Jul 04 2009 - Twitter Shortcuts
Being somewhat of a newbie to the Twitter scene, I keep seeing posts and articles about Twitter shortcuts that make tweeting easier.Â Here’s a consolidated list of shortcuts I’ve come up with.Â Check back from time-to-time. As I learn new things in Twitter, I’ll be adding to the list!
@username + message – reply to another tweeter
D username +message – private (direct) message to tweeter
RT @username – retweet
GET username – grabs the last tweet of the tweeter (appears in a dropdown overlay)
WHOIS username – check out a tweeter’s information
FAV username – add last tweet from tweeter to your favorites
NUDGE username – reminds a tweeter to update by asking what they’re doing
STATS – returns your number of followers, how many your following, and bio info
INVITE phone number – sends an SMS invite to a mobile phone
From your phone…
ON – turns ALL phone notifications on
OFF – turns ALL phone notifications off
STOP, QUIT – stops all message to your phone immediately
ON username – turns on notifications for a specific tweeter on your phone.Â NOTE: Using this from your phone only stops notifications to the place the command comes from; you’ll still collect the tweeter’’s updates on the web.
OFF username – turns off notifications for a specific tweeter on your phone. NOTE: Using this from your phone only stops notifications to the place the command comes from; you’ll still collect the tweeter’’s updates on the web.
FOLLOW username – follow a tweeter on your phone. Using follow/leave username from your phone is the same as using on/off username
LEAVE username – stop following a tweeter on your phone. Using follow/leave username from your phone is the same as using on/off username
Most of these commands you can find at the Twitter Support site, but I like to have my own handy list available.
