1. Build an account and immediate start using Twitter Search to listen for your name, your competitor's names, words that relate to your space. (Listening always comes first.)
2. Add a picture. ( Shel reminds us of this.) We want to see you.
3. Talk to people about THEIR interests, too. I know this doesn't sell more widgets, but it shows us you are human.
4. Point out interesting things in your space, not just about you.
5. Share links to neat things in your community. ( wholefoods does this well).
6. Don't get stuck in the apology loop. Be helpful instead. ( jetblue gives travel tips.)
7. Be wary of always pimping your stuff. Your fans will love it. Others will tune out.
8. Promote your employees outside-of-work stories. ( TheHomeDepot does it well.)
9. Throw in a few humans, like RichardAtDELL, LionelAtDELL, etc.
10. Talk about non-business,

We really can’t deny the fact that businesses are testing out Twitter as part of their steps into the social media landscape. Share links to neat things in your community. Be wary of always pimping your stuff. Your fans will love it. Others will tune out. Have more than one twitterer at the company. People can quit. People take vacations. It’s nice to have a variety. Tweet about other people’s stuff. Again, doesn’t directly impact your business, but makes us feel like you’re not “that guy.”

I like Twitter but I also think it can become overwhelming and people will start to tune out of it. I have a few accounts that I basically have going on autopilot because I don't have the time to deal with them. They are very popular because I basically stream news that people are interested in through the accounts. I've tried revtwt and a few others with not much success. I will say that it is a great way to drive traffic to your blog by sending out a tweet every time you post a new story on your blog.

If you want to convert your Twitter followers to potential customers need to run in a regular process of marketing, providing valuable information and insights, and were created as someone and trust. Only then can obsess followers sales funnel.

You can synchronize your blog account with Twitter and every time you post something new in your blog, your followers could know.

Twitter is also useful for building up your network. This is very useful for consultants.

If you are into linkedin, you can use twitter to warm up your contact before sending a networking invite.

Twitter’s learning curve is so low, it makes the process of starting up much easier and saves ample amounts of time that can be used elsewhere. As with any marketing tactic, you must first identify your target demographic, and subsequently cater to the needs of it. After a target audience is determined, Twitter’s user-friendly interface allows you to ‘follow’ the relevant audience. For example, if your company offers services in the fashion industry, consider following fashion magazines, icons, companies, amateurs, and so forth – basically, you want to follow those industry influencers that you can forge relationships with and ultimately expand your Twitter presence. A simple search will open the doors for your marketing campaign on Twitter.

In order to succeed with Twitter, you need to build your following and that is not so easy. The following needs to be a targeted audience of what you're trying to promote. It doesn't matter the niche, you can find everyone on Twitter.
