It’s time to revisit shortcuts again! You might remember an article I presented a couple of days ago with Facebook shortcuts, and how they could potentially speed up your networking on Facebook. If anyone has experienced any increase in Facebook usage by using those shortcuts, please don’t hesitate in letting us know. This time around it’s all about Twitter. Yes, there are Twitter shortcuts as well. Most people probably don’t know about them since Twitter is trying to decrease the number of third party Twitter applications through their continuous capping of the API. For people who like to use those apps, these shortcuts might not be all that useful. But if you are one of the people who is still using the Twitter online interface then these Twitter shortcuts will really come in handy.
I don’t know if networking faster is really a good thing, but navigating the Twitter user interface faster should yield quite a few benefits. We have covered time optimizations quite a lot here on Bit Rebels, and this may very well be yet another way to optimize your time on Twitter. It has worked for pretty much every desktop application ever released, so why wouldn’t it work for Twitter too, right?
These Twitter shortcuts are compiled and presented by My Clever Agency, and this is one of those really useful info sheets, or cheat sheets rather, that you could print out and keep practicing until you master a faster Twitter. I have always found that shortcuts are anything but overrated. They have helped me optimize my usage for many different pieces of software, which has lead to more time spent on actually doing something useful.
I don’t know if every third party Twitter application has a set of Twitter shortcuts, but I know a few that do. The fact that Twitter has incorporated their own on the Twitter website is in my opinion a great move. So what do you think? Will you be able to program these into your brain and then use them to your advantage? They will certainly speed up your use of Twitter, but to what extent is of course hard to say. Some people have become pure Twitter shortcut ninjas while others stick to the old way by using the mouse.
As I always say when it comes to optimization and the use of clever tools, make sure that the networking itself doesn’t get lost in the process. I’ve often said that networking is only networking if you network. There is no way around it. The only way to genuinely grow your influence on social networking platforms, and also on the Internet, is to network like networking is supposed to be done – which is by connecting. If a few Twitter shortcuts could increase that process without harming it, I would say it’s a good idea to start using them.
