A recent blog post at ProBlogger.com offered new Twitter users a Top 10 list of the most useful and informative people to follow. Chosen for their ability to show people what Twitter and social media is all about, if contained some of the medium’s heavy hitters. So who would make a list of 10 public relations people to follow on Twitter?
Twitter is without a doubt one of the more popular social media tools or applications. For making new friends on a personal level, to networking and meeting new business contacts on a professional level. But it can also be a lot of fun, with different users finding different ways to entertain people. Tweetbomb is just the latest and possibly one of the best – so what’s it all about?
One of social media’s defining messages is that it’s all about the sharing – helping each other become better at what we do by being selfless and looking out for each other.
