An introduction to Twitter (beginner)

This practical half day course will start from the basics and show you what Twitter is, what it looks like on a computer and a smartphone, how to send a tweet, how to find people on Twitter and what following someone on Twitter means. What’s a hashtag? We’ll answer that too.

If you've never had a Twitter profile or have just started using one; this course will help you get comfortable with Twitter’s features and functionality. We’ll guide you step-by-step in setting up your account, finding profiles you’d like to follow and even starting conversations (if you want to).

Finally, we’ll take a look at how different NHS organisations and staff are using Twitter. You’ll leave the course with all you need to know to be able to use a twitter account and know where to get further Twitter tips.

Price         £189 + VAT per person

Date: 20 October 2015
Time: 1:30-5:00
Advanced use of Twitter (intermediate) 

Do you already have an active Twitter account but want to know how to make it stand out from the crowd? This half day course will delve into how advanced users of Twitter ensure their profile gets noticed for the right reasons. We will cover both theory and practice, taking in tools such as Twitter lists, direct message chats, embedding tweets on websites, using Tweetdeck and the collections functionality, search and monitoring on Tweetdeck.

We’ll learn from best practice examples from within and outside the NHS, which show how relevant audiences are grown and engaged on Twitter.

You’ll leave the course with an in-depth understanding of the functionality Twitter and Tweetdeck offer, how to monitor Twitter effectively and how to position your account to achieve your objectives.

Price         £189 + VAT per person
