How to Brand your Tweets with Your
Have you noticed whenever you send out a tweet, it is branded with the Twitter client
you’ve used, to send out that tweet?
Whether you use CoTweet, Hootsuite, Seesmic, Tweetdeck, Twitter’s Web interface, a
mobile Twitter client, or the hundreds of other Twitter clients.. every time you send out a
tweet you are advertising their product.. with a link back to their website,
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could capitalise on this valuable piece of web real estate,
by branding your tweets with your own business’s name.. including a link back to your
own website, blog or Facebook page?
Well.. you can!
And I will show you how..
The guys at MarketMeTweet have created a Twitter client called TweetBrand which
enables you to,
1. Brand your tweets with your own name
2. Insert a link back to your own website
Once you have created a TweetBrand account and logged in.. you will be asked to sign-in
to Twitter and get your consumer key and secret key,
