Set up a Twitter search for #ExtQuickBytes

| Leave a comment

Note: This week's QuickByte is by Danny Sussman, Extension webmaster and twitter tweeter extraordinaire!

You've taken the pledge, now start following us Twitter!  You don't even need a Twitter account! 

We'll be sharing Quick Bytes on Twitter using the Extension IT account (@UMNExtIT), or you can listen in on the discussion by following our hashtag: #ExtQuickBytes

I know, I know... It's our second week, and already I'm using jargon like hashtags. Hashtags are just words that everyone agrees to use in their tweets, to make finding each other easy.

To listen in, go to http://search.twitter.com and enter #ExtQuickBytes in the search box, and you can see what everyone is saying.

Twitter Search for #ExtQuickBytes

If you already have a Twitter account, you can save the search. When you click on the search box in Twitter, a list of your saved searches will appear.

We'd love for you to be a part of the conversation. Make a comment, ask a question, start a discussion or share something cool. Just add #ExtQuickBytes to your tweet, and you'll be easy to find.

If you don't have a Twitter account and want to join the conversation, sign up!

Once you're on Twitter, follow @UMNExtIT for more QuickBytes - we have big plans!
