Do You Know About #MilitaryMon?

If you are on Twitter chances are, you know about #MilitaryMon. If not then I am here to explain it to you. First for those of you who do not Tweet here is a little review of just what Twitter is and how it is used.

Twitter is a social networking microblog. Tweeters, the people using Twitter post messages that are not over 140 characters long called Tweets. Tweeters post everything from news stories, breaking news and even amber alerts. Tweeters can post directly to another Tweeter or to everyone in general.

Each day there are trending topics that cover what is being discussed the most on any given day. The trending topics, usually accompanied with a hashtag # before the word, for example, #MilitaryMon, #honorourvets, #TGIF.

On Mondays thousands of Military supporters, veterans and active duty military come together and post messages in support of our troops, #SOT. Starting to get it? Yes, it is a little confusing at first but the point is that Twitter is just another way to honor those serving or who have served. I am even able to follow LCpl Honda’s deployment on Twitter! Very exciting for me!

On this blog, I have written a Military Monday post for quite awhile now. I usually include my post among my tweets every Monday. Below is a screen shot of my Twitter profile. Just another way to say #SOT, #honorourvets, #MilitaryMon!
