What is Twitter All About?
What's all this about Twitter lately? First I sign up for Facebook. I finally get that down pat. Then everybody's telling me I have to have Twitter. I did, but I have no idea what I'm doing, so please be patient!
The updates on Twitter are called "Tweets". The tweets, or mini-blogs, can only be 140 characters or less, just enough to let your friends and readers know what you're up to.
According to Mia Carter from Suite101, "Twitter members sign up for free on the Twitter website, where it takes just a few minutes to set up a profile and upload a photo. Once that’s complete, Twitter members can start sending out messages (also known as “twittering” or “tweeting”) to friends, family members and co-workers." To learn more about Twitter, check out the rest of this article by Mia. She explains it so much better than I can!
So, look over to the right...right there ---->>>>
There's a block of Twitter Updates in the right hand side bar. At the bottom it says Follow Me On Twitter. Just click the button , follow the instructions, and you can follow me whenever I post. Then, invite your friends to follow you, and they'll invite their friends, and they'll invite their friends and so on and so forth!
Looking forward to Twittering with you!
