I asked this in the Adsense forum but no one seemed to know anything since I had zero responses, so I'll ask here.

What's the point of Twitter for internet marketing? Is it to get some more traffic, backlinks, or something else? Also what are you supposed to tweet on twitter? Also do I get followers by just following other people, because it seems to be working, but I doubt they care about any of my tweets? Can anyone give me the big picture of how twitter can be used?

    as far as what to post on twitter, you can link your blog to it, so everytime you add content is it automatically posted on twitter. If you post absolutely nothing else you will slowly get more followers when you post content, so either way it does not hurt your website at all.. just adds more traffic.

    So what I'm understanding is that Twitter is just to drive traffic to the site. I heard that using Tweetmeme will give you a backlink, is this true? And if it is how do you use Tweetmeme, like is there a plugin?

      Twitter isn't just to drive traffic to your site, although that's a benefit of using it.

      Twitter is a social network. Think of it like one huge conversation, with millions of smaller conversations going on, all at once. Find the conversation in your niche, jump in and start networking with other people in your niche and people will end up visiting your site if you're not just spamming the hell out of them with your links. A good rule of thumb, per most of the leading social media experts is 12 to 20 conversational type tweets for every 1 self-promotional type tweet.

      Tweetmeme allows people to share your blog posts on Twitter. It gives a link back to your post in the tweet, but it doesn't count for much as far as seo goes. There is a Tweetmeme plugin, and you can find it if you search for Tweetmeme in the plugin section of your WordPress dashboard.

    Twitter isn't for internet marketing. It's for sending short messages to people who want to receive them from you. You can USE this for internet marketing, but how you use it is entirely up to you. Think about what you do and how you could BEST make use of short messages to your followers.

    Well with Twitter - Like previously mentioned it is a social networking site where others can communicate with others....

    So with Internet Marketing, if you can get followers and publish a tweet then you are basically driving traffic to whatever you put as your tweet!

    Hope this Helps

    How you use Twitter depends on your business. I use it to build brand awareness amoung local movers and shakers in my home town. Here's a strategy: go find the twitter account of your mayor, chief of police, top business leaders, chamber of commerce, etc. By hooking up with these people you'll have an amazing high profile platform to reach all the right people.

    Twitter is great for getting people on your list. Make some catchy tweets and send them to a squeeze page with a great freebie. Many people are not in the buying mindset on twitter but they love freebies. Then you sell them later on.
