We all want thousands of followers on Twitter, but the number is not as important as the quality of your network.

Not all online conversations carry the same weight. Many will have no impact on your company and not every mention of your company or brand will require the same amount of attention.

As with traditional media strategies, you must also determine spokespeople for your social media strategy.
