    Crash Course in Twitter Crash Course in Twitter Presentation Transcript

    • Twitter
      ‘Watching the world have a conversation’
    • Review
      What did we learn from Facebook?
      How are we going to use Facebook for our business
      Successes? Failures?
    • The Numbers
      The problem tracking the numbers is with third party apps that don’t report numbers so getting an accurate read is tough
      Numbers from Twitter’s Development Conference (Chirp)
      Founded three years ago
      105,779,710 registered users; no disclosure on active users
      300,000 new users a day – Twitter will double its size in a year; not quite growing as fast as Facebook
      180,000,000 unique visitors to Twitter.com
      60% of new accounts outside the US – used extensively in such incidents as Haiti and Iran
      75% of traffic doesn’t go through Twitter.com
      100,000 registered apps
      Searches through Twitter make them second to only Google for search data; Google 88 billion a month; Twitter 19 billion a month
      Twitter vs. Facebook – with Facebook continually tripping over its privacy issues
    • How to navigate Twitter
    • Twitter Tools & Apps
      The beauty of Twitter is its openness, allowing developers and designers the ability to create third party apps that can be used to help Tweet, track data and convert that data into more useful tools for brands, business, media and the general public.
      Twitter can feed to and from other social networks.
      Top Apps
      TwitPic
      TweetDeck
      Digsby (centralises email, IM and social networking accounts)
      Twitterfeed (tweets posts using RSS feeds)
