5. Who Tweets you?
This article by Dave Larson was published by Tweetsmarter and is a real mine of useful information.Â Dave lists and reviews some of the Twitter Search Engines that you can use to monitor or locate Tweets that you thought might have been lost.Â I find Backtweets particularly useful in finding out who has RT’d or mentioned one of my posts without adding my Twitter name.
6. Keep your Tweets sweet
7. Twitter Tools
There are so many Twitter Tools out there that it’s difficult to pick out the best but I think that this article from @ruhanirabin does a pretty good job.
8. Make your Retweet count
Whatever your motive for RT’ing, and I hope all of yours are pure, it would be nice to know that the person you are Tweeting actually knows about it. Â Until I read this article from @raybeckerman posted on Ray’s 2.0 I wasn’t aware that this is often not the case.Â Thanks Ray, you can expect my RT soon!
