Twitter is quickly leading the way in the social media world. It’s a great way of connecting with other people who share your interests or who might be interested in what you have to say. Something even greater than facebook  has happened and if you’re not part of it, you’re missing out. The new trend I’m referring to is Twitter.

Twitter, is a free service and is a combination of a microblogging tool and a social networking site. Twitter is a fantastic way to get more traffic to your blog and build a relationship with your readership.

Twitter is changing the way that many people connect and communicate online and should be an indispensable part of your overall marketing plan for your blogs and websites. Twitter is free to join and you can get set up with an account in a matter of just a few minutes.

Twitter has two main components. Just like social networking sites such as MySpace or Facebook, you can add “followers” and follow other people as well. They’ll receive your updates and you’ll receive theirs.

What is unique is that your messages are limited just to 140 characters, which is why some people call it a “microblogging” tool. You have to keep your messages brief and to the point.

Sometimes it’s a real challenge to get the point across in the allotted space, but it also leaves room for a lot of creativity! Coming up with ways to say what you have to say in that small space is part of the fun of Twitter. It makes you think about the core aspects of the message you are trying to convey.

Hope this helps! You can follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/EOTMintern , twitter.com/EOTMintern2, twitter.com/EOTMPR and twitter.com/EOTMpromotions
