Twitter - Keep on Tweeting

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Boomerang Social

I hope that you have a little understanding into Twitter.  Twitter can also be used by employers to recruit, and by people looking for jobs.  If you are looking for work, find openings by following people or companies you would like to work for.   Employers post Tweets for highly qualified people, and HR department heads look through Twitter to see if there are any potential candidates for their positions.

A refresher: 

*Tweet - an incoming or outgoing message.

*Following - Anyone (person or company) that you are interested in and clicked follow on their home page.

*Followers - Anyone that has clicked follow on your home page and is following you.

*Direct Message - Message that are private.  They don't appear on your page or in searches.  Users can send or receive direct messages on anyone they are following or any of their followers.

*Apps - There are many apps (applications) that are out on the web for Twitter.  Just google Twitter Apps and take a look to see if any would be helpful to you.  They are generally easy to install and set up.  If you want an opinion of any particular app, ask about it on a Tweet!

Hash Tag (#) - These are used to categorize topics on Twitter.  Click on one when you see it and you will see a list of Tweets on the subject that hash tag is attached to.

Follow me on Twitter and view all the different topics:  Twitter

Colleen,

It's so hard for me to remember to tweet on Twitter with all these other social media sites!

Michele, There are apps that would help with that.  If you are somewhat tech savy, one is TweetDeck. You can literally have your Twitter, LinkedIn and FB up all at the same time and Tweet, comment and all from one page on your computer.  It doesn't take much to install or set up.

There is also Seesmic if you have a Blackberry or Iphone.  It downloads to your phone quickly and opens up directly to your Twitter.

There are tons of apps that make it simplier to do, but it does take a little time to figure out what works best for you and set it up.

 

Vickie, I realize more and more each day what Twitter and other sites can actually do.  The more you use them, the more you learn about them.  It sometimes seems endless.

 

If I can help either of you with any questions about Twitter or any of the sites, please just let me know!  You can always email me direct by clicking the EMAILME link below my photo.  I'm here to help when I can!

Wishing you both a Great 4th of July weekend, and thanks for commenting!

Tweetdeck is great. Really eases the use. Once again, another great use of smart phones.

I've read that Twitter is overtaking LinkedIn as the #1 social network for sales people. Get account and whatever you do, do not let your Twitter feed get boring or repetitive. Make your tweets relevant, timely, entertaining and on topic.
