We have played with it, but it doesnt seem to be a very useful tool

Not really, also all I got was other businesses similar to mine following me!

My wife says to offer free shipping to the first 50 people who follow me, trouble is I have very little to twitter about, seems to be something just for celebs and the self obsessed?

one of the problems with tweets is that unless your victims, opps, followers are online all the time, they will probably never see half of your tweets.

Ebay/Ebay shops are still good for selling, but no good at promoting a business. Many of the big boys seems to favour FB these days for social network promotion

Well I've got 2 followers already, and I've not tweeted anything.

I'm not sure I understand how twitter works, why would anyone follow anyone who's not said anything?

I use Twitter a lot to inform my followers about new Guides that I'm writing, it must be working as i'm getting more followers all the time (418 now), I also use it to post info to friends/colleauges as you can send both public and direct (private) messages

I write Step by Step Guides for Windows Server Administrators in particular those you use a product called System Center Configuration Manager,

I really like Twitter and use it daily (reading/posting)

cheers

Do you find that the followers lead to extra business?

well it's not a business per-se, it's something I do as part of my career, and does it help with views of the guides,yep it does ! so I'm all for it :) plus i find it's a very good way of keeping an eye on the 'pulse' of what is happening right now
