Tweetdeck: An Amazing Resource

April 26, 2011 at 11:43 am 1 comment

This past Thursday I met an entrepreneur and foodie named David Benjamin. He is a member of a group called The Hungry Dudes that travels to different restaurants, and helps these restaurants develop good press through social networking. Mr. Benjamin also the founder and Social Media Director for Salex Basix eLearning. We discussed my business project in full detail and he gave me many helpful tips and hints to help my business thrive by using social media. Mr. Benjamin first told me to download on my computer a software called Tweetdeck. He explained to me that with Tweetdeck, you can organize your tweets based on categories or people. You can also have search engines running at all times with whatever you might be interested in reading tweets about.

As soon as I downloaded Tweetdeck and began organizing the people I follow, life became much more simple. It was so convenient to be able to look under one specific column to read about certain topics, rather than be bombarded with various tweets about everything under the sun. I was also able to create a running search for food and recipes and by doing this, have already discovered some people I am interested in learning more about. From a business perspective, this tool would be extremely vital at keeping an eye on your competition. If a sushi restaurant, for instance, was interested in learning about what people thought of their competition, they could have a running search for that competition and when anyone on Twitter talks about them, the sushi restaurant could read it. You can find out new places to go by having a running search in a certain city as well as many other things. Tweetdeck allows you to be extremely creative, and search outside what you normally might be looking for. This is a tool that is useful whether running your own business, or if you just have a lot of friends. Organizing your Twitter will be the most beneficial thing you can do with you time.
