My First Foray Into Twitter
Well when Twitter first came out I was not the least bit interested.

But years later, as it became a platform for sweeps, I did pay attention. I eventually did get a facebook page for sweeping, so why not twitter?
I finally decided the next time there is a really good prize I really want I will sign up. (that's kinda how it happened for FB). I was a bit leery though because of some of the troubles I saw members here discuss.

Well, today was the day. I went to sign up. Twitter asked for my email. I entered my special sweepster email, of course. Then it asked for my password. It would appear I already have a Twitter account.My thought was Whaa? then wow, musta been a wild weekend. So I try a couple possible passwords. none were correct, so I asked for password reset through my sweepster email. When I got the email twitter sent, it told me my user name is @meaghervest. Don't think so. Told me to click here if that info is incorrect. So I did. After that I clicked on this @ person's name and a page came up with this account is cancelled or something like that.

So it will be awhile before I try Twitter again.

It's a cesspool.

I have someone who used my survey email to open a twitter account.. I can't get twitter to close it out because they say it's not my twitter email address... I tried over and over and can't do anything... the email I get to verify the account comes in another language so I don't know if I should click on any of the links directly from the email.

Years ago when I first started Twitter I was told that I needed a lot of followers to win something. I didn't worry about it and won a couple of times. Now my follower base has tripled and I enter sometimes 20 different sweeps a day and have won nada. So I don't think I'd stress too much about it.
