Sprite’s Site has a close connection with the social media Twitter and the iconic Twitter birds.
My Twitter handle is @jofrei
Naturally I use Twitter to receive and share information, to socialise, give and receive encouragement and to announce my blog posts.
I enjoy participating in Twitter chats particularly #gtchat and many of the posts on Sprite’s Site are related to #gtchat

The Twitter Birds are also characters on Spite’s Site
The Twitter bird images were adapted from birds in a set of free Twitter Bird icons available at http://www.productivedreams.com/free-twitter-bird-icon-set/
The Twitter birds play an active part in the blog by bringing links of interesting websites and holding their own events such as weddings https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/wedding-album/
going A-MAY-ing https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/a-may-ing/
and participating in creating challenges https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/creating-challenge/
Twitter Bird Bowers have been set up on Sprite’s Site to house the 100 plus musicians, poets, scientists and pirates
And during the 2012 Olympics Un-Olympics Bowers were also added to Sprite’s Site https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/un-olympics-bower/
We witnessed the wedding of Tweet and Retweet and are now following the story of The Tweet family https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/tweet-family/ and their gifted Tweetlets, Tweetil and Tweetelle, and their Great Aunt Hashtag.
The stories have covered subjects such as parenting, giftedness issues, choosing schools, homeschooling and consultations with the Psych-Owl-Ogist https://spritessite.wordpress.com/tag/psych-owl-ogist/
