Twitter is good when you work on adding correct people if not than you'll have bunch of advertisers posting same exact thing to promote their projects and your tweets would be useless.

When you add people, make sure to add only those people (civilians) who maybe interested in your web/forum content, and skip your competitors. Than your tweets would be actually useful. If you want to bring new members, you've got to post ads on craiglist every 2nd day.

doesn't posting on craigslist attract a lot of spammers?

Thanks for the advices. I liked it a lot.

You welcome mate, glad I could help you.

Nice tips however ""Welcome Topic" is a bad idea. I don't think we need that as I'm sure new members would be happy to post their own intro or current members post a welcome thread for new members.

Can someone explain to me how to use craiglist because it looks confusing and all jumbled up to me  :-\

Dismal Shadow you can't say it's bad idea unless you tried it. I tried it and it helps.

I did.  :)
But I removed it.

I only remove topics that don't have members posts. Many members like to post replies welcoming new users and that's why I'm for this feature.
