How do I use twitter?

Ok so what about Twitter? Following up from my previous blog post 'How do I use Linkedin?' I did the same for Twitter. I typed into Google 'How do I use Twitter?'. So this time I was delighted to find this upbeat YouTube video link that takes you through all the elements of setting up and using Twitter with visual references too.

Yes it does whiz by a little quickly but you can play it again and again as many times as you like. So again a good place to start.

I think it's probably worth mentioning that you may get the most out of Twitter for business by using it as a news alert mechanism that always includes a link to something of more interest or usefulness to you followers. Whether that be a link to your own business website, an article you have written on say a blog, or even to one of your many 'information portals' also known as 'microsites' or 'splash pages'.

Ultimately it's a great way to point people in the right direction when you have something to say that will help them in some way.

ha ha lol great video and very funny. I totally agree but If there weren't the people on Twitter posting 'what they had for lunch' would there be an audience for those that use it for business?
