Twitter Quick Guide, Better to have before it goes public !

Celebrity updates n connection, increasing followers, rivalry in every celeb to get more followers !!
Now that Twitter with it's growing popularity is going public, still you find yourself alienated from the Microblogging site. Well here is a Quick guide that will help you to get to know Twitter Better:

That 140-character message sent out on Twitter. Also, the sound a small bird makes.

Find an account you like? Click "follow" to have their tweets show up in your feed.

Stands for retweet, or resubmitting someone else's tweet to your followers.

Hat Tip, means you are sharing a link or idea someone else shared first, so you're giving them credit. Not quite a retweet.

Direct Message, a private message sent to another user. You can send it only to people who follow you.

Add before someone's name to reply to them publicly. It's only shown in the feeds of those who follow both of you.

Unless you upload a profile photo, an egg will show up in its place. Often a sign of a spam account, or someone new to Twitter.

Hashtags are a way to make posts searchable by topic. Just insert in front of a word, but these days #-less words are indexed, too.

Follow Friday, Twitter tradition where users recommend other accounts that people should follow. Happens on Friday.

Popular topics people are talking about on Twitter at any given time, but not the most popular ever. Can change based on location.

Promoted tweet
Advertisements. Distinguished by an orange arrow and the word "Promoted" next to a tweet, trend or topic.
