What's the best Twitter assistant available?

Recently I got active on Twitter again, and I'm experimenting with following a much larger group of folks than I have in the past. Now that I have achieved a critical mass, though, reading my feed is like drinking from the proverbial firehose. What I really need is a decent AI to crunch that feed into a digest with the best items, or at the very least, a list of trending topics from just my feed. Surely such a thing exists?

Explaining how social media works to my boss

I'm looking for some good articles that explain the timelines of social media to my boss. I'm struggling to get him to understand why delaying posting things that are already published online on news websites for days or even weeks doesn't make sense. Ditto delaying posting photos from events for up to two weeks. [more inside]

What's a really good Twitter list to follow live during the debate?

I follow very few pundits or specifically political people on Twitter, but just saw Bill Maher on YouTube saying he's going to livetweet the debates. It really made me wish I had stocked a list of the best people to follow for fun, incisive, weird, good live commentary on the debate. But, now I don't have time for that. What public list(s) should I subscribe to? [more inside]

What was this old leave-a-message machine?

I remember reading in the past few years about an old machine that was like a paid bulletin board. You'd pay a nickel to leave a small (business card or smaller) sized message and people could check it. I think the article I read compared it to Twitter, and was illustrated with an old engraving.

Top Twitter Lists

I recently switched to Twitter as my social network of choice (from Facebook). It is still confusing, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it and am enjoying it more than Facebook. I recently discovered the lists feature and have found it to be a good way to organize topics I'm interested in without clogging up my main timeline. Further, I've realized that other people have put together some great lists already, and I can subscribe to those way quicker than it would take me to build my own. [more inside]

Best iOS Twitter app?

What's the best Twitter app for iOS these days? I have been using the official app but the increasing amount of ads is getting to me. One feature that it does well is let me hide thumbnails in tweets. Is there an alternate app that gives that option? I've seen Tweetbot and Twitterific mentioned, but don't have any experience with either. Thanks!

Social media event/hashtag display on the cheap?

The small natural history museum I work at is looking for a way to let visitors tag photos on instagram (or twitter, or facebook, or whatever, but instagram is the one they asked me about) with a hashtag about our upcoming temporary exhibit, to be displayed on a 60" display in the gallery. The exhibit opens next week. The service we used for this last time shut down last week. All the other services I can find either have no moderation tools or are super expensive. Help? [more inside]

What Twitter feeds do you follow, and why?

I'm looking to diversify the Twitter feeds that I follow (out with sports, in with other subjects), so I'm looking for good Twitter feeds by people/publications in the humanities fields, popular science and/or the media. If you can add a bit about why a particular feed is worth following, so much the better. Thanks!

Help me automate my bar's insta-tweets

The bar I work at has a daily daiquiri, throwback Thursday dinks, and stuff I would like to queue up and set on a timer to be later posted to Instagram on the appropriate date/time, and tweet the insta link. Am not on Facebook. Is there an iOS app that can do that? My dream is to spend 45 minutes once a week or so, queue up all my daily specials I have on the paperwork, and not be fucking around typing on my iPhone while looking at today's sceule while I'm setting up my station. TIA.

Why do Twitter accounts get hacked?

Occasionally, I notice that friends' Twitter accounts (usually, apparently, dormant ones) are taken over by spambots posting links to fake Ray-Bans, etc. Why specifically does this happen? Would it be scripts trying out low-hanging-fruit passwords ("password"), a brute force attack, or something else? And would a very high-strength password fully protect you from these attacks?

How can I find the total number of tweets for a hashtag?

I'm trying to find out how many tweets a particular hashtag has had over the last 90 days.
