Scarleteens Speak

I have a very exciting announcement to make (and a little bit of a happydance that goes with it, but I'm not sure that's something anyone wants to see, so I'll stick with just the announcement for now).

As of today, readers and users at our message boards have the chance to participate in a twitter feed of their own. Scarleteen already has a twitter feed updated by Heather Corinna and a few other volunteers and staff members (it's at if you're interested). But this new account is going to be created, updated and maintained by our message board users and readers.

From time to time, volunteers may step in to add quotes from posts at the message boards, but the content will be exclusively the words of the young people who use Scarleteen. There is already a section of the main site dedicated to young people's voices - "In Your Own Words" - but this new twitter feed is an opportunity for the amazing teens and young adults we have here to get their voices heard through another medium. It's already off to a great start, and you can check it out at

If you're interested in participating, please contact me via email at karyn AT scarleteen DOT com, and we'll get you set up.

Happy tweeting!
