First assemble a large list of people you follow. Little by little, his followers will germinate alone. Avoid follow users who do spam. You will be able to realize who they are looking at your page, and evaluating the frequency and nature of their tweets. If they are too consecutive (for example more than fifteen per day) tweets, and character rather promotional, should not be a follower of them.
For these users, the important thing is what they have to say, and certainly not valued verdero Exchange. Let’s analyze Twitter options, for the common user. The left sidebar begins with an icon image that you had uploaded, minimized-, display name, the amount of tweets which has commanded until that time, his followers, and who you follow. Twitter lists are a more or less recent, functionality that somehow replace what would be the groups on other social networks, and we explained why, and how to use them. Through lists, It is possible to group people who we follow in groups of users (work, personal, friends, etc). Click on the link lists, and access a page with two flaps: the lists that other users have included us, and lists that we have created.
It is very revealing to see lists of people who follow, because this will give us information, not just who they follow, really enriching material, but we can see how these people organize their followers by criteria. To create a list, simply click on the new list link below the search box. We put a name, and then asks us if we want to leave this private list or if we will share it with the community. Once you create the list, we can find new people who are not yet our contacts-, or organize your own contacts in lists. Following the sidebar options, home takes us to the stream, i.e. to the list of tweets from our contacts and our own, our home. Then we see a link @+ our user name. This allows us to view the personal messages that have sent us, i.e. all messages that begin with @+ our user name, aimed at us. Below, we see the direct messages. The difference is that in direct messages are listed the primary messages that you send us, for example, someone seeks us in your list of users and sends us a message because he wants to tell us something. On the other hand in @+ our user name listed the answers to our tweets. The difference is subtle, but important. In the first case, speak directly, without having requested us; in the second, it answers to something that we have sent first. We can send a direct message, for example, from the user’s profile that interests us. The Favorites is another element of classification offered by Twitter. When a Tweet is notable, we want to save for your interest, or you simply want to access it more quickly, we mark it as a favorite, by clicking on the little star that appears in the top of the tweet, to the right. Finally, we found the topics of the moment, or trending topics. At the moment, regionalization options are not many, but Twitter promises that it is working to increase the options. By now it’s a handful of regions, countries and cities of the United States, mostly. We also have the option Worldwide, which cited the trending topics around the world. In the next installment: approaching the Firebox and make friends.
