What Can You Do With Twitter?


What do you do with Twitter?

Just in case you want one more thing to think about! I took this information from a newsletter from SitePro.Com

I love the book idea! It sounds like a lot of fun! I think I may start a book today.

1) Community Help Desk - I've already used Twitter several

times to investigate an issue I've been having with my

computer, or a problem one of my clients has come across. Just

yesterday I was able to pinpoint the source of a domain redirect

issue because my followers in other countries could reach the

site even though I was being redirected.



2) Write a Collaborative Book - you and a bunch of your favorite

Tweeps could write a novel, one sentence (tweet) at a time. The

results could range from hilarious to Shakespearean. I thought

of this while reading about the popularity of Japanese novels

composed via mobile text messages, but it turns out that some

attempts have been made at this already e.g. 140 Novel

and Good Captain. You could do a similar thing with song lyrics.



3) Live Webinars/Tutorials - you could create a new Twitter

account with protected updates and ask invitation-only

participants to follow you. Then you could hold a *closed*

webinar at a pre-arranged time using Twitter for delivery

instead of expensive webinar solutions. Twitter allows you to

live chat, post links, photos, videos, audio files and text so

there is no need for any plug-ins. You could even use a Twitter

buffer like Twuffer to space out the

content of the webinar via tweets over a specific timeframe.



4) Free Market Research - Who needs to pay expensive market

research companies to learn stuff about your latest product?

Just send a link, a free sample or a short survey to your

followers and watch the feedback flow in.



5) Online Reputation Management - Twitter is ideal for tracking

what people are saying about you, your company or your product.

You can use Twitter Search to enter keywords or hash tags. Or you can use purpose-built widgets such as TweetBeep which work just like Google Alerts and send you regular emails containing any discussions

involving your chosen Twitter accounts or hash tags. These work

well for competitor tracking too.



6) Laugh a Day / Therapy - I'm consistently amazed how many

long-term Twitter users fail to use the favorites option to

bookmark tweets that they like. Whenever I read a tweet that

makes me laugh out loud, I favorite it immediately. Then,

whenever I am feeling a bit flat, stressed or sense a bad mood

coming on, I turn to my favorites list knowing I will be

giggling in no time. You can also rely on your followers to

sense when you're down and cheer you up.



7) Competitions - Companies like Zappos and Hand Bag Heaven

have been holding competitions on Twitter for a while now. You

basically elicit a response from your followers in exchange for

the chance to win something. You could ask a question about one

of your products or ask followers to find something on your site

to win a gift certificate. But with a bit of ingenuity, you can

be even more inventive.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
