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

Some people you will want to follow:

    Thanks so much for having me on your list of "who to follow" – it makes me feel like the things I say really touch you. That's the highest praise of all.

    Thanks for your friendship and following Deb – it's the best!

    You give the best value in your blog posts. I always walk away learning something. Then there's the great personal touch you provide. You are my kind of friend!
