I Am Beginning to "Get" Twitter
I think I may have reached burn out stage for this evening. I couldn't decide whether this post belonged under "Breaking News," because for me, it is, or maybe under "Technology" but I didn't want anyone to laugh at that choice.
I have spent the better part of three hours becoming acquainted with Twitter in a way I had never before. Folks, I learned how to make lists, how to add people to the list(s) and how to subscribe to other people's lists. Now the test will be to retain these learned techniques for 24 hours, until I am back to the "classroom" again.
As a member of Friends of Persona Paper and as a community member here in general, I would like to take my skills for promotion up a few notches. When Persona Paper thrives, so do we and vice versa.
I recommend BarbRad 's " Update for Whom to Follow on Twitter " for anyone interested in learning the user names on Twitter of the FOPP folks. This post also gives an easy-to-understand and follow guide to just about everything you would want to know about Lists on Twitter.
If you might be interested in some free programs to help you get the most out of your Twitter experience, melody23 has two posts worth your while: " Twitter Tools: Socialoomph review " and " Twitter tools: justunfollow.com review ."
melody23 has a number of posts explaining the importance of promotion via social media, especially Twitter and helpful advice such as how to gain followers on Twitter.
Last night I was feeling overwhelmed with all the information, but this evening, as I begin to take it step by step, I am finding it manageable and, dare I say it? -- fun.
