Hey guys, I’m back. Today I want to tell you how to use Twitter. Now, I realize that you probably know already, but I want to make sure that those of us who are still having trouble aren’t left out.
Okay, so the first thing that you have to do is create an account. You have to enter your full name, your username, your password, and your e-mail. I trust that you already know how to do that.
The first thing that you should do is choose whom you want to follow. All you have to do is enter their real name or username, and you will be taken to their homepage. Just click on follow.
The next thing to do is update your information. You can put a picture, a background (which I’ll talk about in a future post), and your settings. It should be easy to do, and then you’ll be ready to start tweeting.
Well, actually, before you start, you should go over to your sidebar and see if anyone is following you. I’ve learned that the more you follow (especially people who are already following you), the better. Just do some research and be sure it’s someone that you really want to hear updates from.
Now it’s time to tweet. There are a few types of tweeters:
- Personal—This is for people who want talk about their life and are not trying to sell anything. Unless you are tweeting to people you know, there is really no point to this.
- Marketer—If you are on Twitter to sell something, get traffic, etc., then this is a good option. It is where you post updates about what you’re trying to market. Just be sure to tweet semi-frequetly
- Perosnal-Marketer—This is what post people are. It’s where they are trying to sell somehting, but also post personal updates in hopes that it will boost their followers. This is what I am, and it seems to be the best tool. If you are marketing something and have a substantial amount of time to tweet, then, in my opinion, you should definitely take this route.
Note: I will cover this more in a future post.
So, what will you do with this new technology?
