You tweet therefore you are-or not. Twitter is, in fact, the most misunderstood social media on the planet, so this workshop will focus on the why and how of followers, following, and hashtags. The goal is to turn Twitter into a must-have daily tool for you, regardless of your goals and/or your business. Completion of the Social Media I and Social Media II workshops in January is highly recommended, but not required.
