New York Times has some very informative tech articles for all levels of expertise.

This week, read an article entitled “Twitter Illiterate? Mastering the @BC’s.” Tech writer Hanna Ingber (@HannaIngber) shares some tips to follow when you start a Twitter account.

The article is broken into 7 sections:

  1. Set up an account
  2. Build a community
  3. Learn the language
  4. Understand the symbols
  5. Tweet like a person
  6. Organize your feed
  7. Tell others

It is very easy to understand and Ingber offers explanations and examples along the way.

Be sure to read the full article, linked above.  There are many helpful tips and some links to prominent feeds like  @CoryBooker, the New Jersey Senator and Newark Mayor who is well-known for connecting with constituents via social media.
