The Military Community On Twitter

(Nov. 11, 2009) With the creation of twitter lists, we can now make it easier to connect with our military community on twitter. Here's how to get listed:

Leave you comment with your twitter name and which category you should be listed in.

(May 31, 2009) This wonderful list is growing at a rapid rate, which is a good thing! Please check to see if you're on the list and if you're following these great folks on twitter. Help spread the word by sharing this with everyone you know on twitter so we can all continue to connect and support one another. Be sure to bookmark this post so you can check back to see how it grows. Don't forget to follow us too! @MailOurMilitary and @eMOMS .

(April 10th) There are lists for moms and lists for dads but at eMail Our Military (eMOM) we're looking to create the ultimate list of military moms, dads, spouses, service members, etc. for you to follow and connect with on twitter.

If you fall into one of these categories leave a comment with your @name and the category we should list you under and we'll add you! We'll update the list as information comes in and publish it here so we can all connect, share resources and support each other. As our list grows we'll may break the categories down into separate posts for you.

Dayngr said...

What better way to support our troops than to communicate with them on a daily basis and let them know how much they are appreciated. Please take a moment to connect with the folks listed and let them know how much they are appreciated. Maybe you'll find someone you have something in common with and make a friend for life. Of course, if you have a military connection too, add your name to the list.
