Using And Dealing With Twitter




    Today, Twitter is a social website used by absolutely millions of
    people to send messages to groups and friends every day. It has
    become one of the hottest social networks on the Internet today with
    thousand of new people signing up on a daily basis. This new
    phenomenon, ranks right up there with Facebook and LinkedIn for
    social contact and social media marketing. Today, companies are
    using this information to keep their friends, families, and customer
    base up to date on what is happening in their lives, families, and
    business ventures.

    Twitter has long since considered itself to be one of the top
    communication systems for exchanging quick little "blurbs" of
    information with those you wish to keep in touch with. This short and
    direct communication has become known as "Tweets", or short form
    messaging system, that allows a connected individual to share and
    listen to what is happening to and with the people their surround
    themselves with.

    As Twitter has evolved it has become a communication device that
    provides many platforms for communication, but mainly
    communication on Twitter is done through posts, or "tweets", which
    are restricted to less than approximately 140 characters in length.
    Using Twitter, members can keep people updated, as well as follow
    updates from other members. Today, tweets are used for more than
    just updates; they are also used to discuss hot topics, videos, music,
    and events happening in the daily news.

    One of the bonus features of Twitter is the ability to "Retweet". This
    enables users to share things like tweets, links, and other little gems

    that they pick up from others who also use Twitter. New users often
    do not understand the benefit of retweets, but after a little time on
    Twitter they soon learn the value of retweets and set out to share as
    much as possible.

    To retweet the user has a special set of tools available that make it
    easier to do. Some of those tools include copy and paste so you can
    share tweets themselves with others. When users do this, because
    they are using someone else's information, the retweet is usually
    followed by an "RT", short for retweet, as well as the original creator's
    name. So, if you were to retweet the following sentence from
    - SueSmith- , your retweet would look like this:

    The ipod I bought was great and I would recommend it

    As a rule people track, or follow, the most popular retweets on Twitter
    by using one of the following methods:

    Retweetradar - a tool for tracking and bringing to the forefront the
    most popular content on Twitter - right now, today, or yesterday.

    Retweetlist - this tool lets you track the most popular links that are
    being retweeted by other users on Twitter. You will note that it also
    keeps track of the accounts that are retweeted the most.

    Tweetnmeme - this is a tool that records and keeps score on the
    number of retweeted Urls and stories on Twitter and then places the
    ones that receive the most retweets on the front page of Tweetmeme,
    which if selected can be broken down into categories - i.e.: business,
    sports, etc.

    Another great thing about Twitter is that all your friends and tweets
    can appear on your desktop and retweets only take two simple clicks
    - one to create the retweet and one to post it.
