Track Yourself On Twitter

I used to wait until I got back to my computer to check the replies to my posts on Twitter (via the replies tab).

But yesterday, I took Jack’s advice and started tracking myself on Twitter. I suppose hard core twitterer’s know this trick but somehow it had eluded me.

Now whenever someone replies to my post, I see it on my phone and can reply back.

In one day, Twitter has gone from a fun way to microblog to a full blown communication system. And it’s a world of difference.

If you are like me and slow to pick up stuff like this, give it a try. I think you’ll find it to be a great way to talk to your friends on twitter throughout the day. Just make sure you have unlimited text messaging.

In case you’ve never used track, just send a text message to twitter that says:  track yourtwittername

That should result in a message back telling you that you are now tracking your twittername.

    Don’t consider yourself the only eluded one. I never thought of this. Thanks for the tip.
