TwitterFeed: A Real Find

Have you ever wondered how it is that people seem to have so many tweets, from so many different sources? Well, some of these people are tweeting all day long; others are using TwitterFeed.com; and others are doing both!

TwitterFeed.com allows you to link an RSS feed to your Twitter account, so that every time new content is added to that site… it posts a tweet to your Twitter profile. Automatically.

With TwitterFeed.com you can decide how often this happens and how the tweets appear as well.

The obvious and very Big precaution about this is that you must be very careful which feeds you choose to feed your account. If there is content that is very different from what you would normally tweet about, well, it can be a real turnoff for your like-minded followers. It might even appear spammy.

For example, I linked Mashable’s news feed to my Twitter account. There is great stuff on Mashable… but it is general news, and a lot of it is just not interesting to me. (Of course! Not all news is of interest to everyone!) I ended up with tweets about sports events and the latest OS, which are things I would never provide updates on. So I deleted that connection. However, the feed from Seth Godin’s blog is almost always something I would like to share with others.

If you don’t know how to get the RSS feed for a site, I understand your frustration! It took me a long time to figure that one out too. Click here for that tidbit.
