Twitter Basic: So you want to learn what all the hype
is, but you think it is too complicated? Here is how to learn Twitter
without it being confusing.
Step 1: Join Twitter by going to

Step 2: Once or twice a day type in an update about your day,
such as something special you are doing, some place you might be going,

http://twitter.com/notoverthehill Now you can see updates that
TC and EB make about the Hill. You don't have to go several times a day;
just look once or twice a day. You can see the updates on your Twitter
page too! Also, be sure to follow Cloudeight for news, updates, tech
tips, and more at
Step 4: Find ONE friend and choose to "follow" each other. Now,
once a day, check your friend's page to see what they did today!
That's it. Its not for chatting back and forth, its not for tech
support or questions, it just a little journal to let folks know what
you are up to, and for businesses, its a little journal to share news
and updates or tech tips.
Slowly add a few more friends, maybe a news site, and soon you will
understand what Twitter is about! Next, if you put a Twitter widget on your page, here on The Hill, visitors will see at a glance what you are up to! It will integrate great with The Hill!
