Twitter is a social platform like any other. Twitter is one to text your thoughts in 140 characters. You can share your stories, photo’s, gif’s, and any other thing social media has to offer.
Sharing your stories can be good for your stats, but mostly your story could be valuable for your readers. Also, Twitter has those functions to use
Features of Twitter
Like every social media, Twitter also has features to use. To me, it is a simple social media to use, not really complicated.
Tweet of 140 characters
The main feature is to place your thought into a post of 140 characters. It is called a Tweet. You can post anything you like.
Add another Tweet
When you wrote your main Tweet, you can add another Tweet to make a whole conversation with another 140 characters.
Hashtags in Tweets
In every Tweet, you can use hashtags just like any other social media. Use the right hashtag to keep up your conversation, or build an audience.
Photo’s, video’s, and GIF’s
You can add a photo, video, or GIF’s to your Tweet to make it fun, or share anything you love that is visual.
Another great feature is the Poll feature. You can add up to four options. Just see what your audience like you to share, or if you don’t know what to do, add those options you think are valuable.
One of those features is sharing your location to get new audiences all over the globe. This is important when you have a business.
Record your post
The new feature is to record your post to share your thoughts or share the business. It is easier than typing all the text.
One of the newest features is to Fleet your Tweet, your photo, GIF, or video, tag your friends, or anything like that, and use the hashtags. This is the same as a story on Instagram or Facebook.
Like a Tweet
What is important to build an audience, is to like a Tweet that is important to what you love, or that matters to you.
A retweet is when you want to Tweet the same as you wrote earlier, or simply someone else's tweet, as this might be important to you, or your audience.
The reply function is when you want to engage in your audience, or simply your input in someone else’s tweet could be valuable.
