Social Media Seminar: twitter & facebook

Slutzker Center for International Services

What is Twitter?
 Twitter is a social networking site that helps connect you to

what/who you find interesting.
 You share your thoughts on the site by Tweeting; each

Tweet is 140 characters in length.
 Twitter has over 300 million users ranging from students,

professors, businesses, news reporters, celebrities, etc…

Why Use Twitter?
 “The SMS of the Internet.”
 It is a very innovative and fast way to follow the rest of

the world.
 You can “tweet” updates, location, photos, videos,

interesting articles, etc…
 Read the latest headlines from your home-country by

following news agencies, reporters, journalists…

Warnings about Twitter?
 Tweets are publicly visible by default but senders can

restrict message delivery to just their followers
 Twitter allows users the ability to update their profile

by using their mobile phone either by text messaging or by apps released for certain smartphones / tablets. (you may have to pay)
