Day 7: One Word: TweetDeck

 

I thought I was in love with Mr. Hashtag. But I have moved on. Sorry #.  My new very best friend is now TweetDeck. Let me share my story.

I have been adding people to follow on Twitter like a crazy woman. I’ve got inspirational preachers who can massage 140 characters like Michelangelo with a tweet brush. I have Ashton Kutcher who shares lovely photos of his life that I love looking at, feeling like I am his close, personal friend. I have social media experts who share blogs and articles of things I tell myself “oh, shoot, I should have written that”. I even have real life friends who I tweet stupid messages to, even though they work in the office 2 doors down.

I’ll be honest. I’m going a little nuts--oh, nuts in a good way. I’m getting kind of hooked on the tweet.  But the problem is I have all these random tweets popping up and it was getting increasingly hard to keep track. Hello TweetDeck.  TweetDeck is “a personal browser for staying in touch”.  More than that, it organizes my tweets.  For instance, I have set up columns for each type of tweet (professional, friends, inspirational)—(FYI, Ashton K. is under “friends”). TweetDeck also helps me track when anyone mentions me or retweets me (I can’t believe I just said that). And the best thing of all, I have it set so that it actually “tweets” like a bird whenever a new tweet comes in.  Today, I listened to chirps all afternoon—best day EVER!!!!!! 

 Clearly, my next challenge is to figure out how to get things done (like my job)  in between tweets. But until I figure that out, I will enjoy my lovely twitterparadise. Thank you TweetDeck. Thank you TweetDeck bird chirps. And thank you Ashton Kutcher.

I had Tweetdeck for a while but put it away when Twitter was just taking too much time. I may have to try it again. I use Twidjet on my desktop to track tweets in real time.
