Here I leave some quick tips that might help you increase your
experience with Splitweet. We don't have a manual detailing every
aspect of the application (who would read it!) but a quick post
has the same effect, here it goes:
Hide your twitter accounts
If you click on the "What are you doing" header
you'll hide your accounts selectors, so you have more space for
reading. It will remain closed until you click on a button that
involves writing or you click the header again.
Change the preferences by default
You can set some preferences in the "profile" link that you might
find useful. E.g: Opening links in new tabs, show Twitter
user/full names... have a look. What there is by default it might
not be the best choice for your needs.
Read only interesting Tweets
Show to yourself only what you CAN read.
Hide your corporative accounts and add
their names in the brands' mentions: you'll stay tuned
on what's going on without having to read all the updates these
accounts are generating... You can always re-add a hidden account
by clicking on the link and read from time to time these
In my case: Despite I have several accounts I only read
3 of them on a daily basis, it is impossible to me to
read all the people I follow through splitweet or other
big accounts, but I am well aware of what happens
through the brands' mentions. Here's a sample:
You don't need a desktop client
Ok, maybe yo do :P but by using Splitweet your Twitter Quota is
never reached, because we do the request for you and we don't
have any limit (but you do from your machine).
Splitweet will look for new tweets and warn you
in each account every 90 seconds, and that costs
you nothing. Using TwitterFox for instance you
can receive updates every 3 minutes the sooner.
I have Splitweet opened in a tab all day long, and it really
works for me :)
Splitweet has memory
Caution, Splitweet remembers your selected accounts. Do not tweet
on the wrong account!
If you have used Splitweet for a while, sure you can help other
users by sharing your experienece through the comments!
