How Do I Get Listed On Twitter?

I received a question from a business owner who asked me "how do I get listed on Twitter?" I told her that I would put the answer on my blog, since the answer would help many others as well. When you look at the question, what it really is asking is this: "how do I get others [...]

The Value Of A Tweet

There is value in a tweet. For example Mashable wrote the following: "The car manufacturer is rewarding those who purchase a new Toyota by January 3 with a $500 debit card for tweeting about it."

There is a new attack going around on Twitter.

Protecting What You Build

I met a business woman who got a call from a lawyer. The lawyer told her that she had to pull down her web site and change her business name.  She had been using her business name for quite some while. I believe someone else saw her name and realized that they could take it from [...]
