3 Reasons why you want to fill in your bio on twitter

For someone who might tweet once a month, I'm certainly not a twitter expert in any way, shape or form.
But one feature I like about twitter is the bio section. It's your small little space in the twitterverse that distinguishes you from all the other tweeps. So why don't some people fill it out? I'm sure they could come up with a zillion reasons, but here are my reasons why you should:

1. Look me up Just about the entire world is tweeting at any given time. How do I know that you're the only one who makes plush clocks?

2. A-list baby! I love twitter's list functionality. It allows you to categorize your followers into themed lists and you can tweet specifically to those list. This is a good way to see where you fit and who is interested in what you have to offer.

3. Characters = Clicks More times then not, I've clicked on someone's blog or store link because of what they wrote in their bio. Many artisans and artists alike, swear by twitter as a way to increase visibility and sales.

Here are some bios I found especially interesting
