To sign up for a Twitter account go to the Twitter homepage and the orange signup button. Remember to choose a username that is unique but not too long as that may restrict your tweet length. Start to follow some people and see how you get on. If AM staff (or anyone else for that matter) has questions please contact me, Russ or Brooke.
