Vandervelde On Twitter

If you agonize over what to write about yourself on an Internet forum or chat profile or if you can’t bear to change your “Status” line on your Facebook profile; then maybe you won’t like Twitter. But if you love communicating to hundreds, or if you are lucky, thousands of followers in multiple 140 typed-characters status updates and “mini-blogs” then you’ll feel right at home.

And if you’re not quite sure about how to get started using Twitter, then let me recommend “Twitter how-to for the digital immigrants among us” written by my good friend, Kathleen Vandervelde.

I think Kathy excels at these type articles and she gives some good advice for the would-be Tweeple out there.

“Write something meaningful about yourself, your interests and/or your work in your profile. Include your blog or organization’s website url. It can make a big difference when others are deciding whether you are worth following. Remember, you’re trying to build two-way relationships here. If you won’t give up anything about yourself, why would others want to interact with you? I, for one, will not follow anyone who doesn’t offer a clue about who they are or what they’re about in their profile.”

After you get through reading the article, sign up at Twitter and Follow Kathleen. And while you are at it–You can follow that comedian, Dave Robison, too.
