Things To Do With Twitter

    February 19, 2008

I am relatively new to Twitter. I have only been using it for a short while and I find it an excellent tool for stream of consciousness thinking and quick communication to online communities that I interact with on a regular basis.

With that said I also must say that the recent reliability issues have made me question whether or not it is a long term tool I want to continue using, still I believe I will wait a bit longer before making my final judgment.

Kevin Dugan has recently posted what I think are some quality Twitter tips and provided some excellent resources to keep on top of all the newest Twitter applications. Kevin’s post covers the following topics:

Be a Good Twitter Citizen
Send Direct Messages Faster
Twitter Karma
Gauge Topic Traction
Visualize, Data Mine
Fun with Twitter
What Does Twitter Look Like?
Save the World
Know the News. First
Take Twitter with You
Twitter by the Ton

While there is a lot more that Twitter can do, I think this is an excellent compellation, especially for new Twitter users, on some of the potential options Twitter provides.

Also as a reminder built an extremely large list of Internet Marketers who are on Twitter. If you are interested in joining the conversation please feel free to do so.
