Twitter Tip #7

Twitter Tip #7

There are two ways I use Favoriting. One is as a bookmark, so I can go back and find a Tweet I found very useful. The other is to use it as a signal device. The person who sent out the tweet may still have their default settings set to receive a notification when a Favorite is awarded. If I like a tweet, but I don’t want to retweet it—maybe it doesn’t fit my themes—I’ll make it a Favorite so the person who sends it knows that I appreciated their tweet. Here’s the cool thing: when you unFavorite a tweet, the sender of the tweet doesn’t get a notification, so they won’t think ill of you.
