Twitter 101: Making Sense of Twitter

Words like re-tweet, hashtag, and DM may sound like a foreign language, but don’t let a lack of understanding keep you from utilizing this powerful medium. In fact, once you learn Twitter’s basic terminology, you may find it not only easy to use, but also instrumental in meeting your business goals. Attendees will learn:

  •  Common Twitter terms and their usage
  • Strategies for attracting followers
  • How to create powerful messages in just 140-characters
  • Applications that make Twitter easier to manage
  • How you can use Twitter to grow your business

Each participant of this course should have their own laptop that is able to connect with WiFi. To gain the most from this class, students should already have a profile on Twitter.

When:                   April 7, 2015; 9:30 am -11:30 am
