Looking Into Twitter

I get the gist of twitter but from you more experienced people what tips and tricks can you throw at me?

I added a twitter button to the right sidebar. I guess it is time I get caught up with the rest of the world. John Dobbs told me a couple years ago I needed to do this and I am just figuring out he was right. Thanks John! I also finally got my buttons over there to look at bit more tidy. Thanks html!

Come join my thirty some odd followers!

    Don’t follow many people. Twitter can be yet another big time waster if you let it.

    Twitter is a crowd of shouting people. The loudest, most popular, most shocking, funniest voices rise to the top. The rest of the masses are lost in a sea of content. I will go so far as to say that you will never be able to make a relational impact on someone via Twitter. It’s too public and messy. It’s a good place to develop a brand, connect with leaders and see trends in the industry. But for social media, the relational impact of Facebook can’t be beat (right now).

    I guess I will provide a bit of counterpoint on Twitter. You can do as little or as much with Twitter as you like. I use it to promote my blogs, share scripture, hold bible discussions, as well as encouraging and promoting other brands, with which I have specific interests. There are a lot of multilevel marketers and people selling other stuff, but I have found it to be helfpful.

    I use my Twitter accounts to cover a broad number of interests. Because of that I cast a broad net and have a large number of contacts. If I wanted to simply promote a blog, cast a very narrow net and go deep.
