There are heaps of ways to tune in to what’s hot and happening in the LGBTQ world – if you take advantage of Twitter! If you are already a Twitter tweeter, or want to scan for LGBTQ news from a variety of sources, or are interested in finding good LGBTQ Tweets to follow, just enter #LGBT (hashtag LGBT)! If you add more letters (LGBTQ, LGBQI) you will get different results, all very timely and interesting! Whatever hashtag you prefer, you will you will pick up tweets from the most active LGBT groups – GLAAD, The Advocate, Freedom to Marry, It Gets Better, and many more. In addition, if any mainstream group is doing something important for our communities, you will find it here quickly and easily! This morning, the U.S. Department of State is coming up near the top of the list with news of the first UN Security Council on LGBT rights!
If you are interested in following any of your favorite LGBTQ advocacy groups, once you see their tweets from your hashtag search, you will see their twitter identity, and can easily follow those you find most interesting!
