Ok so I have had my twitter account for a few months now but without an iPhone I felt a little let down by the experience, BUT today in lesson we spent the whole morning ‘learning’ how to use it properly…..
I started off on my Twitter account on the usual Twitter site…. this was no good! I was advised move to TweetDeck and it all became clear. Before I saw the posts… well simply as one dimensional posts but with Tweetdeck it became clear that there is a lot more to be gained and soon conversations and the exchanging of info started. As I added more and more of my class mates it became apparent what a great tool this could actually be! I also found that using a different app such as Tweetdeck makes searching for topics a whole lot easier and more relevant.
Although the interface is a tad dull to say the least I do have to thank Tweetdeck for showing me what Twitter had to offer. I still feel the more I play with it the more will be revealed to me. I would advise anyone who doesn’t ‘get’ Twitter to keep at it, although for something you seem to have to try so hard to get I am surprised anyone has stuck with it long enough to reap the benefits! I can now see myself becoming another Twitter addict…. watch this space!
*note* I was however a bit trigger happy with my refresh button and my allowance soon ran out which was pretty frustrating….. limit yourself!!
