Twitter 101 – Twitter’s Guide for Businesses

By: David Brim July 27, 2009

Recently twitter published a guide called Twitter 101 to help businesses get started and get the most value from their popular application.  Twitter 101 includes: best practices, glossary of terms one should be familiar with, case studies and more.  If you are a business looking to get involved in Social Media, specifically twitter and don’t quite know how this guide is a phenomenal starting point.

Here is the link to view Twitter’s 101 guide.  You can view the guide online, download ppt slides, or download the full guide.

At my previous job at a top social media marketing company we ran sponsored tweet campaigns and twitter contests for Sears, Kmart, SeaWorld and more.  If you have any questions about twitter or would like to discuss growing your company’s presence on twitter feel free to contact me at David[at]Davidbrim[dot]org, or follow me on twitter: @Davidbrim

    Your market is a big one… On any given moment – about 3,000 people are actually making the trip – and another 300,000 are dreaming of making the trip. Do a trip tick well, and you are easily looking at a $69.00 retail value on each…

    I don’t get the whole Twitter fad. Who cares about the minuscule details of a random person’s life? Why do people care so much on Twitter, yet no one cares about anyone in their own neighborhoods and communities anymore.

    twitter is a great business tool but some people just want to push information not be social. How did you get companies to embrace the social aspect of twitter vs just usign it as a rss feed?

  • Bubba Moe


    You are not hep if you are not on Twitter. Talk to any social media expert and they will tell you all the right reasons to be on Twitter.
    But, before you go full speed on Twitter, understand what can you do with Twitter and what homework needs to be taken care of, in order to achieve the results.

    Twitter is the same way. It’s going to seem a little weird at first, but I promise you if you can talk your friends into joining it and you all use it for 2 weeks.
