C – do you like this photo that Pamela sent to me? It made me LOL very much and I wanted to share it with you.
C – I did a great deal of research yesterday re stuff we need to know in order to be successful Tweeters. This is what one website said:
Learning how to use this fun, free, and useful tool can be a bit intimidating for the beginner, but don’t be put off – with a little effort and a lot of intuitive “feeling your way through”, you’ll soon be able to use Twitter well – and you might even become ‘digitally’ famous!
Once you’ve started using Twitter, it won’t take long before you come across what’s known as a hashtag. That’s when you see something in a Tweet that has a # prefix. (The # is a hash symbol, hence the term hash tag or, more commonly now, hashtag.)
S – ok I will do some more research then we can go for it.
Much Later …
S – I think we have achieved a great deal and exceeded even our own Twitter expectations by adding a picture from our library.
C – you know what they say two heads are better than one, yesterday was proof yet again that you can teach old dogs new tricks.
S – yes, this is true but we have only achieved one (independent of our blog) Tweet. We have had one reply which, unfortunately, is written in some kind of illegible code.
C – oh, is there some kind of special Twitter language that we don’t know about. It’s all such a mine field.
S – excellent news, break out the wine, I have just checked out our blog stats and we have another follower which brings us up to 128. Do you think this is as a result of sending our Tweet.
C – not sure! Is it from Andy Murry himself? We did wish him well and successfully attach our sheep photo. How are Michael’s troublesome bowels today?
S – well, the operation certainly did mess them up and he has been very stressed but we have at last (thank God) achieved some relief!!! See you tomorrow for some more Tweeting.
