Throwback Thursday: Tweetdeck vs. Hootsuite

In GCISD, we believe in continuous professional growth to move us forward on the road to LEAD 2021. Twitter is one of the best ways to build your Professional Learning Network and learn from educators just like you! Once you get into Twitter, though, you may find it becomes very overwhelming. Reading from the app on your phone or from the Twitter website, information can start to get lost in the mix. 

Back in 2012, we blogged about Tweetdeck. Tweetdeck is a fantastic way to organize tweets by hashtag or by lists. By adding a column to your Tweetdeck, you can easily follow information on specific topics. Make sure to check out the blog on Tweetdeck for this week's Throwback Thursday and check out the video below:

If you are an advanced Twitter user, or have been using Tweetdeck for a while, Hootsuite is a great next step for you. In Hootsuite, not only can you add columns of information, but you can also add different tabs of columns. So if your Tweetdeck is currently a mile long with columns, you  might want to switch over to this new tool. As you can see in the photo below with the red arrow, I was able to add a different tab for Elementary, Secondary, and Department hashtags for GCISD. Under each tab, I set up columns just like on Tweetdeck. This enabled me to organize my columns a little more, for those of us that are a little hyper organized in our digital world. Give one of these tools a try and let us know how it goes!
