    • @ = Reply To/Mention
    • When replying to a user’s post, the replier would place the @ symbol before the user name of the person they are replying to.
    • When the @ symbol is used within the Tweet, this is a Mention.

  • 6. More Basics...
    • RT = ReTweet
    • This could be found at the beginning of a status and would be followed with the original author’s post. It is used when a user is re-posting (ReTweeting) another user’s status.
    • Direct Message
      • When two users are following each other, they have the option to send a Direct Message. There is still a 140 character limit, but these messages are completely private - more like an e-mail.
  • 7. Additional Capabilities
    • Tweeters can upload images and videos to 3rd party websites and put a link in their status that directs followers to view the media.
  • 8. Continued...
    • Users can customize their profile picture, background and color scheme.
    • Twitter tracks Tweet content and compiles “Trending Topics” that are searchable to see what people are tweeting about.
    • Often the # symbol is used to tag a word or phrase. This symbol makes the topic more searchable & encourages it to become a Trending Topic.
