Here is a good blog post on how to use Twitter...it was recommended to me, and I think it's a good quick read...

I know a lot of people here use Twitter to promote their work, but if you're relatively new to it...like myself, for instance...you pick up some useful advice like using "Hashtags" and URL shorteners...

HootSuite is a social media management system for brand management created by Ryan Holmes in 2008. The system’s user interface takes the form of a dashboard, and supports social network integrations for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Foursquare, MySpace, WordPress and Mixi.

Anyway...I think if you actually know how to use this, you can type something and it goes out to every social media site on the planet at once...

I did manage to join and log on...I have to say it displays Facebook news feeds better than the FB Timeline thingy...but haven't really figured out how to post anything...I'm told it's a useful thing though...

This is related, because link shorteners, and Twitter often go together...

for you Techies . . . check it out . . .

What the Heck is Bit.ly?
When you're adding your hyperlink, make sure that it is a bit.ly code so that you're able to track where your traffic is coming from. This allows you to experiment with the signatures and see what works best in terms of converting curious people into readers. If you're seeing a huge surge of traffic from one particular signature, this is one way you’ll be able to tell.
Bit.ly allows you to take a link, any link, and track not only how many people click on it, but also where they came from, when they clicked on it etc. Why is this so magical? Well, if you find that you get more traffic when you post on a Wednesday night, guess what time you should focus your relationship building efforts? What about experimenting with your signature or changing your profile avatar? Switch them up and keep track of how much traffic you gain or lose.
You can do the same thing with your excerpt page. Change the excerpt, add to it, cut it, try different links and see which gives you the best results. That's why you don't want to explode too fast. You want to be able to track these changes, because you only want to do things that work and stop doing things that don't.
