1 2 3 4 - That'll Never Happen Again 🙂

So many business professionals think they know Twitter. They think you Tweet something and the world sees it.

Are you still trying to figure out Twitter, Tweets, Retweets, FollowFriday, # hashtags, @ and other Twitter stuff?  Me too.  It’s not that it’s difficult.  It simply a matter of finding time to read, try, read some more and retry.
