Is DISH Network on Twitter?
The problem with technology, particularly new technology, is that it can be complicated. Often enough, you’ll buy a new doodad and pitch its headache-inducing instruction booklet without ever finding out what its buttons do. But then you do want to use one of those features you didn’t think you had a use for, and you definitely don’t want to pay for a new booklet. So what are you supposed to do, spend time listening to elevator music on the telephone just to get a two-minute fix?
Actually, you probably should have read the booklet and kept it someplace where you’d be able to find it again. But just in case you didn’t, DISH Network® came up with a solution for its customers: It set up a DISH Network Twitter page where customers can ask a team of dedicated gurus about DISH Network and its equipment - and get their answers in a matter of seconds.
The only hitch is that to use this free service from DISH Network, you’ll need to have a Twitter account. If you don’t have a Twitter account, then you’ll need to set one up. But don’t worry - it’s very easy to do. Then the folks here at InternetLion.com have put together the following list of instructions, which will get you following DISH Network on Twitter in no time.
