Last week I started the Safe Speed on Twitter.

It came handy with the recent downtime but I am not sure if that many people found it ... !

I hope to keep it updated on 'main points' but I understand there are ways to earn from Twitter so I have a lot to learn, anyone with pointers do tell ... :D

I'd say one way to make use of twitter is to also have a blog of comments on news items that you have been working on. You'd then do that as a link in twitter and it would be a handy way of keeping track of points you were raising too. Links to PRs or news items supporting what you are doing are also useful. Followers should also 're-tweet' what you post so their followers find out more. Don't know how many press contacts are on twitter but it seems a good and new way of doing PRs as you'd just tweet a link with a simple subject reference.

Easiest way to cope with twitter is to download an app called tweetdeck. It makes it much easier to see what you are doing. The web interface is a bit poor. To do a link you literally just write http://www.linklocation.com for the actual link location as it would appear in the browser url bar. Twitter has an auto shortening thingy so it would be converted to a tinyurl before posting if it was over a certain length.

I use a rss news reader called sage. It is available as an add on for firefox. Safspeeds twitter page is available as an rss feed. Just go to the twitter link above the use sage to search for the news links and add it too your list
