    • 10. Advice from Edu-Twitter: Liz B Davis
      Go to settings andfill out your Bio! This is essential to getting followers.
      Tweet a few things - share a link, an idea, a resource, a blog post, anything.
      Don't protect your updates. People often hesitate to follow back if they can't see your tweets.
      Use your real name and your real picture. You will eventually have to say "Hi I'm "xx" on Twitter.”
      Look for people who will follow you back - that is what makes a conversation.
      Check out this spreadsheet of educators on Twitter add yourself: http://bit.ly/xfUn
      If you Tweet a question and no one answers, Tweet it again later. It is OK to ask more than once.
