#askforce on Twitter
Community Could N/A Twitter
In recent years I haven’t had the time to be active as much on Twitter, but when I was I gained a lot from interacting with the community. #askforce is one of the more popular hashtags to ask questions and get answers. You can learn a lot just by watching the feed. And of course make sure to follow @Salesforce.
Objectives for this Resource:
