Twitter Guide: Talking in < 140 spaces


Welcome! You flew in from twitter, right? I first put this guide together in March 2008, a few weeks after getting serious about setting up a twitter profile. Back then, there weren’t that many people on twitter, but today twitter’s becoming a must-participate communications tool for businesses, non-profits, entrepreneurs and well, almost anybody. In August 2009, Ragan asked me to present “twitter 101” at their Social Media Bootcamp. Here’s my presentation. If you have questions about twitter, feel free to leave a comment here or send a message via twitter to @wiredprworks.

After meeting “The Demon Bride of Twitter,” who credits this mirco-blogging tool for her serendipitously vibrant life on all levels, I decided to twitter-ize, too. Follow me on Twitter When I asked her to share top tips, she advised me to follow at least 40 people, keep the stream onscreen at all times and search Google for how-tos.

I’ve spent the better part of today following the Demon Bride’s advice. Now, I’d like to share this list of resources with you.
