You may be wondering how to take the leap into the land of twitter. Today, I’m going to give all of you newbies a brief and simple explanation of the absolute basics of twitter.
What is twitter?
Twitter is an online social networking tool in which users post 140 character updates of what is going on in their lives and/or links to things they think are interesting, funny, or useful. These updates can be seen by their “followers” or people who follow them to see their updates. You can use twitter to read other people’s status updates as well as to interact with others. Essentially, you can either just browse and keep up to date on what’s going on in people’s lives or you can interact/socialize.
What are twitter users?
You can choose who you follow on twitter and thus have control over whose status updates you see. When you’re on your homepage, you’ll see a feed of your followers’ tweets. On your page (twitter.com/yourname), you will see a feed of your own tweets.
How do you direct message?
Direct Messages are essentially private tweets you can send to another user. This is not displayed in their newsfeed and no one but the other user can see it. They are similar to messages on facebook.
How do you retweet?
Retweeting is someone else’s tweet that you forward to your followers.
You can use the built-in Retweet feature for this. Here’s how you do it::
- Hover over a Tweet.
- Click the Retweet icon.
- A pop-up will show you the Tweet you’re about to Retweet.
- Click the Retweet button.
- The Tweet will then be shared with all of your followers as a Retweet!
Hashtags (#) are are a way to mark or group words in a tweet so that other users can click on the hashtag and see all the tweets containing hashtags of the same work. You can place the hashtagged words anywhere in the tweet (i.e., beginning, middle, end). They contain no spaces and begin with the “#” symbol.
Here’s an example tweet: #Crazybulk is the best legal steroid!
In this example, #Crazybulk is the hashtag. Clicking on this hashtag will tag you to a page with all the tweets also containing the #Crazybulk hashtag.
These are the VERY basics of twitter. I hope you all found this helpful! Please comment below with any questions or suggestions! Thanks!
