Twitter for Business blog post
Chris Brogan wrote a very concise and useful post on how to use Twitter for business. In it, you will find ideas on creating an account, topics to consider for the medium, a check on Twittetiquette, and an assessment of both the minuses and the pluses of having a Twitter presence.
The conversation at Chris’ blog got into a lot of different tactics, with many useful comments. As for business value on the strategic side, and these are some of tips :
