  • Looks great... I need to be a better Twitter user and this is motivating me to do so. Question.. I thought I heard somewhere that even though you can tweet 140 characters, the message should really be 120 to leave space for hashtags? true?
    And... do you have any advice on twitter etiquette/courtesies?
