How to Survive Twitter: Manage it with TweetDeck: Updated! New Features!

How to Survive Twitter: Manage it with TweetDeckTweetDeck 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. Great time-saving tool!

It helps you grow your following! 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!)

Update for May 17, 2019: They’ve added new features!

TweetDeck updated features
The add-a-tweet screen is bigger.

You can add more than one tweet so you’re not limited to 280 characters. You can also add a poll, gif or image.

However, you can’t schedule out yet. You have to revert back to the old TweetDeck composer to do that.

This feature is back! 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.)

In the screenshot below, the #1 trend was #NationalRelaxationDay. Elements Massage took advantage of it to promote their services. I also saw a spa, resort as well as many other folks just asking, “What are you doing for #NationalRelaxationDay?

I’ll be posting a monthly post 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.
