Twitter Shortcuts You Won’t Want to Live Without

If you use Twitter’s interface, there are several shortcuts (pressing 2 keys to give the the same action as a series of mouse-clicks) you will wonder why you haven’t been using them before now.  These are especially beneficial if you do some actions more than others, for instance; if you use your “Favorites” (tweets marked as Favorites to be used or referred to at later dates)  a LOT, G + F will take you straight to your Favorites page.  They are also good to know if you can’t remember where some of these menu items are.  For instance, if you can’t remember where Twitter keeps their “lists” feature, all you need to do is type G + L.


Viewing the Twitter shortcut cheat-sheets below, you can see some of them are pretty intuitive while others may take using a few times to get them memorized.  You can refer back to this cheat sheet any time; just favorite this page or download the images.

In addition to the twitter shortcuts shown above, you can see a few more available with the image displayed below.

There’s one more quick trick I’d like to add that isn’t really a shortcut – but may save you some time.  If you ever share your tweets, and want a Twitter link for a specific post, here’s a very short video to show you exactly how to do that.

Did you find these shortcuts useful?  Do you have any favorite Twitter shortcuts or tips you would like to share? I’d like to know!

I’m an artist at heart, always feeling creative. I fell in love with social networking and social media years ago when I was introduced to Twitter and it grew into a love affair when I created my website and had to learn to optimize my site, and market myself online. Now I like to share what I’ve learned over the years with my friends both old and new. Sometimes I might have a snarky, “Oh No She Didn’t” attitude, sometimes I might have a comedic sense of humor, but regardless of the view take, I hope you will enjoy what I write.
