This weeks social networking minute will cover the basics of setting up a Twitter account. I had to set up a Twitter account for a new website I am creating. The site, StartGap.Com, is up, but there is no content on the site at the current moment. Feel free to stare at the blank page, if you wish? In the meantime, the new twitter account is http://www.twitter.com/thestartupgap.
Now that we have that fun business out of the way, let’s discuss Twitter for a second. While most companies have a number of their social media accounts, I find that Twitter often gets left behind. For some reason people are afraid of using Twitter, because they feel that it is not a useful social network.
I have heard reasoned from many a business owner, it is only 140 characters! My answer to that is yeah, but they are a powerful 140 characters when tweeted properly.
Social Networking Minute: Setting Up A Twitter Account
Notes from Setting Up A Twitter Account
As you noticed, the basic account can be set up in one minute, however, the extraneous stuff like doing the first five connections, verifying the email, and setting up the profile might take a few minutes longer. However, considering the fact that you only have to do this once, setting up an will maybe take 10-15 minutes total. After that you are free to start tweeting on a regular basis.
