A Comprehensive Guide to Twitter

Since it’s launch in July of 2006, Twitter has quickly become one of the most popular microblogging platforms online. In fact, Twitter is one of my favorite social media tools and it’s finally being recognized as a powerful platform for communicating with your readers, building your brand, driving traffic to your blog, and communicating with industry leaders. At first glance, it’s easy to miss the power of Twitter. But start digging a little deeper and you’ll start to uncover the hidden gems.

Twitter is essentially a service that allows you to share bite-sized messages (or “tweets”) of up to 140 characters long. These short snapshots give insight into people’s lives – which is part of what makes it so popular.

Twitter allows you to send and receive updates directly on their website or via instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email, or through a wide-variety of third-party applications.

You get to be a “fly on the wall” and tune into interesting conversations from the likes of Robert Scoble, Seth Godin, Kevin Rose, CNN, Michael Arrington of TechCrunch, Darren Rowse of ProBlogger, and Gary Vaynerchuk from Wine Library TV.

In fact, Twitter is attracting a wide variety of users, including political candidates, actors, students, bloggers, housewives, and more.

So, how do you become a Twit…

Robert Scoble calls it “awesome”.

Michael Arrington of TechCrunch named Flock one of the Web 2.0 companies he couldn’t live without.

Netscape Recommends Flock as “a web browser that combines all of the advantages of Firefox with the addition of social integration.” They also labeled Firefox as “the browser for people who like to be connected, informed and in control.”

The Web is changing. As said by Bart Decrem, founder and former CEO of Flock,”Web 2.0 is a stream of events, people and connections.” Flock is a browser that allows you to easily navigate this new user environment.
