    use twitter to tweet about your daily life... tweet interesting finds... then slowly get pple to follow you... then use sites like twitterfeed.com to help you drive your RSS feeds to twitter.

    A good resource is to use Google Reader to share watever blog posts you have inside your Google Reader.

    You'll see that you will have a lot of pple following what you are twittering

    get a lot of followers - usually entails you following people back but there are other ways.

    pop your website link in your profile. and as ^^^ says add your feed (if you have one) to twitterfeed.

    and if you want to really go crazy send a tweet out with a link back to your site every now and then.

    "i just tried this great new weight loss program <LINK>"

    "girls on this site are hot. check this babe out: <LINK>"

    those aren't too spammy are they?

    hi, firstly, i do twitter just for fun and just give update to my fans in may site.. but right now, twitter i do more on 'promotion'... yes! it can be a promotion tool for me! :)

    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service, that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

    Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. The sender can restrict delivery to those in his or her circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS, email or through an application such as Tweetie, TwitterFon, Twitterrific, Feedalizr or Facebook. For SMS, four gateway numbers are currently available: short codes for the United States, Canada, and India, as well as a United Kingdom-based number for international use. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email.

    Twitter had by one measure over 3 million accounts and by another, well over 5 million visitors in September 2008 which was a fivefold increase in a month.

    Twitter is apparently one of the fastest growing social media outlets that is continuing to grow. Assuming you have the right audience and enough followers, your sure to make some serious cash from it.

    Yes. Expecially since pownce.com which was considered as a competer with twitter.com has been closed on 15th this month. Then many people on pownce have moved to twitter now. :D
