  • 39.
  • 40. Twitter Defined
    Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets.
  • 41. Setting up your Twitter account
  • 42. Signing Up
  • 43. Bio & Location
    Bio - Make sure you say something meaningful in your Bio so others can learn something about you. Bios are searchable.
  • 44. Bio & Location
    Location – Use your location as a way for others to locate you. Location is searchable.
  • 45. Following
    Following - Following someone on Twitter means getting their updates in your personal timeline.
    Followers are people who receive your tweets.  If you follow someone, you're their follower – you receive their tweets in your homepage.  If someone follows you, they're your follower – they'll receive your tweets in their home page.
  • 47. Following does not = Friends
    Following is not like friend requests on social networking sites (i.e. Facebook)– Unlike most social networks, following on Twitter isn't mutual.  In other words, someone who thinks you're interesting can follow you, and you don't have to approve, or follow back. Deciding to follow back and changing your mind later is fine- just visit the person's profile page and un-follow; Twitter does not send a notification when you unfollow someone. 
  • 48. Four Types of Tweets
    Status Update or Tweet
    @ Reply (also known as a Mention)
    Direct Message
  • 49. Twitter always asks the question, "What’s happening?”  
    Each answer to that question is considered a Twitter status update, or what people often call a "tweet."  Each update is 140 characters or less.

  • 53. #hashtags
    Hashtags by definition are used to create real time track records of creating groups on twitter. Placing the # sign in front of keywords or targeted groups, makes it easier to track all conversations in the twitter timeline via search.
