Q) New to Twitter and not sure what to do or tweet?
A) The best thing to do is ASK! In my experience people are always willing to help when people are just getting started. Like all things “social media”, you get out what YOU put in and it will take a little while for you to feel at home. If you are a business avoid “just advertising” and use lots of photos, Twitter people love photos!
