Twitter is all the rage these days. Every time you turn on the news you learn about some "tweet" someone famous has sent, or you hear about Twitter growing more and more in size with each passing day. If you are a veteran Twitter user, this is just regular news for you. If, however, you are new to the Twitter scene you may have no idea what anyone is talking about. That's where I come in.
So if you are interested in learning exactly what Twitter is and how to use it, read on. Twitter is the ever expanding social media network that lets you follow friends, family, celebrities, and various people, and also lets you send "tweets" out, which all of your friends and followers can see and respond to. You can also follow people and see their "tweets" as they happen, and comment on them and "tweet" back and forth. A "tweet" can best be described as a post, and a post can be anything from your thoughts, feelings, a picture, a video, a meme, news, or anything else.
There are millions upon millions of people on Twitter, so navigating through the vast network can be a little tricky. The very first thing you need to do, if you haven't already, is sign up for the Twitter service, which is free. All you need for this is an email address or a phone number. You can sign up from your computer or mobile device, and I recommend signing up from a computer. After you sign up, you will need to create your profile, find people to follow, and set your preferences. Creating your profile will require a profile picture, some basic information, and you will need to create your Twitter handle. After your profile is set up, you will then need to set your Twitter preferences. This is an extremely important step as failing to set your preferences correctly can lead to a very poor Twitter experience.
Once you have your profile all set up, now the fun can begin. First, you need to find all the people you want to follow. This is fairly simple, and I will have some suggestions for people you can follow, and how to find your friends and family. Once you have started "following" people, you can start tweeting!
