Due to the amount of walking and standing involved on Saturday, your blogger will not be able to bring along the ole laptop and live-blog the event in Washington. Thus, she will be providing updates on the website Twitter.
You don't have to have an account to follow KCC on Twitter. Just log on to http://www.twitter.com/katys and keep refreshing your screen. You can read anything your blogger is posting out.
The @name-of-user tweets are to a specific person, but you can still read and get in on the conversation.
The # signs are called hashtags on Twitter and they refer to a specific subject being discussed. Sometimes they are silly, such as #obamadoesNOTcare or #hrc , which refers to health care reform.
One of the more common is #tcot, which refers to a group known as Top Conservatives on Twitter, a group to which your blogger belongs. Another is #sgp, which is Smart Girl Politics, another of your blogger's favorites.
Have fun and set up your own acct by going to http://www.twitter.com. It's pretty self-explanatory. You came this far, didn't you?
You may write to this blogger directly by placing @katys at the beginning of your post. Remember, we have only 140 characters to say what we mean, so use all the abbreviations necessary.
Conservatives happen to rule Twitter. A recent study showed that we make up the majority of all Twitter users. If you can't be in DC, read all about it, on Twitter.
