Angel Tweets To Keep You Au Courant

Scads of valuable updates on angel activities and seed stage investing appear early on Twitter, but many angels are uncomfortable with the medium, either because they are unfamiliar with the syntax or they are drowned in a flood of irrelevant items. To use Twitter effectively it is necessary to separate the wheat from the chaff, then to recognize which one to discard.

As an experiment, we thought we would try doing this selection for you, at least this one time. Below are twenty tweets, pulled carefully from a haystack of thousands. You may recognize many of the tweeters. To access their wisdom, simply click any url posted in a tweet.

Were you on Twitter, to follow future tweets from a source you would use their identifier, which is preceded by the “@” symbol. For example, to follow Angel Investing News on Twitter you would follow @GeorgeMcQuilken.

If you would like to view additional tweets from any of the Twitterati shown below, just click on their photograph.

Enough explanation, try looking at a few tweets. Let us know if you find them valuable. We could easily publish an occasional dedicated post such as this one or we could add a few tweets at the end of our regular posts.

Angel Investing News App Now Available



We are delighted to announce that this blog is now available as a web app, also named  Angel Investing News,” which runs on iPhones, Androids, iPads, most tablets, and Apple and Windows PCs.  We would appreciate your giving it a try. 

To view the app, click here on the device you wish to run it or copy this url into a browser.:  http://MobileOnlineApps.com/demo_28094  
Should you not have the url handy at the time,  a Google search for "Angel Investing News App" should locate this post.

You will be given the option of running the app directly or using the pop-up message to download an icon to your home screen. We suggest the latter.

Contents:
In “George’s Blog” you can read the latest posts from the Angel Investing News blog, comprising original news and opinions written by angels, for angels.

AngelTweet”  consists of  our Editor’s daily selection of current tweets by angels, journalists, and opinion leaders in our nationwide innovation ecosystem.  Look for top national journalists including Scott Kirsner, Kyle Alspach, and Chris O’Brien. Also angels you might know: Joe Caruso, Christopher Mirabile, David Cohen, Jean Hammond, Chris Sheehan, John Landry, Ham Lord, and many others.

Background and Purpose:
A couple of years ago we started a blog, Smart Phones: Technology and Business Apps, building a pretty good readership among local angels.  The limit to growth soon became obvious: many of our non-technology oriented angels had difficulty regularly accessing the blogs. We believe the same problem also exists today with Twitter. 


Our web app is designed to make it astonishingly simple to access both this blog and a daily dose of the nation’s best angel-related Tweets. Just download the icon and you are set forever.  Any problems navigating the material simply restart the app using the icon.

Introducing the Angel Investing Gazette:
This brand new app is both a publication and an information hub, a “hublication” ™. The target user is an angel investor who is not necessarily comfortable searching and reading blogs, tweets, and YouTube.  It incorporates the Angel Investing News and adds a superset of significant other material.  You can download this hublication at http://MobileOnlineApps.com/demo_30292
