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
