I recently joined Twitter! I know, I'm a little behind the game.
The reason I haven't signed up before was that I didn't get twitter.
The whole thing didn't make sense!
Then I read a little article that explained twitter in my kind of language. Basic.
So for all you your tweeting pro's please ignore my sillly explanation.
This is by no means the full twitter low down.
Just a little synopsis for anyone who may be in that same boat I was.
my twitter interpretation 101:
Twitter is like one big giant party.
Everyone is in the same room.
When you tweet you are talking loud enough for everyone to hear.
When you want to talk to the person standing right next to you, or whisper in someones ear you add their name. You mention them. You do that by adding their twitter name.
Example: @keylimedigital this is a silly little explanation!Keep in mind, whenever you are having a conversation at a party, anyone could be listening.
Now lets say you want to talk to someone privately.
You need to talk to them in the hall. You add a "d" before their twitter name to talk to them directly.
Example: d @keylimedigital you are crazy!And there you go, enjoy the party! Be Social! Tweet Tweet!
