Understanding  Twi$er   •  Most  people  know  that  Twi$er  is  a  micro-­‐ blogging  network  of  real-­‐3me  posts  that  are   limited  to  140  characters  or  less,  but  few   people  understand  how  they  might  benefit   from  Twi$er.  The  truth  is  that  Twi$er  is  used   by  many  people  for  many  different  things.  So   what  is  Twi$er,  and  why  should  you  care?

  • 7. Find  People  you  Know   •  Op3onal:  You  can   automaMcally  find  people   you  know  by  selecMng  a   service  you  use,  like  an   email  account.  For   example,  if  you  have  a   Gmail  account,  Twi$er   can  look  for  your  Gmail   contacts  who  are  already   using  Twi$er.  Click  Skip   this  step  at  the  bo$om  of   the  page  if  you  would  like   to  do  this  later.
