Follow NAMI South Bay on Twitter

@NAMISouthBay

NAMI South Bay now has a Twitter account. If you are also on Twitter, please Follow us. NAMI South Bay tweets updates, news and announcements relevant to its mission.

Twitter has been around for a number of years and is one of the ten most visited websites, and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet.” It is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read “tweets,” which are text messages limited to 140 characters.

Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. As a social network, Twitter revolves around the principle of followers. When you choose to follow another Twitter user (like NAMI South Bay), that user’s tweets appear in reverse chronological order on your main Twitter page. If you follow 20 people, you’ll see a mix of tweets scrolling down the page: updates, new links, music recommendations, even musings on the future of education.
