Things to Keep in Mind

1. Twitter is public. Be smart about what you say and who you follow.
2. Twitter is blocked at school. You must bypass the content filter to get to twitter. You can do that by going here and logging in.
3. Twitter is here when you have time. It's not something you should feel overwhelmed by.
4. Start small. Sign up and follow just a few people.
5. If you do tweet add #WJHSTweets so we can start the conversation in our building.
