    Edugeek user's Twitter names

    Hi,

    I hgave decided to give this whole Twitter thing a go and was wondering who used it and if you find it useful. I want to be able to use it as a network purely for my ICT work etc. If anyone uses it like this I would greatly appriciate any advice.

    Thanks,

    You would be best using lists for that. You can create lists in Twitter to divide your usage between ICT/ Comedy/ Celebrity gossip etc.

    I put the app on my android phone, signed up for an account, followed edugeek .... I haven't really touched it since

    What should I be doing? It seems like a waste of an app? Unless I can use it properly

    Ive found using hashtags is a good way to follow a breaking news story.

    to begin with then you just get "Why is #egypt still trending?" or "WTF is #egypt for?"

    Find decent client (I use free version of hootsuite - HootSuite - Social Media Dashboard for Teams using Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin). As others said use lists. Also twitter never works if you have 5 or 6 followers. The real power of twitter is once you get lot of followers and you are following lot of people then can use to get information etc.

    Also in terms of hashtags find weekly hashtags to do with your interest (where people meet online once a week) or generic ones to do with your interest. So if a parent and male then #DadsTalking is good one to follow. Education there are number including #ukedChat.

    I still haven't worked those out yet! Wold help as I tend to use Twitter for IM when out and about. Careful what you put up too, I keep finding sites like Amplicate or 123People spying on Twitter feeds to try divulge personal information or trends.
