OK, where is the manual? I seem to be facing some Twitter inertia and I need more of a push.
Progress: some success so far, but there seem to be a lot of not-so-obvious technicalities and unwritten protocols. For example the #FF hash-tag. So the protocol here seems to be that you send out a tweet on Friday with the #FF tag and then mention all the good folk you have interacted with that week, using the @name system. This seems to be a way of spreading the word to your followers of someone they in turn might like to follow.
Why #FF? Who knows… Reminds me of Unix operating system commands which were equally short and difficult to guess.
