    • My simple guide to Twitter Using the new Twitter layout Autumn 2010 Part 4: Managing the flow of information on Twitter

    • Benefits of using Twitter
      • Short headlines
      • Instant/live
      • You select what you want – not like Facebook where your friends might share stuff you don’t care about – you choose your friends more carefully on Twitter!
      • There are lots of Twitter analysis tools
    • Twitter lists
      • When you choose who to follow you can add people to different twitter lists
      • Click on the list button to add the person to a list
      • So, you might have a list called ‘government depts’ – you can just view that list rather than all the people you follow on Twitter
      List button
    • Lists
      • You can also look at other people’s lists and quickly follow a whole list. Click on ‘listed’ under the person’s name.
      • Then choose a list you like the look of
      • Then you can click ‘follow this list’ and follow all the people on that list
    • Twitter news sites
      • There are some sites which take all the links shared by people you follow on Twitter and create an online newspaper out of it. Two excellent examples are:
      • Twitter Times: http:// twittertim.es /
      • Paper.li: http:// paper.li
    • Twitter news sites
      • You can either create your own version of these news sites or view other people’s
      • Here are mine:

      • http:// twittertim.es /vahva
    • Saving and archiving tweets
      • A simple way of saving tweets to return to later is by making them a ‘favourite’ by clicking on the star under the tweet – you can view them at any time by clicking on ‘favourites’
      • If you want to save certain tweets and also analyse tweets based on a theme or event these tools are useful:
      • Twapperkeeper: http://twapperkeeper.com/
      • Archivist:
      • http:// archivist.visitmix.com /
    • Search and analysis tools
      • Visit these sites to see the different things you can do with Twitter
      • Twitter for busy people: http://www.twitterforbusypeople.com
      • Twitterfall: http:// twitterfall.com /
      • Tweetgrid: http:// tweetgrid.com /
      • Tweetdeck: http:// www.tweetdeck.com /beta/ (this is a download rather than a website
      • but is a very useful way to manage lots of followers)
    • Approaches to using Twitter
      • Have Twitter open most of the time (I use Twitter Gadget: http://www.twittergadget.com/ on my iGoogle page)
      • View Twitter in short bursts
      • Read a Twitter ‘newspaper’
      • View Twitter using your lists to distil information in groups
      • View topics by using the search bar or
      • clicking on trends or using an event
      • hashtag
