Yes – You do need a Twitter account…

Twitter is not just another social media platform, it is a quick and simple source for breaking news.

The free service is easy to set up, and viewable on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Twitter Feeds

Posts are referred to as tweets, and limited to 140 characters.  This makes the service easier to browse than Facebook, and without the drama often found on other media services.  Some tweets may contain photos, or links to websites for more information.

Use Twitter to “follow” your favorite celebrity, sports team, politician, company, or national and local news sources.

When away from your desktop computer, use the Twitter App on your smartphone for news while on the go.

While you will have the ability to send out tweets, it is by no means necessary.  You can use Twitter simply to monitor

  • current news events throughout the world
  • new product announcements and special sales from retail stores
  • weather alerts
  • road closures and traffic information
  • and so much more…

Quick, easy and free to use.
