If you are a not a member of social networks such as Twitter or Facebook, visit their website and create an account with them before you link your Kindle to them.  They may require you to accept their terms of use before creating an account or using their service.  The following steps describe the process for linking to your Twitter account, but you use the same process to link to other social network accounts.

To link your Kindle to your Twitter account, follow these steps:

1.  If you are not already on the Home screen, press the Home button.

2.  Make sure Whispernet is turned on.

3.  Press the Menu button.

4.  Use the 5-way to navigate to “Settings” and press to select it.

5.  Press the Next Page to go to Page 3 of Settings.

6.  Use the 5-way to navigate to “manage” next to the “Social Networks” setting and press to select.  The “Manage Your Social Networks” screen appears.

7.  To link your Kindle to your Twitter account, select “Link Account” under Twitter.

8.  Use the 5-way to navigate to “Username or Email” and type your Twitter user name or e-mail address.  To enter a capital letter, press and hold the Shift key  down while pressing the letter.

9.  Use the 5-way to navigate to “Password” and type your password.

10.  Use the 5-way to navigate to “Sign in” and press to select it.

11.  If this is the first time you are linking your Kindle to your Twitter account, select Allow to confirm that you want to allow your Kindle to access your Twitter account.

There you have it!  Start twitting away 🙂

      Hi Antonia, unfortunately some of the features the Kindle has are catered more towards U.S. consumers. I’ve heard many people ask questions as to why international customers don’t get the same features and I’m sure it is something Amazon is working on in the near future.
