Let me know if you have any issues with Twitter. Some of you may find that your tweets don’t show up when you search our hashtag #hongcomics. This could be for a number of reasons (check out “Help with Twitter search”). For some of you, it’s probably because your account is brand new and doesn’t have a ton of activity yet, so Twitter doesn’t know you’re a legit account. Just keep tweeting, re-tweeting, mentioning and responding to other Twitter users. If you follow Twitter Search rules and restrictions, your tweets will eventually start showing up in searches.

You should also try the following:

  • Make sure you confirmed the email address connected to your Twitter account.
  • Complete your profile, with a full name, bio, photo, etc.
  • Go to Settings > Security and privacy > Tweet privacy, and make sure “Protect my Tweets” is unchecked.
  • Contact Twitter directly for help.

In the meantime, one way I’ll keep track of all your tweets will be to add you all to this Twitter list for our class. I recommend you subscribe!
