    Even if you don’t plan to Tweet much, having a Twitter account can be very useful as a way to follow breaking news, research on a multitude of topics, and communicate directly with journalists, elected officials and to get customer service from a reluctant company.

    In this workshop we will:

    • Help you set up a Twitter account
    • Show you how to make adjustments to  your security and privacy settings.
    • Review how to Tweet, including using the #Hashtag
    • Teach search skills on Twitter to find the information you are looking for
    • Review how to Tweet directly to another user (e.g., corporation, journalist, etc…)

    What you need to bring:

    • A smartphone, tablet or laptop
    • If using a smartphone or tablet, you will need to have the Twitter app already downloaded. We will help with account set up.
    • For account set up you will need access to your email and text messages on your cell phone.
