Twitter Tips And Tricks You Must Know About 

New Delhi: Twitter has turned into the go-to site for real-time updates and gathering snippets of info from those we’re interested in.  If you want to improve your knowledge or want to pick up a few tips and tricks to help you get more out of the service, then read on.   


  1. Keyboard Shortcuts

With many of us spending large amounts of time on Twitter every day, there has to be a quicker way to use the desktop interface and that comes in the form of keyboard shortcuts.  

  1. App Security

Over the time that you’ve been using Twitter, there is a very good chance that you have given some apps permission to access your account. While most of the apps are fine, it is worth checking in here to see what apps you have given access to recently and purging some of the ones you no longer use.  

  1. Schedule Tweets

Sometimes you can come up with a good tweet, but feel that it’s not ready to be posted for the world to see. If that’s the case, there’s a vast number of apps and tools that will allow you to schedule tweets for later. Tweetdeck is one example and if you’re looking for something a little more advanced, then Buffer is a great tool to use.  

  1. Sensitive Content

If, for whatever reason, you’re tweeting content that isn’t suitable for general consumption, activating this option in settings will either display sensitive content (those that users have marked as such) or mark yours. The latter will mean that users will be warned about your content before they proceed.  

  1. Embedding Tweets

Instead of taking screenshots of a tweet, you can now embed it into your blog post and allow visitors to interact with it if they were viewing it on Twitter. To do this, find the tweet you want, expand it and click details. You will see the option “Embed this tweet” appear in a new screen.  

  1. Deleting Location Information

While you can turn geotagging on, sometimes you might not want people to know where you’re are or have tweeted from. If this is the case, head to settings and you will find the option under ‘Tweet location.’  

  1. #hashtag searching

If you’re looking for particular topics or searching for updates to an event, using a hashtag to search can bring you more accurate results. Provided you know what the main hashtag is (eg: #London2012), you can find out more real-time info.
