Do not let Twitter overwhelm you. Just follow these simple tips and you will be tweeting away in no time.
General tips: Pick a hashtag.
What is a hashtag? – Individuals use the hashtag symbol, #, before a word or a phrase in their tweets. The hashtag helps spread information and as well has keeping it organized. A tweet with a hashtag in it immediately becomes categorized on Twitter. Embrace it! Example: Tonight is the #VMA, can’t wait to watch #TaylorSwift.

Twitter is a tool to interconnect. By retweeting others, one is doing just that. Twitip explains that tweeting has an effect on everyone and that Twitter thrives on interconnectivity. Once a tweet gets a certain number of retweets, it becomes a trending tweet. The popular tweets are articles and interesting stories in the Twitter community.
Understand the lingo
Like any language it is always vital to understand what is being said. Edudemic has a great A-Z dictionary on Twitter’s dictionary of hashtags.
Simplicity is best
