Twitter on the daySeptember 5, 2011
If you want to keep in contact with everyone else on the day, then Twitter is a really useful resource for you.
Don’t worry if even the word Twitter scares you away — it is just a website where people can post short messages. Here is a step-by-step walkthrough to using Twitter to keep up-to-date!
If you have a smartphone
If you have a Twitter account already: keep your eye on the #StopDSEI hashtag.
If you do not have a Twitter account: go to twitter.com and search for “stopdsei” to see what people are saying
If you do not have a smartphone
If you do not have a Twitter account: simply text the words “Follow StopDSEI” to 86444 (without the quotation marks).
- If you want to stop the texts for whatever reason, text STOP to the same number; to start them again, text ON.
- This method will send out at most five updates every 30 minutes to stop you getting flooded with texts.
- Depending on your phone plan, this may or may not cost you money – see this Twitter help page for more info.
- For more information about the text commands you can send, see this Twitter page (ignore that they say to text 40404 as that’s for the USA).
