Learning both traditional and simplified Chinese characters

Hi, I just started learning Chinese Mandarin and I’m interested in learning both traditional and simplified characters. I was wondering if anyone had any advice such as whether one of them is better to start with or how long to wait before starting the other? If you learn both, how have you gone about it? I was thinking of using Skritter since it looks like it would work for me but I don’t know how much content they have for traditional characters.
