How To Use Twitter For Seniors: Basic Instructions

Posted by Ruby Cemental on Mar 28, 2017 5:30:00 PM

Twitter_ipad-LR.jpgTwitter is one of the most popular social media sites in the world. Are you using it? If not, you are missing out on the chance to get news, health tips, entertainment info, hobby ideas, and so much more, all in one place. It's completely free and very easy to set up and use an account. Here are a few basic instructions to help you get started.

Visit Twitter.com and click on SIGNUP. The only information they ask for is your first and last name, an email address or mobile phone number, and a password that you choose. Next it's time for you to set up a unique user name so that the world knows who you are. You can keep it simple and pick one of their suggestions. Or you can make up something cute like NiftyNana or PlayfulPapa. Have some fun with it. And be sure to confirm your account when you receive their text or email.

Now you're ready to start following other users. This means that their tweets will show up in your news feed. There are likely people and organizations that you enjoy keeping up with. You can just type their name into the search box to find out if they have an account. You can also type in a term like 'housekeeping', 'senior fitness', or 'golf'. Two great accounts to start with are @AgeLite265 and @CaringSrService. They both share practical information for seniors and their families or caregivers.

At Caring Senior Service, our expert staff is comprised of extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and trusted professionals who take pride in helping your loved one manage their daily activities. Contact us today to learn more!
