PRECAUTIONS Setting Up Twitter for updates during work hours Twitter is a “status update” or “micro-blogging” tool that allows users to post messages with a maximum of 140 characters. 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.
