At the Brighton Digital Festival talk on online reputation for artists I did the other evening, I was asked to post some beginners’ guides to Twitter (thanks to Helen Wilshaw for the reminder).
Naturally there is a pretty good one in Me and My Web Shadow, but there’s no shortage of free good advice out there online…
Here are a few I like the look of:
- The Telegraph’s Shane Richmond’s step-by-step guide to getting started is great.
- As is is The Atlantic’s The Bare Bones Guide to Twitter
- And the Huffington Post has one too…
- * * Update * * This is a really nice explanation for beginners Mom, This is How Twitter Works – as the author says up front, it’s actually for anyone, not just Mums…
And, showing far Twitter use has spread, the DeBrett’s social networking etiquette guide has a nice way of putting things (via Harry Wallop in The Telegraph:
Do not overload the Facebook home page feed with countless status updates. Be sure that your posts are written to enlighten others, and not used as an exercise in vanity.
