"How to Save Time and Filter the Noise with a Great Twitter Tool – TweetDeck"

I have been using “TweetDeck” a lot recently, because as my followers on Twitter have grown, communicating as well as filtering the “noise” more efficiently has become a priority to save time and keep me sane.

Also, as I have spent more time on Twitter, being able to update my Facebook page in the one location is a great time saver.

As a tool it has lot more to offer once you learn how to use it and some of the features that I find useful are.

  • Lets me update my Facebook as well as do a tweet in one convenient location
  • I can also shorten a URL and send it with the Tweet and the Facebook update
  • Create Groups that I can track, like Social Media “Gurus”, Top Bloggers and Friends in an easy to view column format
  • It provides a feed from my Facebook page so I can see what is happening with my friends on Facebook
  • I can retweet from within Tweetdeck
  • I can update my favourites
  • Send a direct message
  • Add Twitpics to my Tweets
  • You can even email the tweet from TweetDeck

There are many other features and functions that are very useful, and I am sure as this software tool develops that it may become one of the premier Twitter tools on the market.

A good Video Tutorial I have seen on using “TweetDeck that I would highly recommend is by Christopher Hughes.

    I also use TweetDeck and very happy with it. As there is waaaay to much info out there, this is a great help in filtering what’s relevant for me. And the updates are frequent and useful. The only thing I would add is an option to sync the desktop and the smartphone app = same columns, same accounts, etc.

    Cool post and thanks for sharing all your knowledge, I’m here to learn!

    I totally
    agree with Terri… HootSuite and Sesmic started to gain space (at least with
    me) after Twitter practically killed TweetDeck…..

    For all Google Chrome users who thought old Tweetdeck was better, try my Tweaked version called TweakDeck (idea based on the Android app):

    I loved the old TweetDeck. Once the new version rolled out, I started using Hootsuite way more, but in the day, TweetDeck was by far the best.
