For a fun project I wanted to help the SEO community by curating tweets from the best and brightest in the industry. Looking for a solution to help with that, I came across TweetPik. After digging into the API and exploring the effortless Zapier integration, I knew it was a contender. After reaching out to Bruno, I quickly learned how kind, generous and talented he was as a developer. I knew at that point tweetpik was the perfect solution. I now use tweetpik every day to automate my curation tool seotweets.io which shares pixel perfect screenshots straight from tweetpik into my CMS - all I have to do is “like“ a tweet!
