How can I get the Twitter app to remain where I left off in the timeline?

Episode 1136

Steve from Studio City, CA
Tweetbot

Steve uses Twitter, but on his tablet, the app refreshes the page at inconvenient times. So he ends up using Safari to prevent it. Leo suggests using a third party app like TweetBot by Tapbots instead. Tweetbot is easily the best twitter out there and sadly, it's not available on Android. Leo also says that social media is easily the best way to market, especially for artists.

Check out Steve's movie, "Fear" on Facebook.

Users Take to Twitter in Wake of Napa Earthquake

Episode 1112

Earthquake

At about 3 am Sunday morning, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck Northern California. Leo awoke from his bed and immediately went to Twitter, where he found tons of breaking news. Leo says that if you want to know what has happened, Twitter is the place to go. CNN didn't announce the news of the earthquake until 40 minutes later, while Twitter had the magnitude, epicenter, and other details within a few minutes. Leo says that Twitter is great for breaking news because you get details practically as they happened from people who are witnessing it. It's like the first draft of history.

Episode 1110

Twitter on iPhone

Thailand's National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission inadvertently tweeted its approval of two new iPhone models for sale later this year. This is the year of the big redesign of the iPhone, which Leo refers to as the "tock" of the "tick-tock" development schedule from Apple. Apple has called a meeting with the Commission to discuss the matter. Leo says this doesn't necessarily mean we'll see two new iPhones, though, but he hopes so.

How can I be heard on the internet through Social Media?

Cheryl from Canyon Lake, CA

Episode 1095

Cheryl wants to know how to use social media to reach the most people. Leo says that most social media is set up that most won't hear her unless they follow her. So she'll have to build an audience. She can't expect to be heard by the masses automatically -- she'll have to generate interest. Leo says that a blog or a podcast are good options so she can own a place on the net and get her message out. Then she can use social media as an offshoot of that.

What are the best social media sites to be on?

Sam from New York, NY

Episode 1087

Sam wants to know if he has to be on all social media sites or just a select few, and what are the best sites to be on? Leo says he'll want to go where his customers are, but at the very least, he should have a brochure website to drive his customers to. Leo also has different feeds for his content, for his show, and his links. But that takes some juggling.

What are the best social meda outlets for a business?

Daniel from Redlands, CA

Episode 1064

Daniel has so many social media outlets for his business, and it's becoming a full-time job managing all of it. Leo says that if he has a business, he should at least have a web page, and a presence on Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest is good for selling goods. Google Plus is good, but it's not widespread at all. Twitter is great for communicating with customers, though. LinkedIn is good for finding employees. But at the end of the day, it's best to just keep it simple. YouTube is great for video, but he's better off driving people to his own webpage.
