5 Quick Twitter Tips for Newbies

  1. Create your profile with an image.  Nobody follows people who look like one of these:
    Default Twavatar
  2. Create a Twitter background.
  3. Provide links.  For example, don’t just tweet “Adobe CS5 will be release soon!  Yay!”  Add a URL where people can get more info.
  4. Because URLs are long, you need a URL Shortener.
    1. If you use Firefox, get this URLShortener plugin.
    2. If you use TweetDeck, you can have it automatically shorten your URLs.
    3. Otherwise, you can shorten your URLs at http://bit.ly.
  5. When replying to a tweet, start with the twitterer’s handle (e.g, @natdunn,…) and provide some context about the original tweet, especially if your reply isn’t immediate.
