- Homefeed - What you see when you first open the twitter app.
- Follow - Like friending in other apps, but the other person doesn't have to reciprocate. You will be following them unless they block you.
Their updates will appear in your Home timeline.
Click Following on your profile or home page to see who you've followed, displayed in a following list. You can unfollow accounts from that page if you don't want to follow them anymore.
To follow someone click search and enter their TwitterName e.g.@MyName or full name. Then click follow.
By default, Twitter sends you an email to let you know when someone new follows you. Set up your email preferences to notify you when you have a new follower or to turn these notifications off.
- TwitterName @:
An @ or a mention, is when you include somebody's @twittername in the tweet.
By putting another person's username at the start of a statement, it limits who sees it.
- Hashtags # before a keyword
Clicking or tapping on a hashtagged word in any message shows you other Tweets that include that hashtag.
Type a hashtagged keyword in the search bar to discover content and accounts.
