    What's #ff? And how do the other # categories work?

    I feel like a kindie kid who's only allowed to use the big, fat, clunky 2B pencil b/c their dexterity isn't good enough to hld a pen yet, thrown into a first year uni tute.

        great big_smile I like it. Actually this is the only truth about Twitter, and every other article written in the praise of Twitter is utter nonsense.

    Thanks! I found a few tutorials but they are pitched a level below (i.e. 'what IS Twitter?). I know what it is, just need to learn to drive it now.

      Nope it died, rummer is it was crushed under the weight of a whale dropped from a great height by a handful of Sparrows. (African Sparrows obviously.)

      of course its still around. although, this may or may not be a good thing. i actually wrote 2 days ago about the horrible usage of DMs (direct messages) . i prefer to call them direct spams.

      I get quite a bit of response from Twitter but I also have a couple thousand followers. It all depends on what your writing, the frequency of your tweets, and the number of followers you have.

      The problem is that conversions are terrible but the benefits of traffic can be great. With Tweets, you can't pre-sell your offer so you need the traffic to your site. You can find me on Twitter through my profile.

    I make money using Twitter.  I tweet my content and I get a nice amount of traffic that way.  I get paid to create and manage others Twitter accounts.  I've used to meet new clients, talked to top bloggers, gotten backlinks and increased my page rank.

    If you're not using Twitter, you are losing out on a lot!

    Glad I stumbled on this. I signed up to get sponsored but after a few offers it seems to have dried up. But getting paid to manage a twitter account sounds like a dream. I am a total addict.  Oh you prob'ly found this out but..#hashtag it's just a way of 'grouping' tweets. A good example is tv. In the uk Big Brother 10 fans added the hashtag #bb10. That way all the 'proper' #bb10 fans could chat about the show. It helps searching. Although at certain times of day (night) the hashtags seem to get overwhelming. They will take up 8 or 9 of the TTs (trending topics). Thats the power of a hashtag.

    It is true that some people know how to succeed on twitter, and it shows by evaluating the conversion rate and the number of people that are following that person.  Some people know how to succeed more than others.  But the truth is, twitter is constantly evolving just like much of the internet, so you could be an expert one month but if you do not stay on top of technology and if you cannot think in an innovative way.  Your chances of success on twitter will be less likely.

    I use Twitter mostly to drive traffic to my Blog, my Hubs and my Zazzle store. I don't have many followers, but I use the #hashtag to get my tweets seen by the right groups of people.

    If you like reading your horoscope follow me @DailyDivination smile

    Apart from that I like following some celebs and seeing what they're up to... Also, news updates. Sometimes I have heard 'news' on Twitter before it's actually been on the news on TV!
