Get into TWITTER

Twitter can bring you relevant business information from many sources, right to your phone, on a regular basis. What you get depends on who you ‘Follow’, that is, the news sources or commentators that you choose to inform you and your business.

It’s like selecting a group of informed industry associates to send you their comments on new products, industry developments and other information relevant to your business. Each ‘Tweet’ begins with a brief comment and usually includes an option to view a more detailed article.

Choose the Twitter accounts you respect as being informed, scan their ‘Following’ list, and maybe ‘Follow’ some of these also. If some Tweets turn out to be uninformative, just choose ‘Unfollow’ to stop receiving them. Twitter users have moved beyond lightweight celebrity gossip to providing a source of serious business commentary.

The following list includes a range of useful twitter feeds such as: Agricultural suppliers, Government agencies and Grower groups. They will regularly send you ‘tweets’ – read the brief text before you open up the link.
