Today, it’s a form of communication in and of itself. The 140-character limit, which once seemed restrictive, now seems almost limitless in its reach. One of the reasons for Twitter’s success and growth is the extensive collection of third-party apps available for use with the micro-blogging-and-so-much-more service. Twitter’s openness makes it easy for software vendors and Web site builders to create tools that take advantage of the platform, all to help you become an all-around better tweeter.

There’s no way to create a completely comprehensive list of tools for tweeting. They spring up as fast as rabbits in springtime. That said there’s no doubt you’ll find some gems here that you can put to use immediately. If your favorite tweet-helper app isn’t here, please let us know in the Comments area, so we can make this series as exhaustive as possible (after all, this is only part one).

“Copyright infringement”, “Web Site Content Theft” and so many other terms are used to denote a form of illegal activity that some of us end up doing at some point of time during our blogging lifecycle. We encounter these and sometimes appreciate the same and leave the original author in dark. In simple words it’s like photocopying a novel and changing the cover page and author’s name in it. While some of the web content publisher does it intentionally, most of us support it knowingly or unknowingly.  It can take the simplest forms like reading an interesting article somewhere and directly copying the entire content without taking permission from the original author, simply with an intention to share it among friends.

Sometimes we copy content from the original author’s site, sometimes we copy from somebody’s site that contains stolen content. What we should know is that any digitally published article is copyright protected even if there is no copyright information displayed and copying that would be actually stealing the original author’s property.

We made a mistake, and there is no doubt about it. We admit it to our readers and the world. We thank Mr. Fernando Fonseca for his help in pointing out our mistake. We had copied an article titled Five Tweeting Mistakes That Might Get You Blocked which was completely illegal. What we did was a result of ignorance of using copyrighted material without any permission from the author. We had aggregated some useful content for the twitter community and twitter lovers appreciated it, but it was not correct. As a corrective measure we deleted all copied content from our e-newspaper and decided to review our content strategy, so that we can deliver useful and genuine content to our users.

Some points to note:

–  Some Misconceptions :

> A site is not copyright protected if there is no copyright information displayed.

> Copying content with mentioning the source does not violate copyright.

–   There are content stealers who do not respect the original authors / content and in spite of having copyright laws in place it’s difficult to have a lawsuit filed, especially if they are from a different country. Most probably they will just ignore it and keep doing the wrong work.

– Best Practices of conformity: Adoption of Creative Commons License. We will be following Creative Commons License 3.0 by-nc-nd for our contents.

Best practices of sharing: If you like the content, share it via social bookmarking and give credit to the original author. Referring to an article and describing personal opinion/ experience can also be a way to share content without harming the original source.

With this we promise our readers that we will be back with interesting original contents shortly to make your twitter experience better and till then keep visiting and using our applications on our main site twt140.com. We will also be publishing more information on copyright issues, so keep looking in this space for more.
