Rather ask you guys who have been using twitter for years following fighters than pretending that I know how to use it....
Create an account like Facebook. Search for people you want to read posts from, on the top right of the screen, and click "Follow" next to their name. When you're logged in to Twitter.com, the Twitter
url will automatically bring you to your page. On the page, every time someone that you're following posts something, it will be on that page, in order of time it was posted. If you follow enough people, or certain people, you'll do a lot of scrolling, because you'll be shocked at how much people post (especially hot chics who can't help but post 30 times a day; with cleavage shots & bikini pics
). From there the basics are the "@" symbol is followed by the person's user name (UFC's twitter is @ufc as an example), and "#" means a specific topic (could be something as stupid as #dranktoomuchshittonight). So if you wanted to contact someone, you'd post something like "@danawhite Why are you so bald?", similar to simply posting a message on Dana White's Facebook page (if he has one). Or with the hash tag, it'd be something like "I feel like shit this morning #neverdrinkingagain".
As for Tumblr, it's basically a blog with an image for each post. Also, in the basic sense, it is just a blog site, that's free to use, and houses millions of blogs on one site.
“You know what our policy is? You can tweet in between rounds if you can pull that off.
Wonder who's going to be the first fighter in the UFC to do this. I'd have to be a serious fan favorite, or everyone would be pissed and call it disrespect for their opponent. It'd be freaking awesome.
