How Can I Use Twitter You have 140 characters (including spaces) to say what you have to say. You can ‘follow’ people and what they say, they can follow you and what you say. You can connect with anyone, for any reason, at any time. www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk
Terminology Tweet : an individual post. RT (Retweet) : re-telling someone else’s tweet. @username : open message to specific person.

What do I say? Make it  relevant . Make it  count . Ask questions ; you will get answers from your network. Think  about how your network might retweet; your network  will  grow as a result of a good tweet. Provide  value  through your tweet. Be  yourself . www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk
