Filtering out the noise on Twitter

I’m not a social media elitist.  I believe everybody should have a voice and we at MDWebPro are all about helping newbies take advantage of social media.  With that said, sometimes  I can be much more efficient with my time spent on Twitter if I filter out the noise.  Our favorite social media dashboard is Hootsuite and today I discovered a new feature Hootsuite launched in August called the feed filter.

For those of you familiar with Hootsuite you know the concept of presenting multiple feeds in your browser window so you can quickly monitor all conversations, hashtags, lists, etc that are important to you.  Well today I discovered you can filter any or all of those feeds by Keyword or more importantly by Klout Score!
Now regardless of where you fall in the great Klout debate — I can’t see how you could disqualify the usefulness of occasionally setting an influence threshold for your feeds. Even if it’s not completely obvious how that influence score is calculated, I am fairly confident that a Klout score under 20 or even 30 is going to be bot or someone just starting out and not effectively using Twitter.

Now for the sake of finding new people and content of interest from those just starting out on Twitter, you probably don’t want to keep your streams filtered all the time.  But when you can’t make it through all the posts due to a busy day, this is a quick and easy method for finding which tweets were the most important.

How do you filter out the noise?  Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @MDWebPro.
