Create a Twitter AccountNO!

Copyright 2016 Interactive Connections1- if you tailor twitter based on recent web visits- theyre tracking your info (generally companies do this for 2 reasons- 1 to give you a more personalized (better) experience and 2- gather marketing info. Price isnt free now its info instead of $. If you want the most security, dont click this. 2- remember your name/username/email can be used as search and name/username are public.3- when you create account, youll get an email to click for verification.

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsTwitter = a micro social networking site

Tweet = 140 character update. Public by default! Can include photos, links, etc.Defining Terms


Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsYou go on twitter to send tweets. You do not twitter or go twittering 13

Following = the people who could show up in your newsfeed

Followers = the people who want to hear what you tweetDefining Terms

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsObvious, I think! Not just about numbers, but they give you an idea of how active a person is14

Hashtag= the numbers symbol (#) that allows conversation on a topic

Class hashtag = #DDBC2016

Defining Terms

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsDirect Command = (@username) that allows you to tweet directly to a person

Example = @rmanlandro

Defining Terms

Copyright 2016 Interactive Connections


Retweet (RT) = sending someone elses tweet out to your followers (they get credit)

Defining Terms

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsSymbol notes its a retweet- your name is smaller and the original photo / username shows upGood way to find / promote other twitter accounts17

Twitter Chat = interactive conversations on a specific topic at a specific time. Uses hashtag

Defining Terms

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsThis is both account username and hashtag- not always so.Also, this is established, repeating chat- not always so Can be confusing to participate in, but if youre up to the challenge- lots of great people and resources.18

News Feed = your dynamic personalized home page. Depends on time, day you log in and who youre following

Where are these tweets you speak of?

Copyright 2016 Interactive ConnectionsSo each persons is different. HOME page is different than PROFILE page.This screenshot is from a PC will be different for Apple or mobile devices.


Navigation Bar
