Use Twitter as a News Source

By August 22, 2012Twitter Tips

Twitter as News FeedTwitter makes a great personal news feed. In fact, you can set up a Twitter account without ever sending a Tweet. That account can be used to follow particular news organizations, industry experts, and competitors.

A great way to find relevant Twitter users to follow is to simply do searches for top Twitter influencers in your industry. Another way is to find a competitor or respected colleague and follow some of the Twitter users that person follows.

If you set up a specific Twitter account as a news source, it is best to use a tool like Hootsuite to keep an eye on that feed while also having the ability to view your main Twitter account. That way, you can keep an eye on both accounts in one place without having to switch back and forth within your browser.

Who are some of your favorite accounts that you follow as a news feed?
