Sizing and uploading
Why add a Bio?
1.Go to http://twitter.com and find the sign up box.

2.Add your avatar: whether it be a picture of you or a cartoon image.

3.Adding your avatar gets you on average 10x more followers.
1.You use the @ symbol when you want to tweet to someone directly i.e. @reply @mention

2. If you are re-tweeting from someone else, then give them the credit by adding them to the post with an @ symbol.
Replying to Stephen Fry would be @stephenfry
What do they mean?
1.A hashtag (#symbol+word or phrase) can be added to your tweet making it easier to search for which increases your chances of creating a trending topic.

2.To add a hashtag just type the # (symbol) plus a word or phrase into your tweet.

3.Do not over #spam #with #hashtags. Over tagging your tweets with hashtags will only overcrowd your tweets. Only hashtag on relevant topics.
bio and avatar
1.Adding a bio will help personalise your twitter experience. Your bio will give people an insight into your background, interests and outlook.

Finding resources and other useful information.
Book recommendations, teaching tools and research from other students from other Colleges and Universities.
With information changing on a constantly steady pace, what was up to date one week may very well be obsolete the next.
Getting involved in discussions on twitter is a great way to be informed on up to date information, new topics on your relevant subject and a new way to improve communication skills online.
Evaluate sources

If you’re looking at sources of information for your paper but aren’t
sure about the quality of the information you have at your disposal, share your resources with fellow students and ask for feedback. You can get confirmation that you are on the right track or lead to better sources of information.

Clear your doubts

If you are given a topic which is not so familiar to you, you will be in a dilemma of how to approach or how to start with it. If Twitter is available, no need to worry. Just tweet a question with proper hashtags and see the response. If you are having a good number of followers, your paper will almost be completed but don’t be shy of asking your followers to re-tweet your request. Most people are ready to help you by contributing their valuable views.
Rule 1
rule 2
rule 3
Always remember to follow industry professionals that are relevant to the course you are studying.
Safety comes first. When online working on any networking site you need to make sure you are careful who you meet.

Only follow friends you know and follow industry professionals that are reputable.

Proofread your tweets. The amount of typos in 140 characters is mind blowing.
rule 4
Double-check your links to make sure they work prior to tweeting. Having to delete and then re-tweet your information can become stress and time consuming.
rule 5
See a tweet with content that you'd like to check out later? Many Twitter apps have an "E-mail Tweet" option. Maximize efficiency by using your inbox as your personal "to-do" list. Also, “Favorite” a tweet for later.
