@ SLPTanya Twitter advice for newbies: Don't be shy - just jump in on conversations! #SLPsnQs
Mary @MTMarySLP
@SLPTanya Remember - what you say is there forever (even if you think you've deleted it) think before you type. #SLPsnQs

@SLPTanya Main thing I tell newbies about Twitter: you won't understand it until you start using it, so don't dismiss till you try #SLPsnQs

@SLPTanya I usually recommend they follow news sites or something they're used to following to get the hang of it, then go from there.
SLP Summer @SlpSummer
#SLPsnQs have separate professional and personal twitter accounts. It's tedious to separate them later.
Heather Heaman @hheaman
Complete your profile, use a real photo instead of default egg so clearly not a spammer. #slpeeps #SLPsnQs
SPSET @SPSET
#SLPsnQs My first piece of advice? Just get out there and do it! However, remember everything you say puts an image out to everyone reading.
Christopher Plant @ChrisSPlant
@SLPTanya #slpeeps #SLPsnQs get familiar with hashtags that are used in your area or work and use them
Tara Nicole @taranicole
@SLPTanya find family/friend who knows it & watch them navigate it - helps you create ?'s as to why&how while you watch #SLPsnQs #slpeeps

@SLPTanya, #SLPsnQs. Read "Twitter for Dummies"! There are a lot of features of Twitter that you may not know.

@SLPTanya, #SLPsnQs AND, social media is the venue to get your message out there. U may not like it, but it's the future so don't b left out
Alaina Driedger @khan_alaina
#SLPsnQs I would agree. I am also new to Twitter and have learned the most from watching how others do it. Follow like-minded ppl.
Stacie Attrill @SAttspeech
If using twitter for professional purposes, consider how personal your messages are. How much do you want to mix prof/personal? #SLPsnQs

Speech Lady @SpeechLadyLisa
@SLPTanya use tweetdeck. open and keep search windows with #slpeeps, #slpchat, #slpsnQs, etc.
Lauren Osborne @speechieLO
I've only recently discovered tweetdeck!!! But I second @SLPLisa 's advice! #SLPsnQs
Priya Desai @PriyaDesaiSLT
@SLPTanya 1. follow lots of people to see what people twitter so you can learn 2. Start tweeting 3. Don't forget to acknowledge a follow!
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
@priyaauthor it's funny, I used to greet new followers, but then it got to the point where I couldn't humanly keep up! #slpsnqs
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
@priyaauthor however, I do through my follower list once or twice a week and follow back the ones I feel I would be learning from! #SLPsnQs
