Twitter has become one of the fastest growing social media sites. Your best friend, your neighbor, co-worker, newspapers, magazines and just about every celebrity tweets something daily. If you’re a foodie, or just a lover of food, Twitter offers unique access to countless food writers in the area. Unlike Facebook, Twitter requires you to express yourself in 160 words or less. Once you start following people, Twitter will suggest more for you to follow. Any time you log in, your home page will fill up with your followers’ Twitter status updates and what others are saying about them. Retweet what others post and post anytime you wish.
