    • Terms and Definitions
      Hashtag (#) – placing a # in front of a keyword makes that word searchable. Hashtags can be anything from one word to multiple words but cannot contain spaces. These are often used for industry specific events or meetings, conferences and gatherings and to imply sarcasm or an inside joke.
      Example: I am speaking at #socialsummit.
      I am enjoying #jazzfest.
      I can’t believe she named her kids that! #mariahcareybabynames
      Handle (@____) – the Handle is your twitter name.
      Example: I am @andyknola on Twitter but Andy Kutcher in real life
    • Terms and Definitions
      Retweet (RT) – Retweet, this is what you’ll see in front of a Tweet you send from another person.
      Example: RT @andyknola: What a beautiful day in NOLA!
      Via (V/ or Via/) – Another version of a Retweet. You’ll often see this at the end of a tweet.
      Example: What a beautiful day in NOLA! Via/ @andyknola
      Direct Message (DM) – A private conversation between two people.
      Example: You might see someone say “DM me your email address”
