Using this manual, you’ll learn the lingo, find your way around the Twitter dashboard, and start building relationships with your worldwide audience. You’ll also discover many tips and tricks to engage your audience and build a solid marketing platform in minutes a day. Finally, you’ll learn how to write great tweets, use hashtags, link shorteners, Twitter tools, schedule your tweets, use tweet templates, and continue building relationships with your worldwide audience.

“For a tutorial, Snyder’s content is surprisingly readable and interesting for the Twitter newbie. Explanations are clear and concise – perhaps the result of raising five children. Screen shots with arrows pointing to a relevant box make navigation a breeze. I found myself looking forward to trying the next “Your turn!” at the end of each chapter, as I invariably felt successful after meeting each new challenge.

This book isn’t only for new tweeters, though. Those who are familiar with Twitter will gain from reviewing the Dos and Don’ts of tweets, what goes into a good tweet, and general rules of following and sharing. It’s easy to get into lazy habits, so fine-tuningTwitter activity will serve to enhance the reader’s return for time invested. Moving on in the book, information takes the experienced tweeter to more in-depth understanding of this social media tool. Many will want to leave the later chapters until they’ve had time to get used to the site. Others, though, will appreciate taking their tweeting to a new level.”

“I thought I knew all there was to know about Twitter! But Ruth proves that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

This resource is set out in an organized fashion that you can refer back to again and again. It’s loaded with tons of useful links to dive deeper into specific areas without feeling overwhelmed.

It’s an excellent resource that makes it motivating to “play” on Twitter. Highly recommended!”

Twitter has been a big mystery to me. I’ve known that I need to use it, and I figured out the basics, but what the heck is it good for? This book helped answer that question, as well as giving the basics of how to set up and get started. Very useful for all writers who want to expand their social media presence. I know the information will be valuable for me as I work to promote my own books.
