Twitter Basics for Internet Marketers
There’s no doubting it. You can barely turn on the TV, look in a
newspaper or log onto the internet these days without seeing
something about Twitter
As you probably know, Twitter is a social networking website where
users post “tweets” (essentially a short message or ‘status update’)
about what they are doing at a particular point in time.
A “tweet” can only be up to 140 characters in length, so the
messages are very short – ie. It is micro-blogging, rather than full
length blog posts.
A tweet can be a short message or a message to another user, and
it can include words, numbers and even hyperlinks.
Twitter is used by all kinds of people – from private individuals who
use it to keep track of their interests and follow people they know,
through to celebrities who use it promote themselves and
communicate with fans, and businesses of all sizes – from small
local firms through to global multinational organisations.
