Using Twitter to Follow the LA County Science Olympiad
The LA County Science Olympiad will be "live tweeting" the competition on Saturday, February 28, 2015. A "tweet' is a short (140 character maximum) text message distributed by the Twitter network worldwide. For more information about tweeting see http://webtrends.about.com/od/socialnetworking/a/what-is-twitter.htm.
