Two Weeks of Tweets

Guest post by Aaron Harned

Over the last few weeks I have started to apply myself to learn about and participate in social media.

After months of prodding from my girlfriend, I signed up for a Twitter account.

Ever since my first tweet it has been amazing to me how involved agriculturalists are in promoting all of agriculture on the internet.

It has been a pleasure for me to learn so much in just two weeks from my tweeps.

The reason I started tweeting was to find more news stories about agriculture, but I have found that the friendships that I have already established will prove to be beneficial to me in the future.

I now know that I can look for advice from these people and be flooded with links and resources about agriculture and controversial issues.

I am writing this post is to encourage anyone who does not have Twitter to not hesitate and sign up for a Twitter account.

It is a little overwhelming at first but just sit back and watch for a little look at the other more experienced Twitter users show you the ropes.

I have found that my opinion matters to these people simply because I am as passionate about agriculture as they are.

All and all what I am trying to say is go to twitter.com, put in your info and join the fun. It is not only a great way to keep up with ag topics but it is also a great chance to network and meet other tweeps who care as much about #ag, #farm, #beef, or #pork as you do.
