TWITTER: MY FIRST THOUGHTS

Am I a Twit?

This was my conundrum – am I being a Twit to enter the world of twitter, or am I a Twit to avoid the whole area of social media?

Would it be another drain on my time, as I grapple with all the new contacts and scratch my head to create catchy messages, or will it open up a whole new valuable resource?

Being somewhat old school, I was also concerned about security – could someone steal my identity and what about legal issues? Would I fall foul of the law inadvertently?

In the end I decided if it was good enough for the BBC and far more eminent people to use, it must be something to at least try for myself.

A colleague showed me how to find the Twitter site and l logged in my details. Next I had to find five other Twitter accounts to start me off. It was as easy as that. Now I have to start the creative part and this article is my first step to try and help others who might have felt as I did. So if you would like to share your thoughts and business experiences with me we can set forth and begin our journey together.

From a new Twitter recruit.
