Imagine the analytics they will be able to gather from this…
Although this could be considered “cheating” in the social world and I certainly do not condone automated social behavior, I do think NodeRED on BlueMix is very cool and easy to use and this is a fast, simple, and effective way to promote a given topic on Twitter.
What I did was create a flow in NodeRED to look for any Tweets that mention “bluemix” and the retweet that tweet to help promote BlueMix on Twitter. Here is the flow on BlueMix:
Check out my video below to see what each element in the flow does and how the application works. You can sign up on on the Codename: BlueMix beta today here to give this a try.
I have been messing around with BlueMix for a bit and I am seeing more and more customers interested in what BlueMix brings to the table. If you haven’t already, get on to the site and start playing around!
I figured I would share this because I found so many inconsistent hits on the internet searching for a solution. I have this dialog that I pop up and want to set the values and then retrieve the values once OK is hit using JQuery.
The HTML is pretty straight forward:
The code to set the value from my model looks like this:
var $radios = $('input:radio[name=transition]');
$radios.filter('[value=' + model.options.transition +']').attr('checked', true);
First off, what is a Meta tag??? A meta tag is text that describes your site or individual post inside of the HTML header. It was designed so search engines can quickly index your site and use the “key words” in those tags to provide more relevant results. Here are a couple of examples:
There is a stigma in the social world where one regurgitates information. These are the people who re-tweet things carelessly and often not even reading the content of the Tweet. This specifically addresses Tweets with URL’s. Too often I see a great Tweet, open the URL and the content has nothing to do with the Tweet text. This is a form of phishing or spamming to get a click-through view. Here are some basic tips I try to follow:
Stick to your Twitter ID persona. If your account is for sports as an example then only re-tweet sports information. Forwarding tweets for other topics may lose you some followers. My own ID is somewhat general but I “usually” stick to technology related material and throw in a bit of my personality now and then.
Read the content! If there is a URL in the Tweet take some time to read the entire article before you re-tweet. Many people use “shock text” in tweets or article titles only to find out the actual content may be the opposite position or something entirely different that the title.
Be social – don’t just re-tweet, engage. If there is an article then even post a comment on the article. Don’t just re-tweet, reply to the tweet with an observation or a simply “thanks for sharing” if you found it useful.
Kids – be careful who you follow and what you say online. You never know what future employers or schools may dig that information up down the line.
Follow your company guidelines! Be on the safe side if you are employed, state in your profile Tweets are my own and be careful about re-tweeting content that puts your company in a bad light. Re-tweeting and tweeting yourself are the same thing.
