We’re halfway through the Ten Days of Twitter – I’m really glad so many of you have joined us, and hope you’re finding it useful and fun! Thanks for all your participation. I’ve made several new acquaintances on Twitter, and will be following you for all your updates and information!
I’ve been curating the week’s tweets as we went along, and created this overview of the first five days of Twitter. We’ll find out how to do this later next week. For now, click on the link to view the conversations and discussions, and see quite how far we’ve come together!

If you’re following along but haven’t tweeted yet, or if you’ve only just found the programme, it’s not too late to join us! Send me a message as in Day 2 with my name @markwarnes2 and the hashtag #ARU10DoT, and I’ll add you to the list of participants on Twitter that we can all view (see Day 3), to see who else is participating.
Don’t forget to complete all the daily tasks if you want to qualify for a Digital Badge!
Have a great weekend, keep tweeting, and I’ll see you on Monday for Day 6!
It would appear that it remains necessary to put a ‘.’ before the @name in tweets that begin with a username, because:
When a Tweet starts with a @username, the only users who will see it in their timeline (other than the sender and the recipient) are those who follow both the sender and the recipient. (Twitter https://support.twitter.com/articles/14023#)
My apologies for not checking this sooner and making it clear yesterday!
