We were genuinely sorry to hear the news that our friendly competitor Twitterfeed would be shutting down on Halloween; in fact, we even wrote them a nice little piece called Requiem for Twitterfeed: why a startup competitor’s loss is a time for grief, and not celebration. Give it a read, we think you’ll like it.
We know that the ability to easily manage and schedule RSS content from blogs — yours as well as others’ — is an incredibly important function in your daily lives and careers, and that it’s a tremendous amount of work to set up. So we can imagine the frustration this transition period must be for you, and we want to make it as painless as possible.
So what follows is a simple 3-step walk-through of getting started with Twibble and adding your first feed. If you want a more detailed 10-step primer with an accompanying video, please click here.
But first, a few quick highlights about Twibble:
Twibble is designed to do three things very well, and very easily:
- Ensure your twitter account is always tweeting interesting, relevant content
- Increase engagement with your followers
- Gain you more followers
Last time, we talked about how you can use Twitter with Twibble, and ended up explaining the logic behind what it means to “get the most” out of Twitter.
Today we’ll go full circle and explain exactly how Twibble works, how to use it, and how Twibble was designed to achieve that aforementioned goal of “getting the most” out of Twitter.
It’s a valid question: how to use Twitter, and more specifically, how to use Twitter with Twibble? But to answer this question requires one to step back and look at the Twitterverse in its entirety, and to understand who uses Twitter; why they use it; and ultimately, how you use Twitter. So let’s start there, shall we?

I remember it like it was yesterday. Setting up my Twitter account and Tweeting that first Tweet on Twitter. It was Friday, September 17, 2010, and it was like magic! I had mostly ignored Twitter previous to this day, but on this day, Twitter became a part of me, and me, a part of it. I dove in head first and was all in!
Mainly inspired by Scott Stratten of UnMarketing, my goal was modest enough, take Twitter by storm, show them who I was and become an overnight social media sensation! Or at a minimum, grow my personal brand enough that I could start public speaking at some of the better-known SEO, SEM, and Content Marketing trade shows and get my name out there. Maybe I was thinking I could go into consulting, and a large Twitter following would catapult me into that career along with a large client list that would be willing to spend thousands of dollars just for my opinion…HA!
Twitter is a curious thing. Over a billion accounts; yet only 250 million active users. A seemingly arbitrary 140 character limit; not quite the 160 of, say, SMS, as pioneered by Nokia in the 1990s. And with seemingly no rhyme or reason to its inexorable news feed flooding you with a veritable cacophony of communication, you wouldn’t be blamed for tossing it aside as little more than an absurd bit of social media excess; the whipped cream heaped atop an otherwise sufficiently fat-laden ice cream sundae.
But you would be wrong. Because, you see, Twitter is more than just whipped cream, a mind bogglingly, face distortingly powerful thing indeed, but only once you familiarize yourself with the following 3 things you need to know to easily master Twitter:
