I’ve been flirting with Twitter recently and exploring various different clients on my iPhone including Twitteriffic, TwitterFon, Twinkle and Twitterlink which are all available through the AppStore.
I’m currently running several Twitter accounts, one of which is a pure newsfeed which is usually managed through Twitterfeed. This is pushing various RSS feeds out for me, however not all link back to a site on which I’m running Analytics.
The default URL shortening service in Twitterfeed is TinyURL. However today I changed this to Cli.gs which for me has several advantages:
- a shorter character count
- tracking (including hits over time, geo-location of hits, referrer counting, and social media counts)
In a sense it replaces Twitterlink entirely for me and it has the advantage of pushing a shortened trackable URL.
