Do yout "Tweet"?
Increasingly, clients request for social media administration. I have yet to "Tweet" -- but found myself today purusing Twitter.com to learn more & not appear completely ignorant to the platform in an upcoming Social Media Proposal requested by a client. So -- having said all of that -- do you Tweet? For business or leisure? How often? What is your #1 tip?
I tweet for both business and leisure. Although, I have to say that tweeting for business is easier than telling them about your pen got missing when you were abt to write a novel.
I have found that tweeting really works if you give it some extra time by going through others tweets as well. Since tweets also go along with search engines, tweeting for business makes sense.
Other than that, since I am not into social networking that much, I don't spend significant amount of time with twitter and facebook.
I'm no techno queen, but I do enjoy using different gadgets and tools. Some time ago I declared I'd never use Twitter as I thought it would be similar to the throw away comments etc on Facebook. Well, I relented! Twitter is nothing like Facebook and I use this media platform for both personal and business avenues. In particular I've been able to link into different sectors by using something as simple as a # symbol. A great tool!
One aspect that really grabs me is the 140 character limit per Tweet. If you can't say it within that limit, too bad. This keeps the Tweets short, sharp and interesting. I have been able to follow and be followed by some amazing people. Through these contacts I have found information that has been vital to upgrading my web page and business. From the non-believer to OMG I haven't accessed my Tweets today, I'd say give this social media a try and see what it can do for you.
I've not entered the world of Twitter and Tweeting just yet and presently have no intention of doing so.
I have to admit I'm not a big fan of facebook either with the exception of keeping in touch with a number of distant friends and swapping holiday photos.
I know too many people whose lives seem to be taken over by Twitter and Facebook that I don't wish to go the same way with especially as I previously had a gf that confessed to 'Facebook Stalking' me!
I use twitter for both business and leisure. I usually post three or four comments per week socially. Once a week I tweet all of my hubs in the hope that they will be read by some of my followers. I have only been on twitter for around 8 months but have 160 followers. I think that my number one tip would be to tweet regularly in order to gain some followers. You are more likely to have your hubs read with the more followers you have. Read other peoples tweets too and make some comments. Sometimes you can actually get some great ideas from tweets that some people put on. The only problem with twitter is just like MazioCreate said, the 140 characters is quite limiting to promote yourself or your work.
I tweet mostly for leisure, and share links to my hubs too!
I don't tweet that often, probably once/twice a day I think....
But I have never really counted though.
One tip would be that you should interact with the other tweeters as well. ie. reply to their tweets in order to gain followers...
The answer is yes I tweet and have almost four hundred tweets to date. I primarily tweet for business purposes identifying my activities such as new articles on this site and others. However, I also tweet to post interesting quotes or other information that I feel would be beneficial to those who are my followers. I now have over 450 followers which I think is a great achievement.
Tweeting gains me exposure not only for my business but also for my expertise in the topics I write about and post on Twitter.
It is a great tool to use and I highly recommend it to anyone.

I have never Tweeted my articles and I feel as though that may be a problem. I know I can do better with views, but I just need to know where to post my links. I need to generate more organic backlinks and I am thinking that Twitter may be the place to go. Has it helped you with your views?Thanks!

Earlier I used to hit the tweet button as soon as I published a new Hub no matter what time it was. Not any more. I realized that timing is the key on Twitter. If you tweet in the night when most of your followers are asleep or early in the morning when they are busy with their motions your tweets...

Gee , that's too bad ,....... That simply informs anyone with any brains that the mainstream media cannot stand being unable to filter in or out their own agenda to press room releases ? If the rest of the world has social media and uses it in an immature , uninformed and...

Why do Hub-bers and Hub-bies not tweet each others posts more?It seems to me that a great way of spreading a great hub is by tweeting - and yet I see so little of it done. Why?

I have been posting my hubpages articles on twitter for the last three months on a daily basis. I calculate approximately 100 hundred times each of my last ten articles, but that doesn´t show up in my traffic sources page. What can be the problem? I have been posting all my articles at facebook,...
