You know you need to be on Twitter but you still don’t “get it”.  Neither did I.  I was a facebook gal, through and through, how on earth could I communicate in just 140 characters? I was used to a whole facebook status to play with, and couldn’t see how it could work.

So, how am I qualified to write this book? I’m not really, I’m just a simple northern lass who found a way to make Twitter work for her, and it’s that journey that I am going to share here with you.  I’m not saying that this will work for everyone, but it has worked for me, and if nothing else, it will help take some of the mystery out of Twitter for you.  I would however like to point out that in the space of just a few months I personally had six Clients who could all be attributed to Twitter and this number has grown considerably since then, I know of other contacts who have also had success with Twitter, so I am talking from direct experience here, I would say over 90% of my business can now be attributed back to Twitter.

Before we go any further though, I do feel I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Nikki Pilkington of, it was talking to Nikki in a forum that convinced me I should give Twitter a go, and it was some training from Nikki that got me started on the way to the Twitter addict that I am these days.

I joined Twitter in April 2009, and didn’t really do anything with it at all till I started following Nikki’s training in October 2009.  This coincided with me setting up my own Virtual Assistant business in the September.  I knew that working as a Virtual Assistant it was vital for me to build relationships via social media, and so far I had really only concentrated my efforts on forums.

To give you an idea of how far I came in a very short time, in just 279 days I had amassed 1028 followers (after culling but more on that later) and had generated over 8000 tweets.  Now at the time of revising the book I have over 3000 followers and have generated over 46,000 tweets, you could say I am a bit of a Twitter Addict!
