Twitter is becoming an increasingly powerful social media platform. Far from being solely a venue for celebrity gossip and political discourse, it's home to a vibrant business community that includes a growing number of leaders, academics, and professionals interested in business performance improvement via Lean, Six Sigma, Agile, etc.

In this "Twittorial," Karen provides a brief overview about:

* How Twitter works
* How to get the most from it
* Nuances & minefields you need to be aware of
* Recommendations for how to proceed

The content focuses on Karen's views, experience, and personal Twitter practices that she has honed over 4 years and will, understandably, not include the full range of topics related to Twitter.
