Tweeting in Vain




I registered for Twitter and for the life of me can't figure it out. Oh, I can post a message without a problem. But as far as constructing a site/forum (or whatever it's called) not even the "Help" button could truly help me. And if I look up my own name, it comes back as unregistered. Looks like I'm in trouble if functioning in the social networking world is a requirement for writers!

Now seriously, the entire rest of the world seems able enough to tweet. What am I doing wrong?

If all else fails, I may have to resort to an expert: i.e. someone under the age of 30.

I don't tweet so cannot assist, sorry to say.

There is an article in the May-June issue of Poets and Writers Magazine called "Are Authors Who Twitter Any Fitter". I haven't read it yet but will do so and post a review of sorts on my wriiting blog. I've been considering whether to try it out also, but I'm OLDER than you are, so if you can't figure it out, I'm doomed before I begin!

Pat,
I don't get Twitter either--don't like it like I like Facebook, Linked In and JacketFlap, but WOW!'s blog--THE MUFFIN (http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com) recently had a post from someone who uses Twitter all the time.
Good luck!
Margo
