3 Tips to Get More out of Twitter

Hashtag is the one which feature which I use the most, be it to follow the trending topic or to start new topic. It helps me to gather majority opinion within no time. By adding your mobile number to twitter site, to get the latest updates instantaneously to your mobile helps a lot too.

Getting the most out of Twitter

Andy--this is one of the best "how-to" articles I've seen in ages. I think what overwhelms so many people about social media is the clutter. I was unaware of these tools (no surprise there) and they sound particularly good for business use. Great info!

Thanks for the post.  I must admit that I have not used Twitter because I saw it as much too overwhelming.  I will have to try the tools you mention to see if I can make it more user friendly.  Barbara, you are not alone in not knowing about these tools.

Want to economize your social media scanning? Look into Nutshell. Once you set up your preferences, it will give you one email notice (or more if you really want) summarizing the updates, postings and notifications relevant to your groups or contacts. And you don't have to worry about different passwords and logins for each media line.

Thanks Andy, I had not used such tools in tweeter still. I had used tweeter only as personal media to interact with friends and colleges, sharing simillar thoughts etc. If we are using this platform for some business or staticall evaluation purposes, then surely we have to explore such tools.  Thanks for the kind info.

@anandvy -  The power of the hashtag is overlooked, so I'm glad you use it like you do. I've come to reference it as the 'extended reach' of Twitter. Thanks for the comment.

@Barb & @eemom  -  Thanks for commenting.  I think that the overwhelming nature of Twitter, and Social Media in general, is the main reason people stop before they start.  I hear a lot of folks say that 90% of what they see on Twitter is drivel.  I always tell them that sounds like the Internet in general.  And where search engines allow you to narrow your field of search, management tools like Hootsuite and Tweetdeck let you do the same thing for Twitter.

@Tvotapka  -  Checking out Nutshell now. I can see the benefits of such a tool in monitoring what is being said about your company online.  I use Google Alerts for this as well. Thanks for sharing.

@SP  -  Thanks for the comment. Privacy is and should be at the forefront of all our minds.  It has been an issue of high concern since the Internet wave began, and is only made greater by the current Social shift and our overall openness to sharing. I think that the saving grace of the Social networks is that the onus is on us to share what we wish to share when we wish to share it.
