What am I....a Bird???? Why Tweet???
I held out for so long before I jumped on the Twitter Train.....
I'm way too lazy and busy to learn something new most days. Well, I found it to be very simple and an easy way to get updates about free stuff.
Dentyne sent me 2 free containers with 60 pieces of gum for my tweet!
I signed up at twitter.com and I 'follow' my favorite sites free samples , Swagbucks , friends and other blogs for updates.
I thought I had to have a phone with internet access, which I don't. And I didn't know why anyone would want to know when I was vacuuming or taking out the trash...LOL
Those are misconceptions, you don't need internet on your phone. I just go online if I want to do a status update. These days my status just consist of a phrase that might win me something or if I've written a new blog post to update those following me.
An example if my Free Samples site is having a giveaway...I would tweet @newfreesamples thank you for a chance to win a free car!!!!
If they actually had that giveaway...I would be entered and they would see my tweet because of the @.....
What I LOVE most about twitter is that there is a little phone icon that when turned on will send texts to my phone. It's way too time consuming to chase samples around the internet.....So by following my free samples site I get texts to my phone with the latest sample.
It's nice because if it's a good one, I'll go sign up before it's gone. Or I can choose to ingore it.
Sign up with the free samples link and follow them on twitter for these great samples. Some of these are also my Swagbucks rewards.
I love the opportunity to try a product out for free to see if I would like to buy and use it. For the items I don't use I donate or make a nice gift basket for friends.
I hope that kinda explains twitter and I hope you follow me so I can see your tweets........
