A favourite?

April 11th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Twitter is a great tool which I use daily to great effect! (Well I think so!!) and it has a heap of features that people know about, but it also has some that people dont know about or bother to use, one of those is the favourites feature.

The favourites feature was a way for you to agree with a tweet that you agreed with, similar to the facebook ‘like’ button but I dont use it like that at all. I like to use it as a personal Twitter bookmarking service!

I mostly favourite tweets when I want to look over them and respond but dont have time, when a tweet contains a descriptive link that I might like to view later, it might even just be a funny tweet/something that made me think/ or reminder for me to do something!

Whatever it is, I favourite it so I can easily access it at a later stage and doing it takes no time at all but it does save me lots of time looking through my tweetstream finding what I want to read

I go back through my favorites every few week and unfavourite ones that are out of date, no longer relevant or simply ones that I have read but enen after that I still have a heap of tweets favourited for various reasons

So there you have it, a very quick rundown on a feature that not many people use but something I find a very useful tool
