|There is a whole other world out there with it's very own language. The land of twitter and if we are not careful they will take over the world and we will be left behind. When I was in the states last year attending the National Realtor Conference with 15,000 sales people it blew me away how many sessions they had running on online networking and how in many cases 70% of their leads were coming through blogging or tweeting. With online social networks being the size of some of our largest countries in the world I decided it was about time I got a bit of a handle on twitter. I joined about 3 months ago and I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the lack of interactivity I thought "is anyone out there or am I just tweeting to myself" Who's the twit?... Anyway things came to a head when a friend was showing me 'twitter grader' where you can monitor your activity. I was very upset to find I was flat lining! being a bit of an over achiever this was not a result I was used to. I have not admitted defeat and the battle is now on. I am throwing myself into learning about twitter and will keep you up to date with my findings. If like me you are daunted by innovation and all this new technology then just ask for help. Most of us have a younger niece or nephew who is about 5 who is very up to date with how everything works. I decided to cook dinner for a friend in exchange for their twitter powers. Feel free to join me and help me out, apparently having friends and followers helps . My twitter name is: kirstyspraggon.
