As part of the social media webinar assignment, our homework was to log in Twitter and get our feet wet. I was ready to dive in.
First, here's a quick explanation from CommonCraft:
I started slowly by searching for and following real estate agents (including Missy Caulk from Ann Arbor and Teresa Boardman from St. Paul), real estate techies and local folks.
Gradually I started participating by "tweeting" (posting) some of my daily activities and people started following me (by the way, my Twitter ID is @MichiganMoves).
The more time I spent on Twitter, the more sucked in and addicted I became. I found an application for my Blackberry (Twitterberry) as well as other websites to post status updates to multiple networking websites (Ping.fm).
