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.
I still don’t know how to reply to a twitter post!
Don’t consider yourself the only eluded one. I never thought of this. Thanks for the tip.
The option I prefer is twittermail.com and my blackberry.
