Twitter tips--Filling In Twitter account Profile Details

facebook tricks,fb tips,facebook and twitter and digg tips and tricks
When you created your Twitter account, you only had to specify three things about yourself: your name, the Twitter username you preferred, and a password for your account. That made the signup procedure blessedly quick, but it doesn’t give folks much to chew on when they access your profile.

Fortunately, Twitter lets you fill in a few more details after your account is set up, including your time zone, your Web site address, a short bio, your location in the real world, and the language you prefer. Of these, your Web address, bio, and location are the most important because they appear directly on your Twitter home page (as does your real name), so anyone (even non-Twitterers) can see them.

Here are the steps to follow to fill in these profile details:

 1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Settings. The Settings page appears.

 3.  Click the Account tab.

 4.  If you want to adjust your real name, edit the Name text box. Remember that other Twitter users usually   rely on the real name to find people, so don’t be shy about using your full name (although remember that you only get 20 characters to play with here).

 5.  If you want to change the e-mail address that Twitter uses to communicate with you, edit the Email text box. Although you may be tempted to use a fake address here, stick with a legit address to ensure not only that you get notifications from Twitter, but also so you have the option of resetting your password if you
forget it (as I described in last post link).

6.  Use the Time Zone list to choose the option that most closely matches your time zone.

 7.  If you have a separate Web site or blog, use the More Info URL text box to type the address.

8.  In the One Line Bio text box, type a short description of yourself. Somewhat oddly, Twitter gives you 160 characters here; limiting this field to 140 characters would seem more in keeping with the Twitter vibe, but there you go.

Give a bit of time and thought to your Twitter bio. When people are deciding whether to follow you, they look at your recent updates, for sure, but most folks also glance at the bio to get a sense of who you are. If your bio is uninspiring, people might think your tweets will be, too. A bio that portrays a sense of whimsy or fun is always welcome in the Twitter sphere.

9.  Use the Location text box to type your city, state, country, GPS coordinates, or any combination of the four (up to 30 characters).

 10.  Click Save. Twitter updates your profile.
