    After years of hearing about it, I finally created an account in Twitter. I actually never even visited it. But now, I am a tweeter, twiterer, or whatever they are called (though now I guess it's "we").
    Anyway, now I just need some black oriented sites & people to keep up with. I am hoping that you all can direct me in the right direction, and can offer me some places/people of black interest.

    Twitter's search function isn't too bad. If you already know some names/organizations, they might already be on there.

    I tweet..what you should do is follow me..then click on people I follow..then you can click on who they follow if you like. That is how I got started by following a friends list. Then your time line will flow. I find my time line flows fast when somthing is going on and if you start tweeting to someone (like me for example) you can miss the tweet if you arent able to scroll back and forth. I tweet about once or twice a week. Well..I should say it depends on whats going on. Let me know if you need help. Im Linda Chavis on twitter.

    I forgot something

    In order to send me a direct message we have to be following each other. So once you follow me and I then follow you, if you need help you can direct message me. What is your twitter name, cause I dont accept all followers LOL

    I'm "Ltcmdr49022". And you'll have to excuse me, but my understanding of Twitter and its terms are all still new to me. I havn't even begun to understand what a time line is. As I said, I just joined it a couple days ago.
    As for others, I only have one follower so far, from blackberry messenger. I am following sites like CNN, NBC, and news sites like that. I am hoping to now follow some black oriented sites, but don't have much of an idea how to find them.
    I will add (follow) you. Do I just add a "@" in front of your screen name you use here?

    If I told you I did, I'd grow about 8 extra inches to my nose. I'm even clueless to most of the terms used in it. But the one thing I have prided myself on is my wanting to learn something new everyday. Granted, if I was 30 years younger it might be a bit more easier.
    So I'm off and running, or should I say "tweeting"?

    I hope you know the feds watch that site along with facebook and myspace...how do I know? because when the news always says "such and such twitting this" such and such had this on their facebook page, the FEDS are watching it.

    I think you can find somewhere else to network with people with similar interest
