This is my current philosophy as Chief of my Mixed interest Triberr tribe
My current tribe is a handful of fashion, some Mommy bloggers, some craft blogs, and some review bloggers. The thing about being in a “mixed” tribe is that you have different interests so you will not always want to tweet the things that others are tweeting,and others won’t want to re-tweet ALL of your stuff either. Ultimately, I decided to let each tribe member make that call. If they want to set someone on manual, they can. If they want to never tweet someone, they can. It’s up to them. I just like to remind them that it works in reverse too–people will probably set them to manual as well! My viewpoint on Triberr has evolved to this point and I feel it’s the right approach for a Tribe Chief, especially of a mixed tribe. In another, more strict “Giveaway” tribe, I MIGHT have a different approach but in this tribe which is for the members of my 2011 Fall Fashionista Event, I am now feeling this is the best approach. Please understand that Triberr is in Beta and so is my Triberr Chief philosophy. But I really feel that letting tribe members make the choices that work for them, is the best approach!
What I guess I am trying to say, is that Triberr can work for you if you join like minded tribes and set up your retweet policies in a way that works for you. I have lost 5% of my twitter followers since joining two tribes (one is a mega tribe of giveaway blogs) and now being the Chief of my own. But now in the last week, I have gained all the followers I lost and then some. Overall, I feel that Triberr has been great for me. I went up +6 in my Klout in one month and my page visits have been astounding (bear in mind I have had other factors affecting these numbers too).
Here’s a great article from Makobi Scribe with the theme of “Bummer–put them on manual”. Loved it!
