How to follow an event on Twitter

Keeping up with all photos, videos and Tweets about an event is easy when you use the right tools.

So instead of going to twitter.com as you normally might, sign in using your regular Twitter username and password at tweetdeck.twitter.com (TweetDeck is Twitter’s multi-timeline view usually favoured by pro users) and follow the instructions set out in this short video, which explains it using the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics as an example.

Similar search filtering would work whether you’re following a breaking news story or an online celebrity Q&A.

You can use TweetDeck on the web at tweetdeck.twitter.com
