How To Join Twitter

Feeling left behind on social media? Watch this helpful Videojug tutorial and learn how to sign up on Twitter and interact with your friends and your business colleagues!

Twitter is a social network that enables you to stay in touch with your friends and your business colleagues by way of something called a Tweet. Now, a Tweet is a 140-character update that can be anything from telling your friends what you're up to, to giving your business colleagues or clients an update about your business. Now, I'm going to show you how you can set up your Twitter account.

So what you do is enter your full name and your e-mail and your password. Make sure this is a mixture of letters and numbers, and then click on the Sign Up button. Now, on the next screen, Twitter will suggest a username for you.

Now, when you set up your Twitter username, it needs to be something that is memorable and that is relevant to your business. So for example, if you're an osteopath, say you're based in Lincoln, you could create a username for yourself that says “osteolincoln”. Now, it's very important that your Twitter username is short because in Twitter, you only have 140 characters to write your Tweets.

If someone quotes you in their Tweet and you've got a very long username, they'll have very little room to include what you've written. So once you've found a suitable username, click on Create My Account. And now your Twitter account is setup and you're ready to interact with your friends and your business colleagues! .
