According to Wikipedia Twitter is a free social networking and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author’s profile page and delivered to the author’s subscribers who are known as followers. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Ever since late 2009, users can follow lists of authors instead of following individual authors. All users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. While the service itself costs nothing to use, accessing it through SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

How does twitter working according to HowStuffWorks

Many social networking Web siteshave lots of bells and whistles. Sites like MySpace and Facebook let users build profiles, upload pictures, incorporate multimedia, keep a blogand integrate useful or bizarre programs into homepages. But one Web company with a very simple service is rapidly becoming one of the most talked-about social networking service providers: Twitter.

So what does Twitter do? When you sign up with Twitter, you can use the service to post and receive messages to a network of contacts. Instead of sending a dozen e-mails or text messages, you send one message to your Twitter account, and the service distributes it to all your friends. Members use Twitter to organize impromptu gatherings, carry on a group conversation or just send a quick update to let people know what’s going on.  Continue reading

Below is a YouTube video that explains Twitter is in plain English.

I am always searching the internet on new ways to market my business as well as pass on knowledge onto others, because I strongly believe in “WE are GREATER than i“.

I truly believe the reason I find so many golden nuggets on the internet is because I share with others.  The golden nugget that I would like share with you today is a video (see below) I came across on Vimeo entitled ‘David Fagan – CEO of Guerrilla Marketing‘.

In the following video David Fagan will share a few ingredients from his recipe for success.  Some of the ingredients he will share with you are the Law of Multiplication, Strategic Partnerships, Guerrilla Marketing, The Wedding Principal and more.  Although this video is geared towards authors, please keep in mind that marketing is marketing and the information in this video can be tailored to fit anyone’s marketing needs.

I hope you enjoyed and learned something from this video.  If you did, then please pass the knowledge onto someone else.
