Twitter: the best results in the shortest time possible.
Unquestionably, the enormous potential of this communication tool that has revolutionized the world of online social networks.
Nevertheless, there is a very frequent criticism from bloggers and scholars in the field of communication: "In the midst of so much noise, hard to find the latest news, you risk only to waste time. Especially if I follow hundreds or even thousands. "
In my opinion this is only true in part because Twitter, if used properly, not only keep you informed in real time only about topics of interest to everyone, but also saves a lot of time.
If there is a flaw or rather a limitation in twitter, is due to the fact that many functions through the interface of the website are not available because of restrictions due to the use of the browser.
And it is precisely here that come into play the use of special software, many of whom reviewed in this post that completely eliminates these restrictions.
Use Twitter for a couple of months or so, and besides having a lot more than meets potenzalità, I realized something that I consider vital: news, post news, information world, first of all spend more twittering from the Social Web .
Just use some little trick is knowing how to extrapolate, but I will speak in a later post.
The first step to penetrate into the world of Twitter and start using it in an evolved, is surely to leave the timeline available via a browser and use special software.
