Frequently Asked Questions
Do you post on the weekends?
It depends. I usually do not post on the weekends because I try to have a life. But, I do understand that important news breaks 24/7 and I hate to miss out on something. So, if news arises, I will do my best to post – even on the weekends. The same goes for holidays.
Why don’t you write about what I want to read about?
That is a good question. I have a little poll that you can take (see below) to help me better understand what readers want to read about, but if you have a suggestion, just let me know.
How can I find older posts on your site easier?
Well, you can check out my Archives page or you can narrow down your search by category. At the top of the page, you will see a bunch of different topics, such as “Baby News” or “Politics” and if you click on any of those topics, you will see all the articles that have been written thus far. You can also search for your topic at the very top of the page – in the search box.
Why do you have ads on your website?
There are ads on this website because they generate money (don’t worry, it’s not enough to live on). Some readers may find the ads annoying, but it’s just a necessity. We apologize in advance if any of the ads annoy you.
What if I have a news tip and I want to share it with you?
So, you were at Muvico over the weekend with your friends when you saw Justin Bieber in the back row making out with a mystery girl. The horror! You can’t keep that gossip to yourself, not to mention the fact that you took a picture with your cell phone. Get that stuff out there.
That’s just an example, obviously. But if you catch news in the making, feel free to send your tips to contact Twisted-News via email at [email protected]
Do you accept guest contributors?
Yes, I do. Do I have a lot of contributors? No. But, if you would like to contribute to the stories you see here on Twisted-News.com, please send a writing example to [email protected] Please provide a relevant writing example. This is a news/gossip website, so your writing example should be related to what you may see here – even if its a fake story. We don’t want any college papers from your Intro. to Psychology class. The goal is to see how well you write about current events.
What’s up with the comments?
UPDATE (10/3/2011): All comments have been disabled due to outrageous amounts of spam. We know everyone likes to comment and share their opinions, but until we can find a way to filter out all the junk, we have to shut it down.
Everyone is allowed to comment on our articles and we hope you do, but in order to avoid a lot of spam, we’ve had to add security measures. But, there’s hope: once your first comment is approved, any comments you make in the future will post instantly on the website.
This is why it’s important to use a name and email address (even if it’s fake) that you will actually use again next time. If you make up a new name and email address each time you try to post a comment, your comment will have to be approved again. So save yourself and us a lot of trouble (especially if you’re impatient and like your comment posted right away) and use the same name and email each time you want to share your thoughts.
