  • 2.
  • 3. Twitter is a gr8t tool to follow local/natl news/events and stay in touch with like/dislike minded folks on issues
  • 4. I use Twitter for fun and to drive traffic to station websites and hopefully get folks to turn on the radio.
  • 5. I use it to be able to connect to the community. It's an easy way to connect outside of my usual social and political circle.
  • 6. I differentiate between social media, @stevebuttry. FB for people I know. Twitter for listening to/learning from people I don't.
  • 7. For business, Dell and others have found success by offering deals to its Twitter followers.
  • 8. I use Twitter for all of the things mentioned. Social, work, fun. Its helped meeting new people in same fields easier.
  • 9.
  • 10.
  • 11. The key is to do it consistently and consistently well.
  • 12. I try not to be too repetitive, and to evenly pace my posts throughout the day if I have multiple tweets.
  • 13. Twitter allows regular customers to see specials for more repeat business. 
  • 14.
  • 15. Everything is much faster on Twitter. Timeliness was never more important – even posting something half an hour late is sometimes too late.
  • 16. One thing we have started using Twitter for lately is posting our fliers via Twitpic.  This is great and people seem to retweet them a lot
  • 17. I have found some good information on Twitter.  The tweets that contain links to blogs or articles relevant to the topic are very helpful. 
  • 18. “A tweet I posted about the new mural on the Iowa City store was viewed by KCRG news, so they came down and did a story about it. Success!” – Stephanie Catlett
  • 19. We are currently using Twitter to advertise new job opportunities, updates on my video blog, current events, etc. 
  • 20. “We’ve promoted events/activities in which people can get involved. We’ve also recognized people for their efforts (e.g., volunteers).” – Becky Soglin
  • 21. As a business, I use Chirpcity, to find people that live in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City to follow … and hope they follow me back.
  • 22. Twitter is not a sales tool, nor is it best utilized for overt marketing. It is a conversation. It is giving value.
  • 23. Twitter for business purposes is like an after-hours mixer or business cocktail party.
