Some Useful Sites
All Twitter posts have the 140 character limit, which you can see as you’re writing:
Use these shortcuts to communicate directly with other users or discuss broader topics:
#hashtags – (only work with public accounts) – put a “#” symbol next to a keyword to make it easier for people to follow a topic across all public accounts. Twitter will automatically convert these keywords into links. If you want to discuss a topic with a select group, keep in mind you’ll need to use a keyword that others aren’t using.
@replies – (only work with public accounts and reciprocal connections) – put an “@” symbol next to another twitter account username and Twitter will automatically add a link to their profile. These are public messages, but allow you to respond to individual people as you carry on a larger conversation.
RT – this is the accepted way to credit someone you want to quote directly. RT stands for “re-tweet” and you should also include an @username reply to the original poster, like this: [RT @username “put quote in quotation marks”]
