Still not sure what the heck Twitter is or why you'd want to use it? I understand completely: Friends and family members are constantly asking me, "What the heck is Twitter, and why would I want to use it?"

I have to admit, I'm not very good at explaining it. But no matter, because now I can refer everyone to [[xref:http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-complete-guide-to-twitter-pdf/|"The Complete Guide to Twitter,"|"The Complete Guide to Twitter" a free 40-page guide from MakeUseOf.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
