Go Tweet Yourself

June 10, 2010

It's high time to start tweeting your life away. And no people, we're not suggesting that you use it to tell the world wide web what you're eating for lunch...
Go Tweet Yourself

Honestly, we're a little sick of people talking about Twitter who know nothing about it and have never used it. Think of Twitter not as a way to update people on every aspect of your life, but instead as a great tool for hearing things first and discovering new things – you just have to follow the right people (like us @StyledOn).

First thing you'll need to do is sign up for a Twitter account (which requires a name, username, password and email address). Add a profile pic, etc and then begin following people, join in the conversations, and tweet whatever you want. For an easy-to-understand guide to tweeting, we suggest you check out CNET's Newbie's guide to Twitter and then follow the twitter feeds below...

The Must Reads:
@womensweardaily - The tweets of the Fashion Bible, WWD. If you love fashion and what the latest, this should be your first follow.
@themoment - NYT T Magazine. 'nuff said.
@cutblog - New York Magazine's The Cut blog's tweets. Lots of fashion, gossip, entertainment.
@THELOVEMAGAZINE - Because we love LOVE and you will too.

Fashion-Focused Sites to Follow:
@rackedny - All the sample sale and shopping information you'll ever need.
@refinery29 - Seriously, refinery29 is one of our favorite sites around. And they hold great contests, which you'll know about if you follow them.
