    TWITTER is the easiest social media platform to use.
    It's basically just world-wide Text Messaging.
    You can follow people or interests you like, and soon other people will start following you.

    The people following you will see your Tweets (Messages).
    And, likewise, you will see the Tweets of the people you follow.
    The Hashtag feature ( # ) works like a search. If you hashtag a word, then it will come up for anybody searching for that word.
    So if you want a lot of Air-rifle followers. Maybe you should put #Airrifle and #Airrifles in your Tweet.
    The @ symbol is before a users name. So if you want the attention of someone, you can include that in your Tweet too.
    If you wanted to grab TORMACH's attention, you would include @Tormach and #Tormach in your Tweet.

    Don't fret. It's an easy learning curve. You'll get it. The more you play with it, the more it makes sense.

    if you have a business related account, keep everything you do business related. There's nothing worse than getting posts from someone on a political rant.
    This is VERY, VERY good advise.
    Keep your Business account focused on business, NOT POLITICS.
    It doesn't matter if you're Left wing or Right wing. You will turn off 50% of your customers with Political B.S.
    What kind of business would turn-away 50% of their customers?
    Just look at what's happened to the Media, The NFL, Hollywood, and Late-night talk shows.
    Half of their paying customers, GONE.

    It's only been a couple of weeks since opening up a Twitter account. It started out OK but now I see what others had warned me about.

    I was hoping to connect with like-minded Umarex Octane shooters and air gunners in general and I actually did at first but, it didn't take long before the majority of the tweets I was getting were made up of all manner of political rants from folks who's monikers described them as avid air gun enthusiasts, hunters, outdoorsman, etc. At this point it just doesn't seem like it's worth my time to keep up with it all so I just took steps to deactivate that twitter account.

    The Instagram account I started at about the same time seems to be a little more niche-oriented at this point. I'm not getting the constant feed of anti-this and anti-that I was getting from the few followers I'd managed to accumulate on the Twitter site. The few Instagram account followers I now have on the other hand, appear to be a little more focused. The air gunners are really air gunners and the outdoors people are really outdoors people. I'm not getting the barrage of political commentary there that I was getting from the twitter feeds.

    I'm sure it meant something important to the authors of those tweets but to me it was just a jumble of anger and hate mixed with genuine concern. Don't get me wrong; I too despise alot of the things going on in our country and the world but those who continually harp on everything that's wrong in the world well, in doing this they seem to completely loose sight of all of the good that still exists.

    The absolute worst thing for me was when I found myself getting sucked into these "War-Of-Words". Few things can screw up an otherwise good day like getting into a literary shouting match with someone who most likely has no real clue what they're arguing about. They gave every indication that they were just arguing for the sake of arguing. I thought it best to just clear out of that environment.

    Yea; that seems to be the case as far as I can see. I'm sure there are plenty of "A-Holes" there. It's just that you have to deliberately go looking for them to find them were as on the twitter site they seemed to come looking for you. I really don't have time for that. If I wanted to deal with that type I'd go visit some of my relatives or maybe my former work manager.

    I'm a huge airgun fan so I'll check out your site. I have a large collection of PCP air rifles for hunting and target shooting. It's an awesome and very addictive hobby!

    The key words to remember for getting good online results is "landing pages". You want people to be able to reach your site through as many other sites as possible. Posting links on forums like this is a good idea. Do it on as many forums as possible (including airgun forums like Airgun Nation). This way, people will be more likely to find you when they search for airgun stuff on google.

    Note how CNC zone threads always come up in the google search results when you search for anything CNC or milling related. More landing pages!

    Also, make sure to post lots of searchable videos on YouTube with links to your site in the description - again - more landing pages to help people find you. Post links to your videos on your twitter, Facebook, instagram etc pages. Post links to your twitter, FB and instagram pages on each of your videos to maximize landing pages.
