I joined Twitter a few months ago and I have been trying to figure out

  • How it works?
  • What is the point?
  • What do to with it?
  • How to keep up with it?
  • Is this for me personally or for helping spread birth joy?

It has been a journey and I am starting to get it.

I started with Twittermom – which is fun and helps me learn about quite a few of the blog challenges I have done.

I joined Socialoomph, which helped me to automatically follow people back and send automatic message to new followers, which has led to some interesting  and unnecessary connections.  I now need to weed through some of my people.

Last night I joined HootSuite – This is the thing that I think is going to make it all work for me!  I can see twitter and facebook all in one place.  🙂

I got something out of it – I got a tweet that a cool app I wanted to check out was free this weekend!

I helped make a difference – The coolest thing is I made a difference!  I did a search for breastfeeding tweets.  I found this:

I Know breastfeeding is natural. But please dont do it at a restaurant. Go to the BATHROOM.

I was kind of scared because I didn’t know her, I just found her randomly through a search, but I sent her this message.

Breastfeeding is natural and it is best if moms can do it anywhere, even restaurants! http://wp.me/p11Uzw-OB

I was nervous, would she say something back, would she be mad?  I was thrilled to get this response.

thank you for sharing. I think ill change my view about it.

YAY!  I made a difference, using Twitter. There is one more person in the world who will smile at a nursing mom instead of glaring!  🙂

    Good for you for politely standing up for what you believe is right! I haven’t joined Twitter yet. I’m still a little frightened of the time commitment.
