    Good find!

    For Small Business, it's a good idea to sign up a twitter on the company name.

    I guess it will only work for people who has a build their credibility on twitter, and not for spammers I guess..

    The characters of a twitter post is around 120 characters. You may be able to get 20 words into a tweet. So what about posting 8 tweets that make up a mini article. The content gets crawled and ranks on the twitter boost. Anybody think that this may work?

    Its a good thing for people trying to accomplish traffic to their sites via twitter.

    Just noticed the stream of tweets for certain topics just like Haiti. Not a bad idea if you ask me ...

    Some of the ranking factors that Google uses to rank twitter accounts is discussed here

    According to Amit Singhal, the lead developer of real-time search at Google:

    1) "as established users follow another user, the quality of the followed user goes up as well"
    2) "it's not just about how many followers you get. It's about how reputable those followers are"
    3) hashtags in tweets are a negative quality factor

    I was wondering whether to "Hash or not Hash"....have not seen a significant difference either way on my end.

    If you look at www.wefollow.com you will realize it is no longer about how many followers you have but your reach, including the retweet power and such and who will see it.

    So I am pretty much looking at that and realize it makes a lot of sense. Twitter appears to be a lot better than bing for example when it comes to determining validity.

    Happy to hear about the hashtags.
    Had to unfollow some people for overdoing the

    Which should be a reminder: If anybody here autofollows, take your time and find the right accounts to follow. If you target autofollowers, you will not reach your reach.

    The hash mark (#) in Twitter is a "keyword" tag that tiggers a Twitter search when clicking on URLs with a hash mark. Twitter searches for posts that have been tagged with that keyword.

    Right, but unless you have 50 accounts mass tagging it at the same time, I don't see too much of an effect
