We are deploying a new version of TrueTwit today. This version will resolve the issues caused by Twitter’s API bug from Wednesday. Since we have to do a deploy and take some downtime, we figured, what the heck, we are going to release some new features for TrueTwit Premium users. Here is the skinny on the new stuff.
- You can now subscribe to TrueTwit Premium using Paypal and Google checkout.
- We have a new Premium subscriber dashboard with cool dials showing rankings and follower trends for your Twitter account.
- Premium subscribers can now see retweets in the Premium Dashboard
- Premium subscribers have see what other people are saying about them in the Buzz section of the Premium dashboard.
Check it out and tell us what you think!

TrueTwit is experiencing technical difficulties due to a bug in the Twitter API. This bug is affecting TrueTwit’s ability to access Twitter to obtain follower lists. We are not the only site affected – apparently the bug is breaking other applications. Those who are interested in technical details can follow the fun on the Twitter Development Forum posting.
This bug unfortunately means that new users can not sign up for TrueTwit. Judging from the entries on the Twitter Development Forum, a fix should be made shortly. We will keep you posted on further developments.

TrueTwit.com, has recently participated in a radio interview with the Social Media Guys. John Panico and Jennifer Miller (not a guy, BTW!) wanted to ask the “hard questions” about “Why TrueTwit?”

Today the TrueTwit team deployed a new release. We are really excited to roll out this release of TrueTwit and help our users manage their followers. Here is what is going on.
As you probably know, TrueTwit helps you manage your followers by sending direct messages to new followers asking them to validate that they are a real person. We are keeping that wildly successful service and calling it TrueTwit Basic. We have no plans at this time to change TrueTwit Basic or make it a subscription only service.
This release also contains TrueTwit Premium. TrueTwit Premium builds on the follower management in TrueTwit Basic by doing an in-depth, automated analysis of your followers and their tweets. TrueTwit Premium is a subscription service that we are charging an annual fee to use. TrueTwit Premium subscribers get the following new features:
- No automatic direct messaging of new followers.
- You can choose to auto-follow new followers that pass our follower analysis.
- Access to our Follower Analysis page which summarizes the status of your followers. A screenshot of the follower management page is below.
TrueTwit Premium costs only $20.00 per year. You can try it free for 30 days and downgrade back to TrueTwit Basic if you don’t like it. But we think you will enjoy being able to see what kind of content your followers are posting. You can cancel TrueTwit Premium at any time for a refund of your unused subscription. Current TrueTwit users don’t have to switch to TrueTwit Premium. We still plan on offering TrueTwit Basic to those folks who like the direct message to their potential followers.
Take TrueTwit Premium for a spin and tell us what you think. Or better yet, subscribe!
