I’ve just started to use Twollow.com it’s a neat Twitter app. that allows you to auto follow people who mention keywords that you are interested in. If you want to build a community of interest around a certain word, theme or meme then enter the keyword on the site and it will track all Tweets that mention it. You will then auto follow the person who mentioned it.

Beware of using words that are too general otherwise your follower count will go through the roof and Twitter is likely to ban you as a potential spammer. However it’s a useful tool for brand owners who want to build followers who are talking about their company or product.

WebTV DrinkUp 2

Entrepreneur, London, New Media, One Alfred Place, WebTV

We had a great turnout for the 2nd WebTV Group DrinkUp on Feb 18th. About 55 people made it over to One Alfred Place and judging by the noise level everyone was having a great time. As well as welcoming people from the BBC, ITV.com and The Embassy of Finland (!) we also had our first major deal brokered that night. It’s under embargo at the moment but as soon as I can tell you more I will!

Many thanks to Bill Gash for his support on this one and to Sorosh Tavakoli CEO of our drinks sponsors Videoplaza.com. They showed off their online video monetisation system on the in house plasma to much interest. We all enjoyed the Swedish themed lucky business card dip (which I suspect was envisaged in the duty free shop at Stokholm departures lounge when they got snowed in and we had to cancel this the first time!) Congratulations to the winner of the limited edition red sequined bottle of Vodka and the other Swedish goodies in the draw.

Thanks also go to the staff at One Alfred Place who ensured everyone didn’t go without a drink and provided tours and answered questions on the club.

The next one will be in May and if you haven’t joined the group yet click here and you’ll get an invite as soon as we’ve set it all up. Many thanks to everyone who came along and I look forward to welcoming more new faces at the next one.
