Before you go an sign up though we know that many people say that they “just don’t get Twitter” but this cool little video explains what it’s all about.

Once you’ve registered as a Twitter you’ll be able to set your background, put up some basic information like location and a mini biography and set up a little avatar too. But we know you’re probably want to jump right in and start finding the prizes?
