About the Twitter Company
The sound that birds make, like chirping.
Twitter:
Founded in 2006
by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Evan Williams and Biz Stone
"
Tweets
" are bursts of information that can only be
140 characters
long.
Dick Costolo, CEO
Inside a Tweet you’ll
see photos and
videos from people
you know or personal moments from
celebrities.

You can link to
news stories,
blogs, websites
and apps.
It's out there!
WHERE DO TWEETS APPEAR? WHO READS THEM?

Once you Tweet, it is publicly posted on your Twitter profile.
Everyone on twitter can read it
.
In addition, people can follow your stream of Tweets called a timeline so that they automatically appear in their own timelines.

It's important to protect your
identity
and
privacy.
How to use Twitter
How to use Twitter
GOOD THINGS, SMALL PACKAGES.
Every Tweet fits into a space that's under 140 characters. Just the right size for a big idea, a headline or a timely observation.
WHAT’S A #HASHTAG?
A
hashtag
is any word or phrase with the # symbol immediately in front of it. This symbol turns the word into a link that makes it easier to find and follow a conversation about that topic.
A FEW OF YOUR
FAVORITE
TWEETS
Favoriting sends a brief, positive notification back to the author that you liked their Tweet. Click the star to mark a Tweet as a favorite.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Your
@username
is your unique identity on Twitter. will use your @username to mention you in Tweets and to send you messages. We call this a
handle
.
How to use Twitter
LIGHTS, CAMERA, TWEET!
More than words can fit into a Tweet.
Images, videos and links now expand right in your Tweets to show the best of what you have to share.
WORTH A RETWEET
You can pass along someone's Tweet by clicking the
retweet
icon.

Retweeting is a lot like forwarding an email — you'll send along someone else's Tweet to all of your followers
INSTANT CONNECTION
Start a conversation with someone by
reply
ing to their Tweet. If you see an interesting Tweet, add your opinion by clicking the reply icon.
WHAT IS FOLLOWING?
Subscribing to someone’s stream of Tweets is called “following”. To start following someone, click the
Follow
button next to their name, and you’ll see their Tweets as soon as they post something new.
You don’t have to ask permission to follow someone. Anyone on Twitter can follow or unfollow anyone else at any time. This leads to something unexpected: open and fun conversations that get people talking.
Look at the tweet provided.

In your groups, try and identify as many 'twitter vocabulary words' as you can.

e.g. In this tweet we see a handle (username @), a hashtag..... etc
