New Tricks: Use ConvoTrack to track the conversation around your story

Reporters, pay attention.

ConvoTrack is a great way for reporters and editors, marketers and non-marketers alike to track the conversation around a given URL.

Here’s how it works:

1. Go to ConvoTrack, paste the URL of the story you’re trying to track.

2. Through this, you can find all of the conversation about your story in the following spaces:
- Twitter
- Blogs
- Digg
- Reddit

If you track the conversation, you’ll be able to jump in, and you’ll be able to add commenters — as well as the people who share your stories — to your Twitter/Facebook/etc. lists.

ConvoTrack is a great reporting tool.

New Tricks: Use happn.in to discover local Twitter trends

happn.in is a great way of discovering local Twitter trends. Here’s how to use it:

1. Go to the site and click on your city. (To add a new city, suggest it on the site’s feedback form.)

2. You can either click on a specific local Twitter trend from the front page, or you can click through to the home page for your city. (Here are the pages for Chicago and Austin.)

3. Not only can you see the trends, but you can click through to the person who posted the Tweet. In the small amount of time I’ve used it, I’ve found a dozen new people to follow, all in my area, who I didn’t know before.

happen.in seems to be another great weapon to add to your Twitter arsenal. (Twarsenal?)

Cheers.
