I had been toying with the idea of signing up for a Twitter account. But it wasn’t until me and Jamillah exchanged some emails about it, that I’ve decided to finally join (find me here!).
I always thought Twitter was just for celebrities and businesses looking to promote themselves. But I’ve since learned that it really is a great way to connect with other bloggers and people that share the same interests, whether it’s answering questions, sharing links and keeping in touch with the people you support, as well as the people that support you. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s an effective tool for reaching out to new readers and blogger buds.
Now, I’m going to need some help. I feel like an 90 year-old that is just now learning how to use a computer (“Eh?! What’s this button do?!”). I understand that it works just like a Facebook status. But what are the rules? What I mean is, is there a Twitter etiquette? Usually with blogs, it’s bad form to comment on someone’s post with just a “hey, come see my blog and follow me”. Is there something equivalent to that for Twitter?
I’m also trying to figure out a few other issues. For example: when to use hashtags, how to add the logo to my blog, etc.
Any tips for a newbie Twitterista? And I do mean any
. I’m so clueless, it’s actually sad.
