Getting started with Twitter (a five minute tutorial)

Why use Twitter?

  • To engage
  • To learn
  • To teach and share
  • To find out the latest news
"I learn more every day on Twitter than from the three major newspapers and ten magazines I used to read." - Joe Waters

#hashtag: used to mark keywords or topics in a tweet








If you think of a great hashtag, let me know! I need to grow my list!

How do you create a network on Twitter?

  • You find people who do what you do
  • You find people who are experts in doing what you do
  • You find organizations that are all about doing what you do
  • You find cool people who are experts in different areas of the field
  • Look at who all these people follow. You can find great folks to follow based on who your folks are following.
