Twitter - What Is It?
Twitter is like a cocktail party where everyone
can see what you are saying.
Twitter is a word game where you have 140
characters to convey your message.
Tweeting is appropriate at any time of the day
or night. But, the conversations are most
interactive during the day.
Twitter - Basics
○ You’ve got 140 characters. Every tweet is like a
little language game!
● RT: ReTweet.
○ Use RT when you want to ReTweet something that
someone else posted.
● Tag People.
○ Use their handle (@ThePersonYouWantToTag)
in your tweet to tag someone.
Twitter - Expert
● MT: Modified ReTweet.
○ Use this when you want to ReTweet something
someone else posted, but maybe you added a little
something beforehand, and now you’re out of
characters. So, you modify the original Tweet,
without losing it’s message.
● OH: Overheard.
○ You heard something funny, informative, worth
sharing. But, it isn’t your original thought. Use OH.
If you know who said it, tag them using the
Twitter - Auto-Tweet
From Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, you
can set up preferences to automagically
Tweet whatever you are posting on Facebook,
LinkedIn, or Pinterest.
● If you choose to do this:

○ Remember to still check on your Twitter activity to
respond to anyone who reaches out to you.

More, More, More
There are hundreds of social mediums out
there. If you find another one that you enjoy,
by all means, jump in and swim in that pool!
Just be sure that you keep up with at least
one of the core 3:
My on-the-go preference for managing social
media is my iPhone. Any smart phone should
serve you well.
Download the individual apps, but don’t
totally rely on them. It’s a good idea to check
the websites, even if from your smart phone.
Facebook is notorious for displaying different
information on the app vs. the web site.
