Sharing pictures and product images is also possible with Twitter by using the tool Twitpic. When you make new contacts there may come a time when you want to share some of your pictures with them so that they can get to know you and your business better.
Once youíve created your Twitpic account you can upload your pictures and quickly post them on Twitter. Another great thing about this tool is that it is also compatible with mobile devices which make it easier to share pictures from your mobile device.

If you are using WordPress for your blog, there are quite a few tools that you can use to automate your Twitter activities from inside your dashboard including:
TweetThis plug-in – It will encourage your visitors to tweet your blog post. TweetThis also adds a Twitter link in every blog post you create plus gives you the ability to shorten your blog post URL to fit the 140-character limit. (see http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tweet-this/)
TweetMeme button – Helps other people to easily retweet your post on Twitter and it also shows a count of how many times your blog post has been retweeted. Itís the cool green button you see. (see http://tweetmeme.com/about/retweet_button()
Twitter Tools – This plug-in integrates your blog with Twitter by pulling all your tweets into the side bar of your blog. You can also use it to post new tweets from inside your WordPress blog. See http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-tools/
Now let’s talk about Twollo (http://www.twollo.com/). It is another web based Twitter tool that you can use to find specific people you want to follow. Just type in the subject or topic that interests you and the tool will find people who are talking about the same thing and automatically follows them for you.
