Twitter is a very handy social media site to help keep you in touch with what’s going on with the people/companies/organizations that you follow through the site. However, the more people you add to your follow list, the more you find yourself lost in the massive tweets you receive each day.
You can literally get lost in the hundreds, if not thousands, of tweets you can receive in a day, especially if you’re the kind of person who only allots a certain duration and time of day to Twitter.
How do you solve this problem? There’s actually a lot of ways you can work around this problem and make keeping track of updates easier. Here are some examples:
You can filter your tweets by keyword. There are various Twitter applications that can help you sort out which tweets you want to read about. Filttr is one such site that allows you to tag keywords and use them as filters so that you can see tweets that have your whitelisted keywords, and have tweets that contain blacklisted keywords omitted from the feed.
You can view tweets by groups. By organizing your follow list into groups, you’ll be able to make use of applications like Tweetdeck to make viewing tweets from grouped contacts in well-arranged format.
Organize tweet views by links. Sites like MicroPlaza and dailyRT help make viewing the most popular and recently posted links in Twitter. Not only that, you can set a filter on such sites to show you what your follow group are specifically following.
There you have it, some ways to help you filter your tweet views. I hope it helps you as much as it did help me. If you’ve got tips to add, comments, or questions you’d like to add to these tips, please don’t hesitate to leave e message over at the comments section. I’d be glad to hear from you.
