How to Twitter 101.

Via on Feb 26, 2011

elephantjournal.com editor Waylon Lewis, twitter #1 in US #green 2010, teaches tweetdeck. Video.

Waylon Lewis, twitter.com/elephantjournal and twitter.com/waylonlewis, has been named most popular green tweeter in the US Shorty Awards two years running. But, sick and tired of explaining how twitter works to friends, he finally made this video with the help of his buddy Mathew Gerson of Sir Richard’s in LA.

Filmed in Venice, California, by my friend Mathew Gerson of Sir Richard’s Condoms—a hip, uplifted company aiming to replace the embarrassment that comes with buying condoms with pride in doing the right thing, targeting gay and female audience instead of just “guys.” Best of all, it donates a condom for every condom you purchase.

    Thanks for this Waylon! I've been off Twitter for a while for the most part, and this video got me setting up TweetDeck in a way that makes it more manageable and might keep me interested. It's also really cool that you can add feeds for FB, LinkedIn, etc. : )
