    Maybe as an addon to other marketing practices, but to be honest, Twitter is for social use.

    At best you should use it to get your target market to warm to you. If you use the account to send constant advertising your followers will abandon you.

    Its all about conversions. If you just want the number then possibly yes.

    Twitter can be a good marketing tool, but you must understand how to use it. As "10:33" says, if you only promote and advertise stuff, people will unfollow quickly. Look around for some good ways to do marketing through Twitter, there are alot of stuff on the net that can help you.

    Twitter can be a valuable tool if used properly. I know some people who have been pretty successful with it. An example of this is... In the adult industry, I know some of the porn stars have twitter accounts with several thousand fans. They're promoting an aff link on their twitter account and getting paid per sign up, doing pretty well :)

    Yes you are totally right! You have to use Twitter like other social networking sites too, build a releation ship with your follower, offer them special and valuable bonuses, for example! :)

    Twitter is really good, but as everyone said you need to know how to use it right. Offer allot of discounts and promotions and free stuff for your services or products. Also you have to have allot of time for it.

    Like every free tool on the web I guess it really depends on how you use it, but if it's promotion you are looking for I think it's definitely a great tool. If you can get enough people to follow you.. it's really like everything else, if you do it well you are going to get tons of traffic to your site.

    This is a hard question. There are twitter haters and there are twitter lovers.

    If you want to use Twitter, make sure its not wasting your time. ie, set up an automatic twitter updater and let it be.

    For my new wordpress blog for example: twitter com/ reteka

    Who knows, maybe you'll get enough followers that you'll get a semi-significant additional traffic/marketing.

    Unfortunately, Twitter is overflowing with bloggers like me - and affiliate spammers.

    Edit: What does it really mean to "know how to use it?"

    Get something viral that is re-tweetable? Maybe. It depends on your kind of site.

    well, if you use it to just throw out offers to your followers you probably won't earn much, and the numbers of followers will quickly be reduced. However if you do target the right people to follow, and hopefully follow you bcak, you can generate some good traffic to your website /blog. As long as provide quality information that your followers are interested in it can work out just fine.

    It is if you do it properly. You have to use some discretion as to when to post updates and when not to. You can't spam the site as not only people will stop following you, but they will ban your account.

    So many noobs talking out of their ass.

    No, twitter is not good for marketing. Period.

    Try it for a couple of months, to see for yourself.

    We are taling about average Joes with their sites, Gomer.

    Shit, companies like Dell promoting big sales can put in a crap ad in a newspaper and make money.

    Can you say, "duh"???

    And the "million" is highly questionable.

    Everyone is jumping on the Twitter band wagon. Twitter is the hottest social networking platform which facilitates micro blogging allowing for huge social networking opportunities. Twitter allows 140 characters mini blog posts to interact with people in your network. You can keep in touch with friends and family or you can use it to as a marketing tool to promote your business. Twitter gives you a global visibility and exposure.

    Numerous add-ons have been introduced which allow you to tweet in an easier manner to increase your tweeter followers. These add-on applications are enjoyable and fun to use and mostly they are absolutely free.
