Primal/Paleo Twitter Community

I'm going to start using the #Primal tag on all my Twitter posts about what I am eating. See Mark Sissons' post, for the background.

For those not familiar with Twitter, imagine having a blog where all your posts have to be 140 characters or less. Just like you can subscribe to blogs with an RSS reader, if you have a Twitter account you can follow other Twitter users and have see all their mini-posts ('Tweets') on your home page. The difference is, with Twitter, everyone is a blogger if they want to be...

The # system is just a way of tagging your Tweets. If everyone starts tagging their tweets about Primal/Paleo eating then it allows two things:
  1. You can find other like-minded Twitterers by searching all tweets for the tag
  2. We have a great way to collect together all the fantastic meal and restaurant recommendations and suggestions that come from the community
Tagging a Tweet is as simple as including #Primal at the start of the Tweet. It's a shame you lose 7 of those valuable characters, but it's a small price to pay!

So get Twittering by signing up here... and why not start by following Mark and me!

I'm on board! It's great and has already boosted the number of paleo/primal folks I am connected with.
