Twitter atau Facebook? Mana yang Lebih Baik dan Mana yang Harus dipilih?

Berbicara tentang mana yang lebih baik, tentu semuanya bersifat relatif, tergantung dari cara orang memandang dan menggunakan kedua layanan jejaring sosial tersebut. Facebook dan Twitter sama-sama memiliki keunggulan dan kelemahan masing-masing, keduanya bisa kita gunakan secara terpisah, tapi juga bisa digunakan secara bersamaan.

Satu hal yang perlu diingat bahwa fitur dari Facebook tentunya lebih banyak dan lebih bervariasi daripada fitur di Twitter, satu contoh kecil di Facebook kita bisa memainkan berbagai macam game, berbeda dengan di Twitter.

Layanan utama Twitter adalah update status (Tweet) dalam 140 karakter, dan tentunya di Twitter yang dikenal bukan istilah friend tapi Follower dan Following. Dimana Follower adalah orang yang mengikuti kita sedangkan Following adalah orang yang kita ikuti.

Tidak seperti di Facebook dimana kita bisa memberi komentar atas Status Update seseorang, di Twitter kita tidak bisa memberikan komentar, yang ada hanya me-RT atau ReTweeting komentar tersebut.

Twitter sangat efektif untuk menyebarkan berita, komentar atau opini secara luas dan cepat tentunya dengan syarat kita telah cukup banyak memiliki Follower dan banyak men-RT Tweet kita.

Jadi kalau Anda ingin mendapatkan fitur yang lebih lengkap dan bervariasi tentunya pilihan ada pada Facebook. Namun, menggunakan keduanya baik Twitter dan Facebook, tentunya akan memberikan manfaat lebih kepada kita.

The Best Twitter Applications for Android

Posted in Android by

The Android Market has more than 120,000 applications, many of whom intended to Twitter. Here is a brief description of some:

  • Twitter: This is the official Twitter application, it is excellent and its design is not fully adapted to QVGA, therefore Wildfire HTC among others.
  • Seesmic: The main advantage is the display of pictures of Twitpic in the application itself (not to redirect the browser) it is rather convenient.
  • Twidroid: For me, this application is the best Twitter client for Android, its main advantages are speed, clarity, variety of designs available and the availability of many services shortening links, video sharing (Pro Version) and pictures. Two versions are available, a free and a Pro available around 4 €.
  • Twicca: It’s not bad, but it remains in beta for several months.

You’ll understand, my favorite application is Twidroid, it allows more features and better comfort than many others. An updated version of Free Will made a pub, I’d rather not install it but without advertising, it is really complete.

Download UberTwitter for iPhone

Posted in iPhone by

After more than a year being exclusively available only for BlackBerry, an app that has received much praise from users making its foray into the App Store. ÜberTwitter It is, as its name suggests, is a client for the Twitter social network. I’ve been using it a couple of months on Blackberry and is much better than the native application Twitter.

No longer a client, I think that the App Store coexist a dozen of them. But there is a very useful feature, the landscape view. So if we turn our iPhone will look similar to the Twitter website and are similar to that in some applications for iPad: A column with the tweets to the left and a column with the information attached to each tweet to right.

The only flaw with this application on Apple is that it shows a mile away which is a modified app that comes from another platform, it has that aspect of web application of the 90 with a poor choice of font and a little iOS interface. Moreover, these small advertising banners at the bottom of the Timeline are not very nice, really.

However, as is free, if you like Twitter it is best to download it and try it! The worst that can happen is to delete it after 5 minutes …. Because if you’re a big Apple fan, you will not have a Blackberry native app (just kidding).

5 Tips To Read Your Feeds from Twitter

Posted in Tips dan Trick by

A couple of weeks, I explained my reasons on why he thought the traditional feed readers as we know they had only one alternative: to renew or to die. I want to affect the subtle but noticeable difference between a feed reader, such as an absolute, a traditional feed reader so to speak and a feed reader based on Twitter, in all cases we are doing the same, read feeds the sites we’ve signed, what changes is the ‘how’ we do it.

When we talk about Twitter, the more comfortable without doubt do this is by using lists, however, to access all your feeds in a comfortable way, the process is not as easy as finding all the accounts and put them in a list there are some observations that I’ve been seeing in the months I’ve been using the system and would like to share with you.

Unless feeds Subscribe: This may seem trivial, but I assure you it is not. Readers like Google Reader do not read articles that are stored as there are unread items in Twitter just yet buried after the latest updates from other accounts that are on the list. We can say that the main difference is both real time services, while Google Reader makes this classic furniture for the magazines where we can leave back issues, Twitter is showing us all the time fresh news, new news to those becomes much more difficult to access when you stop having the character of novelty. Subscribe only to those that really contribute something interesting and timely.

Use a Twitter client that falls short: When whatever reason I had to read my feeds on a computer that is not mine and I’ve stuck a look at my lists from the web interface experience has been a authentic martyrdom. For me there is nothing like Tweetdeck but I recommend Sessmic or Hootsuite Web. In the case of the iPad, a major responsibility that I have mutliplicado using Twitter as a feed reader is clear that an application is essential: Flipboard

Each list is a folder: Most likely, if not it should do, is that in your Google Reader feeds have all separated by folders. In the case of Twitter is exactly the same, although as said earlier is better not to abuse the number of feeds per list, much depends on the frequency of updating each one, but I would say there should be no more than 20 accounts list .

Share the content: If there is an advantage Twitter has over any other feed reader is that once the link comes into your timeline, this is much less likely to stay there still, stagnant, so take advantage of it. Share what you find important and interesting and discard what does not, and also you are helping to create news that will come to be trending the same topic and showing your supporters Twitterqué is what interests you and what not, so you can give lead to very interesting conversations.

One thing does not remove the other: When I wrote that other article, many took it as a direct attack aGoogle Reader, nothing is further from the truth, the only criticism was that I tried the traditional model that we have to read feeds, that is simply not looks good to me, is that much more can be enriched through social networks. In fact, it is enough that Google Reader provides support for reading feeds queFlipboard the same way, for example, which does not surprise me that we might see soon, that every statement is of no further effect. With the advent of Twitter that I have personally noticed is that a reader use to read news and posts that do not so much the ‘when’ and Twitter for those times when it, for those blogs that provide news and information Today in real time.

How many of you use Twitter you either complementary or exclusively to read your feeds? If you do not, I strongly suggest you give him an opportunity to the system, going to see how you discover many new aspects of the feeds and read so far you did not know.
