Twitter intro … a bit about @Floatltd

Thanks for following! I just read an article suggesting I link to a bit about me as a fellow Tweeter so here goes …

tim in van 126 x 86 for homepage

Most of my tweets are general chit chat or about plastering, plumbing, garage conversions and generally running a small business in the trades sector.   I am a bit of a newbie but have read info to pick up tips. Sorry if I get things wrong occasionally or don’t follow twitter etiquette.

Other info on me as a Tweeter:

  • A lot of my followers are either based in Huntingdon, and Cambridgeshire or are connected with trades or small businesses in some way (though there are spammers in my list that I haven’t got rid of yet)
  • I will try to RT and Mention as much as possible, when relevant & interesting to followers or when I think they could contribute or give advice or join in fun
  • If you want including on a #ff just DM me but don’t be offended if I don’t #ff you as it’s probably that I have #ff too many people that day and don’t want to irritate others.
  • My wife is my business partner who sometimes tweets for Float. To follow her directly  @maxinemaxxy or @creditmanageruk

Thanks for following and looking forward to our tweets
