This short guide is based on a paper presented in November 2008 at the conference "Social Web:
Towards Networked Protest Politics?" organized by the University of Siegen, Germany. I want to
thank the organizers of this conference Sigrid Baringhorst, Veronika Kneip, Annegret März and
Johanna Niesyto for the invitation and the opportunity to formulate in writing my thoughts on the
uses of Twitter for political activists. I also want to thank Patrick Meier who encouraged me to write
a practical introduction to Twitter for activists on the basis of this paper and provided valuable
feedback during the writing.
