How to... use Twitter

You may have noticed a block on the right hand side of the main website titled 'Twitter Updates'. For those of you that don't know, Twitter is a micro-blogging tool. It gives you 140 characters to tell people what you are doing, what you're looking at, how you're feeling, what you're thinking about. It's a quick and easy way to update your site and keep people informed without having to write whole blog posts.

Follow and be Followed
Once you have set up your account with Twitter you can find and follow people - your friends and family, companies (for example Firebox are on Twitter) or people you're interested in. You can even send direct messages.

What are the Benefits?
These are the benefits according to me...feel free to Tweet or blog others.
  • It's easy to do
  • It eases you into blogging and the mentality behind it
  • You're likely to find some interesting people, websites and blogs
  • It's fun (really, I enjoy tweeting!)
  • It's a great way to promote new services, products and events
  • You can add a feed to your site so it's always getting updated

Step 1 - Sign Up
First of all you need to set up a Twitter Account so go to and click 'Join the Conversation'. Simply fill in your details and off to go!

Step 2 - Your first Tweet
Now the pressure is on - what will be your first tweet? Tell people why you have started, tell them what you are thinking RIGHT NOW, tell them what you had for dinner. The more interesting the better. Maybe you want a theme for your tweets? I have found a guy that tweets everything he has to eat, for Picseli it's all about the company and what we are up to.

Step 3 - Find some Friends
It can take time to get a huge following on Twitter, but so that people can find you - you need to find people. So look up your friends or send them an email, go to and search for people tweeting similar things to you then follow them.

Step 4 - Keep it up
So that people who find you want to follow, you need to make sure you keep tweeting! If you have decided on a theme - stick to it. Why not provide links to useful blog posts you've found? If you have decided to set up a feed on your website there is nothing worse than it showing your last tweet was months ago!

As a first step why not follow Picseli?
