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