How to Use Twitter

Twitter is one of my favorite social platforms. It is really simple and fun to use. Now there are all kinds of add ons and products that help twitter users extent the simple service that is twitter but in right now I am just going to cover the basic functions of twitter.


Twitter is a text based service. This means that you broadcast text messages to people who have signed up to receive your messages. You can do this two ways. First you can send out a broadcast to all of your followers.  You type your message into this:

As you can see there is a number 140 in the picture.  140 is the number of characters you are limited to when sending messages on twitter.

The second way to send messages is a “Direct Message” this is similar to email.  It is a message that is sent between you and one other person.  These messages are also limited to 140 characters.

I think twitter is so great because there is no room for formality.  You must get right to the point.  It is a great way to make new friends fast.

One of my favorite things about twitter is learning.  Once you add the people you like you get to learn from them every day.  I have learned so much from following people.  Some of my favorite people to follow in the finance world are
