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.
