Twitter allows you to network in two ways: first, it allows you to find individuals that you want to connect with and follow. Secondly, it allows other people to find and follow you. Using Twitter, you can find people with similar interests who will share links, information, and a network of other interesting people with you.
When you first sign-up on Twitter, your profile will look very empty. What you should do is to start by finding some people to follow and have a good collection of users later on. By looking through the profiles of friends, family, and other people who write on interesting topics, and people you find through Twitter search, in due time, you’ll have a solid Twitter network.
