Signing up for Twitter
The first thing that you have to do is make your way over to the Twitter site and sign up for an account. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, or who need an extra bit of security, these directions will help you to complete the sign up process without any fuss. On the whole, this process is relatively simple so you should not encounter any major issues:
1. Open your web browser (or a new tab if you are reading this) and make your way to www.twitter.com.
2. Once you are on the main page, click on the yellow button with the words "sign up new."
3. Fill in the requested information.This consists of your full name (in one field), a user name, a password and your email address.
4. Answer the question and click on the button that is labeled "create my account."
5. When the email arrives, confirm your account.
Now that you have your account all set up and ready to go, it is time to sign in to your account.You can do this on the home page with either your username or your email address and your password. Once you have signed in to your account, it is time to set up your user profile.
Why should I bother to set up a profile?
A user profile lends credibility to your account. It also gives a potential follower a chance to get to know you, if only a little bit. It entices a reader into following you. A bare bones profile is one with very few followers, be sure of that.
