Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables users to send short text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length to other users. Its a popular way to keep in touch with friends and family and has previously been used as an emergency information tool. The service is free to use over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

Twitter is a great way to stay informed and aware of alerts. Contact our HelpDesk if you have any further questions about Twitter.
