My simple guide to Twitter

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 3 part series to try and tackle this problem and explain in plain English how it works.

I produced a popular 4 part guide in 2010, the parts of which are still viewable here on Slideshare. I have now re-worked my original guide into 3 parts. I have reduced the number of parts because Twitter itself as a platform has got a lot better at guiding you through how it works when you sign up. So here it is. Also below are two youtube videos – one  is a tour of the ‘connect’ section of Twitter and the other is a guide to dealing with spam on Twitter. These guides were produced in July 2013.

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 – a short tour of Twitter

This looks at the key parts of Twitter and its terminology –  including an explanation of hashtags

Please feel free to share these with friends, download and use them for yourself and let me know what you think!
