Now that you’re tweeting, it’s important for you to stay on top of any replies, retweets or favourites so that you can acknowledge or respond accordingly! If you haven’t already done so – download the Twitter app and enable push notifications so that you never miss a beat. If you don’t want to have constant notifications on your mobile, software management systems can help you monitor posts, hashtags and mentions - when you choose to check your notifications.
- Go to the Me tab
- Tap the gear icon
- Select settings
- Select your account
- Choose the notifications you’d like to receive >> swipe on.
Hootsuite and Tweet Deck are both very comprehensive – they even allow you to schedule posts to your Twitter and various other platforms [more on scheduling soon]. Have a play with both to see which you prefer. If you manage multiple accounts or social media platforms Hootsuite may be helpful as it allows you to streamline posts on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and more.
