Ian Lamont is good at breaking down steps and organizing directions so that anyone can understand them. Twitter is a part of social media that seems to be here to stay. Knowing how to not only create an account, but to use it effectively is important. This book goes through the steps of creating your own account, adding pictures to your profile, and how to find others on Twitter as well. I didn't know that if an egg is showing in someone's profile picture they are usually new and haven't added anything yet. I loved the suggestions about how to search for like-minded friends and businesses. Adding pictures and posting (only a short amount of characters) is fun. If you are using Twitter to promote something you will be glad to know you can link it to your Facebook page and it will automatically post there every time you 'Tweet'. This is a lot of helpful information that can be read, and applied, in a short time.
