I’ve recently discovered an incredible time-saver, and
as a very busy author, I truly need all the help I can get in that department.
chores crossed off the never-ending list. And… that’s only if I’m lucky. I mean
no interruptions, keep my head down all day and work like a crazed fool.
That’s why I do it. But… any time I can find a tool that isn’t too difficult to
understand for my stressed-out brain and it will actually save me time in the
long run – well… you gotta know I’m on it like dead bugs on a windshield.
– had a glass of wine… ahem!
It’s the site I wanted to share.
This tool automatically retweets for you based on certain criteria that you
fill in – like hashtags for example.
how it can be used. I skimmed this quickly but you might want to check it out
my personal handle (@MimiBarbour) and used two hashtags. Then today, I went
back in there and found out they have a lot more to offer than I first
understood. Something that particularly interests me is that I can set up more
than one handle (Twitter account or team). See – I should have spent more time
reading that how-to page….arggg!!
manage, it pleases me to know I can add that one also. In fact, I believe for
the free option, you can have up to10 accounts or they called them Teams.
want Roundteam to retweet more than from just a hashtag, you can set up lists.
Since I have a twitter list set up for all the members of my group, this
particularly interested me. Here’s a U-tube video that’s invaluable for helping you to do this.
Twitter, here’s how:
Go to your home page by either going to
the top left where it says Home or just clicking on your name.
Once there, click on your small photo –
top right of page
When the box opens, click on the word
On the right hand side or down at the very bottom it will say –
Create a new list. Click there and a box will open for you to name it.
Next you want to find the people you
want on that list – so use the search bar for either their name or if you have
it, their handle
Once you’re on their page, click on the little setting wheel next to where it says
Now click on “add or remove from list”
A box will open with all your lists
Tick the box next to the list you want them to be added to
Take another sip of wine…ha!
page on Roundteam, you will see where they have Lists and you can click on the
tick mark and add your new list name there so that all the members on it will
get automatic retweets. Cool eh!!
Again – watch the video because it took me some playing around until I got it right… 🙂
some restrictions for this site which depend on your willingness to pay for its
use. I’ve added that below.
