Twitter

Twitter lets you share what’s on your mind in 140 characters or less. This means you need to keep your thoughts short and snappy! You can follow other users so you stay updated on what they are doing and thinking.

Pinterest

Pinterest is a super visual site that lets you create a collection of your fave things. You can create different boards (basically collections with themes) and then “pin” images that you find online. For example, if you want to start planning your summer wardrobe shopping, you can pin items you like from different clothing websites like American Eagle, Old Navy, Abercrombie, etc.

Tumblr

Tumblr is kind of similar to Pinterest, but a bit more dynamic. Users create their own micro blogs that are usually a collection of images, GIFS and videos.

Pheed

Man, for GOD SAKE, They're HUMAN!. It isn't their fault that they're diagnosed with a disability, you think they wanted it in the first place? I'm friends with MANY of them, and half of you wouldn't even realize that you're friends with them... because some of them act like all of us. You guys can be so huge, so big, don't let a stupid label let you down. You guys are worth so much more than a learning disability, and if you work hard, you will conquer it.
