I just joined twitter not too long ago and I'm overwhelmed. Lots of info, lots of RT of the same stuff, and then some fluff. But also amazing links and amazing people who are so eager to offer help from across the globe. Thanks for that...
I'm following a lot of you on Twitter and I can't figure out a few things: I'm trying to use Tweetdeck but find I still miss stuff - unless you stay glued to it. I've read a ton of links and articles on Twitter tips, but still haven't found answers for these. Here are my questions so far:
1. How do you follow a conversation? With all the @ it's never clear what the person is responding to?
2. How do you join a group? - I saw someone say they just joined Twitter group #teachers, but I don't know what that means other than searching that tag.
3. Best practices for keeping yourself from going nuts or drowning in all the information?
4. How do you manage those that follow you? If they follow you, they're only seeing your tweets, right? You won't see theirs unless you follow them, so does it matter?
Thanks in advance for your help.
