Twitter has been around for many years now, but so many of us do not see the value of it, understand how it works, or even know where to start!
Over the past few years I have managed to build a following of over 10,000 people and have made some great contacts that help ‘spread the word’ of my brand and life values.
For me this is simple: The Truth of The Bible and the Christian message.

Multiple businesses and Ministries alike use Twitter as a key part of their marketing or outreach. Maybe it is time you jumped on board?
Where to start?
Here are some Twitter 101 basics to insert yourself into the global conversation, make yourself more known ‘out there’, and start to establish a following on Twitter.
The key to Twitter is following people and being followed. You are engaging and connecting, not just advertising! Blasting all your stuff out there will not generate followers.Where do you find people to follow and connect with in your niche?A Good tool is manageflitter.com. Just follow these simple steps:
Retweets are a quick way of connecting with others and getting known as a connector. Much more can be said about using retweets (it is an art) but become familiar first.
A good freebie social network platform is hootsuite.com. Connect up your twitter account and you can schedule tweets, retweet, and see your twitter action easily from one screen. Different streams can be viewed at the same time (e.g. Home, tweets, retweets, mentions.)
There are no quick fixes to building relationships. Set yourself a daily routine to craft tweets, follow people, retweet, and thank people for following you. It takes time but you have to treat it seriously to build up a following, and take daily care of your new found twitter friends.
These are 6 basics to get you going, but there is much more to sharpening your networks and really utilizing the power of twitter to enhance your ministry or business.
