Hey guys,I know a couple of you are Twitterbug`s, but wondered how many others are here and tweet on a daily basis. Do you use it to discuss Real Estate Investing?


If so, feel free to mention #REIN


I don`t expect a huge response, but for those of us who use the technology we might as well commence our #REIN
takeover





Kind regards,

Chris

Hey Chris, I`m on Twitter!

I`m "Carla Johnson."

For those new to Twitter, Twitter is a fairly simple site that helps people stay connected. It is a lot less work to manage than Facebook & I am on both. The # sign is a hashtag. I`m still learning the site, but using it helps us find each other if we opt in to that feature.

Oops, I guess an explanation for those who aren`t up to speed on it. Twitter - It`s micro-blogging! You have 140 characters per post, it`s an extremely active community of posters who update their daily activities. Generally when people get started they mention anything they`re doing. Eg.

"I wonder why Save-On Foods carrots are yellow!" or
"This porridge is excellent!"


but as you `mature` on the site, you realize how powerful it can be when connecting people by the use of #hashtags (hashtags allow users to add filters which they can monitor) and by prefixing usernames with @at_signs (which direct responses specifically to the user)

It`s not for everyone, and I`m certain that most people on here are happy to stay away, but us techno-geeks are always looking for new ways to communicate so I wanted to mention it and see what kind of a following we have in the community.

I`ve just signed up today - a real newbie.

I`m going to ping a couple of you to see how this thing works, if that`s OK.

PS - I still don`t get the hashmarks. Would I enter in #REIN in the find people search bar?

PSS - I think my name is @Stephen_White
( I think that`s how you reference me )

If someone could give it a try, that would be cool.

Steve

It`s been a while since I updated the Unofficial REIN Twitter Directory, so let`s get things rolling again.

Since the original version we`ve seen a bunch of REIN staff join (including Don, Russell and Patrick), several regular presenters and a lot more members. There`s a form on the page you can use and I`ll add you to the list.

I`m also creating some Twitter lists for the new tweets out there to follow some classy and interesting folks. I`m there too.

Chris, this is another great tool for our REIN members and I really appreciate you taking initiative on something like this. Let`s see if we can can get people excited about Twitter because aside from allowing people to get great content out to the masses, it`s going to allow us to build mini-relationships external to the myREINspace forums.

Be sure to follow @REINCANADA for insights into real estate and to stay up to the minute on REIN events and deals.

Follow @DonRCampbell for the direct link to Canada`s leading Real Estate expert.

Get out there and get tweeting! And be sure to follow all the members listed in Chris` directory...
