Follow and Be Followed

One of today's social media and cyber-networking most powerful tool is Twitter. 

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. (from Wikipedia).

It's a useful service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

But with millions of Tweeters out there, how do you stand out?  

The answer - Personalize your Twitter Page with Custom Backgrounds. If you're tweeting about your business, it's an effective way to brand your company and promote your service and products.

I've been privileged to design and PlainJaneandCo's Twitter Pages.  You can get your own custom twitter backgrounds here.

Remember though, that Twitter is a community.  Be mindful and respectful at all times by posting only relevant and informative tweets.  Follow the web adage, 'Thou shalt never spam.'

You're always welcome to follow me on Twitter.
