Automate Your Tweets with Tweet Generator

Tweet Generator by Gary Taaffe

This free Tweet Generator mixes hashtags separated by upto 4 sets of brackets, and any number of | symbols. Separate brackets with a space and generate hundreds of tweets.


Q: How do I use the Tweet Generators?
A: Here’s a great example of a message (actually it’s a quote from one of my books), a link to my book (the link could be to your website), and six groups of hashtags with a total of 20 hashtags used within those groups. Unlimited Tweet Generator will mix up all those hashtags to create 241 different tweets.

I do the same thing with lots more quotes and testimonials or whatever it is I want to use for my message, and then I match appropriate hashtags to that particular quote. This generates many thousands of tweets that I import into my AutoTweet program.

[WE NEED TO TALK, AMBER, Jim said with a heavy heart] [#Drunk|#AA] [#Father|#Parenting|#Family] [#Daughter|#Girl] [#Pain|#Sad] [#Runaway] [#YALit|#KidLit|#MGLit|#ComingOfAge|#Adventure|#Survival|#HungerGames|#TheFaultInOurStars|#Divergent|#MazeRunner]

Here are two examples from the 241 tweets generated:
WE NEED TO TALK, AMBER, Jim said with a heavy heart #Drunk #Parenting #Daughter #Sad #Runaway #Survival

WE NEED TO TALK, AMBER, Jim said with a heavy heart #AA #Family #Girl #Sad #Runaway #Adventure

Notice how those hashtags created a sentence in their own right? Not only are they great HASHTAG SENTENCES but they add information to the original message. Plus the hashtags will find very focused customers for my book. This is very powerful marketing. Check out STAMPEDE for loads more information on how to create great hashtag sentences and then how to apply them so they send your book or website masses of ready to buy customers.

Q: Free Tweet Schedulers
A: Punch “Free Tweet Scheduler” into Google for a compehensive list of schedulers to choose from.

Ellen Siders' PHoto Manipulation

Ellen Siders’ PHoto Manipulation



Be sure to check out the spec samples page on Ellen Siders website. You will see business cards, logos, ads, and photo manipulation. This piece of art you see here was composed in Adobe Photoshop from over a dozen photos of objects. The bell jar and goggles were drawn from scratch and the brass orrery was a black and white Victorian woodcut that I scanned. The books were photos of covers that I transformed to simulate 3D. The most difficult object here was the glass spiral thermometer. Also take a look at the character design, some are humorous, delectable and often quite intricate.

Below is some of Ellen Siders’ Illustration. You have to see this to believe it.

Ellen Siders' Steam Punk

Ellen Siders’ Steam Punk


Walkies was created along with a series of others as desktop wallpaper to sell at a science fiction convention. The fire extinguisher, phone receiver, leash and the copper spring for the robot’s neck were taken from scanned photos, the equipment on the bench started as black and white Victorian woodcut prints, everything else was created in Photoshop. The robot, dog and airship were each drawn with pen and marquis tools. The robot uses a scan of an actual piece of metal that has been warped into a cylindrical shape and then shaded with gradients. The dog was constructed using various filters and layer effects that were shaded with gradients. The airship was made with pattern overlays and textures and was shaded using layer masks and brushes. The background was a flat piece of riveted metal that has been warped and transformed to emulate perspective and curvature.

What you see here is only a smattering of her work. To get a real taste go to her website at You will find it time well spent.
