Watching this in the main browser twitstream can be difficult. But at least it is a single stream so you only have to go up and down the list of posts; avoiding any from people who are not in the main loop. And don't even try to follow a conversation back too many steps.
And setting up a third party application like TweetDeck can be complicated. You probably need columns for:
- Mentions - so you can see messages which refer to you.
- Elevensestime search - so you can see all posts with the hashtag.
- Elevensestime group (i.e. all the people in the group you communicate with) so you can pick up the posts which miss the tag.
And then there is the time delay, with posts appearing much sooner in the web browser than TweetDeck (or any other app being used) you might be tempted to switch from app to web to speed things along.
And there is a possibility you run out of API calls in TweetDeck requiring you to change the way you might be working.
Does anyone find this easy. Obviously we men, not being competent at multi-tasking, will struggle. But has anyone found an easy way to do this? What systems and processes are you using to track elevensestime? Have the recent changes to TweetDeck helped (personally I find the conversation window quite useful, especially when you come into a conversation late). What other system do you use? Does the multiple columns on the iPhone version of TweetDeck help?
