Just joined Twitter. I am told this is one of the things ebook authors need to do these days, so long overdue.
Joined Gransnet there. Looked for other GNers. Found only a couple of you. Maybe you lurk under other names?
Can I invite you to join me in this other medium? @jess_madge
Come out and play!

I think my son put me on Twitter, but can't for the life of me remember my i.d. I must ask him. How clueless is that? I'm not normally cyberphobic!

Annobel Wed 18-Jul-12 09:21:22

Surprise, surprise, I have just found myself on Twitter. There are about a million tweets from Age UK. How did they find me?

Just followed you Jess. But I am clueless about Twitter I keep having a go and hoping it will all become clear eventuallyconfused

Annobel Wed 18-Jul-12 09:27:17

I tried to tweet you, Jess, but not sure it worked!

Annobel Wed 18-Jul-12 09:31:16

Think I've done it now.

I have followed you, jessM and Gransnet is following you as I type. (We can multitask here). We love twitter...

Annobel Wed 18-Jul-12 09:48:26

glassortwo Wed 18-Jul-12 09:49:59

I've joined Twitter but still wondering what the purpose of it all is confused
It was very useful when I was having trouble with one of the electricity supply companies and I "tweeted" them with a complaint. Got a result in an hour compared with the previously ignored emails and phone calls!

glassortwo Wed 18-Jul-12 10:26:52

yoga I am @glassortwo if you want to find me.

greenmossgiel Wed 18-Jul-12 10:46:18

Can anyone join? I see it on the Facebook pages, but haven't ever taken much notice. I always wondered what the point of it was, too.

glassortwo Wed 18-Jul-12 11:24:29

Yes green just follow the link and join.

Notsogrand Wed 18-Jul-12 11:39:19

I love much news and gossip! Like you yoga, I've had fast results from tweeting complaints.
I'm @oldfluff if anyone wants to find me.

Annobel Wed 18-Jul-12 12:06:27
