How to use Twitter (pt.2)


Blogging edition.

During my search for how to get the most out of Twitter, I came across an article from problogger.net entitled “How to use Twitter – Tips for Bloggers“. Twitter is a powerful tool for communicating and sharing information, and so I thought I would share the tips of the blog here. The tips are written below, however I recommend viewing the article to get the most out of the tips. Only the headings are stated here, as the intention of this post is not to copy word-for-word the blog but to point bloggers in the right direction. Blogging and Tweeting go hand-in-hand, I always think, as both are forms of communicating and sharing information. Twitter is a powerful tool for publicising blogs, and engaging with followers.
