What is a Tweet?
A “Tweet” is a special message you get by using the service called Twitter. We send out tweets to our followers to share food storage tips, emergency and food storage related blog posts, interesting websites, updates to our own site, etc. The tweets come in 160 character messages and you can choose how often to check your tweets. It’s a very easy way to communicate and get some great information.
More About Twitter
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing? Each time you update your status it is called a tweet. You can also sign up to receive tweets from people and businesses you are interested in. To sign up for an account just go to twitter.com. Once you are all set up you can start sending out your tweets by logging in and filling in the box that asks “What are you doing?”.
How To Use Twitter
It’s no fun to tweet out to nobody, so do an email search and see if any if your contacts are on twitter. Then make sure to go to Food Storage Tips and click the “follow” button to start receiving all of our tweets. Whenever you log in to Twitter you will be able to see all the tweets you’ve received. However, if you want an easy way to see them in real-time you must check out the program TWHIRL. This is what we use and it is great. Here is an awesome Twhirl tutorial video I found to help you learn how to use Twhirl and Twitter more effectively.
