I do not know about you, however I was so confused about Twitter, in fact, I got anxious when I thought about tweeting. To say I was confused is an understatement! I actually hyperventilated at the mere thought of posting.
These tips are for the Newbie, the person who is so confused or has said “I do not see the point”. If I had been armed with a few of these tips from the get go I may not have had so many anxious moments. This is what prompted me to Put on my Tiara (thinking cap) and share a few tips with you. Newbies should be spoon fed and not fed a full six course meal at the beginning. Therefore, I will be sharing this in easily digestible courses.
I want you to take a deep breath and just ease into it, you will be a pro in no time at all.
