It’s no secret that Twitter is taking the Internet by storm, directly competiting with Facebook it seems. Most bloggers have taken a few simple steps to integrate the social networking tool into their posts.
Twitter is not only just a source of traffic, but it’s a networking tool first and foremost. While a few bad seeds may use it for spam or to shamelessly promote affiliate links, the real power of Twitter comes if you use it legitimately. Gathering a loyal number of followers and building relationships with those who choose to follow you is where the real value is.
If your blog is out of date, or you’re new to the blogging scene, take a few minutes to update it with some Twitter tools.
