Posted on 03/06/2009 5:40:18 PM PST by MissouriConservative
Ok, here goes one of my very few and far between vanities.
Twitter is a social networking tool that is used by quite a lot of people. Recently the owner of this site posted a story on Twitter being used by the liberals. Twitter is for everyone, it just depends on who uses it. Since it is a simple tool, I feel that it can be utilized for Conservative needs as well. I know of a few FReepers who are on Twitter, including myself.
Twitter can be productive to our movement in any number of ways. Local chapters of FreeRepublic can send out a Tweet (what messages on Twitter are called) and mobilize forces of good far quicker than pinging their lists as not everyone is signed onto their computers every minute of the day. Twitter can send a message to a users phone and since everyone carries their phones with them while out, the message would get out faster.
Another way is that a general FR Twitter ping list could be kept and the list notified on Twitter of breaking news stories on FreeRepublic.
The possibilities are endless as Conservatives are very ingenious, so we could come up with a myriad of ways to use this tool to our benefit.
So I would like to set up a Twitter ping list here on FreeRepublic. If you are on Twitter and would like to make known your user name, just post it here and I will gather the names and with your permission, add you to my list of people on Twitter. And you can add each other as needed.
If this is a horrible suggestion, just say so, I'm not thinned skinned...lol.
I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.
Isn’t twitter just texting by another name
I’ll tell ya mine if ya tell me yours....lol
Thanks for the post. That will help a lot of people get going.
Mine is chuckbaker.
I really appreciate this. I’m under 40, and not too technologically challanged, but I just have a hard time understanding twitter.
Twitter is a little odd. It’s a way to message without messaging. With a text message you have to send out a message to all that you want to see it, one message at a time.
With Twitter, you can send out the message to all who are following you. It’s just a nice way to get out a message in a hurry.
It’s how I keep in touch with a lot of friends.
Twitter has allowed fake “Rush Limbaugh” accounts to go unchecked. As far as I know they have not removed, or refused to remove the accounts. I will NEVER use Twitter. It is a hotbed for crap.
I just followed you. I’m moosebuster. :o)
I’ve added you to my list, if that’s ok with you...lol
After being rejected many times I now have a name 2devildogs
It’s not nearly as bad as Facebook. You will be Tweeting before you know it...lol
You can let others know that you are posting something, so they can read it too. People post funny, serious, and provocative things.
My question is, uh, how is this more than FR?
