How to Tweet Your Way to Genealogy Research Success
Social networking sites have made it easier for everyone to connect with people, organizations and businesses all over the world with just a few simple clicks. Social media can be especially helpful for those who are researching their family history. If you’re looking for a great place to connect with genealogists and family historians online, Twitter is a wonderful social tool to do just that — and more!
Twitter is a free-to-use social networking service that enables you and others to send and read short messages (or tweets). And thanks to Twitter’s great mobile app, you can tweet while on the go.
While a simple 140-character tweet may not look like it could do much to help you, it can actually offer up some big genealogy knowledge if used correctly. Plus, once you get to tweeting regularly, the social network could even help you uncover long lost ancestors to add to your family tree.
