TwitterFriends - a fantastic tool to see just how you're doing on Twitter

First of all let me start off by saying I am NOT an expert on Twitter by any means!  But like you, I'm hearing so much chatter over and about Twitter these days.  The comments I hear range from I just don't get it to I set up a twitter account but now what... to the I've sold XX number of homes using Twitter.

There doesn't seem to be a shortage of people out there tagging themselves as "experts" these days.  They boost about their successes and knowledge on Twitter.  And that's great.   You'll find them feverishly tweeting through meetings, family gatherings even classes about TwitterI really hope that what they say IS true.  It's really important because twitter is such a misunderstood business tool.

But I needed a way to find out how can I substantiate those claims?  As someone that has started learning about how to use twitter in my business as a Realtor® I would like to learn more ~ but from where and from whom?  How can I find out if I'm measuring up?  How do I compare to others that do have more experience than I do on Twitter?

Well I found a fantastic site called Twitter-Friends.com.  It's a tool that I can use to monitor how I'm doing on twitter, learn where I need to improve, and even check on those so called "experts" before I start to listen to their teachings...  Jason Annas @jasonannas does a fantastic job of explaining more about what really matters on Twitter in his blog Steps to Successful Twitter users.

So I hope that you'll find this site useful as you analyze your habits, improve, and become better on twitter. 

And I'd love to connect just follow us @RaleighOnline.

Some people are all atwitter alright.  But surely there must be a better way to tweet one's own horn.

Jim, there is a buzz around it alright.  But there is also some solid use to it as well.  We'll see - as it becomes more mainstream I think people will find more useful ways to use it other than blowing one's own horn...

Lee & Pamela - I still haven't mastered the art of the tweet.  I am not conversing on twitter, just mainly posting information.  Still need some more training on how to utilize it to converse with others.

I, too, am still trying to figure out Twitter and really don't converse with others through Twitter.  Thanks for the info about Twitter-Friends. Seems like we should be thanking people for following us. I've got to work on that. BTW I am now following you on Twitter!

HI, thanks for the info. So much to learn. I've just been working on my Facebook fan page this week but will head over to check out twitter friends. It seems here in my community there aren't that many people tweeting so everyone is following everyone else, including numerous REALTORS. I just tweet the sales stats and then other realtors retweet it. Hmm, who's doing all the work here lol???
