I wanted to put together a quick 5-minute presentation on the basics of a tweet so I would have it handy for those times when I was talking to friends and colleagues who were new to Twitter. This is what I came up with.
Note: The “@” must be the first character in a tweet for it to be an @ reply. If you want to @ reply someone, but want all followers to see it, start your tweet with a period. For example: .@theCMEguy You are totally awesome!
Note: Again, silly they don’t have a normal “Edit & RT” option. The “Quote Tweet” option is OK, but it’s harder to read. I added the “>>” myself to easier distinguish between my comments and the original tweet.
