We hope these websites will be useful for the Agricultural community.
Twitter – a website that according to Wikipedia “offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling its users to send and read messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user’s profile page. Tweets are publicly visible by default; however, senders can restrict message delivery to just their followers. Users may subscribe to other users’ tweets—this is known as following and subscribers are known as followers.
There are a number of Australian Agricultural companies that use twitter but do take the time to investigate the #agchatoz feed on twitter. Its a great way to connect with farmers and those that have an interest in Australian agriculture. Highly recommended.
A new twitter feed we also recommend is #RuralMH this feed deals with mental health issues for rural Australia. Follow @RuralMH.
