Twitter is a dynamic platform for construction related firms and I have been working slowly with an Architect as well as an Environmental and Ecology Consultancy.They have slowly been grasping the worth of this on line tool, but, we have a way to go yet.  It is an excellent tool to network with other like-minded people with the added bonus of not being constrained by distance and time. In other words Twitter is an excellent tool

This tool provides architects, engineers and builders with a remarkable opportunity to tell their story and to build relationships with potential clients. This on line ‘networking’ is about building trust and developing a good reputation with people across the industry. If used well it will also drive people to look more closely at your own website or Blog.

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service, that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Rather than try and invent the wheel and rewrite information readily available on the net I came across these very helpful Training Modules.
