Hidden Tweets on Twitter – Are You Sending Mentions Down the Drain?

Think you are catching all of your Twitter mentions?  Think again. You might be missing hidden Tweets about your business.  

In fact you might be sending Tweets down the drain that you could be responding to.

In this post, I share my trick for finding hidden Tweets with one simple click.

It's simple.

One click and you will see all the Tweets about you that you have been missing.

Watch this video to see what it is. I apologize if you know about this, but in my experience, very few people do!

That's it.  It's simple right?

So tell me (and I am serious, click here to tell me) if you never knew this!  And if you did know, change the tweet to tell me that you did (you smart cookie). I am super curious to hear, as many of my clients and blogger friends don't know about it!

Be sure to remember, the next time you write a post, be it on your own website or for another blog:

  • Do this simple check on the article on a regular basis, especially if it is a popular article or a guest post
  • Click through on the list of Tweets that come up and reply to thank people for sharing the article (especially those people you wish to connect with).
  • Remember to do this for both the “Top” Tweets as well as “All Tweets”

Never miss a tweet about your articles again!

What about you?  Did you know this little trick?  Do you remember to do it or was this a good reminder?  Please let me know in the comments below.

    Hi Donna, thank you for a very interesting article. I learned about this some time ago, but then whey I tried on my own account I saw many errors. I’m using the same ‘Flare’ bar you do on your site, so initially I though that may be the reason, but that’s not the case.

    In some cases, I even see ZERO tweets about my article when I click on that link of the Twitter widget. Any ideas why could this happen?

      Hey Antonio – thanks for your comment – I haven’t really seen many glitches on my flare bar (usually it will be Pinterest if anything that plays up) but that doesn’t mean to say that others haven’t had problems. I have had a couple of plug ins (including Digg Digg) and they all seem to show up a lot of the tweets.. maybe I miss the odd one here or there, who knows… but if it is in the 1000+ count, I really won’t get to them all anyway, just a section of them. There are also IFTTT workarounds I believe and you can search for the URL to find them too, but I just find this to be an easy way to check on it, at least for the first week or two after a post goes live. Hope that helps!

        …mmm….maybe that’s the case. I was checking on old posts… will try again on recent articles. Thank you.

        • Donna Moritz

          Ah yes, I think I mention in the video that the tweet thread only stays for a few days, so you need to do it while it is still recent… eventually they won’t appear. They do exist in twitter, just not on that thread.

    Thank you for the advice. Responding on the tweets that are made in response to you is great way to grow your social media relationships.It is also best to reply as often as you can and as many as you can to these tweets.

      Thanks Lynne – glad you liked the article.

    Sorry Corrina – this message got caught in my system so I only just saw it – I think that Mind Body Green has custom tweet etc buttons and the feature has been disabled. Sorry about that – it is the default for most plugins but some don’t have it – you may be able to also do a search on the article title – that could work. Hope that helps! Great article – well done (good site to write for).
