If you’re new to Twitter or haven’t joined yet because you’re not quite sure what to make of it, this is for you! One of my favorite tweeple, Irene Koehler, is hosting a FREE webinar for beginning tweeters on Thursday, March 26 at 11 a.m. pacific — that’s 2 p.m. eastern.

Irene will address basic topics, including:

  • How to correctly retweet
  • How to set up your Twitter profile page

  • Understanding all those funny terms and symbols
  • Twitter etiquette

  1. Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for sharing the information about the Twitter webinar, or shall we say…Twebinar?

    It can be a powerful tool for connecting with others for business purposes, opportunities for collaborations, finding those with similar interests, etc.

    I look forward to meeting your blog readers online next week.

    Irene

      LOL – I almost said ‘twebinar’ but didn’t want to scare the beginners 🙂 Of course, maybe I did that anyway with Tweeple. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the event!

  2. Some of us just aren’t Twitter people. A local colleague at a professional event yesterday did make the “jumping the shark” reference with respect to Twitter, and he used it the most of anyone there. His utilization is almost entirely business-related (credit union).

      Hah! I had to look that one up. For anyone that doesn’t know the “jump the shark” reference (apparently from Happy Days), here’s a link that explains it: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-new-startup-dream-jumping-the-shark-2009-3

      Why does he think it has hit its peak?

      Whether it has or not, Twitter definitely isn’t for everyone (my mom can’t understand why anyone would want a constant stream of information) or even for every business. It’s certainly more beneficial for some people/businesses (like PR, advertising, social media) than for others (plumbers come to mind, though I could be missing the opportunity here).

      At any rate, I don’t think Twitter has jumped the shark just yet — I think it’s still a unique forum that allows the flow of information and ideas between people who otherwise couldn’t/wouldn’t get in touch.

  3. I don’t think he was thinking about Twitter as an application, but rather the utilization of social networking by his generation (early-X’er). History shows that at some point, each generation says “enough” with respect to trying to keep up with technology and cultural tastes.

    I can see the “old fashioned” probably seeing Twitter as one step too far. It is definitely not for those who are less active with the Internet, who may change an FB profile once or twice a week. Twittering is an hourly endeavor for many, especially for those seeing to draw audience and input.

    Naturally, the next generation will see Twitter as only the beginning. There will be that point, and I have no idea when it will take place, that even they (on average) will decide to simply stick with what they know at that time.

      Interesting! I guess you could say that’s the source of the generation gap — when one group is content to “stick with what they know” and the other moves forward. Thanks for the insight.
