If you’re not using Twitter to meet people and make connections, you should be, writes social media and brand strategist Kim Garst: “It’s amazing how much relationship-building you can do in just 140 characters!”
Garst offers four tips to help you meet people and build relationships with Twitter:
- Create lists. This helps you follow conversations and more easily interact with pertinent groups. You should have a list of people you’d like to get to know, so you can follow their tweets, share their updates and generally interact with them.
- Use the search function. This will help you cut through the overwhelming amount of information flowing through Twitter each day and find the stuff that’s relevant to your interests.
- Keep the conversation flowing. Be yourself and respond to every re-tweet and tweet that’s directed at you, as well as some that aren’t from time to time.
- Take your relationships offline. Once you’ve gotten to know someone on Twitter, meet up in person if you can. If you can’t, try Skype or a Google Hangout. That offline connection will solidify the relationship.
