Got Twitter? We can help you post.

For those of you who haven’t used Twitter before, this might be the day to get started. C.A.R. is urging members to tweet some of our messages to make sure the legislature knows our members are educated in the legistation they write that affects the Real Estate Industry.


Twitter 4 



First, set up an account at
www.twitter.com and create a “handle.” For instance, C.A.R.’s Government Affairs Twitter handle is @cargovtaffairs. You can customize your page. And then you can have family, friends and clients “follow” you.


Next, you’re ready to “tweet.”

Messages, including spaces, must be no more than 140 characters long. See some of our sample messages today.


Twittersample 

Include hashtags (#). When you include a hashtag – for instance #CARLegDay – people looking for that subject can search all the tweets or messages with that hashtag. It helps messages to “go viral.”


Include a links when you can.
  You will notice that the URL used in our post is shorter than a regular link. This is because we can only use 140 characters.  You can use a free service called Bitly – www.bitly.com – to shorten the links. When you use your account later for other purposes, you can link to your listings, web site, etc.


Twitterbitly



Get a “handle” on things.
When you want someone specific to be aware of your message – like a legislator – include their “handle” in your message. For instance, if you wanted to thank Senator John Moorlach for meeting with you on Legislative Day, put -- @SenatorMoorlach – in your message.

Twitter 5


Finally, ask people who see your message to “retweet.”

This is easy. Just add RT to your message. When you want to “retweet” someone else’s message, just hover your cursor over the message and a blue menu of options will appear underneath the tweet. Just hit the “retweet” button.

So here’s what your tweet would look like:

#AB2502- Making CA Housing UNaffordable @ kevinmullin #NOAB2502 #CALeg http://bit.ly/1WY3AdF
