Twitter Tutorial, Number 4: Networking Hours

twitter network hours

We’ve now learnt all the essentials of twitter – hashtags, the @ symbol, retweeting, liking, and inserting links and images into our tweets. For our final tutorial I thought I would share my favourite networking hours with you, so that you can put into practice all the things we’ve learnt over the course of the 4 lessons.

My Favourite Networking Hours

All hours are in GMT.

All Week:

#wineoclock #womaninbiz: Mon-Fri, 18:00 – 19:00 – use these two hashtags together, to network with other small business owners; this is a really nice community hour.
