As most of you know I use Twitter for a few things but I am not very prolific on it and that is not because I don’t have things to say, it just comes down to time and deciding which conversations to join into.
“Twitter, despite its many extraordinary uses, can be a bit of a head scratcher when you first get started. From hashtags to Trending Topics, Twitter is a world of nomenclature and established conventions that are alien to newcomers.” [Mashable] I also admit when it first came out I really didn’t get it but I captured my name for brand protection purposes and now with the Twitter-verse growing by the minute, I am glad I did.
But you may be asking how your business can properly use Twitter and get some return on the time invested. Sure, you can start with how to get on Twitter if you aren’t already, but if you are already, you need a guidebook and Mashable has delivered.
Ironically with all the mentions and tutorials/tips for Twitter there is not a single hub for serving up resources and how-tos for all Twitter users, from beginner to expert.
That’s why they put together The Twitter Guide Book (twitter.mashable.com) and according to their site it is “a one-stop shop for getting up to speed with everything Twitter, from managing your Twitter stream to promoting a business”.
As you can see in the screenshot below they have also included the latest Twitter lists and news from Mashable, plus community reviews of Twitter and related services from their sister site, Blippr. The Twitter Guide Book will be cultivated, maintained and updated to bring the latest tips and tricks as Twitter evolves.
