There are some basic tips for Twitter for dummies. I must admit that I have been in that category. It is one of the fastest growing online communities, so it might be a good idea to know some facts. If you want to join this social networking service, go to www.twitter.com.
A tweet is basically a small message of about 140 characters that is sent out to Twitter followers. The message can mention other users, which is proceeded by the @ sign, or a tag by using the hashtag # sign. You can also add links to online content, which many people do here with their articles.
One of the tips for Twitter dummies is to understand what a mention is. A mention is a tweet that mentions other Twitter users. Before you mention them, use the @ symbol. An example would be @JaneDoe. You can follow anyone you like out there, including friends or even a celebrity. If you want your Tweets to be seen, you need to have some followers. Try to connect with friends or others with common interests.
Have you ever wondered about the use of a hashtag on Twitter? I never did understand this one. If you use a keyword, a hashtag helps to direct searchers or to influence topics that are trending. The keyword is used all in one word with the # sign in front of it. An example would be #dancingwiththestars.
Twitter dummies might like to know about retweeting. A person who likes a tweet made by someone else, can share it by a retweet. You can see various tweets on a timeline where there is a list of recent ones on the home page. The people who follow one another are known as "tweeps."
The most popular Twitter content is known as trending topics. They appear as links on the Twitter homepage and are on the left side. These topics are the hot discussions on Twitter at any given time. A few examples would be celebrities, sporting events, movies or television series. You can click on one of the trend hashtags to read the most popular tweets on the subject. These are the basics for twitter for dummies.
