You can use the same password that you use on Facebook, but it is usually not recommended. If one of the two sites were to be hacked, it would be very easy to obtain your password from one site to hack into the account for another. I would just make sure you don't have very sensitive information on either site if you are going to use the same password for both.
To link up to twitter, you want to register with them first.
1) Visit www.twitter.com from your computer's web browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.)
2) You should near the top or middle of the page that asks "New to Twitter? Join Today!" Fill out the information it asks for, which is your full name, your e-mail address, and the password you would like to use to log in. Finally, click the "sign up" button below the form.

*NOTE: If you don't see this, there might be somebody else signed in on that computer. You should sign them out by click on their username on the right half of the top bar.

3)After that, they should send you a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you gave them. Click on the link in the e-mail and that should activate your account.
4) From there you may need to login, then viola! You have Twitter!

I have been using Delicious for years now to store my bookmarks ever since an early version of Firefox crashed on me and I lost the lot.

I hear a lot of talk about twitter and facebook.how do i start twittering and facebooking? do i need a special program or password


All you need is just a valid e-mail acount in order to register at the comunity. Go on, try for it but be carefull not to give your private personal details. It's a good idea to create a new e-mail acount at services like yahoo.com or gmail.com or whatever you want.

Facebook says my email / password combination is incorrect


HI,

Once you click on Forgot Password you will not get your old pass back.You will only get another new pass generated by the facebook support.

So you will have to use that new generated pass.After you login with that new generated pass you can then change your pass back to the old one by going into the settings or profile option.
