Twitter is nothing new, it has been around for over 7 years now, if your business isn’t on twitter there is nothing wrong with that. It all simply depends on what you do. Twitter is for businesses who,

What types of businesses are these?

How can you start a twitter microblog?
- Think of a Twitter username
- Keep it short
- Stick to your industry or brand
- Target a geo location if you have trouble getting a good name (CTBrewers)
- Log onto register at Twitter.com
- Test your twitter handles (Try to avoid numbers)
- Follow influential people in your locality.
- Twitter may be global (over 300 million users), but nothing gets it done like local content- know your local area influencers
- Like in LinkedIn for Beginners, Twitter has an interest in you following others and you maybe you even getting followers so they can show you ads.
- Look at some Tweets and then try it out
