JOIN. To see what your colleagues are Tweeting about, join our LIST. Go to your home page, and click on “Tweets,” “Following,” or “Followers.” The new screen that appears will have your feed, and to the left it will say “Lists.”
SUBSCRIBE. Click on “Lists.” Any lists that you belong to (Member Of) or have joined or created (Subscribed to) will appear. Click on “Member of”, and then “Fall 2014” and SUBSCRIBE to this list. When you click on this list, and you will see EVERYTHING that folks on this list have tweeted.
CREATE. You can set up your OWN LIST. Especially if you are following a lot of folks, this will help you sort your Feed content. This is a great way to 1) stay connected to particular people and organizations; 2) work on your class projects (including your Constructive Actions); or 3) keep up on feeds in a focused way. For instance, you could have a List called “morning news” that you check to see what’s going on in the world. You could have another on “human rights” to stay connected to the latest on what’s going on around the world, or in your neighborhood.
CONNECT. You can use the List to connect your Twitter account to your Constructive Action and your Fieldwork. Follow the major players and organizations, authors, companies, publications, etc. related to your Constructive Action. Create a List. That way you can access all of the Tweets related to that topic in one click. (You can do this for major research projects, too.) This is a great way to connect with people. You may notice people add you to a List – check “Member of”. If so, check out what their List is about, and Subscribe if you are interested in it. This is a great way to create social networks, and increase your social capital.
