How to get started on Twitter ... and who are these people?

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
With much of social media, there's the "getting started" problem. For example, suppose you've just activated an account at Twitter. What next? You're following no one, and no one is following you. Not much fun, is it?

If you've been contemplating joining the Twitter community, here's some excellent advice on getting started from David Meerman Scott, author of The New Rules of Marketing & PR. This book, by the way, is an excellent introduction to using social media.

One way to get going is to generate a feed of Twitter users in your community. You can do this at twitterlocal, or by using the advanced search function at Twitter.

Another approach? Figure out who the power Twitter users are, and follow them. Or, you could follow the top Tweeters at TwitterGrader, which purports to analyze the influence of Twitter users.

But don't look for me on the list. I'm taking Twitter pass/fail.
