    • What is Twitter?
      Twitter is what is called a microblogging site. People post short updates and share them with followers. Unlike Facebook you don’t just become friends with people you know. You can choose to follow people who share similar interests or whose Tweets you find interesting. It is shorter and faster moving than Facebook.
      • A great way to converse with customers and potential customers
      • Good way to research what is being said about your industry.
      • Tweets can be up to 140 characters (letters, numbers, symbols and spaces)

    • Hashtags #tags
      • Hash tags are added to Tweets to mark that they are about a specific topic.
      • Using the search box at the top of the page you can search for a hashtag.
      • Popular at the moment #notinmyname #corrie #lls#vinb
      • Great for watching the television
    • @replies
      • The @symbol before a word signifies that it is a user name. For example I am @spiderworking
      • If you are addressing a Tweet at someone you need to use the @ before their name to ensure they see it.
      • The @symbol can be used anywhere in a Tweet.
      • If you add it at the beginning only the person you are Tweeting, you and people that follow both of you will see it in their news feed
      • If you use the @symbol mid tweet all your followers will see it as well as the person that you are talking about
    • RT - ReTweet
      • An RT is when someone shares a Tweet that someone else has posted so that their followers can see it.
      • To ReTweet someone hover your mouse over the Tweet
      • Click the arrow circle
      • You will be prompted to confirm that you want to ReTweet.
