    I really appreciate this list. I’ve been on twitter but couldn’t get it up and running like my facebook account. The links were especially helpful.

    Thanks again,
    Paula

      Paula, one thing I forgot to mention is that I added my twitter url to my business card so that my current clients could follow me. I also synced my twitter account so that it can update my facebook status. If you need instructions on how to do that, let me know.

    I started to generate a list of tools on the following blog.

    Another element of twitter and I did not mention it in the post is hashtagging or hashtags. Because Twitter provided no easy way to group tweets or add extra data, the Twitter community came up with their own way: hashtags. A hashtag is similar to other web tags- it helps add tweets to a category. Hashtags have the ‘hash’ or ‘pound’ symbol (#) preceding the tag, like so: #traffic, #followfriday, #hashtag. Hashtags can occur anywhere in the tweet: some people just add a # before a word they’re using.

    If you add a hashtag to your tweet and you have a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag (keyword) may find your tweet. Although any keyword with a # in front could be considered a hashtag, there are many commonly used hashtags. Aside from not using hashtags for spam purposes, there are no formal rules for hashtag usage. A few simple best practices we recommend include only using hashtags on tweets relevant to the topic, and not over-tagging a single tweet. (This article, with all the hashtag information you ever wanted to know, recommends using hashtags sparingly, and using one to three per tweet, at most.)

  4. When I first wrote the above blog post, I was no where near 1000 tweets. Several months later, here I am with more than 1000 tweets. I do not protect mt tweets and occassionally I get Tweet spam and some inappropriate people following me. I simple block those people and report them to twitter when it happens. More often than not, having unprotected tweets allows you to get new followers and develop relationships with your new tweet friends.

    Two other apps I like using is Lists and CoTweets. I will blog about them another time.

    Hi Audeliz, This is an excellent blog post, very informative. I belong to twitter but I haven't done much with the site. After reading your blog, I'll have to look into it a little more. I'll try your suggestions.
    Thanks for posting.

I do not protect my tweets and occasionally I get Tweet spam and some inappropriate people following me. I simply block those people who are of an unsavory character and report them to twitter when it happens. More often than not, having unprotected tweets allows you to get new followers and develop relationships with your new tweet friends.
