Buffer your Strawberry Jam

Sunday June 12, 2011 , 2 min Read

Buffer your Strawberry Jam

Twitter noise has been a buzzword for quite some time now. This noise is basically defined as the ratio of the number of tweets and the number of followers. Higher the ratio, higher is the noise. Whom to follow and whom not to follow? Which tweet should be checked out first? How would my tweets be more visible and chirpy? These are some of the questions that StrawberryJ.am and Buffer will try to answer. The two have joined hands to help you become “awesome” on twitter. StrawberryJ.am surfaces content using your social stream and Buffer helps you spread tweets linking to it throughout the day. The two companies blend together perfectly.StrawberryJ.am is a superb twitter powered news reader which is currently in beta. It is a way in which you can read the most relevant tweets first. It unclogs your feed and gives you what you want. The algorithm the application uses to show you tweets is based on how often the people you are following have mentioned this particular article. This allows you to quickly see the top articles of the day.

Buffer helps you to space your tweets throughout the day. Buffer protects your followers from getting flooded by spacing your tweets appropriately. Buffer App is a clean and simple freemium tool that allows users to load tweets into the "buffer" and have them sent out at pre-scheduled times, determined by the app. Buffer was launched a few months ago and it is not the most path-breaking idea or the first tweet-scheduling tool out there, but it certainly is user-friendly and effective. Basically, you pick tweets and tell Buffer to schedule them. The service will automatically figure out what time zone you are in and create a schedule.

In this age of information excess, web curation has found its feet and is setting its camp. Social media and blogs have added an exorbitant amount of information on the internet and that has enabled the business of Web Curation to thrive. Strawberrj.am and Buffer are two apps in this field which complement each other perfectly and seem capable enough to go the distance and make a mark in this thriving but relatively new field of development.
