How to Survive Twitter: Manage it with TweetDeck

TweetDeck is a free tool by Twitter for Twitter. It helps you manage your Twitter account easily, see who’s followed, retweeted or mentioned you, create lists to monitor competition, monitor hashtags and most importantly, schedule tweets to post in the future. It’s a great time-saving tool!

It helps you grow your following! You can easily thank people for following you, mentioning or retweeting. The video below shows you how.

I first discovered TweetDeck when I was trying to manage an employer’s Twitter account as well as my personal one (because I was promoting a book). I was switching back and forth having to log out of one to log into the other. I also needed a way schedule tweets to out in the future. (Twitter’s up 24/7, you don’t have to be!)

Organize Columns

What I love about TweetDeck is you can organize columns to view your feed in “Home”, notifications, create lists and see which posts already went out. And the best part is schedule posts to go out in the future! You can also create private lists to keep tabs on your competition!

View what’s trending on Twitter in a column on TweetDeck

This feature is fantastic! Now you can really manage your Twitter account all in one page. The only thin you don’t have is analytics. You’ll have to go to your main Twitter page to see them. (Make sure you turn analytics on and you have 100 followers.) Learn how to use hashtags here.

I post a monthly article towards the end of each month on what will be trending in the next month so you can plan ahead and then use TweetDeck to schedule out your posts to take advantage of the trend to get extra exposure and grow your following.

Schedule Out Tweets

In the editing column, you can easily schedule out tweets to go out in the future. And once it’s scheduled, it’ll appear in the scheduled column…

Uploading Images

Use TweetDeck to upload images directly into Twitter. When you auto share from Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest, all you see is a link. Showing the picture, graphic, animated gif, even a video is way better and more eye-catching.
