Course Content:

Ø  Introduction to Twitter                                                                                         

Twitter Hours

Twitter is a very useful marketing and social networking tool. It can be time consuming (but enjoyable and even 'addictive' to some). One strategy to stay disciplined and focused is to use 'Twitter Hours' on the designated days and times, as listed below.
To participate add the hashtag symbol(#) followed by the relevant hour to your tweet. For example, on a Monday between 8 and 9pm, you might type:

Hi #NorthEastHour Sharing is caring so help yourself to 2 minute video bit.ly/wDOAC5 & smarten up your LinkedIn URL. Free to share

During the hour engage with other participating companies, organisations and individuals. Consider whether to Retweet, Follow and interact with others. If you engage regularly you will soon become part of an online networking community. If you are not available at the specified times you might want to consider using Hootsuite or TweetDeck which allow you to schedual your tweets in advance.
