Here are some standard twitter tips to get you going if you want to DIY…
This list of tips is designed to offer something for everyone, regardless of their experience. If you’re just starting and don’t understand the basic terms, we have it covered. Similarly, if you’ve been on Twitter for years and think you know everything, you might learn a few new tricks.
Before you can do anything, you need an account. You’ll find a form where you can enter your name, email address and password. Then you’ll be asked to confirm those details. After that, you’re good to go.
The username you choose will be used to identify you on Twitter. You’re free to change username at any time, without losing your account or followers. People won’t be able to find you via your previous username, however.
This will also generate an ‘in reply to’ link below your tweet, which people can click on to see what you were answering. You can also just type in someone’s name (prefixed with @) if you want to start up a conversation.
Many TV shows now have an official hashtag, for example. This enables viewers to engage in a conversation simply by searching for and using that tag. For instance, you can follow comments on the BBC’s Question Time programme by searching for #bbcqt.
Finding your way around the Twitter website
The right-hand column offers suggestions of who to follow and trending topics. When you click on a tweet, a summary panel slides out to the right, showing conversations and images.
To add someone to a list, just visit their Twitter profile, click the button on the top-right of the timeline for a drop-down menu and click the ‘Add to list’ option.
You’ll find a selection of backgrounds plus the option to adjust the colour palette of your page. It’s possible to upload your own backgrounds too — plenty of designs can be found on sites such as Twitter Backgrounds and Themeleon.
There’s nothing stopping your followers reposting, or otherwise recording, anything you say. So even when your profile is set as private, you should think carefully before you tweet. Ask yourself if you’re posting information that you would not want to be in the public domain. If so, it’s best not to post it at all.
If you’re using Twitter for fun, and the size of your following is no great concern, then you have more freedom to post what you want. However, if you’ll be using Twitter in relation to a specific topic, you’ll need to think about how you balance your on-topic and off-topic tweets.
Apps and mobiles
In the UK you should save 86444 to your address book as the destination for your tweets. You can do a lot with Twitter SMS, including sending Direct Messages. Just text: d Username [Message]. Remember the leading d, lest your private messages go public!
If your device is not supported, however, Twitter also has a mobile version of its website at m.twitter.com. You can perform the same actions on tweets that you can on the desktop website, like Reply, Retweet and Favourite.
You’re currently limited to retweeting or replying; you can’t follow users or mark tweets as favourites. Again, this built-in app is a good way for new users to get started.
This allows you to keep updated with multiple streams at once. TweetDeck is available as an Adobe Air-based desktop client and Google Chrome application. Mobile clients are available for iOS and Android too. TweetDeck is free.
Dealing with pests and avoiding becoming one
Also, avoid posting the trivia of your life. Sharing thoughts, experiences and special events is interesting. The contents of your dinner plate or laundry basket are not.
While this was a clever idea, it’s quite a nuisance to load up another website for a single tweet, especially for mobile users. Keep your message to the 140-character limit. If you need more characters, use multiple tweets instead.
If you see any tweets like this, never click the links. Instead, go to the offender’s Twitter page and click the drop-down menu on the top-right of their timeline to find the Report for Spam link.
ManageFlitter lets you break down the list of people who you follow by how much they tweet, whether they follow you back and if they have a profile picture. You can select as many people as you want; you only need to click Unfollow once. The ManageFlitter service will then do all the laborious work for you by unfollowing each account.
Who to follow and how to be followed
Adding photos, videos or location to tweets
The top three of these websites are Twitpic, yFrog and Twitrpix. Tweeting via the popular photo-sharing site Flickr is possible too — you can read how to set that up here.
Automating your account
Automation can save you time by sharing links you want to promote while you’re away from your desk. If you’re completely hands-off, however, you risk losing followers, as your account will lack the human touch.
Various applications and services support scheduled tweets including Buffer, TweetDeck (desktop & Chrome), Seesmic (desktop & web), HootSuite and Gravity (Symbian).
The most popular shortening service is bit.ly, which offers analytics, enabling you to see the popularity of your links. Other popular services are tinyurl.com and is.gd. There are hundreds more. (Note from Dina: However a word of caution…these links can look a bit spammy to some people).
