Tweet from your iPhone

OK, I’m on a Twitter streak. I like Twitter because the tweets are short and sweet. The format helps me edit my thoughts and focus on what’s important, which is a great lesson for all writers!

To activate Twitter text messaging, download the Twitter mobile app for your iPhone, Android, Blackberry or Windows Phone 7. Click the “edit” tab on your Twitter profile page, which is in the upper right-hand corner. That will bring up the “Mobile” tab that opens the dialogue box, which will allow you to enter your cell phone number.

You can send your first tweet after you receive a confirmation message on your phone. Now you can tweet from any location!

Write soon,


  1. So, that explains it. I downloaded the app and couldn't figure out how to tweet from my phone. Thanks, Mary.

  2. Mary--I'm afraid I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to Facebook, and I have used Twitter in the past (from my computer) but I was discouraged by some of the inane things people wrote about--they're eating a sandwich, they polished their toenails, and so on. However, I DO know writers can use it to their advantage...I just haven't gotten on the bandwagon yet.

    Thanks for simplying things in a very user-friendly manner. If I ever want to use Twitter from my phone, I know how to do it...

  3. I'm not much on using Twitter and usually only get on Facebook to see what everyone else is doing. Boring me.

  4. One thing I like about Twitter is that I can find a lot of information quickly by using the hashtags. So I can find authors or publishers or people tweeting about writing, which I enjoy.
