I had been on Twitter for several months, but could never really get a handle on what the benefits were, how to "talk the Twitter language" and how to manage all the tweets I was getting.
Yes, the book starts with the basics of signing on (well, it IS a "Dummies" book), but even some of the basics were things I needed to know. The authors are also very upfront that things are constantly changing; but this being Twitter, they'll also provide updates via @dummies.
The book is well organized and answered all my questions so that I'm not afraid to go online (or on-mobile!) and dive in. In fact, the authors encourage you to jump into conversations and not be shy.
Lots of good tips, lots of things to do on Twitter.
If you've been using Twitter for a while and feel you know you way around, this book isn't for you. It's for the rest of us--those of us who may have put our toes in but needed to be up to submerge ourselves (bad metaphor?), or for those who may have been afraid of this new social medium. Happy tweets!
I've read a few Twitter books and found them all helpful. Yet when I started reading "Twitter for Dummies" I knew it was one of the smartest purchasing decisions I've made this year! To be mild, this book is comprehensive!
I was halfway through reading when I got hungry and headed off to a Thai restaurant for dinner. I was surprised to hear a group of young people discussing Twitter at the table besides ours. There eyes sort of lit up when they talked about it, they were in love!
While reading later at home I started to write down all the recommended websites that enhance the Twitter experience. I have a full page of great sites to explore.
If you use your cellphone a lot there are ways to set up "quiet time" so you are not completely overwhelmed by tweet notifications. This could get interesting if you are following thousands of people.
Some unexpected information was about a site called [...] There I found an HDTV on a really good sale. This book also discusses and explains google alerts. Then there are places to get cool background pictures.
One of the main messages in this book is how you can use tweeting for business purposes. Cautions and warnings are given emphasis is on making friends and solving customer problems on Twitter. There is also a quick way to invite all your email friends to start participating in all the Twitter fun.
This book introduced me to @secrettweet which is a site where you can post your deepest darkest secret anonymously. It is a bit like reading those intriguing PostSecret books. Some of the revelations may be a bit shocking.
By the end of reading this book, which took me three days, you will have a much deeper understanding of how to tweet following Twitter etiquette. The authors are very wise and they want you to stay safe. With this book you will make wise decisions and learn how to navigate around the site like a pro. The only other books I'd recommend you read besides this one is Ready...Set...Tweet! A Speedy Guide to Twitter: Get ready...get set up...and start Tweeting in no time. (Volume 1).
I tweet about new books I'm reading and other fun stuff.
It might be best to read the introductory book before moving to this one to get the best use out of Twitter.
