My friend Brandon owner of www.vBulletinSetup.com turned me on to Twitter several months ago. He is always looking for ways to promote sites on the internet. I had owned a website that Brandon helped me on that was trucker related, also my blog which you are reading now that we moved from blogspot.com that I had, had for a long time. So I thought what the hell, I would join and see what it was all about. I joined as @arealredneck, the same username I had used on several sites across the internet. A couple of months went by I had a few followers nothing to brag about, as I wasn’t really sure what it was all about yet anyway. I hadn’t really tweeted about anything anyway, just mainly about an online game I had been playing for a few months. I had followed a few truck drivers on twitter, one was @TerenceSmelser he seemed alright to me. He would post a lot of tweets about the government that I felt the same way about. He also had a bunch following him, so I figured he had been around for a while, and he followed me back. So I followed a bunch of his followers and most followed me back as well.
I am not sure if he and @Truckerdesiree had been having their feud at this time or not, but I started following her as well. Anyway, I started seeing an opportunity to use my blog on twitter, as many do. WordPress makes plug-ins to allow you to post to your blog that will tweet your post onto twitter. My blog was meant to help truck drivers find the news quickly about their industry, WITHOUT having to take the time to have to search all over the internet for it. Yes, I copy and paste a lot of “my post”, but I give credit to the original site as well. But I also write a LOT of my own post as well. » Read more: Twitter and Trucking and Fighting
