Thank you, thank you, thank you to Tip Junkie for her 3-part series on how to Twitter. I just joined the Twit band wagon and I am getting so much more out of it since her tips.

Here is a summary of the 3-parts but feel free to check out the full articles at Tip Junkie’s website.

To receive the benefits of Twitter you need to build your twitter audience.

a. Expand your audience by clicking on names your twitter friend’s reply to.

b. Check out what they tweet about and if interested follow them.

c. Many bloggers will post on what twitter users they enjoy, you can also check out #followfriday on Tweet Search and see who people have recommended.

d. @MrTweet is an online “personal networking assistant” that can provide you with suggestions of good follows for you based on your network and tweets.

e. Go to and search around for people to follow using keywords that interest you.

The #1 way to increase the number of people following you is to follow others. Also by providing value to others through your tweets by re-tweeting messages, participating in conversations and answering other’s questions. Follow liberally, you can always unfollow tweeters that you don’t enjoy later. Also be careful, Auto- follow-back applications may seem like they will make things easier but in the long run they can lead to spending lots of time fishing out spammers.

Master the Art of Twitter Conversation. When fellow tweeters feel a connection personally with you they are more likely to be interested in what you have to offer business wise.

Create your twitter Persona. Do you want to be personable, humorous, friendly or knowledgeable? When fellow tweeters feel a connection personally with you they are more likely to be interested in what you have to offer business wise.

Work on the design/appearance of your twitter homepage.

Learn from the masters and follow them. Notice how often they post links, reply to others, participate in conversations, learn from the “twitter stars.”

There are many applications to take Twitter to the next level, don’t let them overwhelm you, when you feel ready just try one out.
