Last week I talked about all the different ways you can live the Disney Driven Life on Facebook. This week, I’d like to expand that communication to Twitter. Twitter is also a social networking site, but it focuses more on real time updates, whereas Facebook focuses more on profiles. To join, simply visit twitter.com and click “sign up.”
Once you’ve created an account, you can utilize the two main functions of Twitter: writing updates (also known as tweeting) and “following” other Twitter users. To follow users, simply visit their account pages and click “Follow” right underneath their usernames. There are tons of Disney fans on Twitter, and they always have interesting things to say. Some people even tweet from the Disney parks!
To be more connected to the Disney Driven Life community, there are two Twitter accounts you can follow. One is the @NDM_1 account (@ is the symbol used in tweets when you want to “mention” another Twitter user). This is the account of our fearless Disney Driven Life leader, JL. She tweets about living the Disney Driven Life as a Neurotic Disney Mom, and she’s awesome to follow.
The second Disney Driven Life account to follow is @DisDrivenLife. This is the official Twitter account of the DDL website. This account typically tweets about people recently counted as Neurotic Disney People as well as new blog posts and other blog business. Here you can also find Twitter lists of the various Neurotic Disney People. A Twitter list is a way to categorize Twitter users, so, for example, following the Neurotic Disney Individual list will allow you to see tweets from everyone in that list. This is a great way to find new members of the Disney Driven Life community to communicate with.
Like Facebook, Twitter is another great way to connect with the Disney Driven Life community. Twitter is even more communication-based than Facebook, and it’s a whole lot of fun. Plus if you’re counted as a Neurotic Disney Person, your Twitter name can be added to the roster. I hope you join the conversation, and get out there and start tweeting! Twitter is based on participation, so it’s up to all of you to make it successful!
