How to Use Twitter for Your Newsletter

Gotta love Twitter. It's like a world-wide networking party – without holding a glass of orange juice in one hand.

Here's how I use it to make my newsletter.

I tweet (and link to) anything I find online that I think would be interesting to my Twitter followers and my newsletter readers. After all, networking – and Twittering – is about adding value to your community.

One of the great things about Twitter is that you can re-tweet other people's tweets that you think are worthwhile and want to share.

Then, when it comes to putting together my newsletter, I visit my Twitter profile and go through my recent tweets to find articles online worth mentioning in the newsletter. I also find some of my own tweets that might be expanded into newsletter articles in themselves.

So Twitter becomes like a notepad of good ideas – a notepad I'm happy to share with the world.
