Brands’ approach to Twitter is in many ways more of an unknown than Facebook. With the way that Facebook Pages have developed, there is a very clear structure to how you run your business presence on Facebook. There is a place for your photos, video, wall updates, then tabs on the side to do pretty much whatever you want with and a clear distinction between friends and Likes.

Monitter : real time, live twitter search

Monitter : real time, live twitter search | Social Media Classroom | Scoop.it

Wondering how you are going to keep up with a large twitter conversation?  Try this Twitterwall called Monitter.  Many tweets fit on one page, pictures and names are large so you can identify the contributors.  The multiple columns like Tweetdeck is smooth, making this quite functional to follow several 'backchannel' conversations.   Displayed is http://www.visibletweets.com which prettier, but less functional for a high volume conversation (good for a guided discussion, with one tweet at a time).
