WITH TWITTER AS A
Twitter is minimalistic and you don’t really have to
be “friends” with everyone to have your say
communicated to them.
In fact, with twitter, you can connect to a larger
audience in an instance and jump in any trending
conversations that are being carried out about
any event happening anywhere in the world
Signing up for a twitter account is easy. All you
need to do is:
go to twitter.com
submit your credentials
check for the verification email
and you are all set to tweet.

need to ensure that your profile is 100% complete
and doesn’t look like a sales pitch.

with your followers and strangers.
JUST DO IT!
Never be afraid to jump in a twitter

any conversation, that you can see happening, are
open for you to join.
So if you feel that your opinion or argument might
help in building a positive conversation; dive in.
This way, not only you’ll have your opinion heard,
but there are chances that people in the
conversation might start following you.
Tweet links to articles, interesting blog posts and
infographics when possible.
But don’t overdo it. Sharing information on
twitter is good, but doing it every second or
minute is spam.
There are a myriad of paid and unpaid auto follow,
un-follow, auto dm tools available.
Your twitter account is your personality and you
aren’t a bot ; unless you auto reply, of course.
Be as genuine as possible and connect with people
personally without those pushy sales tweets.
• Complimenting works better than blatant criticism
• Never forget to complement if someone tweets
some great link, a status update or any multimedia.
