It is the place I go to for the latest in news, sports, business, weather and professional and personal intersts. If you use Tweetdeck, it can be a great screen to organize these interests. You can do this several ways:
Create lists of information
Organize your followers by content. I usually put companies like CNN, USAToday, NewsChannels, NewsPapers in a list called “News” – one column for specific information.
Organize your columns by hashtag #
Organize your screen by function
Organize your time
Start writing the news for yourself and/or your company
If you approach Twitter like a newspaper and use a tool like Hootsuite or TweetDeck (I prefer the TweetDeck Google Chrome Extension), you will see Twitter in a new light. The main difference between Twitter and a traditional newspaper is that this news service is interactive and requires your input and readers to make it an effective platform.
Be a leader on Twitter and start making news and sharing insightful information. Connect with your users, but ultimately find a way to make it a fun experience so you stay with it on a consistent basis.
