What is Twitter?
Twitter is a place where news is published, links are shared and memes are created. It is also a place to chat with friends. Unlike Facebook, Twitter is public by default. This is not a bad thing. This means your jokes can become viral if funny. You can talk to your favorite journalists, players, artists, or politicians in one place, as well as your friends.
In general, Tweets appear in the order in which they occur. At the top of the Twitter feed, you’ll see tweets tweeted a few seconds ago. New tweets appear above, replacing older ones. If you haven’t logged in for a while, you might find a box of suggested tweets you might have missed. But other than that, the equation is simple: The more you scroll, the older the tweet gets.
This power made Twitter the epicenter of all news and affairs to watch and comment on what’s happening around the world. As well as to comment on sports or TV shows, and also on popular news. People often use Twitter to make fun of celebrities.
The best (and sometimes the worst) is that people who share information and tweet pictures do not have to be newspapers. Anyone can be a journalist or cultural critic on Twitter, leading to different perspectives and ideologies to be part of the discussion.
How Twitter Works?
Tweets can include links, images, GIFs, or videos. But if you tweet the text, you are limited to 280 characters. Before it was 140, and it was more stressful, but once you get used to it, you love to use Twitter. This helps make Tweets faster, and there is less distraction to read when erasing other Tweets. Some even say that Twitter helps us to become a better writer.
An unprepared Twitter feed entry can leave you headless. Who to follow? Want to tweet? Do you appear on my Twitter page? Do I lose the things my friends post? What RT stands for? Follow our tips to get started on Twitter and prepare for a more rewarding experience.

Your First Tweet
Before starting tweets, it might be helpful to know a little about how Twitter works.
Step 1: All tweets have a maximum of 280 characters. Although it may seem trivial to say a lot, it is not. This could mean tweeting multiple times to clarify a complex point (in Twitter spare, we call it a thread), but summarizing your thoughts in a few lines will actually make your statement stronger and faster. It makes sharing faster and easier).
Step 2: Talk about Twitter feeds, if you have more than 280 characters in a topic, it’s easy to do. Type a tweet directly with the “Tweet” button and press the + button in the lower right. It will follow a series of tweets where you can create a broader point.
Step 3: If you want to add a photo, video, poll or GIF, you can do so in the bar below “Create a new Tweet”. Add a picture that does not use any of the 280 characters, and you can add four pictures or a video that is less than 2:20 and 500MB in length.
Step 4: Sharing the link with a tweet reduces the number of characters in your characters by 23.
Professional advice: Leave space between the text and the link. Otherwise, you can include a full link to a number of your characters.
Step 5: The hashtag is used to complete the conversation, and it appears on the left side of the most common Start tab. You can also click the hashtag. so you can touch or click on a particular hashtag to see all tweets related to this topic.
Understanding Common Vocabulary used on Twitter
The more you browse Twitter and find people, the more you understand about Tweeting.
HT means “hat tip”, and this is what he uses to calculate the credit that made him aware of the information he shared in a tweet. This is not necessary, but it is a good idea to do so.
The @ sign, or remember, occurs when a person’s username is added to Tweets. The person who mentioned it will be notified. Use it to send a “Hello, like this” audience or to add someone to an ongoing conversation.
RT means “retweet”. When you retweet someone, you can just post a tweet alone or add your own. If you do, when you post a tweet, a tweet attached to it will appear below your comment.
Twitter allows you to send messages directly to the people who have enabled this feature. It is often called DM and allows it to continue speaking in private and interacting with groups of people. Although all regular tweets are public, including @ mentions, the DM file is completely private. Only people part of the DM list can see the message.
Create Lists and Follow Hashtags
Many people complained about the difficulty of following Twitter. If people tweet something and you’re not connected to the internet, you will not see it later. But the idea of Twitter is not to capture every tweet and be like every else on the Internet. It looks like a great concert: an open rich chat room open to the public.
Twitter sometimes filters the schedule, showing tweets to the people you love first (see Twitter who talks more, so you know who wants to see tweets) in reverse time. Before appearing again in order. It’s a great feature that helps you keep up with everything that happens while you are away.
However, if you do not want to lose momentum, here are some tips.
- Go directly to the page of the person you want to follow and see what he tweets.
- Find the hashtag for the event you want to follow, then click the “Live” tab to see recent tweets in the larger conversation.
- Turn on your notifications. You can configure your mobile app to send you automatic notifications based on popular tweets of activities and news. This is really useful if you want to track the people you love.
Remember that everything on Twitter is public by default. However, you can easily create your own personal experience. If you want to make Twitter a place where you can chat privately with friends, set up your account as private.
Enabling this setting means that you must allow anyone who wants to follow you manually if you want them to see your tweets and chat with you. With a personal account, only those people whom you give access will be able to see your tweets and follow you.
However, most people choose to have a public account. If Facebook is a table with your family and friends, Twitter is an interesting bar. Most of them choose to keep the default value, but they only choose to say things they feel comfortable telling strangers about.
Most importantly, if your account is public and you see random stupid tweets, please feel free to block or report such morons on Twitter.
