In my opinion, Twitter is the easiest way for people new to social media to get involved.

But What’s Twitter?


The New York Times says:

Twitter is a simple messaging service that you’ve either heard about a lot or not at all. Either way, it’s a fun and useful tool, well worth trying if you want to reach potential and existing customers, employees or employers.
