Twitter is the most popular "short message"/"microblogging" social medium. It provides users a platform through which they can publish 140-character “Tweets” for the entire “Twitterverse” to see. Users can post unique messages, as well as links to photos, videos, other websites, etc. Users can engage in activities such as sending Direct Messages to one another, Tweeting publicly at other Twitter users, ReTweeting messages posted by others, or commenting on popular topics utilizing hashtags (#).
- Many of these strategies are similar to those previously listed regarding Facebook and other interactive networking sites.
- Create original Tweets that feature individuals with disabilities and/or focus on some aspect of the disability community.
- When ReTweeting, ensure some ReTweets feature individuals with disabilities and/or focus on some aspect of the disability community.
- If utilizing hashtags (#) in posts, ensure that some of those hashtags and/or some of the larger campaigns they represent highlight individuals with disabilities and/or some aspect of the disability community.
- When posting non-original, non-Twitter content (websites, links, videos, pictures, etc.), ensure that some of this content features individuals with disabilities and/or is related to some aspect of the disability community.
