Before You Sign Up for Twitter

So you’re ready to give Twitter a try—terrific! But where do you start? Here is a series of posts of things I wish someone had told me when I was first getting started on Twitter:

  1. How to Choose Good Twitter Names
  2. Your Twitter Profile and First Impressions
  3. Twitter Background: Don’t Do It!
  4. Tweet Before You Follow

I plan to address practical issues of using Twitter in a separate series, Twitter Practical How-to’s. But what about the initial setup—is there anything else you would recommend to people who are just getting started?

(If you haven’t decided about Twitter, see my series Why Twitter?)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
