Twitter round-up returns

Posted on 2 min read 34 views

  • Messages can be only 140 character long
  • Those @names are Twitter handle/addresses (mine is @RhondaLane)
  • Messages are called Tweets
  • News moves fast on Twitter

This year, the second season of Animal Planet’s “Jockeys” took us down the Derby trail.

If you followed the Kentucky Derby prep races this spring and remember some of the Derby coverage, you’ll have an idea of what’s probably coming up next on the show’s season finale this Friday.

More or less. 😉
