“Watching from the outside, Twitter is like the dumbest thingyou’ve heard of: “Why would anyone want to tell others whatthey are doing in 140 characters?”And yet to dismiss Twitter is a mistake because it’s an incrediblypowerful tool for your personal learning and connecting withothers.”
(
Sue Waters
 
What is Twitter?
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicateand stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages.People write short updates, often called "tweets" of 140 characters orfewer. These messages are posted to your profile, sent toyourfollowers,and are searchable on Twitter search.
What does it mean to follow someone on Twitter?
Followingsomeone simply means receiving their Twitter updates. Whenyou follow someone, every time they post a new message, it will appearin your Twitter home page. New messages are added to your home pageas people post them, so you always get the updates in real time. Whenyou log in, you can see what the latest updates are.Twitter offers other ways to follow people too: you can get updates fromcertain people on yourphone!
What do I need to use it?
All you need to use Twitter is an internet connection or a mobilephone. Once you're in, type your first update into the web box.To sign up, you need a working email account and preferably one you canaccess from anywhere with an internet connection (eg web based emailsuch as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc)
