I need advice about being part of the Twitter Army of Awesome Help

Posted

I am grateful for the fact of Mozilla and I use Twitter a lot.

Although I am not technically competent, I do have experience of using Mozilla and Thunderbird for quite some years and am willing to share my experience.

I obviously do not want to make matters worse for questioners and need some advice about how to begin.

Is there a Forum where Folk such as me can share experiences of answering Tweets and also just be given examples how the system works, please, or might it be better for me to resign before I start rather than cause complications for anyone?

Question owner

Thanks - I hope to have a check there, when I have more time, meanwhile I see that separately I have been sent an email asking for my experience etc.. -

I plan to attend to that when I am less pressed for time, it may not be for some while though - my spirit is willing but resources few, but if I just learn to do some small things it spreads the load - and I guess I have made a very small start - I have wondered about it for years but that Awesome Tweet was the prompt that got me this far!
