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.
Aciclovir online MOST COMMON TWITTER TERMS:
@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:
Twitter, Politics, & The Future of Apple: Tech News on Studio 4... April 10, 2011 | TechLinz
Building a quality twitter follow-list February 24, 2010 | TechLinz
TechTalk on Twitter (Global TV) November 7, 2009 | TechLinz
