Twitter tips

What good information, Stephen! It's true that Twitter is like a crowded cocktail party -- and the people that get listened to are the ones who know how to listen, give out interesting information, don't try to dominate, and give credit to others for good ideas or catchy comments.

The people who use Twitter to promote themselves exclusively, not paying attention to what others are saying, are ignored. But those who utter intriguing or helpful or clever tweets get our attention.

Be generous -- when you spot a good tweet, retweet (RT) it. If you're hoping to be retweeted, keep your tweet to 120 characters or less, so that others can RT it without editing it to stay under the 140 character requirement.

More than OK -- I'm adding it to my resume! Many thanks.
