How to use Twitter

Thinking of trying Twitter but don’t know how? See Jay Ulfelder for some strategic (as opposed to technical) advice. I don’t agree with every nuance of it (e.g., I think a small proportion of personal tweets is beneficial), but you won’t go too far wrong by following all of it.

My quick tips:

  1. Please pick as short a handle as you can.
  2. Learn the difference between “@X” and “.@X”.
  3. Live tweeting (a lot) of a talk is not as cool for many of your followers as you may think it is.
