If it seems the world is getting smaller, it’s because communities are being created at the speed of Twitter! If you are not yet part of the ongoing online conversation that is Twitter, I highly recommend learning to play there! It’s like a big party where everyone is talking at once and you can hear only small, bite-sized bits of conversation snippets. They are visual bites, of course. 140 characters to be exact. But it’s amazing that we can actually create and grow relationships and communities this way! It’s a whole new world. In case you’re new to Twitter, here are a few great resources from the pros who have been using Twitter successfully. Twitter has its own language, rules of engagement, and culture (which I’m learning by making all sorts of mistakes, I might add) so jump in and start playing!
