Thrifty Twitterers give saving advice

If you like to save money, you might want to start checking Twitter.

Every day, dozens of people -- including The Debt Diva, Clarky Davis, and now, me -- are "tweeting" money-saving tips.

I'm new to Twitter but Clarky's been tweeting for more than a year and has some six-thousand followers.

So, I sat down with her for a crash course.

"It's like sitting down with a friend and chatting," Davis explains. But unlike blogs or articles, Tweets are short and you can access them quickly when you have time.

Other money-saving Twitterers include Bargain Babe, the Bargainr, Frugally Yours and Miss Thrifty.

And using Twitter's search function, you can type in key words to find out who else's Tweets you might like.

Try typing in search terms like "coupons," " freebies," "thrifty," " frugal" and "saving."

And once you've found a Twitterer you like, you can see who they're following or "Re-Tweeting" to expand your network of money-saving sources.

"I love finding great news articles and re-tweeting those out to the masses," Davis explains.
