What’s Twitter, some of you might ask. It’s a free social network that lets people communicate via short messages (140 characters or fewer) called tweets.
Go here to see our Twitter page. Under “Following” on the right, click the icons to see Twitter pages we’re following.
To join Twitter, you first create a profile and search for others to follow. A genealogy search brings up bloggers, enthusiasts, libraries and publications, who tweet about news, their research, what they’re doing and random thoughts. When you log in to your profile, you can tweet and view the tweets of people you’re following.
This is just the basics. For more details, go to Twitter’s home page.
