I like helping people. There I said it. In fact, probably 80% of what I do as @BruneiTweet is to help people with retweets, i.e. repeating other people's tweets. People have asked for help to find things, places and other people (true story). People have also asked for help with spreading information about organised events, promotions, YouTube and blog links, and even hamsters for sale (also a true story).

"Help me help you" ~ Jerry Maguire to Rod Tidwell
The great thing about helping people is that it does not get old. However, I am also a firm believer in empowering help themselves and to help others. This is where Google (or whatever search engine you use) comes in. I am guessing that if people have access to Twitter, chances are they can also access Google from their mobile device or desktop. So, perhaps the next time you need general information about anything, check with Big Brother Google first. Don't get me wrong, I like helping you...but I also like helping you. 8)

Greetings Readers! Globally, Twitter is growing from strength to strength, and it is no surprise that 2010 saw more local businesses launching an account. I have been a quiet observer watching these accounts in action (or inaction), and as this year draws to a close, I felt it was time for a follow-up to the previous Twitter is a Party post. So, here they are - 7 Twitter Tips for Businesses.
1. Be consistent in your branding
Does your organisation already have a known catch phrase, slogan, mission statement, etc? Be true and consistent to your branding and I recommend re-using the same few phrases you are already known for. Include a web link to your homepage or Facebook Page, and (please please please) don't be casual with your profile picture / logo. It is surprising how many businesses use the generic 'egg' picture. No coincidence it is shaped like a 'zero'?
2. Do not rush your launch
Just because your competitors signed up three months ago, do not rush your launch. The maiden 'testing testing' tweet does not impress, and it paints a poor picture of what your business has to offer. E.g. if you run a restaurant, people do not expect you to serve up untested, under-prepared, uncooked meals. In the same way, launch when you are sure, ready and committed...

Greetings Readers! This post is an excerpt from a guest blog post I did for @imaneesha. You can read the rest of it at Manisha's blog here.

...Think of Twitter as the birthday party – fun, happening, you have heard so much about it, more and more of your friends have invited you to come along, etc. Here are some recommendations for what to do, and what not to do at the party...

Greetings Readers! Wow, what a day it has been on the Bruneian twitterverse! I won't go into details, but discussions about Facebook took centre stage. Yea, good ol' Facebook. It got me thinking - What would life be without Facebook? I also asked myself - What was life like before Facebook? (Note: if you have no idea what I am talking about, bring yourself up to speed with these fresh posts by @RanoAdidas@Marul69@SnrPablo and @My7thlife) 

What was life like before Facebook?
