How to Sign Up
Twitter is an online social networking
service that allows users to communicate
through the exchange of quick, frequent
messages called tweets.

– Keep your ‘handle’ (username) professional.
– Don’t put the Brocade name in your handle or the Brocade logo in your profile
and clearly express that opinions are your own.
– Make sure to upload a photo and a cover photo and add a short bio to
characterize your persona on Twitter!

Twitter search.
