A relatively late entrant to the www.twitter.com phenomenon, I started uploading my blog posts on my my twitter page http://twitter.com/decisionstats

Doing so brought some traffic to me instantly, but I decided to be smarted about using twitter this time, rather than just fritter away time.

Here are some insights which I saw in action and maybe they are common knowledge but here goes-

1) Twitter automatically converts links into www.tinyurl.com links so it shortens even the longest link that you have

2) Uploading address book, including anyone who ever wrote an email to you as part of a discussion or reading group, takes a tiny amount of time. Then click follow all ( or at least those for a particular profile –here analytics and data) and you are off.

3) Twitter manners seem to consider it customary to follow people who are following you.Thus an audience or initial leads are assured. Rest content is king.

4) Reading tweets ( or twitter messages) is a great break as it gives you a real time insight on what is happening within the world of your domain or people who belong to same profession or same personal profile as to you. However writing personal tweets takes time,and a healthy dose of self love.

5) Twitter is free. And there are enough twitter tools to ensure it gets updated from your RSS feed automatically so it is one more tool to ensure publicity for your self or your organization.

6) Search for people giving or receiving same services as you provide to get maximized target response.

7) Link up your Face book, and your Yahoo instant messenger with Twitter using applications built exactly for this.

No ,LinkedIn does not have a Twitter app but that should change soon.

Happy twittering with tweets on www.twitter.com ( ..what a tongue twister !!)
