Today’s social media-savvy society gives us a new medium to market ourselves and our business. Just look at Twitter; that website prides itself on having more than 500 million active users. We all tweet but is there anything that can spice up our Twitter experience for us? Tweetdeck is an application that makes the management of Twitter so much easier. This program allows you to schedule your tweets, monitor and manage your followers, narrow down on users that share your passion, spilt your followers into groups, etc. Here we share how you can supercharge your Twitter experience with Tweetdeck:
Schedule Your Tweets
Here is the bad news: People only like to follow users that are active. Become inactive for a few weeks, and we bet that you will lose some followers.
Here is the good news though, with Tweetdeck you can actually schedule your tweets days in advance. You can schedule the delivery of the tweet based on time and date.
You can even add links or pictures to your tweets. If you have found that there is a certain time your tweet gets read or retweeted the most, schedule your tweets to be delivered around that time. You will surely see a surge of new followers by taking advantage of this enticing feature.
Translate That Tweet
Have you ever wondered what your international followers were tweeting about? Only if you knew their language! Well, with Tweetdeck’s awesome translation feature you can translate the tweet from that user seven seas over with no problem.
With its other social media integration capability, you can now post updates to your Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Buzz, and Foursquare account from just one place.
No more logging into 5 accounts just to post an update.
Save Time With Easy Keyboard Shortcuts
If you are an avid Twitter user, I can guarantee you that the keyboard shortcuts which Tweetdeck offers will save you bouts of time. With just a press of a letter, you can reply (Letter A), Retweet (Letter S), Direct Message (Letter D), or favorite a message (Letter F).
How cool is that? You can even hit “C” to compose a message or “/” to do a Twitter search. To navigate, just use the arrow keys or letters “H”, “J”, “K”, and “L”.
Want to know another amazing Twitterdeck feature? It even allows you to view other users’ followers. This can be extremely important if you are a business owner. It is an awesome way to get targeted followers who will enjoy your tweets and most likely follow you back.
Here is another very cool feature of Tweetdeck, which we promise will make your timeline view a lot neater. The feature we are talking about is the one that lets you control whose tweets you want to view.
It also lets you view your new followers and their follower counts and bio. It also tells you whether you follow them already, making the task of following back much easier.
Another nice feature that will keep your Twitter timeline more organized, relevant, and clean is its Global Filter feature. With this, you can block out spammy words, topics, or people that you are tired of hearing about.
We hope these tips make your Twitter using experience a lot smoother. Twitter can be a great asset for your business and Twitterdeck helps you leverage that even more.
