Twitter Hummingbird - Is it worth joining?

Anyone else tried it yet? Worth joining?

http://www.twitaddict.com/hummingbird

I've made just over $500 so far in less than 2 weeks and it's building everyday. I'm pretty frigging excited. I already have the image in my head - $200 a day within a month. I can feel it...

Any other opinions or experiences? :)

Hi @saintbrowser - so this is interesting. What I'm wondering is how this compares to all the other Twitter follower-getter type apps/websites out there. Do you have any experience with any of those?
Thanks!

Hi SaintBrowser. This sounds interesting. So you kind of use this like email marketing?

Btw are you on Twitter? I am under the same username as here.

There's actually a new product that is similar to Hummingbird, but has many more features and a nice slick interface. Feel free to check it out (free download):

This has got me wondering if your affiliate id hoplink would be affected by Twitters use of tinyUrl and bt.ly ?

So how do you market this kind of product? Do you try to target businesses or what? How do you target a business with an affiliate page? Or do you just do PPC?

The affiliate link is embedded in the short URL conversion. Automated tools of this type are nothing more than Twitter spam. Here's one I caught on Twitterdeck today:

Location: Miami, Florida
Time Zone: Hawaii
Joined: Wed 01 Jul 2009 14:51
Following: 1635
Followers: 696

This member (spammer) had to add 200 people he's following each day for a week. Now he's spamming 700 people a day, who's only option is to block him or not follow.

These kinds of software tools identify Twitter members who don't follow back and drop them, but the tactic is nothing better than telemarketing or email spam. Twitter users must either turn off auto acceptance of new followers (not recommended by Twitter and others) or block spammers once they're following.

I wrote a blog post on best practices using Twitter:
