    To Read I Need Help

    Trust me. Same problem here, only with Twitter. I have a NOOK Simple Touch, but my mom has HD, so I will give you the HD stuff I sort of learned. First off: are you ever home alone? That is when I used to sneak online and use Twitter. Do the same with your HD. Then try finding a way to erase search results or recently used apps. Just try it when you know they are definetely NOT going to notice!
