How can you tweet?
Creating an account is just a beginning. You have to learn what you have to do on twitter. I mean if you are a lay man then you will find it a little bit hard to understand what you have to do next.
Twitter is like a new age live newspaper. You will get all the updates of world once you add some people in your following list. It can be your friends, celebrities, news channels, magazines, TV shows anything that fascinates you and you want to know the latest updates add them. The minute you will add them you will see that different tweets have started appearing on your page. That’s nice right! You are now connected with a specific group of people you want to be with or at least tweet with.
Let’s put it this way, tweeting is more like a status update you do in facebook. Your posts are seen by your contact list only. In twitter ‘followers’ are equivalent to ‘friends’ in facebook and ‘following’ is equivalent to ‘like a page’. You do not know what you should write about. Well, it’s simple, tweet about a cereal you ate in breakfast or Monday blues syndrome or current affairs or a joke. You can also retweet other people’s tweets. For a starter this also helps in getting used to of using twitter.
See this does make things a little easier. Now update your status or shall I say start tweeting!! Twitter is one of the fastest growing social networking apps. It has at least around.
