Twitter (part 4) using threads

November 28, 2008

Ok, I just thought it was timely to point out a new feature of twitter I figured out over the past few days..

Threads :

There is a great article in the guardian here about how using threads in twitter helps pull so much info together… as a case in point, go to http://search.twitter.com/ and click on #mumbai.

You will then see any posts which have been tagged by twitterers to come up here…

So if you happened to be in a scenario where you know others were going to be following you can use the #key to keep them all connected.

(ps to get a # in mac press alt and 3 together)

For an interesting article… check this one out from the guardian

ps one final thing I find useful the tinyurl extension for firefox is very handy.
