The Language of Twitter -

The Language of Twitter

People often ask me about Twitter and how to interpret the symbols they see on twitter feeds. So I’m writing this post to give my fellow business peeps a quick tutorial on the language of twitter.
@twittername (example: @techlinz) : When you see the @ symbol before a name, the post is directed to a specific person. For example:
@techlinz when is the #f5expo?

Hashtags (example: #f5expo): By inserting a hashtag (#) before a keyword , you can group posts together with similar content. In this example, the keyword is F5expo and every time our company posts (tweets) about our upcoming expo, we include this hashtag – #f5expo. People interested in updates from the F5expo, can create a saved search on their twitter account or from their mobile twitter application so that they stay in the loop.

Below is an example of a search for #socialmedia. People interested in reading posts related to social media, can save a search for #socialmedia. In essence, your creating (or contributing) to a feed on a specific subject every time you use a hashtag in your post.

Note: Results from searches on twitter will query the entire twitter database, not Cytotec online just the posts from the people you follow ;)

D + post: Means you are sending someone a DIRECT MESSAGE and it will not be posted publicly to your followers. Only the recipient will see it on their feed. Example: D @techlinz

RT @username: This is a RETWEET. It means the message has been forwarded. Use this if you like what someone has said and you want to re-tweet it out to your followers.

#followfriday (or #ff for short) – when you see this in a post with twitter names, the “tweeter” is recommending that you follow these people. For example:

  1. Hi Lindsay,

    Thank you for the #hashtag tip. It has allowed me to attract Law of Attraction friends :)


  2. Starting new to twitter may be daunting but when you genuinely use it as the compelling marketing tool it can be it will certainly pay off in the long run. I consider twitter is a great way to drive traffic to your website.

  3. Somebody necessarily lend a hand to make seriously posts I would state. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and up to now? I surprised with the analysis you made to make this actual post incredible. Wonderful task!
