what is twitter
Twitter is a social networking platform that allows users to share short, 170-character messages called “tweets.” Tweets can include text, photos, videos, and links to websites. Twitter users can also @mention other users in their tweets, which sends a notification to that user. Twitter is a public platform, which means that anyone can view tweets from any user, even if they don’t have a Twitter account.
Although tweets are publicly visible by default, users can choose to make their tweets private so that only approved followers can view them. Twitter is free to use and is available on the web, as well as on mobile devices.
How to create a Twitter account
Creating a Twitter account is easy and only takes a few minutes. First, go totwitter.com and enter your name, phone number, and a password. You will then be asked to confirm your phone number via text message. Once you have done that, you will be able to choose a username (which can be changed later) and add a profile photo.
Next, you will be asked to select some interests so that Twitter can suggest people for you to follow. Finally, you will be given the option to import your contacts from other platforms such as Gmail or Facebook. Once you have completed all of these steps, you will have successfully created a Twitter account!
How to find people to follow on Twitter
One of the best ways to find interesting people to follow is to browse the lists of people followed by people you already know and trust. Chances are, if they’re following someone interesting, you will be too. You can also use Twitter’s search function to find people who are talking about topics that interest you. Simply enter a keyword or phrase into the search bar and scroll through the results until you find someone whose tweets pique your interest.
Finally, don’t be afraid to follow celebrities, companies, or other public figures that you admire. While you may not get a personal response from them, their tweets can provide valuable insights or simply entertain you. With a little effort, you can quickly build up a list of diverse and interesting people to follow on Twitter.
