Social Media


The SPD Foundation is on Facebook! Please join our cause page and help us spread SPD awareness to others. We know the trend is moving toward Facebook and more of you get up and check your Facebook every morning before you read your email! We want to offer you another source where you can get current news, updates, happenings, special events and more.

We're doing our best to stay up to par with the social media frenzy, so the SPD Foundation is now on Twitter, too! We are just getting our feet wet, but we have found Twitter to be a wonderful tool to get quick messages out to our readers. We use Twitter for media and news updates, links to helpful articles and blogs, special events, etc.

For those of you who may not know about Twitter, it is sort of like a text. You can set tweets (messages) to come directly to your cell phone just like a text. Tweets are limited to 140 characters, which amounts to about a sentence or two. You do not need to have internet on your cell phone in order to receive tweets. However, you do need internet access to set up a Twitter account, which takes about two minutes. Then you can . You don't have to set your tweets to come to your cell phone. You can go to your account on your computer and read them there.
