  • The one Twitter flirting essential is using direct message. Bantering via @ is a great way to get noticed and create a bond, but switching to the private DM space will let you get a feel for your crush's true interest level.
  • Forget your expectations. Relationship dynamics are always a little different online than they are offline, and it's easy to get wrapped up in emotions if you tweet a lot before meeting. Don't think too far ahead until you've made physical contact and can better gauge chemistry.

  • Make sure you set up another date. Find commonality through conversation and play it up while you're still together, like going to a concert or checking out a new restaurant. This tests the interest of your Twitter crush and signals whether you're on the same page.

A relationship can spring up from any social interaction, whether you're flirting at the grocery store, on an online dating site or through a social media network. The most important thing to remember is to open yourself up to the idea of love and all the great things that come with it. Because at the end of the day, you know you've got more than just tweets on the brain!
