Twitter rules more strict. Quick Actions retired. Default Button introduced.

Due to the latest Twitter updates to their “Automation Rules and Best Practices“, we are forced to disable multiple selections and retire the “Quick Actions” feature. As a result, you’ll notice that the checkboxes have been removed and you can now just select one user at a time.

Tweepi still provides a variety of tools to make your Twitter experience the best out there. More to come…

Please feel free to contact us for help using the latest version of Tweepi.

Stricter Twitter Rules. Introducing Tweepi’s new Quick Actions.

Update [16th September 2013]: Twitter did not agree that Quick Actions complies with their latest rules. As a result we are retiring ‘Quick Actions’ and making the best out of this situation by introducing the ‘Default Button’ toggle that emphasizes the main action you’d like to perform.

Please feel free to contact us for help using the latest version of Tweepi.

 

Due to the latest Twitter updates to their “Automation Rules and Best Practices“, we are forced to disable multiple selections. As a result, you’ll notice that the checkboxes have been removed and you can now just select one user at a time.

To keep Tweepi the fastest way to manage your Twitter account, we are introducing Quick Actions. Once the toggle button is clicked, you may click anywhere on a row to Follow/Unfollow or Force Unfollow a user.

Use your keyboard…

The great news is that by being cornered into this change, Tweepi got even better! Try this:

  • Enable a Quick Action
  • Click a row (that’ll activate the Quick Action selected)
  • Then start navigating with the “Up” and “Down” keyboard arrows. Hitting the “Spacebar” will select this row and activate the action.

We are confident that this change will enhance your Tweepi experience, and make it faster to make follow/unfollow choices through our interface.

As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback about Tweepi’s Quick Actions.

New Follow by Bio Search. Retired “Load stats”.

With the new Twitter API 1.1 requirements and improvements, Tweepi got a new upgrade to comply with the new restrictions as well as an awesome new Bio Search feature. The “Follow by Tweet search” Premium feature can now load 75 tweets to be analyzed rather than just 50.

A new improvement of the Twitter API adds the user search feature. Tweepi Premium Platinum users can now search for public Twitter users by bio, topic of interest, full name, company name, location, or other similar criteria.

“Load stats” button and columns deactivated

With the new rate limiting introduced with Twitter’s API 1.1, we can no longer offer the stats feature. This feature and the stats columns have been deactivated. The button is now “Load Klout” to load Klout scores for the visible users.

More tweets loaded per tweet search page

The Follow by tweet search tool now loads 75 tweets per page instead of just 50. That should help our users select new users to follow faster.

 

We’re working on more exciting features… to be introduced soon!

Tweepi’s New “Force User to Unfollow You” Feature

Our latest Tweepi Premium feature is the “Force to Unfollow you” feature.

In a nutshell, you have Twitter friends (people you follow) and followers (people following you). The “Unfollow” feature unfollows users you are currently following. The “Force Unfollow” feature forces a user who is currently following you to unfollow you.

Why do I need it?

This feature was requested on several occasions by users who have undesirable people following them with bad profile images or just all with the default “egg” photos, and they wish to force these users to unfollow them to maintain their brand’s image at a certain standard.

How do I access the “Force Unfollow” tools?

Tweepi Premium Silver and Platinum users can access these tools from their dashboards.

You can simply see a list of all the users following you:

Force Unfollow: Show a list of all followers

Force Unfollow: Show a list of all followers

or use the more specific tools under the “Force Unfollow Tools” section:

Tweepi’s new Queued following feature makes things 10X faster!

We are excited to announce our latest feature: Queued following and unfollowing. This feature was added to minimize the time you need to do all follow/unfollow tasks through Tweepi. It was designed to be a great time saver!

What is it?

When you select users and click follow/unfollow, you will see that the status next to those users will change to “Queued for un/following”. This indicates that our servers will process it regardless on which page you are, within a minute or two. This feature was added so that you can select a large number of users for following, from each page, navigate back and forth to different pages without waiting at all. All following/unfollowing will be done in the background.

How do I know the status of those actions?

You will get a blue bubble at the bottom-right corner of your browser once each action goes through. The “Last action” in yellow will also be updated.

Try it out. It’s available for both Tweepi Free (for the moment) and Tweepi Premium accounts.
