Get the most out of your chirps with these few tips:

  1. Use @username to mention a specific user.
  2. Use @GCIN (replace GCIN with the proper number) to mention an individual item.
  3. Use #subdomain to mention a specific collection. To find the subdomain of a collection, simply look up in your browser's address bar. The subdomain is the letters that follow the 'http://', but come before the '.gocollect.com'. For example, the subdomain for comics.gocollect.com would just be comics (used as #comics).
  4. Use a hashtag (#) directly in front of a word to make it a search link.
