I am teaching a class on twitter for Iowa Valley Continuing Education at Ellsworth College. I'm green - and think we print enough paper in our lives. I'm using this forum to share notes about the things we will be doing!

Twitter tips:

Give give give – information, praise, referrals
Be authentic – don't lie, don't make up things, be who you are
thank people for retweeting and for great comments
Tweetdeck – a great way to organize your twitter
Twellow – yellow pages of twitter
tweetstats – graph your stats

Links we will look at tonight and participate in
