The district's new, official Twitter feed -- @WFISD schools -- will connect you to timely news updates from the Wichita Falls Independent School District.
Not familiar with Twitter? Twitter is simply an information network. It's an easy way to get up-to-the-minute messages from us and from all the people and organizations you like. Nothing is long or boring. Each message, called a "tweet," is no longer than 140 characters -- not much longer than this sentence. Twitter includes photos, too.
Once you sign up for a Twitter account, you can search its vast network for the people and organizations you want to follow. Then, your streaming Twitter feed becomes like a newspaper with headlines and photos that target the topics and people you enjoy most.
You'll automatically get your customized news in short, bite-sized blurbs -- in real time. Faster than any newspaper. And not limited to any time slot, like a TV news program.
Every time you log onto Twitter, you'll scroll through a new, customized feed of up-to-the-minute information.
People you follow may also retweet important comments from their own Twitter feeds, exposing you to an even broader range of news. The beauty of Twitter is being able to stay current on the specific topics and people you care most about.
