How do you include your twitter name in your profile? Do you just put it somewhere in the bio box like:

Twitter: @_richardg

Or, with a link:

Twitter: @_richardg

    Each of those formats will work. Oct 18, 2011 at 13:25

A question, not a concern: why does it have to be Twitter? Why not other social media also, e.g. people's blogs, Facebook status, etc.?

  • Twitter is involved here because it is easily trackable. Future contests may employ other means of sharing. Oct 18, 2011 at 13:24
