Ten Top Tweeters to Tail

If you haven’t discovered Twitter yet, you’re missing out.

I know what you’re thinking: it’s yet another pesky online service like Facebook and LinkedIn and Ecademy, all swallowing up my valuable time.

Well, it’s not. Twitter is:

Fast – it’s a lot like text messaging.
Frugal – it won’t eat up your day.
Fun
Free – yup, it won’t cost you a penny.

So, what’s it all about? Well, think of it as being a bit like sending a text message to as many people as you want. Each ‘tweet’ is only 140 characters long, like a text message.

And who gets these messages? They’re your ‘followers’: people who choose to hear what you’ve got to say.

This means two big things:

  1. You can follow people who you find interesting – it’s a great way to pick up information fast, without wading through buckets of unwanted stuff.
  2. And you can market yourself very effectively by building up an audience of followers (they’re a bit like subscribers to a newsletter: in this case, a very short newsletter indeed).

You can sign up and play around at twitter.com.

And when you do, here are ten of our favourite tweeters for small business – try following them and you’ll not only get a great idea of what Twitter’s all about, but you’ll also pick up great help for your business too!

  1. I didn’t realize until I had finished reading that this was an old post, but I still enjoyed it. Followed a couple of the folks you recommended. My problem is finding time to keep up with all the tweets. Between Facebook (which I really like better) and Twitter, it’s a wonder I get any work done at all! But thanks for the list. I’m eager to see what @SOHOBusiness in particular has to share.
