Like many other blogs, I have finally taken the plunge and started giving short, quick updates on Twitter. You can sign up to follow me or see what I have been rambling about at Own The Dollar’s page on Twitter.
So, what is Twitter? Twitter is a micro-blogging website where bloggers and anyone else for that matter can send their friends and followers updates, let them know when new blog articles have been posted, give tips, provide fast time sensitive ideas, etc. Also, if you like a specific entry, you can usually find more information about it through links right inside the message.
Why should you follow me? On Twitter I post unique money saving tips, finance-related news, updates to OwnTheDollar.com, and random thoughts. It is basically anything that is too small or timely that will not fit into a full post.
What else is on Twitter? You can find a lot of great personal finance, news, editorials, and other useful finance related information on Twitter, and you can actually learn a lot from it. Some great ideas, thoughts, and tips that have recently been posted include:
- Why are people mocking a $13/week tax break when people went nuts for last year’s $600 stimulus check (which was $11.58/week)?
- How To Recession-Proof Your Debt Snowball Plan: http://tinyurl.com/c2mupy
- If your kids are like mine and are pining for the new High School Musical 3 movie, here’s a coupon: http://tinyurl.com/c6w2yn
Who do I follow? I follow some of my favorite personal finance bloggers who also tweet (the verb for using Twitter). I follow Patrick from Cash Money Life, J from Budgets Are Sexy, Jim from Bargaineering, and several others.
To see those guys’ full twitter pages or to follow them, just click on the links above. I also recommend checking out their personal finance / money blogs which are also great: Cash Money Life, Budgets Are Sexy, and Bargaineering.
For those of you who are also a little tech savvy, you can receive Own The Dollar’s Twitter updates via RSS feed right into your feed reader. Hope you enjoy.
