Overview

Use people's first names in your tweets to them

> Remember that a man's name is to him the sweetest and most important sound in the English language. > **Dale Carnegie** (How to Win Friends and Influence People) nombre automatically adds the first name of the person you are replying to on Twitter to the Tweet. ## Background I'm surprised more people haven't read Carnegie's book. It's the top book on [Y Combinator's recommended library](http://ycombinator.com/lib.html). For years I struggled building an audience. But things are clicking now with my writing and my project [Draft](http://draftin.com) to help people [write better](http://draftin.com). One helpful technique I figured out is simply getting better at interacting with more people on Twitter. And I like using people's first names in communication with them. People are blind to their Twitter handles. Who the hell is @natekontny? I prefer Nate or Nathan. I think most other people prefer their own name too. But if you use Twitter in any volume, typing people's first names can be quite a task, and it's prone to typos. nombre was made to automate just a little bit of the typing. There's not much to it. After installation, click Reply on a Tweet in your stream, and their first name will automatically be populated in the Tweet box. P.S. [**I'd love to meet you on Twitter: here**](http://twitter.com/natekontny). Feedback -------- [Source code available on Github](https://github.com/n8/nombre). Feedback and pull requests are greatly appreciated. Let me know if I can improve this.

So, this doesn't actually work. Is it just me?
