#ToolsChat update of Pinterest Tools from 5 September
I am blogging this to show you the flow of a Twitter chat from start to finish. I selected about 70 of around 1200 tweets. If I missed your tweets do not be offended I did it quickly and randomly!
Much to learn about Pinterest here too. Enjoy!
I am adding some comments during the tweets to show why I asked the questions I did and when. I use http://twebevent.com/toolschat to display questions, tips , news and instructions and to tweet from tweetchat which is imbedded into our twebevent site. We have had around 35,000 views on our twebevent page already.
We started #ToolsChat about 15 months ago to build a community of people who like to tweet and who like to know the latest online tools. We have a Facebook group as well that you may enjoy too
I warmed everybody up and invited/ reminded some of our biggest supporters that our chat was back on after a 2 week break. I did not just dive straight into asking questions.
I made this question to get participants involved. A simple question which is not yes or no but can be answered in 100 characters
A1 We use #Pinterest
ea time we see an image that expresses the message of removing barriers in design that others need to see #toolschat
A1: I’ve slowed down due to schedule, but hope to pick back up now that there is an Android app. #toolschat
A1 Sadly, I don’t get to it very often, but I do love it.#toolschat
“@arabpestcontrol: Anyone offering thoughts on shared “group boards”? #toolschat
”Careful who you invite Useful for project planning.
A1 I unfortunately am using it less. There are a lot of new tools and platforms. #toolschat
A1 Quickly learning Pinterest not just about photos. Networking, branding, bookmarking, SEO all happening#toolschat
A1: I use it for personal and business use. I write a blog about Pinterest which has brought me clients.#toolschat
A1. I use Pinterest personally, but also for a nonprofit – one more free way to drive traffic to a cause! #toolschat
Ahhh have missed #toolschat
!! What was wrong with me in August? Heatstroke? Q2 Pinterest username & what are your boards about?
Another question to get people involved and tweeting and to connect
more deeply with each other. Best to do this early as it will help bring their friends to the chat and everyone will see who is here. Will do more difficult questions next which there will not be so many answers to.
I’m tamcdonald on Pinterest (and most other places) Boards incl #cmgr #CoffeeTime
and stuff you don’t care about (seriously) #toolschat

What would be a pinnable post?” Something with an eye catching image.
And a hint of intrigue

A5 Reverse image search by Google or Pin Search Chrome extension ~ find the source for images and attribute #toolschat
What amazes me is how mainstream #Pinterest
is….. it is just as popular with the older generations as the young. #toolschat
A2: pinterest username is sheresed using to connect on a lifestyle level w/ biz audience.
Is Pinterest fated to be just a personal means of expression or does it have professional applications?#toolschat #NewhouseSM4
Q4 What are your favorite Pinterest analytics tools?#toolschat
is another tool to consider. I haven’t used in a while, but seems popular #toolschat
Q5 What general tools do you recommend for Pinterest? Please use their twitter handles if you know them#toolschat
Attempted to attract the attention of Pinterest tools twitter accounts plus makes it easier for chat participants to search for them
A4: pinerly is great for tracking single pins, and I like @repinly
for trends and content ideas.” We <3 Pinerly
A5: I like using Share As Images to take twitter posts and turn them into pins. #toolschat
“@CosmicDoggerel: A5 Use @woobox
to add a Pinterest Tab to my Facebook page. Helps to direct more FB visitors to my Pinterest. #toolschat
Yes ~ actually so much easier for everyone to use. No lists, no need to think of a status update, just#Pin #toolschat
Gives experts a chance to show themselves off and will give real value to those in the chat and reading the archive. I learned a lot too!
A6. You can mention a pinterest user just like on twitter by adding @username
in your pins. #toolschat
“@bekiweki: A6 Don’t pin all at once–it’s tempting to “pin all the pretty,” but frequent visits and steady activity wins. #toolschat
A6 Be consistent, edit boards ~ check for bad links, follow others, comment/like, have FUN:) #toolschat
A6: When an image is pinned, it automatically pulls what’s in the atl tag of the image. Use this to your advantage on your site. #toolschat
Q6 Pin articles you have penned. Great way to drive traffic to your blog/writing #toolschat
Ans 6: It may sound cliched but it helps if anyone doesn’t get overdose of pics posted by u. . #toolschat
Q7 Will you use Pinterest more in the future? Why?#toolschat
People are warmed up and are feeling more comfortable and are more likely to express opinions
A7- probably. I love collecting ideas and I’m a visual person, it’s perfect for me. #toolschat
a7: I plan on to but I know for a fact especially after tonight I will be updating my board #toolschat
A7) I hope to use Pinterest more in the future. Still trying to be good at Twitter and Facebook! And maybe G+ too! #toolschat
A7 Definitely more ~ excellent research tool, SO much data available #toolschat
A7 definitely. @Pinterest
helps me to create visual boards that I can use as inspiration for my work or projects. #toolschat
