One of my favourite tools for learning is Twitter. It’s quite hard to get your head around twitter and see what its benefits might be. I have created a 4 part series to try and tackle this problem and explain in plain English how it works.
Twitter launched a new look in Winter 2011 so not all the screen shots are accurate any more in these presentations. However, the principles are exactly the same. The only thing that has changed significantly is the way lists work in Twitter (to which I refer in presentation 4 below).
Part 1 – why bother with Twitter?
This is a presentation designed for those who think Twitter is not for them and is just a load of celebrities talking about nonsense
Part 2 – Setting up a Twitter Profile
This is a simple guide to setting up your profile on Twitter, choosing a name etc.
Part 3 – Tweeting
This covers Twitter terminology and etiquette – including an explanation of hashtags
Part 4 – managing the flow of information on Twitter
This is a short guide as to how to manage all the information coming through Twitter with links to some useful websites that help.
