HOW TO TWITTER
Many ask How Does Twitter Work?
But that isn’t really what you need to know to learn how to use Twitter.
The most important thing to remember about Twitter and other social media sites is that they are SOCIAL.
It isn’t about broadcasting or advertising. It is about interacting and relationships.
You do NOT have to live on Twitter like I do to benefit from using it.
- Just pop in whenever you have a little time.
- Click on @mentions and answer any tweets that came to you.
- Type your username into the search box and answer any tweets you’re interested in that mention you.
- Be helpful to others.
- Share and retweet what interests you.
