I need not dabble into the critical analysis of what twitter really is to me as we all know it is a microblogging service platform which allows for short message updates known as tweets to be sent alongside with location information depending on user preference.
It has recently become the biggest playes in the game rubbing shoulders with the likes of social networking giants like facebook and Myspace due
to its good use too as a social networking tool.
Since its public launch in august 2006 at San
Advantages of Twitter:
1 easy to join taking less than 3 minutes to create an account and start tweeting
2 a 2-way dual mode of communication which means you dont have to follow those that follow you
3 it offers a good means of
promoting your blog,generating traffic to it
4 you get to be first to know of a breaking news firsthand
5 a free platform for advertising your self and brand
6 brief but on point information embeded in tweets and lots more
Disadvantages of Twitter:
1 the ease in account means everyone has a twitter account which is virtually dormant and so the twitter server easily gets overloaded
2 A too brief profile with only 160 characters and a picture at a time
3 Chances are that the people who follow you dont follow your message
Proper Use Of Twitter:
1 Have a short,simple well written and straight to the point bio of yourself
2 Your following should be on the basis of quality and not because you expect a follow back(quantity)
3 Tweet relevant informations only e.g now eating french fries, who the hell! cares what you’re currently eating?
4 As a matter of must never follow celebs,you are
as a groupie plus they rarely ever add anything interesting other than tweeting links to what they sell
5 Link your blog to your twitter account to direct traffic to it
6 Maintain a very strict follower to following ratio,preferably 1:1
7 Join twitter directories,this makes it easier for people of same interest to find and follow you
8 Tweeting via web is generall stressful,use good third party apps
Still having problem contact me via my twitter i’d be glad to help
