Everyone starts somewhere in Social Media. Tips and tricks we’ve all learned along the way can be especially helpful to those still navigating uncharted waters.
This interview series features twitter accounts in and around the construction industry, a growing population within the Twittersphere. My only disclaimer is that I do not always agree with the advice.

1. When did you start your twitter account?
May 14, 2009 but I did not really get active until late 2010.
2. What was your biggest obstacle in twitter?
Time management is my biggest obstacle. I have to be very cognizant of it or hours can go by in a flash.
3. How often do you tweet? Do you have a schedule?
I do not have a set schedule for tweeting during the day. Every morning I check my mentions and respond. I tweet news as I get it and sometimes retweet kitchen and bath information from bloggers I follow. I keep Hootsuite open during the day and monitor it. I manage a twitter chat that is every Wednesday. On some weeks my tweets are concentrated there.
