How to use Twitter: Basics
Here, we will introduce what you can do with Twitter by dividing it into basics and applications.
First, review the basics of the basics
The basics of Twitter is to follow the account you want to read follow tweets (posts). Tweets from the accounts you follow will be displayed on a basic screen called the timeline. People who follow are called “followers”.
Posting characters, images, videos, etc. by yourself is called “tweet”. Tap the round light blue button at the bottom right of the timeline to open the tweet input screen.
Tweets are also called “tweets,” so feel free to tweet what you think, see, or experience just like a tweet.
The reply to each user’s tweet is called “reply”. You can enter a reply by tapping the frame below the tweet. By replying, you can send a message to the other user.
The reply message is public and visible to everyone, so if you send a personal message or a message that you don’t like, it will catch the eye of a third party and lead to unexpected results. There is a possibility of becoming. It’s important to remember that there are people beyond the screen.
As the name suggests, “Like” expresses the feeling that you like a tweet. You can tap the heart button below the tweet to like it, and tap it again to unlike it.
Some people use the likes instead of notes because they can be viewed by themselves and others.
If you want to display a retweet tweet as your own tweet, you can display it at the top of your tweet by tapping the retweet button below the tweet. This allows you to share the tweets you are interested in. You can retweet your own tweets as well as others’ tweets.
When you tap the retweet button, you can choose between two methods: normal “retweet” that displays other people’s tweets as they are, and “retweet with comments”. If you want to share another person’s tweet as it is, you can use it like a normal retweet, and if you want to add something to share, you can add a comment and use it like a retweet.
Retweets are useful, for example, when you want to share a live or event you want to go to with your followers, or when you want to share tweets, images, articles, etc. that you find cute or interesting.
Direct message (DM) Direct message (DM)
allows you to send and receive messages in a form that can be displayed only to specific users, instead of exchanging on the timeline. For users who are allowed to send direct messages, a DM button will be displayed on the right side of the profile image, and you can tap it to display the DM input screen.
For permission to send direct messages, if you turn on “Settings & Privacy” → “Privacy & Security Settings” → “Receive messages from all accounts”, you can receive direct messages regardless of whether you follow or not. I will. If you turn it off, you will not be able to receive direct messages from users you do not follow.
Replacing this with the other user means that you need to “get the other person to follow you” to send a direct message to the user who has the setting turned off.
The list function is a function that allows you to create a new timeline that displays only the tweets of the set user, in addition to the basic timeline (where you can list the tweets of the users you are following).
Depending on your ingenuity, Twitter will become more convenient, such as creating a list that summarizes only friends you have actually met, or a list that allows you to obtain information on specific fields such as music / fashion.
“Hashtag” is a method to make the wording function as a tag by inputting the wording after “#”.
By tapping the hashtag, you will be able to list other posts with the same hashtag. It may be used to reflect Twitter comments in the program by using a common hashtag in live TV and radio programs. Effective use of hashtags will expand the world of Twitter.
Twitter is a treasure trove of information, with users around the world tweeting various things in real time. The search function allows you to gather a wide range of opinions and information about your area of interest. On the contrary, your tweets will be seen by many users.
“Moment” is to collect and edit tweets from various people and media. You can take up various opinions on a specific topic or theme, create it as if you were editing a magazine, or browse the moments created by others.
