Effective use of Twitter

There are two important considerations (see Sue Waters):

  1. Your Twitter following: too few and the Twitter leverage is low, too many and Twitter adds to information overload and consumes too much time; 150 is good (see Dunbar’s number)
  2. Twitter management: the use of Twitter clients and tools allows you to prioritise, extract valuable information and communicate effectively

Twitter Downsides

  • uncensored
  • words can easily be ambiguous
  • people paint a mental picture from what you type
  • abbreviations not always universal

Twitter Client Software

  • twhirl: a multi-platform desktop client
