How to Use Twitter

Establish Your Twitter Account – then Follow CAPS!

CAPS sends regular important information tidbits via Twitter, and you should receive them. If you’re not sure how to establish a Twitter account, here is a tutorial that should help:

Step 1: Go to


Step 2: Click Sign Up

In the top right corner of the page

Step 3: Fill out your name

Your full name

Your email address (please use a personal email address)

Your password (something easy to remember, but hard to guess)

Step 4: Choose your username

It has to be fewer than 15 characters long. If the name you’ve chosen is invalid or unavailable, you’ll be informed about it. Once you’ve chosen an acceptable name, you’ll see that it’s available for you.

Step 5: Decide whether you always want to be signed in to Twitter on the computer you’re using.

If it’s your own computer, this is a good option. If it’s a public computer, you should uncheck the box next to this option.

You can also choose whether or not you want Twitter to be tailored toward your recent website visits by leaving or removing the checkmark next to this option.

Step 6: Click Create My Account
