Have you seen the blue silhouette of a bird?
Just like Facebook, Twitter is just an additional means of communication. Brands can target specific keywords and areas specific to their business to engage with their online community. Twitter has a much quicker pace than Facebook and conversations will be more concise and straight forward, requiring a quick response time.
How do I tweet?
For starters, a Tweet is a short message consisting of 140 characters or less. So far we've come across four different types of Tweets:
Within a Tweet, you can talk directly to a person by "mentioning" their Twitter handle with an @ symbol. If you come across a great Tweet that you'd like to share without altering any of the text, you would Retweet it. If you would like to alter the text, it would then become a Modified Tweet. A Reply is your follow-up answer to someone else's Tweet.
