Digital expert Steve Buttry shared a deck of his recent presentation about how journalists can use Twitter in better ways. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to use the service better.

A slide full of tips from @SteveButtry, whose deck has more Twitter tips. Aimed at journalists, but anyone can benefit.

It's by Steve Buttry (@stevebuttry), who has the cool title of digital transformation editor at Digital First Media (I last wrote about him in my blog when he shared very useful Facebook tips: "Figuring out what kind of content works on Facebook").

Here's how I shared his slides the first time, during my Social Media Weekend/#smwknd conference yesterday.

I meant every word I said -- anyone interested in Twitter should go through those slides.

Buttry, who obviously knows the right way to say thank you on Twitter, responded with these tweets:

Here's the part of Slideshare he was referring to:

Do you have Twitter tips? Share them below, please.
