Gonna try this and see if there's interest: Need an audit of your Twitter account? $400 for a written assessment of your Twitter account, including 10 recommendations to improve AND a free hard copy of my book - Twitter for Skeptics. Contact me via Email don @ donpower.com, Twitter @donpower, Facebook or LinkedIn to discuss the details. Thanks! Please share if you know someone who could use this.
