Content Curation Software: Dashter
Dashter is one of the latest content curation softwares on the market. While other curation software focuses on multiple sources for their content curation, Dashter’s sole focus is Twitter, with a large ear to the many topics and conversations that are discussed on this social giant.
Dashter is an amazing content search, manage and curate plugin you run right from the admin panel of your Word Press site.
The Dashter method features four social media tools.
1. Listen: Dashter listens to twitter, searching for topics relevant to your website. Using WP post tags and your saved searches it easily calls up results relevant to your topics on twitter.
2. Curate: Dashter’s inline content curation platform is great for collecting, organizing and creating original content for your website. With Dashter’s drag and drop feature it’s easy to create posts quickly. Also, the content you curate now originates from your website and the original commentary you add is copyrighted to you.
3. Cultivate: With a Favorites search and cached tweets folders it’s easy to organize tweets you are looking to post now, save tweets in your favorites or check past tweets you have used.
4. Amplify: I think this is the most powerful feature of the Dashter platform. Dashter features social queuing, so you can send out tweets at intervals you desire. It also has a fantastic post mentioning system. When you curate a tweet or mention someone in a WP post, that person will be notified on twitter and linked back to the post. They can then comment and discuss the topic you curated, that should get the conversation started! Can you say Re-Tweet? This will create valuable social back links from Twitter to your website. That’s powerful SEO!
All in all, I really like this software. If you are using twitter as a social amplifier for your blog, product, company, whatever, I think Dashter is the most powerful Twitter content curation tool available and at a modest one time price, it’s a no brainer.
