Daily, I like to step back and look at the wisdom of the folks that I follow here on Twitter. This morning, I was curious to know if my Twitter habits could be improved.
My Twitter client of choice, at present, is Hootsuite for desktop and Android and Twittelator for iPad. I guess the number one reason is that runs in a browser so it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, it’s open in a tab. In fact, it’s one of the default tabs on all my browsers.
Twittelator is the go-to on my iPad. It’s been a long-time friend there.
Just to confirm that there’s not something better, I took a look at what the folks I follow are using to get their message out. Fortunately, Hootsuite makes it so easy since it lets you know what tool others are using.
Looking around, I find my timeline filled with messages posted from the following:
- Twitter Ads
- Twitter for iPhone
- Twitter for Windows
- Twitter for iPad
- Twitter for Android
- Twitter for Mac
- Twitter for iOS
- Twitter for Blackberry
- Twitter for Windows Phone
- and then I got tired of looking…
Clearly, there is no consensus as to what folks are using. Some share their thoughts and learnings from a Twitter client and others will just click on a link to share when they get to a resource.
The bottom line is that I see no compelling reason to change any of my habits. The process did give me a renewed appreciation for those who share their learnings and their thoughts on a regular basis. Together, we all become that much more informed and, potentially, that much smarter.
What more could you ask for? It may be a confusing start for those just getting started but the results are worth it.
