  26. 26.

  27. 27. Key terms…<br />To follow somebody is to subscribe to their messages<br />A tweet is an individual message<br />A DM or direct message is a private message on Twitter<br />RT or retweet is to repost a valuable message from somebody else on Twitter and give them credit<br />Trending topics are the most-discussed terms on Twitter at any given moment<br />
  28. 28. …and some special lingo<br />@username is a public message to or about an individual on Twitter<br />A hashtag—the # symbol followed by a term and included in tweets—is a way of categorizing all the posts on a topic<br />Shortened URLs. To fit links into the short messages, Twitter shrinks some URLs down automatically<br />
