Many people still don’t “get” Twitter – especially from a professional perspective – or are uncertain whether there is any value in using it. Many others have set up an account but feel overwhelmed and/or unsure about how to maximize the potential benefits. Still others think they’re using it properly but really don’t know if they are. Courtney Hunt will help these Tweeters and more by sharing 21 best practice suggestions for getting the most out of the Twitter experience, including:

  • Leveraging Twitter for career management, business development, job search, etc.
  • Account/profile set up
  • Determining who to follow (and unfollow)
  • Building Twitter engagement into your daily routine
  • Using the right language and other conventions
  • Striking appropriate balances between:
    • quantity and quality,
    • personal and professional,
    • private and public
  • Using hashtags appropriately

At the end of the session everyone will be better able to tweet without looking like a twit!
