Tweeting Tips
Amazon-exclusive content from author Jeanne Harris

1. Don’t Direct-Message Celebrities
If you want to talk to a celebrity, tweet to their "What’s Happening" field using the @ symbol. For example, “@maryjblidge your Grammy performance with Andrea Bocelli was amazing!” You may get a response, as many celebrities interact with fans.

2. Only Use Verified Celebrity Accounts
A verified celebrity account has a little blue check mark at the top right cover of the profile page. This check mark verifies that Twitter has authenticated the account. You can see a list of all verified accounts at: @Verified.

3. Understand the # Symbol
Using the # symbol tags your tweet with a subject or topic, known as a hashtag. It organizes topics, spreads information and allows users to find others discussing the same topic. Be sure to use the same hashtag for Twitter, your blog and Facebook so others can respond to you using that same #. You can search a topic by entering it into the search field.

4. What’s Trending
Located on the right side of your homepage under the search bar, "What’s Trending" shows what people are talking about across the entire network (worldwide, U.S., a country, or a city). This is the best way to find people who share your same interests, invite them to your network, and follow them.

5. Retweeting
A retweet is when you repost a tweet. Twitter has a new retweet button allowing you to retweet the original tweet without copying and pasting it into the "What’s Happening" field and adding the RT in front of it. However, if you want to add to the tweet, you’ll need to copy and paste it. There are two ways to add to the tweet—either in front of the RT symbol or using the || or // after the person’s original tweet. Both of these methods work, the latter is more common.

6. A Reply, Not a Retweet
You can reply without retweeting. Just click reply and the field will auto fill with @name. Your reply comes into that person’s feed and allows their followers to see your response. If you want your followers to see it, even if they aren’t following that person, just add, “.” Or “!” in front of the reply.

7. The Modified Tweet
A modified tweet is when you take someone’s original tweet, change it a bit and then retweet it. This is done mainly to allow comments while staying within the 140 characters.

8. Give Credit Where Credit Is Due
Another way to retweet modified information is to use “via” at the end. For example, a tweet by Alyssa_Milano, “alive from rubble in #Haiti, 4 weeks after earthquake http://bit.ly/9jttMM (via @BreakingNews)”

Have fun, be respectful, follow basic etiquette, and find a topic or two that you’re passionate about. Happy Twittering!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically useful book abotu Tweeting! February 25, 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a very comprehensive book that gives a full directory about celebritites that tweet. Jeanne Harris did a great job at picking out tweets to highlight, and the book is easy to read. And I love the cover design - nice work! I hope there is a follow up book, or something similar for other tweeters! Maybe a political tweet directory? Or small businesses directory for tweeters?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Twitter Guide!!! February 24, 2010
Format:Paperback
I absolutely adore this book--what a little gem! I love how it's organized (in categories of the famous) and how many people are listed (it's PACKED with names). I also enjoyed reading the random tweets from celebrities sprinkled throughout the whole book. Since I am still fairly new to Twitter, the section on how to use Twitter's functionality to connect with people, in general, was a good resource. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy social networking and you like up-to-date news from your favorite celebrities.

This has got to be one of the best guides to who's who in entertainment and celebrity that I have seen in a long time. Jeanne Harris has not only come up with a great idea, but has turned that idea into a book that both fun and practical. I couldn't wait to get my copy and see how many celebs I could locate.

And here's the thing. It is totally practical. The Table of Contents is straight-forward and divided into logical groups, some of which are expected and others which you say, oh, yeah, why not? There are, of course, your favorite actors, directors and producers in either the theatre or in movies and well as Comedians, musicians and personalities who have separate listings.

Sports personalities in baseball and basketball are there, as is an interesting group that probably has a very special following: Car Racing. Then there's politics, and not just the pols themselves, but the pundits and correspondants as well. Now I know who to twit when my blood starts boiling. Speaking of which, there is also a category for Journalists. You gotta figure that's going to a hot category.

But the real surprise is the Celebrity Chefs/Foodies. I mean WolfgangPuck (@WolfganBuzz) and Rachel Ray (@RacaelRayShow) sure, but Pim Te (@chezpim, The Foodie Handbook) and the king of Bizarre Foods, Andrew Zimmern (@andrewzimmern)? It shows the author's attention to detail to even have thought of these guys.

It's a great guide just to lay back and thumb through, but if you want to find a specific person, there is even a comprehensive index you can use to find your favorite celeb instantly. The only downside to this book is that my name and books
