Follow the Eagle on Twitter!
What is twitter?
Twitter is way of broadcasting short, timely messages. You can "follow" twitter messages (called "tweets" by the cool kids) of your friends, favorite businesses, etc., online or with your cell phone.
How does the Eagle use Twitter?
The most popular use of Twitter by the Eagle is with our sports updates. If you can't make it to a North Bend Central game and it doesn't happen to be on TV that night, the Eagle will post live score updates from games. Sometimes we will post score updates before the actual scoreboard at the game does. So if you can't make it to an away game, or you have grandparents living in Florida that want to see how the Tigers are going, the Eagle's twitter is a great way for them to follow the action. For games an Eagle reporter is at, you will get at least quarterly score updates, if not more. For games we are not at in person, we will still usually post final scores.
The Eagle also posts obituary/death notices as soon as we get them. This way you can get funeral information in case the funeral happens before the next print edition of the Eagle.
We also post other handy reminders and updates.
Really? Some Tiger games are on TV?
No. We were kidding. If you can't be there in person, Eagle tweets are your best bet for following the game in real time.
How do I follow the Eagle's twitter?
The easiest way is to visit northbendeagle.com, and read the latest updates in the black and gold twitter box. The three most recent tweets will be displayed there.
You can see all the Eagle's tweets by going to twitter.com/northbendeagle.
You can also sign up for your own twitter account. It's free and easy. Go to twitter.com and click "sign up." Then you can choose to follow the Eagle, or anyone else you want to. You do not have to post your own twitter messages to follow other people's tweets. Once you follow people, their tweets will show up on your twitter home page.
Yes, you can. If you have a smartphone, you can simply go to your own twitter page or app (if you have one and have your own twitter account), or twitter.com/northbendeagle to follow along.
You can also get Eagle tweets via text message sent to your phone (you can do this even if you don't have a smart phone, as long as you have text messaging.) You can sign up for Eagle tweets by texting the message "follow northbendeagle" to the number 40404.
If you want to stop getting Eagle tweets as text messages because you've been kidnapped by terrorists and this is their first demand and you're doing it simply to save your life, text "leave northbendeagle" to 40404.
