New Section For Twitter Beginners – Twitter 101

On Twitter I am often asked by followers for information that can be passed on to new folk they have introduced to the network. Twitter can be intimidating the first time you sign up and unless you’re fairly proactive the benefits of the platform can easily be lost.

I’ve written many tutorials, guides and ‘how to’ articles on this blog, and felt it made sense to pool these entries into one convenient resource: Twitter 101.

Twitter 101 breaks down all the help articles within Twittercism into clearly-labelled sub-sections.You can access my guides on Getting Started, Twitter Etiquette, Finding Followers and  Statistics & Data, as well as tutorials on #followfriday and TweetDeck, tips on designing your profile background and instruction on how to fight off spammers and trolls.

You can find the link to this section at the top of the screen. The page will be updated continuously as new material is published.

If you have introduced friends to Twitter and they’re not ‘getting it’, please forward them towards my Twitter 101 page. The full URL is:

Thank you! :)
