If you have heard of Twitter, you have probably signed up for an account. Stop. You had no idea what to do and did not understand those jargon!
We will try to cover the basics of Twitter in very simple terms. So,
what is Twitter?
It is an information network. Information shared on this network is 140 character long and known as tweets.
How useful is Twitter?
Twitter has a wealth of real-time information which are delivered right on your device. Although you would only see selected information delivered on your device, you have unlimited opportunities to search and find interesting topics and get real-time updates on the topic.
Three actions used most often on Twitter are read, discover and write.
Read – We read tweets from your followers (a Twitter user to whom you are subscribed to seeing their tweets on your device).
Discover – We search for a topic of your interest and drill down to discover more information.
Write – When we found something useful content then we will write as a tweet with 140 (or less) character.
