Lesson #1: @kaitee_hart<p>This is the lesson where you learn that Spotify and Twitter can't be connected. It was December 2, 2016, and I was following the Tweets about The Hamilton Mixtape. I was listening to my Hamilton playlist on Spotify when I thought that it would be an awesome idea to create a Lin-Manuel Miranda playlist- In the Heights, Hamilton, The Hamilton Mixtape, and Moana- to share on Twitter. The button was there on Spotify to share a playlist to Twitter, which I utilized. It will lock you out and ask you to reset your password, which requires e-mail confirmation. (See also: Never Sign Up for a Twitter Account Using School E-Mail).<p>~-~<p>Lesson #2: @kai517_teenwriter<p>This lesson is short and sweet. Don't turn off all of your notifications. You will get asked to confirm your phone number- with a call!<p>~-~<p>Lesson #3: @kai517_rockingwriter<p>Lesson being I don't even know what. I tried Tweeting something, but it locked me out. So... beware, I guess?<p>~-~<p>Lesson #4: @pigfarts517<p>Be yourself. I have over four hundred Tweets of just myself- who I am, what I've thought, quotes, and Bible verses- and by far my most successful Twitter account ever- or any account, for that matter! I have had this account since early February, after nearly boycotting Twitter for what it's done to me, but I digress. Within that month or so, I have only been myself and earned 800+ followers, a like and Retweet from Jessica Marie Garcia, a like from AFV, and a like from Corner Gas. (Also, I was followed by Ron Hart- of Liv & Maddie fame- on the same day that I was Tweeted to, Retweeted, and liked by John D Beck- also of Liv & Maddie fame- and Laya something or other- of Liv & Maddie AND Doc McStuffins fame.) But being yourself is the best thing you can do for Twitter. And, honestly, we should get Verification if we Tweet as ourselves as often as I do!
