    • Tweeting Your Tweeps - Understanding Twitter Lingo Like most online communities, the Twitter world has developed its own unique language. Here are the basics:  Tweet - Another word for a 140-character update.  Tweeps/Tweeple - Short for “twitter people.” Your friends and followers in the twitter community.  Hashtag - A hashtag is used to keep track of a topic that many people are talking about. The hashtag is the pound sign (#) followed by the chosen descriptive word of the topic. As an example, during the Blissdom conference, whenever someone wrote something about the conference, they would end their tweet with this - #blissdom09.  DM - Stands for direct message. You can send a direct message to any of your twitter followers. DMs are private between the sender and receiver.  RT - Stands for Re-Tweet. A retweet is when you copy and paste something someone else said and tweet it yourself. When you retweet, it is common to put RT followed by the original tweeters name and the tweet.  Fail Whale - When something goes wrong on the backend of twitter, or when too many people are using it at the same time, you will automatically be redirected to the page (shown to the right) That is called the “Fail Whale.” © 50 Thursday, June 3, 2010 50
    • ‘HOME’: ONLY YOU SEE this page when you click ‘Home’ These ‘Tweets’ are from only those you are ‘following’ Click here to find out where you’re mentioned Click here to view your DMs (private) tweets Search: hashtag with topic i.e. #FWA, #CPA, #socialmedia View topics on Twitter getting lots of traffic View info on those you ‘follow’ © 51 Thursday, June 3, 2010 51

    • Twitter-ese  What is a Twitter Status Update or ‘Tweet’?  Twitter always asks the question, "What are you doing?" Each answer to that question is considered a Twitter status update, or what people often call a "tweet" of 140 characters or less  Why 140 characters?  The standard text message length in most places is 160 characters per message. Twitter reserves 20 characters for people's names.  What is a Re-tweet ‘RT’?  Retweets is when you copy and re-post (or re-tweet) someone else’s Twitter status update. This is standard Twitter etiquette by listing RT followed by the @username with the repost  What are hashtags ‘#’?  Hashtags: A hashtag is similar to other web tags- it helps add tweets to a category. Hashtags have the 'hash' or 'pound' symbol (#) preceding the tag, like so: #traffic, #followfriday, #hashtag. Hashtags can occur anywhere in the tweet: some people just add a # before a word. Take a look at the third party site, hashtag.org, to get an idea of popular hashtags used on Twitter.  What is an @Reply?  An @reply is any Twitter update that begins with @username;  Twitter folks wanted to talk to each other so they started using the @+username+message to designate their message as a reply to another person.  What is a mention?  A mention is any Twitter update that contains @username in the body of the tweet.  If you include more than one person in your update and you use the @username format, that person will also see the update in their replies tab.  How do replies and mentions work?  All tweets containing @username are collected for you, accessible by a link in your sidebar. Click on your user name to see all replies made to you, and mentions of your user name.  What is a direct message? (DM) Private Twitter Messages  In addition to public updates and @replies, you can send followers private tweets, called direct messages, too. If someone is following you, you can send a direct message from the web via the "message" link on the profile page. © 54 Thursday, June 3, 2010 54
