The Mystery of How to Use Twitter Unveiled

Curious to learn how to use Twitter? Sometimes I wonder if Twitter should be classified as a foreign language? If you are anything like me your first look at twitter was a bit confusing. There were crazy symbols used all over the place. People would write in hashtags and at signs. Are they even talking?

So I decided to break this down into simple easy to understand language.

The mystery of how to use Twitter is unveiled

1.The at sign @.

Well this can be used in two different ways. If you see it at the beginning of a post is means it is a direct message that only you and the other person see.

ex. @thechefkarina – Thanks for the awesome post!  (only I would get this post)

If you see it at the end of a post it means we are giving you credit for the post.

2. The hashtag #

I am sure you are starting to see this every where. I know that during the debates twitter was the highest active social site for commenting. The hashtag allows you to follow a trend or create a searchable topic.

Did you know that you can create and own your own hashtag? Check out Hashtag.org to see how many people are using your hashtag.

You can also have a #chat. You can create your hashtag and then invite people at a specific time and day to jump in on the conversation. What a great way to engage your fans and have a little fun. You can always find me at #bloghelp or #ChefKatrina

A few words of caution are needed for how to use Twitter

1. Don’t write in a #crazy #over #used #hashtag writing. It is annoying and really makes it hard for people to read. I know you are trying to target for key hashtags but that style of writing will get you banned from my twitter account.

2. Get a picture for your twitter account. Nobody likes to follow an egghead. 🙂
