Get started by choosing a user name. Try to use something easy to remember. This will be part of your URL. Next create your profile page. By using your name and your own picture, people will see you as a real person they are following, who is giving them great advice, ideas and information, someone they can trust and respect. This will help build your relationships. Your bio will have to be 3-4 short basic facts about yourself, or business. If someone wants to know more about you, they will have to visit your website.

If using Twitter for marketing, don’t keep your tweets confidential. You want as many people as possible to see them.
To build a following you have to first start following others. Start by following family, friends and other contacts. Next go to search.Twitter.com and search for others that are interested in the same topics as you. Read their bio and tweets. Follow them if they look like an expert on their topic. See who they are following, and who’s following them. Hang out with them.
When you follow someone not only the person you are following will see but everyone else following them will see.
It is very important that you contribute to the conversation frequently. Make sure your tweets are interesting and provide valuable information. Everyone included in the conversation will see.
