Below are some of the most frequently asked questions along with answers to better help you create, share and embed your groups. If you're still in doubt, or have a question that is not listed below, please email us at email@example.com and we'll get back to you shortly.
How do I signup for Tweetizen?
Tweetizen does not require you to create a new username or password. Simply login using your exisiting twitter credentials.
If you're new to twitter, visit twitter.com and create a new account. By doing either of these, you will now be following Tweetizen and Tweetizen will be following you.
What is a #tag and how does it work?
#tags (hashtags) help make sense of the noise within Twitter. #tags are a community-driven convention for adding additional context and metadata to your tweets. They're like tags on Flickr, only added inline to your post. You create a hashtag simply by prefixing a word with a hash symbol: #tweetizen. By creating and using #tags, we can easily filter your tweets and show you tweets that really matter to you.
How do I create a group?
You can create two kinds of groups with Tweetizen - 1) group that filters tweets based on your interests and 2) group that filters tweets from your family and friends

Where is my group's URL?
You'll see a SHARE button directly above your tweets in your group. Click on it and your group's url is displayed. See illustrated example in step 7 in our HOW-TO section.
How do I embed a group to my website?
We've tried to make the embedding as simple as possible. In order to embed a group, you'll need to have access to your website's html code (in other words, you cannot embed your group to myspace or any 3rd party social networking site where you have no access to the code).
To get your embed code, click on the EMBED button that's directly above your tweets in your group. See illustrated example in step 7 in our HOW-TO section. Follow the instructions and you'll have your group on your own website within seconds.
Can I style my group?
Yes! You can change the width, height, font styles and colors as well as change the background colors of your group to best fit your site's theme. Visit our STYLESHEET section (link on the left) to better understand what is involved and how to go about making the changes.
