  1. Hi
    I’m a newbie in the Twitter thingi, but I have find that its really cool tool
    if you want to promote yourself (or any other service you may like).
    Its not the most intuitive and easy to understand.

    But thanks G.d for ppl like you who helps ppl like me at their first steps into the Twitter system.

    Thank you for the post

    Happy it helped, Amit! I’m a newbie too, which is why I’ve shared the links I’ve found 🙂

    I’ve been talking to colleagues who are really into it. They say the best use for Twitter is using it to post links to useful articles, blog posts, etc. It’s also about tapping into likeminded Twitter communities which keeps you ‘in the loop’… And I guess that indirectly gets your name out there!

    Happy twittering!

    Lou
