Designing Your Twitter Feed

Congratulations on creating your Twitter account.  Remember that your profile is what others see as your online identity.  How will they know your interests and your passions?  How will others know what you like to share?  Allow your profile to change with you.  By keeping it up to date, you will find it easier to connect with others who you want to learn from and share resources with.

Today we are thinking about how best to build our Twitter feed – the tweets that arrive on our home page.

We have already shared Tom Whitby’s well-written, concise guide to building a rich PLN through Twitter here.

How can you quickly get value in your Twitter feed?  Follow people who will share the things you want to learn about.

We can do this through lists.

It’s helpful to take some time over the next few days to follow some people and look at their lists.  What lists interest you? Who on the list will contribute to your learning?

Taking the time to build your Twitter feed will help to ensure that you are getting the best professional learning possible on Twitter.
