If you’re involved in internet marketing of any kind you use Twitter. Right? If you don’t, you should run over there right now and get an account! Twitter, love or hate it, is a great tool that everybody should have!Using Twitter is super fast, especially if you use third party software such as tweetdeck or similar products.

Twitter tags are simply references / links you put in your twitter posts which link to the twitter search page for that tag.
Here’s how it works. Inside your twitter post, you simply add the tag, such as #tag. Any word started with # (no space) is going to link as a tag. When you click on that, it opens the twitter search page for that phrase.
