Getting Started on Twitter

Succinct status updates are the key to Twitter’s success, with users sharing content by ‘retweeting’ or liking it. Did you know that you can incorporate interesting Tweets into your webpages or blogs by using the Twitter sharing widget; these are called 'Embedded Tweets'

Define your objectives and assess how it can add value. The main reason people visit Twitter is to “discover something new and interesting.” Like any social media platform, there is no compulsion for brands to have a Twitter profile. There are only two reasons for being on Twitter: your audience is there, engaged and active; and you have something to say.
