Why Food Bloggers and Foodies Should Enter Into the Twitter World

Jump into TwitterHuman beings are sociable by nature, we need to interact between us. Twitter is a tool and a community where you can establish conversations, make relationships and to be entertaining.

If you’re already using it, in this post you’ll discover more interesting people to follow as well as resources and seductive links (it’s impossible to know everything and everybody).
If you’re totally new about Twitter, it’s never too late to start!

Briefly What’s Twitter? It’s a microblogging platform, “micro” because the messages must be lower than 140 characters, sent by web or by your mobile. This limit tends you to resume your ideas, thoughts or news to a concise point.

Twitter folks: TweepsWhat to tweet? Well, you can say what you like, since your daily routine, your favorite recipe, questions, your new exotic food or gadget, answer to your followers, read news..it’s up to you!, but try to not be boring; this is too personal. To reply somebody begin with @name and a DM, direct message, with d name.

In my case, whenever it’s possible, I use it several times in the week, depending of the activity I have.
You’ll see people hung all days or others that appears from time to time.
It’s not good seen to follow tons of people and a handful following you, because this behaviour is spammy and you could be penalised!

Niall Harbison

This is a fantastic resource for foodies as it can be hard on twitter to find people in your area of interest without manually searching. Hopefully they might include groups soon so as you could follow chefs, waiters etc.
