Social media, and the sharing of it with your friends, is becoming an increasingly important part of the way we engage with our friends and colleagues.
But if you’re not using Twitter, you’re missing out.
It’s important to keep the right apps and services on your phone or tablet to keep all of your friends’ and colleagues’ accounts updated, but it’s also important to know how to get those notifications.
This article takes a closer look at how to use your Twitter feed and social media to keep your friends and fellow coworkers up to date.
We’ll be covering some common mistakes people make, but here are some tips to keep you informed and to get things going when the time is right.1.
Turn your Twitter handle into an app.
Most social media apps will let you use your profile to show your friends or colleagues how you’re interacting with them, but the best way to do that is to create an account on Twitter, like you would on Facebook.
In this way, you can send tweets, read their replies, follow them, or even retweet them, and you’ll be able to share your posts to your friends via email, too.2.
Create an account.
Once you’ve signed up to Twitter, go to your account settings and select your profile.
This will show you the options to set your account to public, private, or private.
This is where you can make the most of your ability to see your tweets, replies, and retweets, since it will show your followers and friends your current status.3.
Turn off automatic notifications.
Twitter doesn’t send out notifications automatically when you send out a tweet or reply to someone.
To turn off automatic alerts, go into your profile settings and turn off the “Alerts” section of the “About” section.
This section shows you a list of people who have been notified about a particular event, and a message asking them to check in with Twitter to get notifications.
It also shows a list that you can share to Twitter directly.4.
Set up alerts.
Go to the “My Twitter” section on the “Manage” page.
From here, you’ll see a list with options for automatic notifications and a list for you to share to your Twitter followers.5.
Update your account.
To update your profile, go back to the main settings page.
Under “Settings,” you’ll find a section called “About.”
Here, you should see a “New Account” button, and to the right of it you’ll have a list titled “Change your Twitter profile.”
Select “Change my profile” and you should be able go to the account you created earlier.
Once the new account is set up, go over to “Settings” again, this time selecting “My Account.”
Here you’ll want to go back into the “Settings settings” section and select the “Automatically notify me of updates” option.6.
Update the settings.
Go back to “My Profile.”
Click the “Change profile” button.
Select “Show all Tweets and Replies” and select “More options” to continue.7.
Share your tweets.
If you have a lot of friends or fellow colleagues who follow you on Twitter or are using your account, it can be difficult to keep up with what they’re tweeting, so make sure you’re keeping up with the messages they’re sending out.
To share tweets, you have three options: share them directly, reply directly, or link directly.
The options are: directly: share tweets with your Twitter contacts; reply directly: reply to people you follow on Twitter; and link directly: link to a tweet from someone you follow directly.
When you share tweets directly, you will see your friends who are following you in the notifications area of your Twitter timeline.
To reply directly to a message, simply click the message and select its “Reply” option, and then select “Reply to this tweet.”
When you reply directly from a tweet, you may also have to click the link to view the link in your inbox, or you may have to scroll through a list to see the message.
To link to tweets from other people, click the “Reply To” option in the “Follow” or “Reply This Message” options.8.
Reply to tweets.
To follow someone, just follow their profile, and when you follow them on Twitter you can reply directly or reply directly.
If they’re already following you, you won’t see their notification area on your Twitter stream, but they’ll still get notifications of the messages you send to them.
To add them to your “Follow List,” just follow them and they’ll be added to your list.9.
Reply directly to friends.
If your Twitter friends aren’t on your “Friends” list, you might not be able see their replies or follow them.
If that’s the case, just click on “Follow All” on the top of your screen, and your friends will see their notifications on their own profile page.10
