It's great to see so many of you answering the question "What's new?"
when you log in.
Did you know that your status updates
show up on the main page of MyEC? Answering the question "What's new?" is a great way to attract new visitors.
The question "What's new?"
is similar to Twitter's question "What's happening?".
Now you can set up your MyPage updates to go out as tweets. Join Twitter to connect these two accounts.
Here's how to connect MyEC to Twitter
1. Put a checkmark in the box with a t where you answer the question "What's new?" on your MyPage.
2. You will see this pop up box. Click connect.
You will have to allow the app to access your MyPage.
3. Enter your Twitter information. If you don't have a Twitter account yet, create one! Here
is an easy guide to Twitter for English learners.
4. Write your Status update. If the t box is checked your update will show up on MyEC AND on your Twitter account. (That's called "killing two birds with one stone.") If you don't want it to go to Twitter, uncheck the box. If your update is too long, you will see a minus beside a number.
You can shorten your update if it includes a link. You will see a message that says Shorten URL. Click on it!)
You can also use MyEC to send tweets that link to your blog! Check the box "Share this post on Twitter"
after you write your blog. This will bring many new people to your page!
