How to Twitter

Why Twitter?

If you want others to follow your latest thoughts/news

If you want to follow breaking news from your favorite organization or person like:

http://twitter.com/Saundersbooks, Oprah, whitehouse, CDCemergency, Reuters_TopNews,
It’s free

You don’t have to be someone’s friend to see what they’re up to and visa versa.


Go To: www.Twitter.com
Click on: Get Started—Join!
Full name: (can have spaces in it-people will see it)
Username: How you want people to see you
Type in those security words
Click on: Create my account

Tabs in upper right:

Profile: Lists all your updates—this is what people see when deciding if they want to follow you
Find People: Provides ways for you to invite by email, find on Twitter, on other networks. If you still can’t find someone, try clicking into “search” at the bottom which allows you to do a more advanced search on a person or topic.
