To Tweet, or not to Tweet…….
So what is a Tweet? A tweet is a short message, of 140 characters or less, sent over the Twitter network. It is the Twitter message. Messages are public unless the person’s Profile is protected. Easy! Here are a few more bits of Twitter jargon:-
DM or direct tweet – a private message to you that only you and the sender can see, 140 characters. You can only DM users who are following you.
RT or retweet – a message that is repeated because someone thinks it particularly good or interesting to the people following them
# hashtags – are used to tag tweets with a theme or event eg #networking would be used so that everyone knows it’s related to networking and can following the conversations. This took me ages to understand!
