Today my goal was to learn the more interactive, buzz-building elements of Twitter. Since I hope to use Twitter to communicate on behalf of Circuit Rider magazine, I started following a bunch of folks with "UMC" or "Rev" in their username, to try to make those connections. I had a #circuitrider post up, so that hopefully UM users will notice the connection and follow me back.
I was trying to use Twitter to generate ideas for a survey I was drafting for an upcoming issue, and while I got a few responses on Facebook (via my tweeted status update), not a peep on Twitter. I guess I still have too few followers for that to work, given that only a small percentage of people would respond to any question.
I am now following 129 people.
44 people are following me.
I learned to:
Block a follower (his username was just a string of profanity--I don't need that!)
What advice for maximizing Twitter do you have?
