Twitter tips

Since I joined Twitter I’ve encouraged a number of friends and family to join. Here are a few tips for getting more out of Twitter.

  • Install twhirl to allow for easier posting and following tweets (also allows cross-posting to Jaiku).
  • Add your full name to your profile.
  • Upload your photo.
  • Add your ‘location’ & ‘one line bio’.
  • Don’t select ‘protect my updates’ – Twitter is much more fun if you allow anyone to follow you.
  • Set up your mobile number to send and receive tweets on your handset.
  • Change the device updates option for your key friends so you get a SMS when they update.
  • Change the background design for your Twitter homepage.
  • Update regularly!
