You can also connect with your email provider and connect with friends who may be on Twitter. Twitter doesn’t store or save this information.

It’s important to fill these out as accurately as you feel comfortable with, so that other users who are either searching for you or who discover you will see quickly who you are, and what you’re about. You should also use a picture that’s you, a close approximation of you, or is otherwise distinctly recognizable as you. 6. Searching and saving If there here's a particular topic you’re interested in, Twitter allows you to search for that word (or words), and save the searches to your account. This is a good way to monitor tweets mentioning your organization’s name, topics in the kind of work that you do, or other things that interest you. Way up top, there’s a grey box with a magnifying glass next to it. Enter the term you’re searching for, and click the magnifying glass. You’ll be given a screen of search results: You can then save the search to your account, so you don’t have to keep reentering it every time you want to look, by clicking the “Save this search” button at the top of the search results.
