From Monday, August 31st, 2009, TweetLater.com will be no more and will be known as SocialOomph.com.
The transition to the new name takes place over the weekend of August 29th and 30th.
Why The Change?
To date we have been focusing on providing productivity solutions for Twitter users. We decided to change our name to allow for future expansion into other social media solutions, and to ensure that our brand does not conflict with any current or future legal rights of the Twitter organization.
To allay any speculation, we want to make clear that this is an unsolicited, proactive and preemptive action on our side.
What Do You Need To Do?
To ensure that you enjoy an uninterrupted service, please do the following:
- In your email program or service, white-list the email address email@example.com. This will ensure that you continue to receive your keyword alerts, and other email communication from us.
- In your browser, update your bookmarks to point to http://www.socialoomph.com. This is for your convenience only. After the transition, all traffic to tweetlater.com will be automatically redirected to socialoomph.com.
- If you are using a Status Feed, change “tweetlater” to “socialoomph” in the URL after August 31st. We will also automatically redirect your links to feeds.socialoomph.com.
- Your login credentials and the content of your account remain the same. No need to do or change anything.
- Look forward to new and exciting additions to our service!
TweetLater Professional Users
Apart from the recommended actions above, you do not need to change anything. Your subscription and your payments are not affected by this change.
Your affiliate links to TweetLater.com will continue to work and track into the future. We will automatically redirect your links to SocialOomph.com. Your commissions are also unaffected.
Nevertheless, to avoid confusion in the marketplace, please do the following as soon as possible after August 31st:
- Update your affiliate links. You will need to change “tweetlater” to “socialoomph” in your links. The rest of the URL remains the same.
- Update the text of your promotional material to refer to SocialOomph instead of TweetLater.
- If you are using our banner graphics, we will replace the banner graphics with new ones that promote SocialOomph instead of TweetLater. The change-over should be seamless for you.
TweetLater API Users
After August 31st, please change “tweetlater” to “socialoomph” in your API call links. We will also automatically redirect any calls tweetlaterapi.com to socialoomphapi.com well into the future.
A New Future
We are very excited about this change because it broadens our scope from providing you with productivity solutions for Twitter to providing you with productivity solutions for all your social media activities.
For you and for us this represents a giant leap forward, which will stack even more benefits on top of those that you are already enjoying.
Add some OOMPH to your social media activities!
Sounds like a great idea look forward to it
Good idea. Looking out for the future and growing a business requires smarts and risk taking. Good luck with your new endeavor!
SocialOomph? Cool, I like the name.
Congrats on the change… You've got a really great service here and it sounds like it's only going to get better. Keep up the great work!Cheers,Lou Bortone@loubortone
I look forward to seeing what future expansions you come up with! I'm a big fan 🙂
The service sounds great, but the name? I'm not crazy about oomph.
Sounds awesome! Can't wait to see what else you have to offer. I've been so pleased with Tweetlater that I have lots of confidence that your other products will be fantastic as well. THANKS!
I have been using TweetLater now for 4 months. I am extremly happy with your system. I look forward to working with you in helping to build my business. Thanks,@Mel_White
great idea on the name change… why pigeon hole yourself, don't be surprised if your competition follows your lead.
Sounds like a good idea to me, allowing for future actions makes sense and allows your clients to keep upwith market movements in a seamless operation. I will be watching with interest. Good luck guys (and Gals)
Great! Hope someone is working on an iPhone app for you guys….I am becoming a tweetlater power user but wish I could do this from my iPhone instead of having to pull out my laptop or desktop computer later in the day.
Always better to stay ahead of the competition than behind, innovate don't imitate!!@Conceive_com
All The Best…
Sounds very exciting, can't wait to see where it all goes moving forward!
This change will result in positioning the participants for greater levels of success with the tremendous growth of the internet & Web 2.0.
Thanks for your leadership in the industry.
good luck to you, I love the service no matter what you call it…
Find out where the people are going and … get there first! You guys are good! I'm looking forward to the social networking implementations that are being put in place.
I'd be interested in knowing the process of how you you arrived at the new name and the significance of the "oomph" aspect. Thanks
I have been hoping for a way to "set it and forget it" for all of my social media, including FB. Will I need to change my affiliate links?
Always good to be proactive. Will look forward to your growth, hopefully into other Web 2.0 directions. Do like your service and hope you continue with the good customer service.
Lovely… I think you service is great… now am waiting to see what you will offer new. 🙂
A good move – can't wait to see what socialoomph grows into over time. All the best.
I've been waiting 4 something like this! The only ? i have is when will i be able 2 start using the service 4 other social networks. A very satified pro user now going on 4 mths.
Great to so forward thinking on an already great service!!!! Love it! Lane.
Just signed up to Tweet later and look forward to seeing the new changes. Congratulations! Have a good weekend.
Lets do this… Lets make it happen. Good job guys. Pls keep it coming… CaptainSarumi…
Congratulations. I look forward to seeing what new products you introduce.
Glad to hear that you're planning on expanding your services; considering the immense speed of Tweetlater's development, I'm sure there are many more great things to come – looking forward. I said it before and I can only repeat myself: keep up the good work!
I'm looking forward to the other kick-ass services y'all will come up with. I use tweetlater/SO everyday to fill my tweets with great content for my readers.
What a great and clever move Social Oomph! ;o)
I agree that it will be a massive success for all of us who use your service to be able to use this message later service for all of our social media outlets, I thank you for your innovativeness!
This will definitely add OOMPH to social media!
Thanks for helping me to be better able to help parents Teaching Children About Money.
I don't know where I would be without your help.
Cheers…Amanda van der Gulik…Excited Life Enthusiast!
Makes sense. I am experiencing something similiar to this with a domain I own. So far it is a seemless and efficient transition.
Great to see forethought in action! I will still think of you as Tweet-Later, and I am not keen on the new name. Like some-one said (above) its harder to type, (just tried it). I know I have to go with the flow, but there’s nothing in the rules that says that I have to like it!
Think about it, TWEET-LATER was a great name that also told you what it does, and was easy to remember because of it. I now remember it with ‘social – (zero-zero) oo – mph (Miles-Per-Hour). Who want to move at zero MPH socially?
Trust me to find a negative viewpoint! – I’m ONLY JOKING – Like I said, its great to see that you are thinking ahead, (difficult without one), Twitter has closed two twitter accounts that I know of, that hinted at the twitter name; (Unfair on their part only because they shouldn’t have allowed the accounts in the first place and then subsequently closed them once they were built up)!
More obvious have been blogs and Squidoo lenses with ‘Twitter’ in their name. Growing into ‘other’ social media areas is the main reason behind this name change though, isn’t it!
Enough said, if you want to keep your head, don’t say twitter in your URL (or even hint at it).
As long as the service continues to be great, I see no problems. Good luck!
Very smart! You guys are going to be a definite powerhouse in the future of social media and productivity.
Keep up the great work!
Not wild about the new name although I appreciate the necessity of it.
For those inquiring, you can already use SocialOoph's service for other networks like Linkedin and Facebook by getting a Ping.fm account and then using that here to schedule your updates rather than using your Twitter credentials.
😉 Happy Tweeting!
Humm. Best of luck for your future goal.
future thinking it like it:)
I can't wait to see what you have in mind for the other Social Networks.
Thanks a million Have you thought of letting us auto-follow all members of this site?
Glad to see the approach. We love the service and are excited to see you unifying our social media outreach.
You've really helped us boost our site traffic.
nice, i look forward for it ! best of luck,SocialOomph!
I like the new name Socialoomph, much better than TweetLater
You are an absolutely great tool so I would be happy to use this with any other social media solutions that emerge in the future. Thanks a lot for everything which has really helped me on twitter @ognet
It is inevitable that Twitter will want to "own" its brand – smart thinking to make the change before they demand it.
Innovate or die
Good service whatever the name is from the province that brought us Moosehead
I am a big fan. Your service is thoroughly amazing, my social media friends and I swear by it. And I completely understand the desire to expand the brand beyond a Twitter-only service. But I am going to be the dissenter here and predict that you will re-examine the name "SocialOomph" and end up with something better later — and you should do it before this mistake takes its toll. "Oomph" is both a word from a bygone and irrelevant era and the sound one makes when getting slugged in the stomach by an unforgiving market. Please consider proactively redirecting your resources towards a hipper, more longterm and solid brand that will stand the test of time. Respectfully,
This is good for growing business opptinity. Congreatulation with you guys.
Really would love to see you add an iPhone and Blackberry application to your service. Mobile is the name of the game.
Not crazy about the name, but your service remains top notch. Thanks!
Whatever the name you have a great site, just one suggestion though, How about making it possible to edit or delete saved draft tweets, I would find it useful as they do become redundant over time.
