140 Twitter Tips

  17. 17. #17 @bradjward Dont get caught up in the numbers game. 100 relevant followers on Twitter is worth more than 1000 followers any day of the week.
  18. 18. #18 @makingcjc learn ow to RT (re-tweet) it not only helps you stay active, but lets people know what your interested in.
