The Twittering Genealogist – Sign up for Twitter

Friday, 8 Jan 2010 | by Mark Tucker

It is easy to sign up for Twitter. You can do it in two minutes or less.  In this video, I will show you how to sign up for Twitter and give you a quick tour around the site. I also share an idea specific to genealogists.

For best viewing, click on the video while it is playing to view a larger version on the YouTube site & click the HD button to see it in high definition:


Did you find this video helpful? Do you have any other tips for setting up an account for a genealogist? What do you find most confusing about Twitter? If you are not signed up for Twitter now, are you going to sign up after watching the video?

I would love to hear your comments.  If you would like to follow me on Twitter, my username is marktucker.
