Tech Tip Tuesday – #010 – Advanced Interaction in Twitter
Today, we learn all about “at-mentions”, “hashtags”, and “direct messages”. If you missed last week’s Introduction to Twitter, be sure to check that out first to get caught up. Twitter’s basic communication building blocks are:
- At Mentions (@UserName) – This is where you refer to someone publicly. They see the notification – and so does anyone else.
- Hashtags (#ExampleSubject) – Hashtags turn text into searchable, clickable terms. Click on a hashtag to see what others are saying about the subject, or create your own!
- Direct Messages (Click on Messages Tab) – These are one-on-one conversations between you and another user. The rest of Twitter can’t see it.
Sound fun? It is. Jump over to Twitter and give it a try!
