    • 101
    • Home This is your timeline, where you read all of the tweets from the people you are following. (Note: Your timeline appears empty until you follow others. More on this later on.) ! The majority of your time will be spent here, as you search for interesting resources and information.
    • Once you click on a tweet, four different options appear. Home
    • Home 1. Reply ! Respond to the person who wrote the tweet. The person will be alerted because his handle (@dylanwilliam) appears in your reply. All of your followers can see your reply.
    • 2a. Retweet or Quote Tweet ! Retweeting takes the tweet and then forwards it to all of your followers, without change. Home
    • 2b. Retweet or Quote Tweet ! Quoting the tweet takes the tweet and then forwards it to all of your followers, but provides you with the chance to make edits. Home
    • 3. Favoriting ! You can favorite a tweet so you can easily find it later on. Home
    • 4. Mailing and Copying ! These are a few ways for you to share a tweet/resource with someone “outside” of Twitter. Home
    • Search for topics or people ! People use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their tweet to categorize those tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter search. Home
    • Once you search for a person, read his profile and decide if you want to follow him (middle-right). If you follow, his tweets are added to your timeline. ! Also, you can access someone’s profile at any time by clicking on his avatar. Home
    • A tweet (top-right) without any handles @ or hashtags # only goes out to those who follow you. ! Add a handle to get the attention of a particular person (@dylanwilliam). ! More importantly, add hashtags so your tweet will come up when others search for the hashtags (#education, #edtech, #edchat, etc.). This is the #1 way to expand your audience! Home
    • Me This is your designated homepage. It contains your profile, which others will look at when deciding whether or not to follow you. Make your profile count!
 There are also three main buttons to discuss.
    • 1. Preferences ! This button allows you to edit your profile, change your settings, get help, or sign out. Me
    • 2. Accounts ! This button allows you to switch back and forth between multiple Twitter accounts. Me
    • 3. Direct Message ! This button (envelope icon) allows you to send a direct message to another user. This message can only be seen by the recipient. It is the equivalent of an email. Me
    • Thank
