If you are involved in the personal finance world online and are not on Twitter yet, you need to sign up for an account right away. We recently discussed why you should consider attending one of the blogging or personal finance conferences. If you are planning on attending one soon, or even if you can’t make it to one this year, you need to make sure your social media reach reflects your involvement in the online community. If you are not yet involved on Twitter then some at these conferences will not take you seriously.
There are plenty of articles online about how to get started on Twitter but today I wanted to focus on getting involved, specifically, with the personal finance community on Twitter. To get involved specifically with the personal finance community on Twitter, obviously you should find others on Twitter who are involved and begin following them. Another great way to connect with many of them is to start participating in personal finance weekly Twitter chats. Last week we talked about “What is a Twitter Chat and How to Participate” so if you have not participated in a chat before you can visit that post to see how to get started. Here is a list of some of my favorites.
#CreditChat– Experian promotes greater financial health and opportunity to help others understand credit. Join their weekly #CreditChat on Wednesdays at 3pm ET. Follow @Experian_US
#DebtChat– #Debtchat is on Wednesdays at 4pm ET, @DebtHelpOrg is here to arm you with the tools you need to fight back against debt.
