Twitter is an online social media outlet that allows you to communicate with people that follow you in 140 characters or less. Twitter has more or less taken the Internet by storm. New users are are signing up by the thousands to use twitter every single day.

It has become a major source for information in a very short time. You can easily log on to twitter and get the scoop about almost anything going on in the world. Someone out there is twittering about it.

Most people do not understand twitter when they first began, and do not find the value in it. But, once you start to understand the power of twitter it can get very addictive fast.

In this article I want to talk a little bit about how you can get started with twitter. The first thing you want to do is sign up for a twitter account. It is very easy to sign up for account all you have to do is go to their website and follow the setup instructions. Before you know it you will have an account and be up and rocking.

Next, I would go and get an application called TweetDeck. TweetDeck is an awesome desktop application that will allow you to manage your twitter account. Once you start following many people it is hard to follow the stream online. So, if you can get an application like TweetDeck you can easily manage thousands upon thousands of followers.

Now, you need to go out and start getting followers. Twitter has a very helpful search tool you can use to simply search for conversations you would like to join. Then, you can follow the people that are talking about the things you want to talk about and join the conversation.

It is as easy as that. It is kind of like being in a crowded room and just walking up and shaking someone's hand. But, in this instance you are behind a computer and really do not have to do it in person. So, it takes all of the nervousness out of introducing yourself.

This application is a great way to build relationships. If you're starting a business, relationships are key. Henry Ford once said "a business that makes only money is a poor business." And I believe that to be true. So, if you are out to use twitter just to make money you are going to be severely disappointed with your results.

But, if you are going to use twitter to build relationships, you'll be surprised how the money actually follows. So, twitter is a fantastic way to communicate with many people at a time, on a large scale. It is a fantastic way to build relationships, drive traffic to your website and make money. That is if you use it correctly.

Twitter is a valuable resource for any business. That is why you see all the major companies jumping on the bandwagon. So, if it is good enough for multimillion dollar companies, is twitter good enough for your business? I would say so.
