This Twitter Tutorial course is about helping YOU authentically use Twitter! Many use automatic tools to broadcast information to their followers or perhaps re-tweet an idea here and there. Twitter is so much more than the tweet and re-tweet functionality. It can become a powerful personal learning tool, a platform for giving, a competitive intelligence resource and a great way to build a network and personal reputation!


This Twitter tutorial course is primarily video based, but also includes downloadable presentation files and a daily Twitter log to help you implement the principles in your day-to-day Twitter usage.

Most lessons are set up in this format:

  • Presentation of the concept - video presentation going into more detail on the concepts from the introduction video.

The "villager" is Sheila, the founder of the Pennies of Time blog. You'll find out more about her great idea in the twitter tutorial course!

Note - It takes a few seconds for this video to show, but the talking starts immediately.

Setting up lists according to your areas of interest is a great way to go directly to the type of content you are interested in learning from and promoting. It is also a great way to go directly to the people you want to connect and partner with along the way.

We thought you might want to directly translate these principles into day-to-day Twitter use! We've created a one page sheet that we hope you will find helpful in implementing these principles.

We thought you'd enjoy a few additional resources about Twitter. We've put some of our own from Nudge Village, but have included a couple of websites that we think you would find helpful.
