Twitter para periodistas: guía práctica


 

twitter para periodistas

Siendo consciente de la importancia que tiene para los medios de comunicación, el site microblogging ha publicado una guía de Twitter para periodistas. Cada vez es más relevante compartir contenido y la intención de estas recomendaciones es maximizar la eficacia al utilizar la red social. Aunque la compañía la haya destinado a profesionales lo cierto es que los consejos son útiles para cualquier usuario interesado.

Una parte considerable del tráfico de los medios de comunicación proviene de las redes sociales y entre éstas Twitter se presenta como un recurso destacado. Por ello desde la compañía han querido dar unas directrices para periodistas, interesados en difundir su contenido a través del site de microblogging.

Tuitear en directo

La primera recomendación de Twitter para los periodistas es tuitear eventos en directo. Aunque esto no siempre tiene sentido hacerlo, desde la plataforma indican que al ofrecer una cobertura en vivo el usuario se convierte en fuente de interés para quienes quieren seguir el acontecimiento.

Utilizar hashtags para contextualizar

Al hilo de lo anterior, para indicar a otra gente que el periodista está tuiteando en directo los hashtags se revelan como un arma efectiva, ya que los tweets aparecerán agrupados bajo una etiqueta pública.

Los hashtags sirven para ganar difusión, ya que no sólo los seguidores propios recibirán los tweets sino que cualquiera que entre en la etiqueta los podrá ver. Definen el tema de un tweet, así como del contenido enlazado, y reúnen en una búsqueda los mensajes sobre un determinado asunto. Leer más “Twitter para periodistas: guía práctica”

9 Ways To Build A Twitter Community With Substance

I get asked all the time how I “got all my followers”. I didn’t set out to amass a pile of people, but I set out to build a diverse, active network. In that sense, my secrets are these:

* I did all the stuff above. Some I realized I was doing later.
* I’ve never in my life asked for a follow unless I wanted to DM someone and couldn’t. I’ve NEVER begged for followers to reach some kind of “milestone”. It doesn’t matter.
* I converse a lot, and I make it a point to be as responsive as I can. Look at my Twitter page, and you’ll see that the vast majority of my posts are replies to other people.
* I share my own posts about twice a day if I think they’re worth it. I share bunches of stuff from other people that I find interesting, informative, funny. But I’m not a link feed, either.
* I’ve been doing this for over two and a half years, nearly every day. I’m present. I participate.
* I try to be conversational, responsive, engaged, and polite. The same way I’d want people to be with me.
* I started with zero followers, too.

That’s just my method. It seems so simple and obvious to me, but maybe it’s not.

Ah, Twitter. I keep seeing all these people saying “Yay! 1,000 followers!”. And then I get sad, because I think they’re really missing the point. Connecting with people is great, but don’t you want to connect with people who will enrich your experience overall?

Everyone uses Twitter differently and I get that. But I know what’s worked for me. Much of it hasn’t been deliberate or engineered, it’s just what makes natural sense to me. But in case there’s a tip or two in here, I agreed to post about my thoughts on building community on Twitter. Here’s my take.

1. Start With Twitter Search.

2. Tweet, even if no one’s watching

3. Look at other people’s lists.

4. Jump into conversations that look interesting.

5. Lose your obsession over who’s following and who isnt.

6. Think farming.

7. Don’t namedrop.

8. Share stuff.

9. Have some personality.

Twitter Starts Offering Personalized Suggestions on Whom to Follow

Twitter is in the midst of rolling out a new feature called “Suggestions for You” that offers up personalized recommendations of users that you might want to follow on the microblogging service. You’ll find the new feature under the “Find People” link in the header of Twitter.com.

According to Twitter (Twitter), “the suggestions are based on several factors, including people you follow and the people they follow.” The company also notes that you’ll start to see recommendations when looking at other users’ profiles. It will also be making the feature available to developers so the functionality can be included in third-party apps.

The move highlights an increased push by Twitter toward user discovery. Earlier this month, the service started displaying people results next to keyword search results in an effort to help users discover more people to follow; after all, Twitter is more interesting if you actually have some tweets showing up in your stream.

On Twitter, Almost Everyone Is Five Friends Apart


Have you heard Six Degrees of Separation? In case you have not, it refers to the idea that everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in six steps or less. However, on Twitter there are just five degrees of separation between you and almost everybody else on the social media platform. Leer más “On Twitter, Almost Everyone Is Five Friends Apart”
