The Lowdown on Twitter
Now, I’m sure during setup you chose to follow The Dating Divas (@DatingDivas) but, you can also find people and sites you’d like to follow by searching in the top bar seen in the yellow circle. Highlighted on the left, in the green circle, are suggestions from Twitter of people you may want to follow. These suggestions may be based on other people and sites you are already following!
2 Quick Tips for Understanding Twitter:
1. The @ symbol you see is given to everyone as part of your username. For example, our username is @DatingDivas. If we were to tweet a question, you could respond to us by typing our username into your tweet and then answering the question. That way, all your followers would understand who you are directing your response to & WE would see it as well.
2. HASHTAGS! Oh my! You probably see these pop up all the time during your favorite TV shows. If you were to type that hashtag, as seen on TV, into the search bar, you would be able to see all the tweets people are making in reference to that show. OR for example, if you searched #datenight in the the search bar, you might just see US!!! Basically, hashtags help you follow specific topics more closely!
Clear as mud?! Oh, I’m just kidding! Get started and before you know it, you’ll be a tweeting expert. It is far too much fun and a great way to keep up with all your favorite websites and people! If you haven’t joined Pinterest or have any start up questions, be sure to check out Robin’s for the 411 on Pinterest & Julie’s for the 411 on Google+!
