We had great feedback and comments from lensmasters on how to use Twitter from the post How to use Twitter (psst…you need to get more personal).

Also a bunch of people have asked where to find the SquidTeam on Twitter.

You can follow us here:

Squidoo, Our main Squidoo account - @Squidoo

Bonnie Diczhazy, Head of Community – @bdkz (that’s me)

Stephanie Mangino, Magazines Editor – @StephMangino

Robin Svedi, Community Organizer – @_rms

Susan Deppner, Community Organize – @susan52

A few tips from our lensmasters who also use Twitter…

@Squid_Rich - Phrase a tweet as a solution to a problem. There’s always people out there looking for answers.

@thatgrrl  - Tell them why you followed, where you found them, that you read their site, something. People who do get followed often don’t always notice new followers. So, introducing yourself is great and you are far more likely to be followed back.

@rauspitz - Hashtags are great but a lot of smart Twitter types suggest that you keep it to three in any given Tweet. They also suggest that you keep the hashtag fairly short and specific.

@KimberlySchimme – Be generous is the best advice. I’m happy to share something that a fellow writer has done that really spoke to me or addressed a question I had.

@GeekGranny – I tweet as if the message is only going to my sister Carol. This reminds me to be personal and if possible amusing. Focusing on one specific person makes it a more real tweet.

@beadathomemom - Twitter is grouped with the rest of the social media….it takes time to be social and focus not to get caught up in what everyone else is saying..what you may think should only take 5 minutes before you know it a whole hour has gotten away from you. Focus and being deliberate about why you are there would be my best tips.
