Welcome to The Great Big Twitter Experiment!
This is not at all a joke. And this is not even remotely some amateur ploy to gain traffic and/or backlinks even if some of that does occur.
As many visitors have already seen in 2 previous articles titled, A Quick Jaunt Into Data Mining on Twitter and Further Exploitation via Data Mining Twitter, I'm quite serious about discovering some of the cooler, unexplored possibilities with Twitter. And I'm glad to share most of what I find because, frankly, I've got so many ways of making money on the web that it's almost boring.
And what I really want is to sorta give people a bit of a jolt by showing them some neat ways of using (and combining) FREE services for some completely unexpected revelations. And for that, your very simple contribution can be of immense help.
So Today's Experiment Is...
My Evil Assistant
All participants will be doing are a couple of activities that they are already doing anyways, just in other venues; and so, that I can get some decent data through Twitter AND so others passing through may learn, as well, I would like YOU to help me with the following tasks:
Post a comment below explaining precisely how you arrived. If it was by search engine, include the keyword phrase you used. If it was by one of my Twitter messages, you can just say "Twitter" (and optionally include the tweet). If you are on my email news list, you can just say so. Or if you floated in from my newsfeed, well... by now, you know the routine.
At LEAST once, but preferably several times, make a TWEET on Twitter referring to "Sam Freedom's Big Twitter Experiment" with a link to this article. In other words, tell your followers to come see (and hopefully participate in) the experiment. Using the actual URL is preferable but a TinyURL will be fine.
OPTIONAL: Link to this article on your blog. It doesn't have to be forever but even for just a little while.
paste this into your twitter shout box
In the very least, PLEASE tell us below how you got to this article AND what about what you saw made you come here?
I want to show you some of the latent power in Twitter - the stuff that might not be readily available elsewhere.
Other than one of the most awkward tweets I've yet to spy...
Please participate. Thank you.
