Anyone that follows you on twitter will than see your “tweet” which can also be sent to any of your twitter followers cell phones through SMS, it also means your followers can re-tweet your message to all their followers.  Set up an application for Twitter.

PROFESSIONALISM Watch your P’s & Q’s Be careful about mixing business with pleasure Follow but don’t expect to be followed Don’t try to “market” on Twitter; try to “share” instead Use a multiple Twitter account client to manage your accounts.
