Twitter Basics for Journalists & Recovering Journos - - 0 views

    good intro for twitter for journos

    Twitter Basics for Journalists & Recovering Journos
    On Saturday, at the annual conference of the Society of Environmental Journalists, I gave a talk to an audience of mostly journalists explaining the basics of blogs, social media, and search visibility. People had lots of questions, more than I could get to in the session. I was getting stopped in halls, at parties, and even in bathrooms, to be asked things like, "Does it really make that big a difference if I blog under my own domain?" (Answer: Yes!)

    OK, I don't mind answering those questions. That's really why I went to this conference - because I know that journalists (many of whom are facing potential layoffs, or who have already been laid off) are in dire need of online media awareness and skills.

    So I'm going to do a bunch of posts answering questions, because it's more efficient to do that via blogging. This is one of those posts.

    By now you've probably heard about Twitter, the social media service that allows you to publish posts of 140 characters max.

    What Twitter does, in a nutshell: This service allows you to receive posts ("tweets") from other Twitter users whom you choose to "follow." Likewise, other Twitter users can choose to follow you. When you follow someone on Twitter, their tweets show up in reverse chronological order in the "tweetstream" that scrolls down the Twitter home page when you're logged in. The effect is somewhat like an ongoing Headline News version of what's happening in the minds and worlds of people you know or find interesting.

    When Tweeting Less Can Help You be a More Effective Twitter User

    by Darren Rowse on November 4, 2008

    "How much do I need to Tweet each day to build a successful Twitter presence?"

    I get this question a fair bit from new Twitter users and while I think Tweet frequency is an important topic (one I'll cover in a future post here at TwiTip) I think that there's another more important aspect of successful use of Twitter that I've not heard many people talk about…

    Silence….. (cue the crickets and tumbleweed).

    Regular tweets may well be an important part of successfully using Twitter but one thing that I've found equally important is regularly 'not tweeting'.
