This is content we’ve hand picked from across the Internet because it gives us a buzz we know you’ll love too.

To be successful on Twitter, you’ve ultimately got to integrate it into your day-to-day life. If it becomes a bolt-on after a long day’s work, updating your Twitter feed will quickly get dropped by the wayside.

In other words, Twitter must become a habit. That’s why we think Media Bistro’s 10 Habits of Great Tweeters rocks. Even if you’re starting from scratch, you can learn from the best.

Continuing with the Twitter theme, “how do I get retweeted?” is a common question brands ask. Well, here are 52 answers to that one from The Wishpond. Plus, following The Wishpond’s advice will not only get you retweeted, it will make your whole Twitter account awesome.

Reflective types will enjoy this opinion piece on why Twitter must clamp down on fake followers. If you didn’t know, unscrupulous online hackers will sell you thousands of Twitter of followers for just a few dollars. The main lesson here is: don’t buy fake followers. It’s a waste of moulah.

Instead, you want to find real followers, and what better way to begin than with some of the biggest influencers in cyberspace? This article from Eberman Digital will get you started.
