Hello everyone! We continue to prepare for the marathon 2010. Today we will work with Twitter. com . Everyone is probably already familiar with Twitter. However, we created a separate lesson for him, because Twitter is an integral part of the marathon. It allows you to be instantly aware of all the events of the Challange season. Today your lesson is registration and familiarity with microblogging Twitter .
As we promised, this lesson will take no more than 30 minutes of your time. You can watch it on our TV channel (lesson number 1). This lesson is very simple and you do it in no time.
The most important thing you need to know about Twitter is that we use Twitter to know what is happening on the Challenge. And the very first thing we will do if something happens at the marathon is to let you know via Twitter.
To start creating your Twitter account. com, click on Sign Up . A simple form opens in which you need to enter your data. I note here that in the field Username enter your nickname (nickname).
After the end of registration, Twitter will offer you to select people to follow (follow). This is not worth doing. At least at this stage of the season. So you will not be entangled in a bunch of people who will leave their messages. Follow the people you can and later.
After the registration is completed, a letter will be sent to the e-mail box asking you to confirm the registration. Click on the link in the letter and voila, you are a full-fledged tweeter.
When you sign in to your account, you will see a page like this. Design, of course, your page will be different. It can be changed in the settings.
There is a small menu at the top of the page. Find Find People (search for people).
Obviously, the first person you want to find is me. Type in Ed Dale and press Enter.
As a result of the search, you can see a lot of different Ed Deiles. Push me on the photo and on Ed_Dale . Then click on the Follow button.
You can also follow our marathon Challenge .
There are some more interesting and useful things that I want to draw your attention to.
We look when others mention you
On the right sidebar is your nickname. On my page this is @Ed_Dale . If I click on it, a page will open on which I will see everyone who mentioned me in their posts. This is a very democratic feature. So, anyone can communicate with me (with you) and I will know who sent me the message.
How to reply to the sent message? To do this, in the What's happening? field, enter the addressee's nickname and put the @ symbol in front of it. Then click the Tweet button. Message sent.
One of the most remarkable things on Twitter is the use of hashtags. They are denoted by the symbol # . Hashtags gather around themselves specific topics and topics. The official hashtag of the marathon is # tc10. They are created not just like that, but for a fee.
If I want to find all the messages marked with the # 30dc tag, then just type in the search field # 30dc, click on the lens icon and that's it. Search result h can save. It will fit on the sidebar. Later, I can always watch the result on the desired topic in real mode.
That's all. Successful registration and use of Twitter.
