Who to Follow?

13 Jun

Last week I wrote about how business owners can benefit from using a personal Twitter account as an information portal. Today’s post focuses on how to find people to follow.

Start by visiting the Who To Follow link and type favorite publications, current events of interest, celebrities or industry leaders into the search function. Here’s a snapshot of some of the returns for my search for New York Times. Simply click “follow” on those you find interesting and you’ll get their updates in your account feed.

Once you’ve started to follow a few accounts, Twitter will make recommendations based who you are currently following and your location. These can be found under “Suggestions.” “Interests” shows top Tweeters in specific categories. The “Find Friends” searches your email and other social media accounts for people you already know who are on Twitter.

At first it might seem odd to follow people you don’t know on Twitter, but that is the nature of Twitter. It is quite a compliment to be followed, especially by someone you don’t know. So don’t be shy and follow away!

I can be found on Twitter as@coachgirl20.
