1. Comment: Move At Twitter Speed - Being part of a fast-paced

generation, where time is essential and something is happening

every second, can be difficult to keep up with. There's a place

with millions of people where you can receive the latest events,

news, have direct access to media members, public officials,

attorneys, law firms, and other internet users who want to

communicate with you. This place is Twitter; its users see their

popularity increase with each mention and new follower. By using

140 character messages, hash tags, retweets and direct messages

you'll be able to connect with potential customers, businesses,

friends and reconnect with old ones. Twitter gets you on search

engines, group similar tweets together and be listed among other

well-known Twitter users. The newsfeed is accessible either on

your mobile device or computer and the codes are available for

your website. If you've ever wondered how to have access to all

these benefits, then all you have to do is join Twitter and when

you do, don't hesitate to follow us @ILWCOM.
