Doing comments first on Twitter with Twickie

OK, so, what is the tool I was using earlier in the evening to get lots of responses from my Twitter followers and copy and paste them into my blog? Chris Pirillo’s Twickie.

How does it work?

I ask a question on Twitter.

People respond.

I log into Twickie. It lets me see the tweets I’ve posted. I click on a down arrow to see all responses.

I copy the HTML out of Twickie and I paste it into my blog editor’s HTML mode.

Real easy. Free. And demonstrates how you can use a crowd to do research.

Earlier tonight Chris told me it lets him write blog posts “backward.” See in the old world we’d write our opinions, then you’d comment. In Pirillo’s world you comment first, then he writes his blog post.

It’s a weird world and it’s Friday night, so I went with it and was amazed at the responses I got in just a few short minutes.

Thank you for participating. I’ll try other questions soon, I don’t want to overdo it.

  1. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn’t automatically capture the actual tweet itself. If I were designing v2, I would add the originating tweet, and show replies as nested (or a smaller size). But it just works. Copy HTML, Paste. Post.

  3. Louis, yeah – it’ll take a bit more logic to do that, as the user may not want the original tweet in the thread. I had to stop myself from adding features on this one before it was released. :)

  5. I kind of wish you could use this, but for a search query. Like, if you wanted to see all the tweets about a subject, or a hashtag, if you use them.

  7. Service is really nice and useful. However i found that it’s not accurate. It is not giving me the exact conversion details. I tried to get my conversion with al3x and it is not giving me accurate tweets of those conversation. I guess one can use twitter search to get conversion, however it wont give the ability to extract them ;)

  11. You should go all video-blogging.

    Written blog irrelevance increases in proportion to posting frequency.

    Otherwise, great interviews: you capture the still-very-present excitement that is the ever-expanding bubble of technological progress and development.

    Cheers.

  13. I like this a tool a lot. I’m a big fan of generating blog posts from Twitter conversations, both spontaneous and planned (ask an open question.) It is a big difficult to define a conversation though. Look at the following discussion I had on sharing OPMLs:

    http://search.twitter.com/search?q=+OPML+OR+opmls+from:daveferrick

    While it’s one discussion that happened in a short time period, t’s comprised of 4 “conversations”, through @ replying and retweeting. Is there a way to bind these conversations without relying on a hash tag? A time span constraint?

    Since when is copy-pasting HTML code real easy? Yeh in the 90′s it was.
    Sounds a bit old fashioned really.

  19. New words

    Tweetybirds – obsessive Twitter posters who “tweet” every mundane detail and thought in their lives.

    Sylvesters – “cats” who don’t “get” Tweetybirds. Usually non-Twitter-using pundits or tech fogeys.

    Cranes – followers constantly checking for any Tweetybirds’ latest tweets.

  21. Thanks for the tip on this tool. I use Tweetdeck as I can organize and group other tweeters and it turns what is often chaos into order. It provides a separate column for ‘replies’, so I can see answers to questions. (This ain’t an ad for tweetdeck!) I’ll give Twickie a try as it seems to be comparable.

    Anything that can organize tweets to support a workflow will be great for me!
