet
Similar to Alltop and Popurls. Stuff to Tweet gathers links to the most popular topics and puts them all in one place for easy access.
Delicious is my bookmarking sight of choice. I use an add-on called Packrati.us to automatically save links I tweet. Doing this saves a step and guarantees I don’t forget to save an interesting tid-bit of information.
The recent makeover of Digg made it a much more usable site again. It can be a great site to surf through and find interesting articles and sites.
Reddit can take a little bit of getting used to. I say this because of the comments. Reddit is a very conversational bookmarking site. It is more like the comment section of a blog.
Popurls is a great one-stop shop for popular links. It has more commonly visited sites and Alltop and Stuff to Tweet right out of the box. You also have the option to customize the sites displayed.
Mister Wong’s is a more graphical social bookmarking site than a site like Delicious. It
Stumbleupon is a fantastic site for finding randomness on the web. When signing up for an account, you can select categories of interest like business or photography. When you click the Stumble button on the site or in the downloadable toolbar, you are taken to random sites fitting into the categories you chose. I have found some great photography this way.
Google Reader is one of my most heavily used sources for things to tweet. I have quite a few sites ranging from very popular to industry specific. While reading a great article, I can either tweet the link right from Google Reader or paste it to an app like Hootsuite or Tweetdeck and schedule it for later.
Google, Yahoo, CNN, NYT… are all great ways to both keep informed on what is happening in the world and to find interesting articles to share.
I hope this gives you a few more sources to keep your followers interested in what you have to say. Leave a comment with your best spot to get links to tweet.
