My first attempt at using the new custom Twitter timeline function on Tweetdeck. Custom timelines allow you to curate tweets about an event or topic. For my topic I chose the inaugural CM1 Community Managers’ conference that took place today in Toronto.
First impression: I don’t love it. You can’t change the order of the tweets and so I had some trouble trying to organize tweets about the all-day event, which had several speakers.
You also can’t offer any background, context or commentary such as the text boxes that are available in Storify.
But it’s a good option to have out there.
