Default Webkinz Insider Members Have Questions About Twitter

A new front page story has been added:

Webkinz Insider Members Have Questions About Twitter

Click the image to open in full size.Following the announcement by Ganz on Twitter that they had awarded three Sparkling Pegasus pets to Webkinz fans, we have been getting a TON of questions here on Webkinz Insider about the new pet and about Twitter itself. Here are answers to the top three questions:
  • How do I sign up for a chance to win a Sparkling Pegasus? At this point, we don't have an answer for this question. Ganz announced that they had awarded three of these exclusive pets to "fans", but didn't specify if those fans were Twitter followers or Webkinz World players. Until we hear from one of the winners, or until Ganz makes an announcement, there isn't any way to know.
UPDATE: Thank you to Webkinz Insider member SnowCrystal for sharing the following direct message she received from Webkinz with us: "They were sent through Twitter direct messages. We'll give future ones out through Webkinz Newz contests, and maybe even KinzPost."
  • How do I sign up on Twitter? It's easy. You just need to go to http://twitter.com/ and create a profile. Just like with any other website, internet safety on Twitter can be a concern. Anyone who creates a Twitter profile should be very careful about posting personal information. Children should check with their parents before signing up for Twitter or any other social-networking site. If you are under the age of 13, you are NOT eligible to sign up for a Twitter account.
  • How can I send Ganz a message on Twitter? Once you've signed up for Twitter, go to your "home" page and type a message. The message must be no more than 140 characters and start with @webkinz. As long as you include @webkinz in the message, the employees who monitor the Webkinz Twitter account will be able see what you have to say. Remember, Twitter is a PUBLIC forum, so everyone on the internet can also read your message.

Thank you for letting us all know. My question is how do you get notified that someone tweeted that you follow? I follow WI and Ganz, but I am never notified that they tweet anything. Clearly I am the best computer person around!

Do you mean on your phone? If you want to have tweets sent to your phone you need to turn that option on. To have tweets sent to your phone, you must select that option on the "following" screen.

I asked my phone dude and he said that it costs money to have it sent to the phone. Is there another way to get notices or do you have to go to twitter to see them? I just thought it would be like other places and they would email you.

You can pop up a web browser window and go to twitter.com and sign in. You can see everything from the web browser window (e.g. internet explorer, firefox).

I don't have them sent to my phone either. My plan doesn't include text messaging.

You can read the tweets from WIdotcom, Webkinz, and Ganz eStore right on WI's front page. They're on the bottom-right side of the screen.

You mean to send a message to Ganz?

Just go to your "home" page on Twitter:

Thank you everyone for the help. I always read what is on WI all over the front page. I was just hopeing there was a way to be notified of a tweet. Why can't life be simple? Also I wish I could access my phone with WW. I missed the rug last night because I was at dinner with friends. Why do they have to happen when I am not at home? WHY? I think I might have a problem!
