If you don’t have a Twitter account, it’s easy. Just go to www.twitter.com and create an account, all you need is an email address. You can check tweets on your computer, on your smartphone, on your tablet – whatever. You can then follow people who interest you, see who they follow or who follows them, block people you don’t want bothering you, and post your occasional thought.
