Transcript of "@vahva's guide to Twitter - Part 2 of 3 - Creating your profile"

  1. 1. http://bryonytaylor.com @vahva’s guide to Twitter Part 2: Creating your profile
  2. 2. http://bryonytaylor.com What is a tweet? Twitter is based on the sharing of these short messages between people who choose to ‘follow’ each other. It’s a bit like a micro form of email – but public rather than private A tweet is a short message comprising 140 characters (that is letters plus spaces) which answers the simple question ‘what’s happening?’
  3. 3. http://bryonytaylor.com Create your accountSign up at twitter.com and follow the instructions
  4. 4. http://bryonytaylor.com Choose a user name – this could be your real name or a nickname. The shorter the better (this will leave more room for your tweets – 140 character messages). All Twitter addresses are the @ symbol followed by the username (it’s like a contracted email address). The actual web address is: http://twitter.com/username @myusername
  5. 5. http://bryonytaylor.com Don’t stay as an egg – it renders you virtually invisible! Choose a good picture that works as a small image. Think what it says about you.
  6. 6. http://bryonytaylor.com Complete the ‘bio’ section: This will help people to find you and also help them to decide whether to follow you. Some people use a list of key words, others write a greeting. It’s up to you but don’t leave it blank. Add a web address – your work or blog or LinkedIn profile.
  7. 7. http://bryonytaylor.com Real name Username Bio Location Website Profile picture Header picture
  8. 8. http://bryonytaylor.com Change how your profile looks at any time by clicking on the cog icon in the top right. You can add a ‘theme’ and Header photo as well.
  9. 9. http://bryonytaylor.com
  10. 10. http://bryonytaylor.com Start following people, twitter makes suggestions for you: twitter.com/who_to_follow/suggestions Search for something you’re interested in (eg. books). Click the follow button on the profiles you like. The more people you follow, the more useful Twitter becomes. Don’t agonise over who to follow, you can change your mind really easily at any time by clicking on ‘unfollow’.
