What is Twibes?
What is the point of Twibes? What makes Twibes relevant?
Even if you are active on Twitter, there can be lots of random conversations that are hard to follow. Twibes makes it easy to participate in Twitter conversations you care about, which is made even easier with our threading feature. This allows you to follow all replies to a tweet from start to finish, without having a bunch of other tweets in the way.
I don’t understand Twibes. What is it useful for?
Let’s say you’re into sailing. You can go to Twitter and search for the keyword “sailing” to see all of the most recent tweets that have included that word. But, not all of those tweets may be relevant – someone could be tweeting about smoothly sailing through life, the song “Sailing” by Christopher Cross, or just that it’s a nice day for sailing. As a sailing enthusiast, this is not exactly what you were looking for!
When you search on Twibes for sailing, you get a full list of all the sailing twibes – from sailing in general to tall ships to people based in Chicago who sail on Lake Michigan. Let’s take the general Sailing twibe as an example.
As of this writing, there are over 100 members in that Sailing twibe. That means you’ve just found a lot of people who share your passion! If you’re new to Twitter and looking for friends, you can follow them all with one click – and all of a sudden, you went from wondering why Twitter exists to having active conversations with new people from all over the world.
But, even those members won’t be tweeting about sailing all the time. That’s where your Sailing twibe page comes in handy – it shows you only the tweets from those members that mention the twibe keywords, which in this case are sailing, sail or boat.
And when you tweet directly through your twibe page, your tweets can be more than 140 characters. A lot of our members find this feature particularly useful.
