Benchmark Email has created a Top 10 so great, we’re all shocked that David Letterman hasn’t run it on the Late Show yet. We would still like to share it with you, albeit sans cheeky commentary from Paul Shaffer (some may consider that a positive). At least I’m not making Leno references, right?

Twitter is still a relatively new marketing tool and businesses are still learning on the fly. What works for one company may not necessarily work for another. It’s a trial and error process that changes with each new third party tool, way of looking at analytics or even just the general mood of the web.

Benchmark Email has created a manual to help you along your way through the Twitter jungle. Follow these steps to help you navigate. Without further ado, we would like to introduce the Top 10 Ways to Communicate with Your Twitter Followers (drumroll please).
