In the last few posts, you have signed up on Twitter and you have found some followers.
If you have been extra wonderful, you have also tried to reply or retweet.
Now you are ready for the next adventure...composing your own TWEETS!
How to Compose Tweets Even John Tesh Would Love
1. There is one rule:
A tweet can only be 140 characters or less. It includes letters, numbers, symbols, spaces, weblinks and elipses...I love elipses...
2. Things to tweet about.
a) profession related
b) hobby related
c) life related
You do need to consider your followers and their interests otherwise write your tweets in a diary.
3. Basic Tweet - Just Words
Hey! What is up with the Oilers? Are they still rebuilding?
Note: This tweet is straight up tweeting...no fancy smancy.
4. Adding a Link to a Tweet
The process can be as simple as...writing a tweet and copying and pasting a link on the end...but often the link is too long. See below.
Hey! What is up with the Oilers? Are they still rebuilding? http://www.jewelsfromthecrown.com/2013/7/14/4521014/realignmentpalooza-edmonton-oilers
You need to get a URL shortener to fix this.
1. Go to http://goo.gl/
2. Paste your link into the shortener.
3. Copy the shortened URL and add it to your tweet....
Here is the new Tweet.

I think that is plenty for today! Have fun adding links. Let me know if this is helping you.
Next post we will be getting into HASHTAGS...
Until Next Time,
