Internet Video Tips for Creationists
Video is very popular and powerful on the internet. Many people are not aware how truly popular YouTube videos are because YouTube only displays to the viewers of YouTube videos the video view counts that occur by people who happen to be logged into YouTube at the time they saw the video. The person who operates the YouTube video channel is able to determine the actual view counts , however.
The popularity of video is especially true today because many people prefer video to reading. Video is also a great way to attract traffic and links from other websites and from the search engines like Google.

All you do is set up a Twitter page then go into your YouTube channel and look at one of your videos and below it will say TWITTER. Click the Twitter icon and it auto broadcasts your video to your Twitter page! Very easy and you don't have to do anything.
