Ok so one day down and already we are seeing some dramatic action on our Twitter account! Happy Days!
What we’ve done so far…
A fellow Twitterer (@andrew_thomson) very kindly passed on a nice wee resource for Internet Marketing Gurus which we have used for our first task, follow Smores, given that there are like a couple hundred Internet Marketing Gurus out there we just randomly selected 20 different gurus to follow.
A lot actually! Two minutes into the Smore bonanza we already had a boost in our follower numbers! Without really doing anything! Here I was, under the impression that to get followers you had to say cool stuff, be Stephen Fry or speak techie talk, apparently not all you got to do is follow the cool kids.
One thing we have noticed, however, is that since following the marketing gurus we have been inundated with Twitter updates and don’t really get the opportunity to catch every Twit coming through- in fact we are finding it quite stressful! In an attempt to try and manage the numbers we have downloaded a nifty wee gadget called a TweetDeck, a jazzy little application that lets you know of every Tweet as they are Tweeted (published?).*
It really is a must for anyone wanting to take this Twitter malark seriously.
Anyway, so just over 24 hours into our experiment and time for a quick update.

All going swimmingly so far with tip #1 being incredibly useful… lets see how the weekend goes.
Keep tuned Twitters.
*Note to self must look into correct Twitter language and phrases!
