Seldom do I use other people's work, but I wanted to bring ths to the attention of those who follow my posts. GKim Woods, the author of the original blog does a great job in this five part series on How To Twitter. This is a must read for anyone who is considering Twitter!
In this part we'll discuss a few of the other things you can do on Twitter Web. Part Six - Third Party Twitter Applications
It's been so much fun seeing the people come from this ActiveRain tutorial to the wild world of Twitter... and jump right in! Makes me proud :) It gives me the fuel to keep the tutorial going, that's for sure.
You can favor a tweet by clicking on the star. It will be saved in your "favorite" tab/page. You can access your favorites directly by going to http://Twitter.com/favorites (after you are logged in).
Here are mine (I should use it more) -
(Yes, you can earn a twit designation from @LindaDavis, lol)
As you can see above, @FresYes thought @SarahWV said something good enough to be "retweeted" so he put "RT" (you can also spell out RETWEET) before sending it again.
First, a small soap-box chat, do not only link up your own stuff if you want people to read it. Chris Brogan, aka Mr. Social Media, suggests you link up other people 12 times more than your own stuff. Because you are only allowed 140 characters, it's helpful to use URL shortening services like Tiny URL, Snurl, is.gd etc.
Ok... you're ready for a couple shortcuts now that you know your way around the long way (sorry I think it's important to know the long way first :) REPLY- When you are at the twitter home page, if you mouse over to the right of a tweet, you will notice the STAR and an ARROW. If you click on the arrow, twitter will fill in the @reply for you. TRASH- If you go to your archive (click on your picture or name) - when you mouseover you will notice a TRASH CAN, I'm sure you can figure out what that's for.
Stay tuned for Part Six.

Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, New Mexico are among the most stable real estate markets in the United States. This has caught the attention of the national media. As such, it is incumbent on local Realtors to provide information about our cities for those interested in investing, relocating, or visiting. My goal with this blog is to highlight issues or topics in real estate, and where appropriate apply them to the local markets.
