Who are you? What do you look like? What do you want to look like?
If you have recently joined Twitter and have been encouraged, cajoled or pushed into doing so all in the name of #battt (bring a teacher to twitter) then you will more than likely be in the inception stage: the egg.
The first thing you need to do is to break out of that eggshell. You can’t learn to fly whilst you’re still enclosed in that warm, protective shield. If you don’t want to add a photograph of yourself, either you’re not as beautiful as @mrlockyer or you want to retain some sort of anonymity, then choose an avatar instead.
Below are a few links to some avatar creators which are simple, straightforward and FREE!! Test them out, have a play and see what you can come up with. John Mclear also has a few more on his site that are also useful.
So, mission 1 – break out of the eggshell and give your twitter name a face.
