Create a Twitter account in order to easily keep up with news and information that's important to your life and your family. Twitter is a free social microblogging service that lets you connect with friends, colleagues and favorite media outlets, such as About.com, one of the oldest and most comprehensive sites on the Internet.
For example, you'll find me at my Twitter account @KatherineLewis. I tweet about parenting, work-life issues and developments of interest to working moms. I also post links to my blog and articles that I think you'll find interesting. And you'll also notice me tweeting with other bloggers and writers who cover work-life topics.
Browse this list of Twitter account names for the About.com Parenting Guides to get you started on Twitter. You can find the Twitter accounts for About.com Guides writing about other topics on this comprehensive list from Daniel Nations, our Guide to Web Trends.
