Being Part of a Twibe

No, I am not doing my best Elmer Fudd imitation. That's really what it is called when you combine Twitter + Tribe = Twibe.

I'm doing my best to figure out what the heck it all means, but so far what I've gathered is
a twibe is a group of Twitter users interested in a common topic who would like to be able to communicate with each other.

Each Twibe founder creates a hashtag (# followed by a tag/keyword) that each Twibe groups' members use in their posts. This way, you can search through the twibes by the hashtag/tags to find your Twibe member's posts.

To tweet with your Twibe members, they have to be followers of you. Eventually, Twibe will have a FOLLOW ALL option.

Also, your tweets don't show up right away IF you are not posting from the Twibe site. Don't fret...they aren't posted in real time, but should eventually show up. Don't forget those tags though.

There is SO much more information about Twibe on the Twibe site. This is just a brief run-down. If you have any tips or suggestions that you've found useful, please feel free to leave a comment here. THANKS!
