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)
