I thought I would wait a bit to post here -- to give me time to tweet something interesting -- but it looks like that's never going to happen!

I am https://twitter.com/soniagensler

I went on a brief following spree of people who posted in this thread, and then I got nervous/self-conscious and stopped.  Will return later if I can get my nerve up!

I joined Twitter a few months ago and, while sometimes I need breaks from it, I do like being able to follow agents or other writers and gradually broaden my circle. I also find it handy for keeping in contact with people who don't blog that much. My twitter is here: http://www.twitter.com/hcor. I'm going to go back through the pages and add people. :)

Some-one please explain.  I am hearing all about this and know absolutely nothing.  It makes me like a real twitter.

It's a micro-blogging site.  Your posts can be no more than 140 characters.  You network and follow people--other sites call it "friending," but on Twitter it's not mutual.  Many readers and writers follow each other on it.

Okay, I know I'm a total dodo but could you guys please help me.  :duh  I'm trying to sign up for Twitter and supposedly now have an account. 

I made a mistake when they asked if I wanted to follow those 20 people they suggest to you.  I didn't realize I had to uncheck them.  I stupidly clicked "Next" and now I'm following 20 people I have absolutely no desire to follow.  Please tell me how to unfollow them.  I checked Twitter's FAQ and they said if I went to my page of followers there would be a drop down menu that allowed me to unfollow someone.  But I've looked and looked and I can't find any drop down options.

Also--did you give them the password to your email when they asked?  I don't want to do that and I don't see why they need it.  Will I not be able to function on Twitter if I don't give it to them?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!!! :thanks

Ev,

I just checked on my Twitter and here's how it went: Click on "following" to get to the page of people you are following. On the right corner of the box of each person you follow there is a little gear symbol. If you click on that a box drops down with an unfollow option.

If that doesn't work for you, you can go to each persons actual page and remove them from there.

And I did give Twitter an email address when I set it up. When I get a DM(direct message) it emails me, which has worked out well. I could definitely function without it though.

Hope that helps!

Heather

Thanks, Heather! That definitely helped and your instructions worked just fine. :thankyou  You're my hero!  As soon as I figure the rest of this all out I'll start following you.

I gave them my email address.  I don't mind that.  I just didn't want to give them my password to my email account.  I couldn't see any reason they'd need that.

Congrats on your upcoming book.  It looks like it's a cute one.
#259 - September 15, 2009, 07:44 PM

A hero! Ha! I'm glad that I was able to help. I'm thinking they want your email and password so they can read your email list and show you who in your address book is on Twitter. I seem to recall doing that. I suppose I should be more suspicious of things like that.
I'd follow you but I don't know what your handle is. I'm @heatherayris. Let me know if you need any help with anything and I'll try to help out. I seem to like twitter a bit too much. Thanks for saying nice things about my book too. :moose
