Unraveling Social Media One Tool at a Time

5 Steps Before Your First Tweet

Welcome to Twitter!  Here’s a 5-step guide before you send your first Tweet.

1. Go to Twitter . Follow the instructions to sign up:

2. Pick a handle. Mine is @deborapetersen because deborahpetersen was gone.

3.  Write a brief bio, listing your title, where you work, the beats you cover, and other interests, including a couple personal ones. Add a link to  your publication’s website. Twitter will pick followers for you based on this information

This is mine:

4. Download a profile photo.
