So I just got a twitter. I don't really know how to use it though, right now I'm just following musicians and celebrities. Does anyone on UG use twitter? And what do I tweet about? What do I tweet about? and does it look weird if i keep tweeting if i don't have any followers?

It's a little easier when you have some friends on it. And you'll have followers soon, and by that I mean that random people (who probably aren't even people) will follow you in hopes that you follow them and unfollow you in like a week. It's basically a mess but I love it.

Also my sad little twitter account is hidden in my sig. I'll add any UGers when I get the chance.

Just tweet about whatever you want. You'll get some followers eventually.
I'm sure only about 2 people actually read my tweets but I don't give a crap, I tweet anyway.
My Twitter username is in my sig.
Twitter: ScottWotton
Tumblr: ScottWotton
YouTube: ScottWotton

3DS FC: 5043-1553-4655
Friend Safari: Rock type with Boldore, Pupitar and Barbaracle.

Wants his username as ScottWotton. >.>

Just tweet about what you're doing, funny things you see etc. I got twitter 2 months ago and I'm now on over 600 tweets, it's easy once you get the hang of it. And if you want a UG follower, follow @Pikey_P (me) and I'll give you a follow back.
I sat next to a nun on the bus once, she said hi

Twitter: @Pikey_P - wise words right there.

Most of my tweets are being cynical about trending topics.


@tmorin34 is my name on it, follow me, then I'll look at your tweets and consider following you back, mmk?

Twitter is great, I've met some awesome people through it and made plenty of online friends too. I wouldn't go chasing an audience if I were you, just chat to your friends and anyone you come across talking about the things you're interested in. You'll have enough followers soon enough.

I have a twitter account but I don't really use it except to check on a few people I follow. I have nothing interesting to say anyway
I'll follow you if you want.

edit: the link is on my profile if you want to follow me

Is there a way you can upload pictures in your tweets? I took a picture of this weird bumber sticker I saw yesterday and I want to share it.
#14

It's fine to tweet when you have no followers. You can get more by reaching out and talking to others with @ messages. I sent one to Wil Wheaton, he retweeted what I sent, and I gained 25 followers and a whole bunch of RTs/messages. At this point I was considering leaving Twitter - the extra flow of activity got me interested again.

Mine's in my sig, feel free to follow me and I'll follow you back if you make it known you're from UG and aren't a spambot

You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
There is a small mailbox here.

Joined it in January, and got 77 followers now. It's fun to follow friends and people you know, but you can also follow accounts that spread interesting facts, news, and so on. Also there are accounts that spread short jokes etc, which might help you to get hold of some really cool jokes.

Also, you can link twitter to things. You can post your tweets automatically to FB, or in my case, link Tumblr to twitter, and show a link and the title of things you put on it. Also you can follow some famous people, some actually respond.

Ohyeah, and the news spreads like crazy on twitter. That's useful.

I only have 50 odd followers but about 30 are people i know and talk to so it's pretty good. Also it's handy for when you run out of texts on your phone as you can just tweet to people. And i just tweet what comes into my head usually or stuff that's going on. Also, if there are people you don't want following you, set it to private. I had to do that because my Mum kept having a go at me for using 'colourful language'.

Follow @RuairidhLowe and i'll follow you back.

I like posting things that are barely related to the trending topic.

For example: "Wet Seal is trending worldwide. Well, I suppose he has just been kissed by a rose in the rain."

Don't use Twitpic, as stated earlier in the thread, they changed their TOS so they get all the rights to any pictures uploaded.

Use something like Yfrog instead.

Yeah, but at least in the pit we discuss major global issues seriously and maturely through smart disc-

Yeah you're right.
#32
I still use Twitpic, I don't really care if they own pictures I've taken on my phone.

But yeah, Twitter is really useful if you use it right. Handy for breaking news in any field, good for discussion with people who love the same things you do.

Pretty addictive once you get really into it though.

I use twitter to read some stuff (for example Paramore, Hayley Williams) or when something has happened with somebody (for example, I looked at Bam Margera's twitter after Ryan Dunn's death last Monday)
This will start a RIOT! in me

I just got a Twitter. I really only use it to keep up with people and what's going on. It's pretty easy I'm guessing. Like you could tweet, "Posting on UG to learn how to use my Twitter account". :p I mean, not exactly that, but you catch my drift. Just post about random things you're doing, or random things you see. It's especially fun when you have a camera phone and can take pictures right on the spot.

I understood what you meant You can't really respond to individual tweets, so unless you respond before their next tweet it can get a little confusing unless you add their tweet into your tweet, so you tweet while you tweet cause you like to tweet.
