Navigate Twitter Like a Pro – Use Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts were rolled out with the New Twitter redesign in September 2010, but they still remain elusive to many Twitter.com users. However, it’s super easy to start using these keyboard shortcuts to better navigate Twitter.com, and make your tweeting experience smooth and simple.

If you want the ultra quick and easy guide to using Twitter keyboard shortcuts, all you’ve got to remember is “?”. Just go to Twitter.com, enter “Shift” + “?” (making sure you’re not typing in the search or “What’s Happening” fields), and you’ll be presented with the full list of keyboard shortcuts.

However, pulling up this list every time you want to use a shortcut can be a bit time-consuming, and is counter-productive if you’re trying to incorporate shortcuts to save time. So, we’ve got the list of Twitter shortcuts for you right here. They’re pretty intuitive – for instance, pressing “n” for a new tweet or “r” to reply – so you should be able to commit the ones you think you’ll use most often to memory and become a power Twitter user in no time.

Actions
f : favorite
r : reply
t : retweet
m : direct message
n : new Tweet
enter : toggle details pane

Navigation
? : the help menu
j : next Tweet
k : previous Tweet
space : page down
/ : search
. : refresh Tweets and back to top

Timelines
g h : home
g r : replies / mentions
g p : profile
g f : favorites
g m : messages
g u : go to use

There are also a few “hidden” keyboard shortcuts that aren’t visible when you press “?” on Twitter.com. “Shift” + “Space” will page up and “Esc” will close the compose window and help window.
