rgz LIVE! Twitter Party tonight with Elizabeth Scott!

Stop by twitter for a chat with Elizabeth Scott, author of THE UNWRITTEN RULE! Live chat at 6pm PST/9pm EST - see you there for our first ever rgz twitter chat! (Elizabeth Scott is on twitter as escottwrites).

Don't have a Twitter account? It's fast and easy to set one up!

At http://twitter.com, just click on the yellow "Give it a try" button to get started. All you will need is your name, a unique user name, and an email address. Add a password, and you're now on Twitter!

Search for readergirlz to begin following us and our tweets.

If you want others to see your posts ("tweets") during the chat, make sure the "Protect my tweets" box is not checked on the Accounts tab. If you want to get fancy, you can add a picture and customize your page in the Design tab.

Protect your privacy! No one can see your email address on twitter, but it's a good idea to choose a user name that doesn't give away your real name or location (especially if you are not an adult).

To join the Elizabeth Scott chat:

Click on the "Home" page and enter #rgz in the Search box. Our chat will come up, and you can jump right in! Be sure to include #rgz in your chat posts so that everyone else can see them and respond.

We'll see you there tonight!

Nothing has motivated me to join Twitter...until now. Only for you, readergirlz, only for you. I go there grumbling, but also looking forward to an overdue schmoozefest with you all.

Thanks for the tutorial.
