At the the Twitter Website
Simply go to http://Twitter.com and log into your account. You can view your Twitter account from any computer with Internet access.
From Your Smartphone
I use a free program called “Ubersocial.” The program allows me to compose and read tweets on the go. One feature I especially like is the ability to e-mail a tweet. As I am reading tweets, if I see the one which will require a little time, such as viewing a link, I e-mail the tweet to myself and handle it when I return to my desktop computer. Another excellent, free, Twitter client for BlackBerry users was TwitterBerry.
The Ultimate Tweet Organizer
TweetDeck is a free program that you download to your computer. It is also available for the iPhone and Android. TweetDeck allows you to organize your Tweets into a series of columns.
For example, I have a column of tweets from personal friends, another from people I have designated as “national figures,” another for tweets that use the hashtag “#timemanagement,” and another for those who use the hashtag”#eyeoneducation.” I can create a column for any upcoming conference in order to follow discussions among people who use a hashtag for that conference. One column holds the direct messages to me. Another one lists all of the tweets where I (@drfrankbuck) am mentioned. I even have a column that brings in my Facebook newsfeed and another with the newsfeed for just my closest friends.
One of the great features about TweetDeck is that you can compose a tweet now and schedule it to post at a particular future day or time. TweetDeck is a favorite with more advanced Twitter users who follow many people, track a variety of topics, and need a tool to organize it all. TweetDeck does a nice job in this arena.
