Start real conversations with these experts!
The easiest thing to do after you create a new twitter account is to follow people. That’s the easy part. What’s difficult is to have them follow you or at least have a meaningful conversation. Before starting up a conversation, it’s always a good idea to make lists of the people you would like to follow and categorize them accordingly. That way, you can easily filter through the type of news you want to receive.
But that still won’t help you much to get in touch with the people you want to contact. The challenge gets even tougher when you want to communicate with a well known person.
