Presence on Twitter

This website is of course the main platform for Project-Aria.  However, I am also actively participating on Twitter.

If you are on Twitter, and interested in Project Management on Twitter, take a look!

You can find Project-Aria on twitter at the following address:

https://twitter.com/PMProjectAria

I find Twitter interesting to discover some useful articles on various subjects that interest me.  For Project-Aria, I am mostly seeking information relating to project management, leadership and productivity.  Over there, you will find that I engage in the conversation with

  • Personal messages on project management, leadership and productivity
  • Retweets of good tweets from good sources on project management, leadership and productivity.
  • Some other non-related but interesting retweets, mostly motivational and quotes.

I try to ensure there are activities from me every day, except when I am on vacation.  My target is about 6-8 tweets per day.

Behind the scenes

I’d like to share the main tools that I am using to manage the tweeter account.  I do access Twitter sometimes from their website, but most of the time it is on the go, during transit.  Of course, transit means public transit as nobody should try to read or manage their social media accounts while driving.

My main tool is my iPhone.  I love what it lets me do while being on the go, waiting somewhere, accompanying my kids to an activity, etc.

TweetCaster Pro

On my iPhone, I have tried many of the available Twitter application.  For the past few months, I have been using mostly TweetCaster.  Sometimes, I will use the official Twitter application, but most of the time, it is TweetCaster.  I am even using the Pro version.

Zite

Zite is a great application to find content.  I like the design of the application, and also the features that let me tweet, email or even save to Pocket (see below).

March 2014 Update: Flipboard acquired Zite and all services have been transferred to Flipboard.

Pocket

Pocket is my favorite app to save and read articles later.  Others are available such as Instapaper, but I have been using mostly Pocket.  When I see article that I’d like to read later, or even use for a post on the website, I save it in Pocket, and find it back when I have time to manage Project-Aria.
