Hi from Kathy!

This is the first of "how to increase productivity" tips
for the ordinary blogger. I will post the things that work for me.

Subscribe to my posts (preview) to get all the tips free. I personally "Mine" Twitter.
I'm looking always looking for
freebies, samples, sweepstakes, and other specific information.
Here is an easy way to find that stuff on Twitter.
***Use Keyword Tracking and Email Digest at Tweet Later

I track words (sweepstakes,free,sample,freebie,home school)
I set my Tweet Later to send me an email each day that has a list of
all the Tweets that day that I was looking for!

I can't read every Tweet but I CAN read every Tweet that interests me.
Try tracking "music" or "German Tweets"

Knowledge Is Power:
Set up alerts and track keywords in the public Twitter stream.
We will monitor the Twitter tweet stream and
periodically email you a digest of the tweets
that contain those keywords. It's similar in functionality to the
[defunct] Twitter track feature,
except that alerts are sent in an email digest format.

You can also use this to track your @replies.

Clean Tweet Stream:
Grab your own personal 140-character tweet scheduling engine and RSS feed.
You can schedule and publish tweets that don't go to Twitter
, they go to your personal tweet stream, which is available in RSS, XML and Javascript formats.
Grab this feed and do with it what you desire -- display them on your web site,
get friends or customers to subscribe to your feed,
pull them into another application that sends them to opted-in mobile phones... the sky is the limit.
Be as chatty as you want on Twitter, this personal tweet stream of yours doesn't contain
any of your Twitter tweets. As part of this enhancement, you can also schedule the same
tweet for all or some of your accounts with one click.
Don't Miss A Tweet: Schedule tweets
and keep your Twitter stream ticking over with new tweets
even when you're not in front of your computer.
Publish tweets when your international followers are online and you're asleep.

Courtesy Costs Nothing:

Send automated thank you notes to new followers, and automatically follow new followers,
if you choose to do so. You can also ask us to periodically email you a digest of
the @replies you received.

Put Away Your Credit Card:
Add and manage as many Twitter accounts as you want.
It's free.

TweetLater's keyword tracking and tweet email digest is a very powerful way of mining
the wealth of knowledge that's hidden in the Twitter public tweet stream.
To fully use
this feature to your advantage, use the Power Keyword Wizard that you open by clicking
the button "Open Power Keyword Wizard" on the page where you set up your keyword alerts.

You can even limit the selection of tweets for a specific keyword to a specific language only.
For example, if you want to receive only English tweets, or Dutch tweets, or German tweets, you can do that.
I strongly recommend that you use the Wizard for building any keywords that are more complex than an single-word keyword. It will ensure that your keyword is in the correct format and can be understood by the search engine.
