One of the most exciting things is the new MillerWords store.

In a recent post at The Social Ms, it explained that the heavy-hitter social influencers use a particular strategy to get the right followers and lots and lots of followers. The Strategy It’s the “follow-unfollow” strategy and it’s in two parts. 1. What this simply means is you follow heavy-hitters in the hope they’ll follow back.

7. Romance Author Adds Book Trailer to Tweets

Donna Thorland, author of the Renegades of the Revolution series from Penguin NAL has taken advantage of Twitter’s new native video platform to promote her latest book.

By uploading a trailer for the book from her phone, she was able to tweet the trailer directly to her audience from within the social network. “I actually repurposed an existing trailer for one of my books to fit the 30 second time frame,” Thorland explained in an email to GalleyCat.

We’ve embedded the tweet below to inspire other authors. Notice the Amazon link in the tweet as well.

The stage is set for a revolution. http://t.co/FM7EcwvFFq pic.twitter.com/ElXiphTPO8

10. Social Media Marketing – When You Need to Hit the Pause Button

Business is no longer 9 to 5 or even 7 to 7. It at times feels like it’s round the clock. The reason? The 24/7 of social media. Keeping your brand in constant visibility, trying to fight through all the other internet noise, and keeping up with communications and networking, can be time consuming and draining. To take a breather, you can put your social media postings and communications

12. Integrate your Social Media and Blog Posts Comments - Must-Know Tips

I read lots of posts from high-quality marketing sites. Doing so, I get lots and lots of information and ideas. When I’m in a rush, I save the link to an article I want to read and go to it when I have time. Well, I just went to an article at Social Media Examiner (SME) titled, “7 Ways to Increase Your Blog’s Social Media Shares” (1) and I have to say it was one of those “Oh Wow” moments.

16. Once You Have Social Network Followers, Then What?

One of my email subscribers asked me about Staged. It’s a social media engagement service that gets you Followers. But, unless you have the budget, it can get expensive since there’s a monthly fee.I’ll call the subscriber John Doe for this article.The other part of John’s question was that although the service did get him a lot of Followers on Twitter, how could he monetize them.The first thing

18. App of the Week: OneShot

Name: OneShot
Platform: iOS
Cost:Free

oneshot logo Imagine that one afternoon after school the teens you work with are hanging out at the library reading articles of personal interest on their iPhones. All of a sudden one of the teens reads something that she has to let others know about. So, she decides she wants to Tweet the link. But, really what she wants to do is highlight one particular sentence in the article for her friends to read. She could copy and paste the text into Twitter, but maybe that makes her Tweet too long to post easily. But then she realizes, I have OneShot on my phone and I can take a screenshot of the part of the article that I want to point out, highlight the text on the screenshot, and then add that image to the Tweet. So, that's what she does.

I think that story highlights that OneShot is a simple idea and a simple app that does one thing really well - allows Twitter users to use screenshots in Tweets and enables highlighting in those screenshots (OneShot also makes it possible to crop screenshots and add a background color). It's one of those apps that before I used it I didn't realize I needed it. I was making due with the tools I had - copy and paste, ordinary screenshots, and so on.

Here is an example of a recent Tweet that I posted using OneShot to highlight a portion of a web page:

At the moment the app only works on iPhones. The developers say that a universal version should be available any day now which means that it will be available for iPad as well. I can see that the iPad version could be very useful for teens and staff who are reading articles and web pages on their personal and/or library provided devices.

I know that OneShot probably seems like just an extra tool that is OK to have but not a necessity. But, if the teens you work with, your colleagues, or yourself take part in Tweeting that includes links to articles and other web content, try it out. I think you'll be happy that you did.
