Twitter was by far the most successful platform for me to promote my launch. I also made a twitter thread where I tagged every startup that I had in my database with there open startup link. You can find that thread here. A lot of founders and company retweeted and liked the tweet they were mentioned in.

I have got a few feedbacks and ideas to implement. I will be working on that. Also got 12 new submissions to add to the directory.
Many companies are sharing their stats via Twitter like this and this. In order to automate that, I will try to create automation scripts that will find such tweets and parse them to extract useful information.
