Are you managing multiple Twitter accounts?
Wondering how to streamline your Twitter marketing?
TweetDeck lets you engage, monitor and schedule tweets for multiple accounts from a single customizable dashboard.
In this article you’ll discover how to manage multiple Twitter accounts with TweetDeck.
#1: Connect Your Twitter Accounts
The first step is to set up your TweetDeck account.
If your company has one or two people monitoring social media, you can create one login using your company’s handle as the default account. Then you can add more accounts/handles to that same user login.
After you login to TweetDeck, you’ll see your TweetDeck dashboard.
The gray navigation bar on the left side of the dashboard is your go-to location for everything TweetDeck can do. From there, you can add accounts, write new tweets, review activity and notifications, read messages, change settings and more.
To connect additional accounts, click on the Accounts icon near the bottom of the navigation bar.
Next, click Add Another Twitter Account and enter the username and password for each account you want to manage. Now you’re ready to begin.
#2: Add Listening Streams
The most powerful TweetDeck feature is the ability to add streams, which are columns of tweets that are updated in real time. There are a number of different streams to choose from, such as User, Notifications, Mentions, Followers, Messages, Search, Lists and more.
To add a stream, click on the Add Column icon (with the + sign on it) in the navigation bar. Then select the column type you want to add.
You can customize the content of each column and remove excess noise. This makes it easier to find the information you want. Click the icon in the upper-right corner of the column to access your filtering options.
Keep in mind that adding lots of streams isn’t always better. It’s important to choose the columns that will help you reach your marketing goals.
Here are five streams that you’ll want to add.
The Notifications stream allows you to see when you have a new follower, someone has added you to a list or one of your tweets has been liked, retweeted or replied to.
Using this stream, you can quickly find active and potential clients, customers and followers. Essentially it lets you monitor every handle that is engaging with your content. You can use additional filters to narrow down your notifications to engagement, users and content type.
Add the Mentions stream to monitor every tweet that mentions your Twitter handle, whether for the first time or as part of a reply/conversation.
By monitoring and using this stream daily, your marketing team can track every company mention, and then react in a timely manner. You can quickly jump into conversations,offer customer support or engage with your existing user base or potential prospects.
Search is one of the most important streams in TweetDeck. It allows your marketing team to go beyond users and monitor content related to keywords or hashtags.
Using the Search feature, you can keep an eye on topics and conversations that are essential to your business.
For example, if your company is about to launch a new technology product, your marketing team can set up a Search stream to monitor all tweets for keywords such as new technology, today in tech, #techtuesday, and so on.
Bonus Tip: When setting up this stream, don’t forget to use Boolean operators to save space. This way, you can search for multiple terms in the same column.

Editor's Note: This post was originally published in October 2013 and has been updated for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
In 2015, Twitter made the news several times and received some “not so good press” for their user experience pertaining to their “fire-hose” like feed. For me personally, Twitter falls #4 on my daily social media list (#1 Instagram, #2 Snapchat, #3 Facebook) that I check, post to, and engage with. A few days ago while on holiday break, I started to ask myself “Why?”. Then as I started to play with it more, I realized it certainly was cluttered, out of order, and I was missing the people I really wanted to connect.-Kevin O’Connell
I also realized, I wasn’t using Twitter List’s to my advantage which is why I’m writing this post.
With just a little bit over 1,600 users that I follow, my Twitter feed always seems like a fire hose to the face and I can barely pick through the people and organizations I actually want to connect with. I always feel like I’m missing the important stuff.
So, I went back to utilizing Twitter lists to solve this problem and hopefully make my Twitter experience worth my time early in 2016, as well as allow me the ability to engage every time I have 2 minutes to jump on Twitter.
Let me explain what Twitter Lists are, how I use them, and how you can too.
What are Twitter Lists?
A Twitter list is a curated group of Twitter users. You can create your own lists or subscribe to lists created by others. Viewing a list timeline will show you a stream of Tweets from only the users on that list.
How do I create them?
On Twitter mobile, you go to “Me” next to “Messages” on the bottom of your app. From there you will see your profile and tweets. Look for the wrench, click on it, and you “View/Create Lists” will be the second option from the top. You can then see lists you are subscribed to or member of. The plus sign in the right hand corner will allow you to create a list. If you’d like to make it public you start by naming and adding a description. If you’d like to make it private where only you can access it and most importantly those you add to the list will not be notified they were added, then click private.
On the desktop, you will follow similar instructions by finding your profile picture in the right hand corner, clicking on it, and then clicking on lists. Then once you click on “Lists” you will see the ones you are subscribed to and on the right you can create a list. Here are two screenshots:
How Will Twitter List’s Help Me?
Whether you use Twitter for your personal brand or for your organization, Twitter lists will help clean your feed up and keep sub-groups all in one place. If you love organization in your life, this is the ticket. Let me explain a few ways I use them personally, for my clients, as well as some suggestions:
1. Late last year after a few of my speaking engagements I would immediately create a private Twitter List of that conference or event I spoke at. That allowed me to add attendees and those I networked with both through Twitter as well as in-person to this list. Now when I check that list, I have context of how we may have met, what industry or field they work in, and a reference as I try to find ways to engage with their recent Tweets.
2. Creating a list of influencers and entrepreneurs – Not only can I create a list of thought leaders and those I am aspiring to be but I can also search Twitter lists that are similar and already be created. Think of this as your favorite Spotify playlist but made up of your favorite Twitter users. Whether you are into crossfit, social good companies, or education, lists are a great way to get a pulse of an industry you are interested in on a daily basis, all in one spot.
3. From a business or marketing standpoint, Twitter Lists can come in handy especially if you are targeting a certain group of people or running a specific campaign. Remember, Twitter is about listening then engaging rather than pushing your own agenda 100% of the time. Here are some ideas you can implement for your organization.
First, if you are a small business, say a catering company, spend 15 minutes searching for other businesses and their employees in a 15 mile radius on Twitter. Then follow them and add them to a private list called “Surrounding Small Businesses in Denver” (insert your city name). Now 1-2 times a day (5-10 minutes tops), check this list and find ways to like a tweet, RT, or reply and jump into a conversation without spamming your potential customers.
Second, create specific lists for your target audience. With one of our clients, they were targeting graduate students in the beginning of the semester with two programs they were running that fit this demographic. We ran various hashtag searches and profiles searches to find dozens of up and coming graduate students in their field. We then added about 150 to this private list. Then on a daily basis, we would go right to this list to see what they were talking about, find ways to share resources with them, add encouragement during their semester, and identify young thought leaders.
Lastly, say you run a gym. Go and look for your members on Twitter (and if they follow you already, even better still add them). You can do two things here: one you could add them to a private list and engage with them daily. Or two you can create a public list “Gym members who reached a new PR” and add them to this list. They will be notified and feel real special.

Rather than leave your Twitter-based Christmas, New Years, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and other celebrations to the last minute, we’ve got some ideas for you to help you create a holiday Twitter schedule – so you can take some much deserved rest knowing that your tweets are all queued up.
Step 1: Make a list of the celebrations
December is a big month for celebrations around the world. Make a list of the specific holidays that you’d like to acknowledge on Twitter. Try to gather some insight into what your audience celebrates, and incorporate that into the list as well.
Celebrations can range from the obvious, like Christmas, to the more personal, like your company’s office party, end-of-the-year milestones or recognizing the charitable work of your employees during the holidays.
Be sure to note the date and time, if applicable, of all of the celebrations on your list.
Step 2: Write your tweets
Now it’s time for a little creativity. Spend a few hours brainstorming the tweets that you will send to mark each date. You’ll want to keep your brand voice consistent, but also write tweets that will stand out – everyone can tweet “Merry Christmas!”, so why not add a little personality to yours?
Don’t forget to leave room for an image!
Step 3: Make your images
Since images improve engagement and reach, it’s a good idea to include them in as many tweets as you can. Once you have your holiday-themed tweets all written up, find or create images to match.
There are some neat tools out there that can help you design images if you don’t have a graphics background, such as Snappa and Pablo by Buffer. These tools enable you to choose stock photos, add text and graphics, and download in a Twitter-friendly format.
Step 4: Use a Twitter scheduling tool
With your tweets written and images created, it’s simply a matter of plugging each one into your scheduling tool and setting them to go live at the right dates and times throughout the holidays. Easy!
(Optional) Step 5: Add in the right hashtags
It’s always a good idea to do a little hashtag research if you want your tweets to earn more exposure. However, this step is optional because often the most popular hashtags surrounding a live event like a holiday aren’t apparent until the day-of.
If you are able to quickly check in on Twitter’s Trending Topics on each day that you’re celebrating and include one or two in your related tweets, you’ll earn yourself more exposure.
And that’s all it takes to set up a holiday Twitter schedule! This method works for any holiday period, so don’t limit your scheduling to December alone. Happy holidays and happy tweeting!
