Twitter Tips & Resources 101

Keeping Track of Emergency HashtagsThis morning's post has garnered a few more Twitter users that have started to follow me so I thought I should link to some starting tips & tricks and will keep updating the post from any questions and links from your comments and remember 'There's no such thing as a dumb question' so fire away.

Anything such as YouTube and other embedded items will be in the extended entry to keep some clutter of the main page.

The ABC Twitter Services page with ABC Twitter accounts to follow, suggested hashtags and a few tips and Twitter jargon. If you watch the ABC New Inventors 8:00pm Wednesday nights make sure you follow Mark Pesce as ‘most’ Wednesday nights he will be tweeting away whilst New Inventor’s airs giving insight and chatting with other Twitter users about the night’s inventions.

Mashable’s advice on following other Twitter users FOLLOW FAIL: The Top 10 Reasons I Will Not Follow You in Return on Twitter and you should follow some of these tips as you can always return to your followers page on Twitter and follow the people that have followed you but you were originally unsure about that person once they have updated their Twitter profile for example.

Twitter can be used from a vast array of programs and not just in a web browser which is probably the hardest way to use Twitter and understand what is actually going on in Twitter. Popular desktop apps are Twhirl and Tweetdeck that use Adobe Air, Mobile apps galore.

Although as I heard today on ABC Melbourne, they are charging $10 a month to hold phone numbers for people who had their houses burnt down. Probably been sorted out by now. But otherwise, a pretty good effort by Telstra.

EDIT: Andrew I will ask Telstra for confirmation on this. Stephen

Twitter has made a significant role in information exchanges. I do really enjoy using twitter. It's one of the best ways to get updated information!
