Automatic Updates to Twitter

Edit Author Bio ScreenshotNow EzineArticles can automatically syndicate your new articles into your Twitter account so every time we accept a new article submission of yours, it’s automatically updated on your Twitter profile.

Here’s How You Do It:

  1. Log in to your EzineArticles Account
  2. Select Profile Manager from the Author’s Area navigation bar
  3. Select Edit Author Bio from the Profile Manager drop down menu
  4. Select the “Author Name” for the bio you want to edit (ie: Your name)
  5. Enter your Twitter Username and Password
  6. Click Save Changes

The automatic update to your Twitter page will look like this:
Article Title: EzineArticles URL

Be sure to Follow EzineArticles on Twitter as we often give micro-status-updates often.

I’ve been noticing Twitter for a while now but have hesitated signing up. I’m interested in business networking and it doesn’t seem to fill that function. Am I wrong?

Hi Edward, I am sure no expert, but the people in my group do a terrific job of promoting themselves and their interests. If you are able to sign into twitter and find me, look at the list of people I follow (including Chris Knight) and check them out. The ingenuity of their marketing and business networking talents amazes me!

The first few times I looked at tweets I felt as you do, but there’s some hot stuff going on there.

1) IMPORTANT NOTE TO TWITTER NEWBIES:

Before you engage this automatic EzineArticles -> Twitter syndication module; be sure to legitimize your Twitter profile by UPLOADING your photo and fill out your Twitter profile.

Only takes 1-2 minutes and legitimizes you on Twitter.

I’m seeing way too many Twitter newbies not uploading their twitter photo or profile.

You’re here to build personal credibility, right?

2) You can track updates to Twitter here:
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=EzineArticles

3) Updated Note: Automatic EzineArticles->Twitter updates will only work for *NEW* articles and will not work for OLD articles that have been edited. This is done on purpose to help our members keep trust with their Twitter-followership.

I thought Twitter is not good to spend time on. Now with ezine updating our articles, I am ready to create a twitter account now.

I highly recommend Twitter! Coming from an email marketing coach that’s telling you a lot.

Think of it this way – the more fishing lines in the pond, the better your chances of catching that fish!

Chris, this is a great facility and I think Twitter provides good value for minimum effort. Every time I do a Twitter post, I end up with at least one more follower (building my list on another forum!).

Also I found that a recent Twitter comment about a Squidoo lens I was going to build ended up in the Top 10 Google results for my targeted niche keyword. Then the lens took no.1 spot.

I think that commenting about your lenses, websites and blogs on Twitter adds SEO value. Twitter has a very high PR. Twitter hyperlinks your URLs for you, so it is all too easy.

All,

I’m ok if you want to self-promote your Twitter profile in a blog comment for this thread.

Hey – for anyone on a mac…be sure to use twitterific. It allows you to post and receive “tweets” from twitter without having to use your browser. You can tuck it away or hide it and it will make a “tweet” noise when a new twitter post comes in or you can have it pop in when one does. Or you can just keep it up in a corner or in one of your work spaces if you have leopard. I LOVE it. It makes it so much easier to use twitter.

I’m sure there is a PC alternative – I just don’t know what it is. Hope to see your article posts over in twitterland! Feel free to follow me:

I’m interested to see if having automatic posts to Twitter will add even more value to Ezine.

What happens if you have different author names for different niches, and you don’t want them all blasted to Twitter? Is that upcoming functionality?

All in all, great idea though.

I don’t know if I could keep up with even more contacts. Who said Internet Marketing is difficult?!

I love it!

Brandon,

We already give you the ability to have ONE Twitter account linked up to EACH Profile (Alt-Author) in your account.

Fact: 18 members already have more than Twitter account setup in their EzineArticles account.
