Is this just a phase or will this be the next form of interaction to replace our blogs?
Today, many media social networkers are twalking or twyping with a form of speech impediment. But this is no speech impediment…this is the new world of Twitter.
Twitter is a VERY popular FREE micro-social network. A service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages (no longer than 140 characters). http://www.twitter.com
Twusted Twitter Tools:
Today, there are many tools for Twitter users and there are more and more surfacing all the time. Which tools will prove valuable will depends on our needs and purposes for tweeting.
Again, if you want to *Conquer All Obstacles* (just like blogging), you must ask yourself…
Why am I tweeting? If you are trying to build an author platform, target an audience, and generate traffic back to your site where your books are sold, then these are a few tools that you cannot afford to be without:

See your Twitter profile page…
1.) Bio – Most followers will read the one-line bio under “SETTINGS”. Include a direct link to a profile page rather than sending them to the homepage profile.

2.) Follow-up: Investigate your followers. Send a direct message.
3.) Feeds: A simple feed that allows your twitter post to automatically show up on your blog or website is by clicking on “SETTINGS”, scrolling down to “MORE INFO URL” and clicking on the “BLUE LINK – YOU CAN ALSO ADD TWITTER TO YOUR SITE HERE” and just follow the steps.
4.) Promote: Advertise your @prempromotions where ever and all over. Include your twitter link to your signature, add comments on twitter discussions, and leave a direct message with others who are following you.
A writer must conquer all obstacles.
