It's a new year and I can't think of a better reason to revamp the WD technology blog. Instead of just receiving interesting tech information on Tuesdays via our Techie Tuesday posts, I will be blogging throughout the week under Tech Tips, so you have more opportunities to find out about new innovations that will make your life a little easier. To start the new blog off right, I'll be covering a topic that is important to all of us, saving money!
is a recent innovation that has taken the world by storm. From breaking news to friend updates, Twitter can help you stay up to date on just about any subject. But, did you know it can also help you save money? Savings.com, a popular website for online coupons and deals, has started posting discounts and offers via its Twitter feed.
I checked out some of the past tweets and on one day they tweeted about a wide range of deals, including discounts on clothes, craft supplies and shoes. The best part about signing up for Twitter updates is you don't need to sit at your computer to receive them. You can opt to have them sent directly to your phone. (Note: Tweets are sent as text messages, so make sure you check with your mobile phone carrier to verify how many free texts you have on your plan.)
To receive deal updates, start following @savings on Twitter.com. To learn more about how to receive tweets on your phone, . – Meghan Ahearn
