  1. 1. Twitter Groups http://www.twibes.com February 16, 2012 – Carmen Brenner© www.sti-innsbruck.at INNSBRUCK www.sti-innsbruck.at Copyright 2008 STI
  2. 2. 2 What is Twibes? • Twibes allows to organize tweets by topics • Interest groups are called “Twibes” – Collects Twitter conversations with a similar topic • Tweets with similar keyword and hashtags from Twibe members • Users can – Join up to 10 Twibes (interest groups) – Create 3 Twibes on their own • Twibes can add a list on your Twitter account for each Twibe you join www.sti-innsbruck.at
  3. 3. 3 How to use Twibes Three simple steps • Login using your Twitter account • Find a Twibe that matches your interests – By Searching for a keyword – By browsing through categories • Join a Twibe by tweeting about this topic – Directly on the Twibe’s page – Or using one of the keywords describing the Twibe – Add a Twibe to your standard Twitter lists www.sti-innsbruck.at
  4. 4. 4 Conclusion • Twibes extends the standard Twitter lists – By using a combination of member tweets, hashtags and keywords to filter out tweets that don’t belong in the Twibe • Threading makes following conversations easier BUT • The functionality of the tool is sometimes fuzzy and not reliable • The search functionality only searches in existing “Twibes” • Creation of “Twibes” not working at the moment www.sti-innsbruck.at
