Back in the days of yore, navigating around your personal computer often depended as much on your knowledge of keyboard shortcuts as it did your dexterity with a mouse.
For example, word processors and other document-editing software have used shortcuts such as CTRL+B (for bold) and CTRL+I (for italics) pretty much since the beginning of (their) time. And when the internet kicked off, many websites looked to incorporate these keyboard commands into their own online tools. Some added a bunch of new ones of their own, and one of the sites that loves the keyboard shortcut is Twitter.
For example, did you know that if you hit the ‘N’ on your keyboard whilst on Twitter.com, you’ll be able to immediately start writing a new tweet? Hit F to mark a tweet as a favourite, R to reply and T to retweet.
The space bar is a quick and easy way to scroll down to see more of your timeline, and the K (up) and J (down) keys let you move easily between individual tweets.
Master these keyboard shortcuts, and you’ll be amazed at how fast using Twitter becomes. For all the details, check out the infographic below – which is in a high-enough resolution to print out and stick on your wall.
