A quick follow on from the last Twitter Home Updates post, I’ve actually done a little tinkering with the pipe and created this one: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=efc6a71d7ae898bb990ec53fdd8ee898. This new pipe adds a further branch which customises the whole process specifically for Twitter, namely creating a feed which only contains tweets that have specifically been addressed to the user with the @ prefix.

So now comms teams can monitor their organisations Twitter stream to read only those tweets that are specifically addressed to them, making sure that any external correspondence is not missed!

If you make this use of this on your organisation, drop me a line in the comments and let me know!
