Texas Twitter Tales – Notes on Texas Wines from the World of Social Media
Its good to see how many people are using the hashtag #TXwine to tag their tweets….
For those of you not tweeting about your Texas wine experiences (tourists, consumers, winemakers, growers), here are some examples of how it works. Twitter is basically, the “buzz” of the social media world. The more people that tweet about Texas wine, the more people read about Texas wine. Just start a free Twitter accound at: http://www.twitter.com and type by answering the very simple questions…”What am I doing? Where am I going? What’s new? Who did I meet?
Lots of good stuff going on in the world of Texas wine and the world of Social Media for Texas wine; see below:
