If you’re on Twitter, you may or may not be using it to its fullest potential.  One way to get involved is to participate in conversations and generate your own to connect with individuals.  (Hopefully these individuals are in your area and are interested in buying or selling a home — or know someone who does.)

Regardless, you can search Twitter to find more information, more conversations applicable to your expertise/area, and more individuals to connect with.

Twitter applications like Tweetdeck and seesmic allow you to search terms within your news stream.  Search on “real estate fargo” (substituting your town/area) and see what you find!

Using advanced search in Twitter, you can find even more information quickly and easily.  Here are key operators to get you started to use the Twitter simple search page.  Happy searching!
