Usage tipsNB There is NO “right way” to use Twitter! These are my own thoughts! Have a good profile - tell people why you are interesting Don’t try to read everything - dip in and out Don’t feel you have to respond to everything Vary usage - mix links, status updates, RT, @replies Follow and reply to interesting people Try responding to strangers who seem interesting Try to use just one tweet to get your point across
