    I love twitter. As long as you don’t alienate your users with useless drivel it is a great tool to expand your online influence. See how it works for me.

    I have just printed out the ebook and really looking forward to reading it.
    Geekpreneurs blogsite also looks interesting, well worth subscribing to.
    It looks like producing a free ebook does help to promote your blog, as I have seen it advertised on many websites.

    The key to twitter is not to think of it as a direct promotion tool but to think of it as a notifying platform for your existing content readers.

    Following lots of other people will give you a chance to answer the questions of those you follow and get you noticed.

    Eventually through word of mouth more people end up following you and only then will it actually be of major importance to your online presence.

    I like twitter. I just started to use it. But i am starting to discover the benefits already. I use twitter to promote my blog posts. After each blog post, I create a tweet and ask question about the the topic I posted in my blog. It seems like working.
