Welcome back to the blog. Today we are going to go through the steps on setting up a Twitter account.
Step one: Go to http://www.twitter.com You should see something like the above image. Put in your Name, Email and a password. Please note that you should have a different password for any and all different accounts that you have. In other words this should not be your email password or Facebook password. Use a combination of upper and lowercase and numbers for a strong password.
After you fill out the info, click sign up.
If all goes well, you should see a screen like above. Here you will enter your desired username. Usernames have to be 15 characters or less. Remember your branding and try to come up with a username that is the same as your shop name or at least close.
If the username you want is unavailable it will show and you'll have to enter a different username. You may want to break up words by using capital letters like this: MarketMyShop Though the usernames are not case sensitive it helps for people to read your username easier. It can also help search engines to parse the words easier.
Explore all of the things that you can do. Fill out as much information as you can. Don't start tweeting yet, because no one is following you yet. Tomorrow we will go into how to get people to follow you. In the meantime just explore. Twitter will probably give you a list of celebrities to follow. Follow whoever you like.
That is it for today. See you all back here tomorrow!
