Twitter As a Resource

I'm kind of a late bloomer when it comes to Twitter, although I've had an account for a few years now. I've mostly used it to interact with businesses that post discounts and other promotions, but I'd go months without checking my account and at one point was debating just closing it down.

However, my interest in Twitter has grown quite a bit recently as I have done more exploring on the site. One thing I learned recently is that people have bead giveaways via Twitter. I entered one myself, the rules of which required only that I retweet the post.

I'm sure that there is a whole beading community on Twitter isn't news to most readers of this blog, and I know that my chances of winning the contest are pretty slim, but I'm very excited to see what else -- bead related and not bead related -- there is out there.

The contest I entered will be closed by the time this posts, but I found another via Twitter. To enter the contest, though, you must connect to Facebo…
