  • @ikostello Thanks for the feedback! Instagram might not be recommended, but still useful to mention based on the fact that there are more than 90 million users and can easily post directly pictures on Twitter. Also, the pictures look great using it :)

    uStream is a good alternative, but not usually associated with Twitter...but I will certainly mention it, if broadcasting comes up :)

    TweetDeck used to be in my previous versions, but somehow as I thought its functionality would be integrated to Twitter (as it owns it now, if I am not mistaken). Perhaps, I will add it back with Hootsuite, if I ever conduct this workshop again :)

    Of course Twitter is rocks using Mobiles (That goes without saying)...Who tweets on a PC...LOL! I suppose some still do :)

    Thanks again for the constructive and useful feedback :)

  • Instagram is not recommended due to inability to see images embedded on Twitter site, and broascsting can be also done via uStream. iGoogle will be closed soon since it has been removed from mobiles.
    Commenting on the overall proficiency of Twitter, only recently has more twits become found while searching for a hashtag (usually the more tine passes, the less likely tweets are found). And what about such apps as TweetDeck that allow work with both Facebook and Twitter, I would also notice that Tweeter is great for mobiles due to text messages and handy clients.
