I haven't done one of the Twitter Rings before and I feel rather naive asking but would you post an example of how we promote each one of the shops.  I am confused as to exactly how we do this.
Thanks,
Sonnee

Hi Folks.

Can someone help me figure out how to tweet on behalf of the persons we are promoting.

Step 1) I click on the twitter link provided here.

Step 2) I am at Twitter.com/username .

Step 3) What should I do now ????????

Apparently I am the only person lost in the wilderness.

my email is acurantgra@yahoo.com

Thanx.

Oh duh....NOW I remember!  Tweet (promote on twitter by including the given link and saying nice things) about the shop/artist listed.  There are 7 listed here...one for each day of this week.  **bonks hand on her forehead**

Sonnee-
Here is an example:

Love unique, handmade jewelry? Visit this shop for a wealth of beauties! http://www.etsy.com/shop/impressionsbyheidi #HAF

*Only you have to shorten the url using tinyurl.com or one of the other ones.

Hope this helps!

The twitter addresses given in the list are provided for you to follow them.  To tweet your nice words for each one, it's easiest to start from your timeline and use the tweet box there.  The links provided are the ones you'll want to include in your tweet (after shortening the url's using tinyurl.com or another service).  At the end of your tweet, type #HAF so we can all track the tweets and help retweet, etc.

I already goofed... I forgot to put the #HAF tag! I'm sorry I am VERY new to Twitter... is there a way to edit my tweet? Also I was reading Aimee's post about the guidelines and such... I have one question... and feel rather silly asking but what is RT (http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,5084.0.html) lol...

Thanks :)

I'm new to Twitter too, and to the forum.

The example post was really helpful. Thanks

Am now following all seven and have tweeted a link to their sites.  Will tweet again in the week.

Hope I've done it all okay????

Well, I tweeted for all the artists on the list.  I hope I did it right, with the tiny url and the #HAF indication.  I look forward to continuing with this ring and I hope it brings us all lots of views.

That's ok, I see that folks are trying and that's all that matters!  We're just trying to spread a little joy for our fellow members.

A RT = Re Tweet.  If you retweet someones tweet it lets them know that you're watching (because it puts their name and your name in the resulting tweet) and it can also allow you to send a tweet without having to write something of your own!!  Sneaky stuff. ;)

My tweets are all scheduled!! 

Great job, everyone.  Hang in there...it's confusing at first, but the more you tweet, the more it'll make sense to you.  :)

I use Tweetdeck to monitor my Twitter feed... it's not perfect, but I can get a good sense of what folks are doing. 

Great work everyone, seeing a lot of terrific posts!!

I was a little late getting started on the Twitter Ring, and being this is also my first time participating, I went ahead and tweeted at about each, other than myself of course.  I will re-tweet through the 6th for each day, for each artist.  Thanks again to all for this wonderful opportunity to be seen!

I have the first three (HAF subbed for me) scheduled and will do the rest soon. Thanks all for the lovely posts!

Just another tip.  I like to use the @username in my tweets as well, then others who see the post can also check out that person's twitter profile as well as follow the link to the shop and the person you're tweeting will get a notice they've been tweeted which is cool.

ie:
Artisan @myrainstudios creates such beautiful, romantic jewelry like this Seaside Retreat Necklace. http://dld.bz/Qywc #HAF

That odd link is what social oomph did to shorten the URL.

Aimee (and Andrew if you're looking)-
I have noticed there is another use for #HAF which seems to be some sort of lewd reference.  Might be time to change our hash tag?  Don't know...will you guys have a look and see if you see what I mean?  Thanks!   ::) ???

This came up I think in the first round. We decided to keep going with it to flush them out. Since we've picked this up again we'll keep with it and will flush them out. Not sure if we'll change our minds this time.

Oh, sorry, I didn't see it discussed here before, but glad to know you guys are aware.  I like the idea of flushing them out.   Thanks!
