7 Ways to Be Worth Following on Twitter

1. Be Interesting (Don’t just tweet about what you had for lunch!)

2. Be Informative (Share links and other resources.)

3. Be Interactive (Spend some time on the site. Don’t just tweet and run!)

4. Be Promotional (Don’t be afraid to share the good work you’ve done.)

5. Be Personal (Respond to others and answer questions.)

6. Be Considerate (There is such thing as tweeting too much and flooding other’s Timelines. Oh, and don’t type in ALL CAPS. It’s considered YELLING!)

7. Find a Balance (Balance all of the above, and you will be a good, respectable Tweeter that others will want to follow.)
Participate in a chat. A chat is a public conversation on Twitter around a specific topic using #.
You can search #hashtags by interest

1. You find a #hashtag associated with the topic you are interest in.
2. Follow the chat. Things to remember:
some move quickly so you may use a service like Twubs.com / oneQube / Hootsuite / TweetDeck / Twitterfall. This will help organize the chat.
you can comment, retweet someone, direct message someone, and/or favorite a tweet. Lets try doing one of each today.
each chat has a moderator that will post questions ex: Q1 and when you respond you will post A1 and then your response.
You MUST add the #hashtag to stay with the chat. #CADETPDCHAT
