|Here is some general information about Twitter as I
so I can correct this data:
Twitter is a time stream. I like to compare it to a ticker
tape or a telegraph. The messages posted are called
"Tweets" and are limited to a maximum of 140
characters including the spaces etc. Just below on the
left is a live view of my Twitter account! (Instructions on
setting up a Twitter account are here or if you are very
new on Twitter, click here. )
As a note "RT" means retweet which means you are
passing on someone else's tweet. It doesn't mean

please! #Quote #AwesomeTeam" Carl Watts.
The power of the internet is the spreading of information.
Each RT spreads information, knowledge, further and
further and potentially can circle the globe and change
mankind. This is done by a simple RT by you, helping
mankind. In advance, thanks for helping!*
People that I am following can post something and it appears on my time stream. I look and where I choose, I
can communicate to them or go to the sites they list. I've done this many times. So it works.
There are some general practices that will help you get followers. Post a picture and a bio! This makes you more
real. People are much more likely to follow you! Also, some software will exclude following you because of no picture.
Also, with a bio, people can locate you and follow you based on the key words in your bio. So post one!

kept on how much a person is supported. #FF is
Follow Friday. Use a lot on Thursday through
Saturday. It may help you expand!
Next is that you need to follow people back that
follow you. Communication is not a one way flow of
information. If you only outflow at people, you will
find them unfollowing you. I saw an example of
that. Same with RTing. If you want people to RT
your post, RT theirs!
I suggest you start with one account and learn

messages. Twitter will shut you down. The
software sold by various companies such as
Tweet Adder is sold for a single user, 5, 10 and an
unlimited number of accounts! I use this and it
works very well & cuts the work down that is
required to obtain followers.
Twitter rules on multiple accounts seem to be contradict themselves. But
the main point is not to post ANY duplicate Postings on several accounts
or even on one!

If I post something more than once, with some variation, I believe a new
batch of people will probably view the data. I don't feel it would be the same
people viewing though it could be. I have of thousands of followers on
Twitter, Plaxo and other social sites. The number is growing daily so it is
difficult to say how many people will view or how many will follow the link.
By varying the posting at different times of the day, hopefully I get many
more viewers. Often, I vary the wording, as different things catch different

many contacts on the above social networks. Plaxo limits you to 1000
connections but some got through beyond that. So I opened a second
account and have started to grow that!

A word of caution, do not be too aggressive. You might ask what's "aggressive" and I can't answer that question. But that
is the way Twitter has the rules. Just keep your following and unfollowing at a low rate. Twitter currently suspends without

I pay attention to these. You can also visit Twitter Advanced for more info!

normally, I'm there to pass on your communications. Please don't abuse my willingness to help. It's completely based on

How I use Twitter & Why
"Tweet Adder" most recommended software! Carl
Man survives best when man is helping man survive! A person is only as valuable as he helps or assist others! Need
some help in life without being told what to do, what to think, contact me. Have a great day! Carl

*The use of a hash mark "#" in front of a word is tracking method. It is used to establish trends and allows a subject to be
located easier. Don't over use #s. "A hash tag is similar to other web tags- it helps add tweets to a category" per Twitter.
See full data: http://help.twitter.com/entries/49309-what-are-hashtags-the-symbol. On Fridays, if you mention someone
else or do a "shout out" where your recommending or commending your followers, add #FF as the of these are tracked.
* URL Shortening. If you are preparing your tweets in advance, you may want to set up a
shortening service that will take your URL and shrink it down. This allows you to get more text
in the message. You can go to this page http://is.gd/instructions.php Grab the bookmarklet
and drag it to your bookmark bar. Your read to shorten the URL of any page. Is.gd is the
shortest and fastest shortening service I have found. Enjoy!
On URL shortening, Is.gd recently added a page that you readers will see if you shorten with
them. This page is a warning and cautions people that the shortened link can take you any
where! Personally, I do not like this. So Is.gd is fasted and easiest but no longer most
recommended URL shortening.
I recommend Ow.ly for shortening. Very fast. Go to www.ow.ly. You can enter your URL
and the Captcha or login with Twitter. I recommend logging in. Once logged in, you enter
URL and hit "Shrink It" or hit enter on you keyboard and you get a shortened URL!
You can drag their logo to your bookmark bar for speed of use.
Key to all this is an internet not controlled by government or a few corporations.
