    Does everything from the web version get duplicated there?

    So this site is subordinate to a tweet?

    Sorry, but just cannot see the point of Tweets that are apparently not worth putting on the site

    I tweet links to existing posts so as to extend the possibility of reaching more people. That way, a query might be seen by someone who would not otherwise find the forum. :)

    Sorry, I seem to have misunderstood. (I admit I am not a user of Twitter). I thought from your earlier reply that information that was given on Twitter was not given on the site. I apologise for my misunderstanding

    I have a Twitter account but I'm finding that I don't use the site much these days - there are more and more nasty and stupid people on there. A few minutes' reading could send my blood pressure sky-high! I agree Tweeting could be a way for more people to find this forum, but I think I'll keep coming straight here ;)

    At one time I was considering a Twitter account but having seen some of the nasty Twitters by moronic twits I decided to give it a miss, I don't think I need it anyway, Facebook seems to give me all I need and more.

    I can't keep up with all the genealogy sites I belong to, so I sure don't have time to tweet. I really am waiting for tweet tweets from Spring birds, though!!

    Like Facebook, I’ve never given either a passing thought. Well, I did, fleetingly with Facebook but now, nuh.

    I only do Facebook to keep up with family overseas. They are useless at keeping in touch in other ways.:rolleyes::D

    Same here, Facebook enables me to keep in touch with family abroad and of course my lovely genie friends from here

    Facebook has also enabled me to get birth, marriage and death dates of cousins children. I know the years they are born but not the date. Easy to find date when you visit their page, just look for all the happy birthdays :)
