It has probably occurred to you that it seems like an odd idea to spend time sending 140 character messages over the internet to a group of people you might never meet. Entering a strange world where people have ‘followers’ and ‘tweet’ like birds all sounds a little bit odd to say the very least.
This is the first post in a series on how to get the most out of a Twitter as a new user. It is intended to be a very basic introduction on joining the site, its uses and getting started.
We have released this post to help new users get to grips with the site, which we believe has a number of uses to individuals and businesses alike.
We have published this in the run up to the Cornwall Twestival – a global event organised through Twitter to raise money for Charity:Water. The event promises to be an insightful and enjoyable get together of the diverse users (and potential users) of Twitter. For more information or to book a ticket please click here.
Cornish users of an internet based network are to take part in an international charity event taking place across 100 locations worldwide on the evening of Thursday 12th February 2009.
The Cornwall Twestival aims to bring together users of the social networking site, Twitter, which provides its members with opportunities to meet, discuss and share ideas through the posting of short messages over the internet.
