Follow Friday has been a Twitter tradition for many years, but lately has been
far less prevalent on the twittersphere. Once a great hashtag trending highly
on the waves of social networking, it's become more of an irritation to me
Recently I gained a new follower on Twitter so I checked it out (which I try to do for all new followers). I realised they were a marketing company boasting social media management for other companies...
I first met Mita briefly at a Tweetup a while ago, then more recently at the Big
Free Twitter workshop, and then again at our first Leamington Twitter School.
It was at Twitter School that I got to know Mita better.
Blogging or blogger are terms you will no doubt have heard. A blog is simply a piece of writing posted online. Very much like an article in a newspaper or magazine, blogs can be factual, fictional, interesting, informative or educational; the outcome of this is entirely up to you.
There's tonnes of blogs and tips, tricks and advice, experts and gurus on Twitter and in the wider universe. There's so much information about Twitter that it's very difficult to choose which direction you'll go in.

A common and re-occurring fault in social media, and certainly twitter, is giving the tweeting or Facebook page to someone who looks after that sort of stuff. Twitter School from WTU aims to change this.
Why your Avatar is so important.
Firstly let's lose the tech jargon, an avatar is an online presence, a picture of you online. A profile picture if you like. On twitter, certainly if you're a business, it's very important to get the avatar right.
2011 was a great year for Twitter, it beat Facebook to many milestones. When you consider that Facebook is 800million users strong compared to only 300million on Twitter that's quite an achievement. But why is its popularity growing so fast and why is it, in many minds, better than the social media Goliath that is Facebook?
