I may do a bunch of these short posts concerning what Twitter wants you to know but may not tell you. Here is some valuable information I have learned this week from Twitter. This information has been shared over Twitter by various people I follow and I greatly appreciate it.
1:Twitter is now growing at rate of 1,382%. They've had 7 million unique visitors in the month of February. Great time to be a part of this social network.
2:Twitter is a great place to "break the ice" and develop relationships, not to bombard others with your product or opportunity.
3:Be yourself on Twitter. Remember you can't please everyone.
4:If you like something someone tweets, let them know or RT (re-tweet)them.
5:Tweet information with good content that you are interested in. It doesn't have to be amazing.
6:There are talks of twitter chatter being put under surveillance. So beware of the personal information you tweet.
7:Step away from Twitter every now and again.
8:Follow people that interest you. Don't follow people just for high numbers.
9:No harm in using Twitter properly to make money, they definitely make money using you. Its a great relationship that will only benefit everyone in the long run.
10:Twitter whenever you want, just do it with good intent.
This is just a short list of basic information but its very powerful for those who take advantage of it.
Here's is a list of this week's Twitterers who I've found very helpful and informative:
@askdklive, @jimmydavis, @doshdosh, @the_gman, @guykawasaki,@manifestmmind.
There are a bunch of other people with great content on Twitter but these are just a few of my picks for this week. I will be on the search in the days to come.
