    Ironic that you're posting this. I just created a Tweet for my company last night: http://twitter.com/miami_web_sites

    I'll keep you updated on how it does.

    I use it for several clients and it has been very helpful. You have to know how to use Twitter. It is not about getting tons of followers. It is about saying something useful. There is nothing wrong with searching twitter and following lots of people that talk about your subject. Just make sure you communicate with them when they talk. Don't be just a bot. It is ok to post stuff with a bot but don't do it very often and make human tweets as well. Don't bot tweet more than you human tweet. Make sure you unfollow people that don't follow you if your doing this stuff in bulk. It looks bad to be following 1500 people and you have only 500 followers. Learn to use hash tags.

    The proper way to use twitter for marketing is to drive traffic to a capture or opting page. If you use it properly, you can drive huge amounts of traffic to your website, blog, or other advertising media. This process is completely legal. Twitter actually encourages its users to do this.

    And in my practice Twitter is absolutely useless thing… It doesn’t justify itself from marketing point of view, to my mind. But it is onlu my own experience, and others are free to decide if it is profitable to use Twitter.

    I tried using Twitter. I sent their every new added item in my online store. the only result I received - today my account looks very spammy. I think that this is a waisting of time.

    Yes, Twitter is a huge waste of time for straight marketing. Unless you learn to use it creatively, it won't do anything for you.

    twitter if used correctly will help your sales, although it might not be the most efficient thing to spend your time in, you can still convert sales off it.

    I haven't found it to be very useful at all for marketing, and the visitors that do come from it don't convert. But I will admit that I haven't tried very hard with Twitter either.

    Twitter is not a waste of time.

    I've been experimenting with multiple accounts. I have automated twitter marketing software, which allowed me to build up a list of 2500 followers very quickly. I schedule automated tweets for the next 36 hours, directing to my website, from hootsuite. Everone who follows me receives a message directing to my website. I suppose that is very botlike behaviour, but here is the result:

    Looking at google analytics, the ow.ly URLS have given me approximately 20 unique visitors a day with a lower bounce rate than most other media. As I'm starting out with this site, that is about 60% of my daily unique visitors. Looking at the actions they have taken, I can safely say that some of these visits are converting into sales - about 2%.

    Not a huge return, but an easy gain when calculating the time I put into it - everything is automated, and all tweets tracked from hootsuite and google analytics.

    Also, bear in mind that google has started showing a real time feed of tweets on certain keywords. How can twitter not be interesting knowing this?

    I also have another account which I do not automate, but use to build contacts and network.

    Whatever you choose, set the goal in advance: network, or traffic. Both is tough to do on the same account.
