Following on Twitter??

A lot of moms (in other groups) have mentioned they are friends with their kids on FB (or not) for whatever reasons.

I just wondered if anyone follows their child on Twitter? I just opened a Twitter account this evening because I love the show Once Upon A Time & they were previewing the spin off "in wonderland" & said to tweet #tinkerbell if you believe in magic. So I had to of course LOL. But I also decided to follow my 17yo DS & a couple of his friends. All are Christians & from what I can tell from their tweets they are keeping it clean no matter what! I'm impressed & very proud.

So what about you ladies... do you follow your child's Twitter accounts? Why or why not?

I don't have twitter. My kids are adults now. They didn't get accounts till they were over 18.

I don't twitter, tweet or whatever it is called.   I do well to keep up with facebook, lol!     Neither of my sons twitter.   One doesn't have facebook, either.    He just isn't into social media...unless it is X Box live.

Mine has twitter but her account is private so I can't see it. I have absolutely no use for twitter but I know she's been tweeted, followed and talked to by some minor celebrities. She loves that.

 My 15 yr old has a twitter account ,he knows I follow him.He is very interested in politics and started...opened....whatever it is called a Twitter account because he thinks he is a bit of a political pundit.The account is devoted to political commentary.

He is also followed by his adult siblings ,cousins,a couple of the youth group leaders at church,some of my friends ....so I'm not very concerned.He is thrilled to have followers .....this group follows him to be nice but if concerned I would be contacted.

I follow my 22 yr old and my 19 year old. I pretty was new to Twitter about a year ago. Like you, I also signed up for updates on things I enjoy. Both of my boys are grown and out of the home and sometimes that is the only interaction I will have with them, so I follow them and they follow me.

My kids don't have Twitter accounts, but if they did I would follow them, just like I'm friends with them on Facebook.

I follow my kids/are friends with them on all their social media accounts. It's not to be a snoop though. I am also friends with lots of their friends. My girls are 15 and 13 (9th grade and 7th grade).
