The Twitter Stream 4

It is Work Experience Week at the Twitter Stream and both the Tweet family and the Promoted family have gone to show their tweetlets what work at the Twitter Stream entails.

The Twitter birds are giving demonstrations of the processes used for registering new accounts and enabling Follow/Block/Report for Spam. One demonstration took the form of a skit titled Managing Salacious Bird.

There were cheers and whistles as a blue footed booby wearing fishnet stockings and far too much make up teetered up to a large screen and entered her details. She then created her profile using the Twitter handle @TootsieBoobytweet

A group of Iconic Twitter Birds demonstrated How to Enable the Follow.

Salacious Bird selected several she would like to follow herself and proceeded to send the same website link to each one.

The narrator commented that the link she was sending could be risky to follow and could lead to an unsuitable site and suggested that many would not want to follow @TootsieBoobytweet and would want to Block her.
There was a discussion about cyber safety while the Karate Tweets showed methods for Blocking (and several other moves)

It became clear that @TootsieBoobytweet was sending links to the same unsavoury site to many people.
The narrator commented that @TootsieBoobytweet should be reported for spam and a police consultant showed how to manage a Report for Spam.

As Retweet watched the demonstrations it reinforced for her the importance of teaching the wise use of Twitter, maintaining cyber safety and having good netiquette and manners.

Tweetelle tugged on Retweet’s wingtip. “What does salacious mean?” she asked.

“We’ll talk about it when we get home!” Retweet replied.
