Previous comments

“is the place where I quickly and easily keep up with what’s happening in the world – and in particular what others are up to with their ideas and activities around workplace learning. It’s the first place I go to when I wake up in the morning. But I do prefer to use  TweetDeck rather than the web interface – where I’ve set up different columns for my news feed, mentions, hashtags I follow, etc. This makes it much easier for me to see the overall picture of what’s happening in the moment.” Jane Hart, UK, 2020

“Twitter is a regular feature of how I see what people are pointing to, as well as pointing to things I’ve found as well. Chats there are fun, too. Like Jane, Tweetdeck is my tool of course on my Mac. I have to use the Twitter client on iPad/iOS, since they’ve taken away Tweetdeck on the iPad (grr).” Clark Quinn, USA, 2020

“After curating the Twitter feed to follow a critical mass of folks who provide useful content along with good entertainment, I find that Tweetdeck is far superior to the Twitter app or web interface. Using columns for lists and custom searches allows me to more easily organize the tweets into useful areas when I need them.” Audrey J Williams, Vice President, IT/CIO, USA, 2020

“For me, it’s the only way I like to access Twitter.” Learning Content Developer, Spain, 2019
