Even if you've already been using Twitter, there are still plenty of other tips, tricks and tools to discover. Come and learn!
  • 20 Million Unique visitors by April 2009-Evan William-CEO (37 yrs)
    Evan Williams, Jack Dorsey and Biz Stone

    18 million by the end of 2009.

    Williams is a vegetarian. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Sara Morishige. They have one child.

    Jack Dorsey had grown interested in the simple idea of being able to know what his friends were doing. Specifically, Jack wondered if there might be an opportunity to build something compelling around this simple status concept. When he brought the idea up to his colleagues, it was decided that a prototype should be built.
    Twitter was funded initially by Obvious, a creative environment in San Francisco, CA. The first prototype was built in two weeks in March 2006 and launched publicly in August of 2006. The service grew popular very quickly and it soon made sense for Twitter to move outside of Obvious. In May 2007, Twitter Incorporated was founded.

    The one thing you can say for certain about Twitter is that it makes a terrible first impression. You hear about this new service that lets you send 140-character updates to your "followers," and you think, Why does the world need this, exactly? It's not as if we were all sitting around four years ago scratching our heads and saying, "If only there were a technology that would allow me to send a message to my 50 friends, alerting them in real time about my choice of breakfast cereal."

  • Use appropriate sentence case. Typing in all lower case doesn’t gain you any extra characters.  And unless you’re fighting for space, use proper grammar.
    Know what you’re sharing. Simply tweeting a blog post or article title may not always be the best description.  Demonstrate that you’ve read what you’re recommending, by summarizing it creatively, and to fit your audience.
    Give a brief description, or better yet, a teaser of what we’re about to see.  Think of it as a movie trailer, and you want people to follow-thru to the link.  Similarly, don’t just post a link.
    Avoid multiple RTs (retweets). Simply RT the person you source.  If someone is interested in seeing who the original source is, they can click on to the person you retweeted, or do a Twitter Search of the phrase or link.  At some point, too may @usernames in a single tweet just becomes name-dropping.
    Via @username is OK.  You don’t have to RT everything.  Resummarize it in your own words, then give credit at the end
    Use hashtags (#) appropriately, and sparingly.  Hashtags make it easy to search for topics, but they’re most valuable when you want to join a conversation.  Multiple hashtags in one tweet causes for clutter too.
    Leave enough space to be retweeted.
