In case you missed it on Friday, I shared “9 Twitter Strategies to Engage Your Audience“. That may have been helpful to the Twitter aficionados. Let me hit a few basics for those of you who haven’t given Twitter a try yet.
Here’s a great overview of the Twitter basics. This will help you get a sense of what it’s all about. After you’ve read the overview you should…
- Sign up for an account. Go ahead. Test it out. It’s free so you aren’t obligated to continue using it.
- Find and follow some friends…like me. That’s the real value of Twitter. It’s about connecting with other people.
- Don’t tell us what your eating for lunch all the time. Give us the highlights of what your learning and experiencing. Share what your friends are saying. Use the “reply” and “retweet” features.
- Try subscribing to a list…like this one. Use it as a way to keep up with what’s happening around us. It’s better than a newspaper because it’s instant news, you can easily scan the headlines, it’s being filtered through trusted resources and it’s free.
