Twitter has made some changes to the home page lately and I’ll be looking at those in more detail in the days to come. Meantime, I’ve been having a read of the updated Twitter support portal and I’ve found a few interesting things that are quite useful.
Readers of this blog will know that I am a big fan of TweetDeck. Probably 99.99% of my at-home Twitter usage is via this client. On the road I use Dabr. Indeed, the only times I really use Twitter.com at all is to make modifications to my profile.
However, while TweetDeck will continue to be my client of your choice, that usage percentage may well drop a little. Why? Because of Twitter’s command-line functions and tools which, as of now, don’t all work in TweetDeck (or, I’m guessing, anywhere else).
The Official Twitter Commands
When you visit Twitter.com the experience is, being quite frank, a bit underwhelming. You only have basic control and functionality and certainly when compared to TweetDeck and lots of other external applications it’s extremely limited.
