Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging website that allows users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are limited to 140 characters and can include bitly links, which are shortened URLs. The key to effectively using Twitter is to find and follow other people who post interesting items.

Retweet (RT) — A way to share interesting tweets from other users. Example: “RT @BillGates This website is amazing.”
Direct Message (DM) — A private message you send to another Twitter user who is following you. A DM can only be seen by that specific user and is not searchable. DMs are a great way to connect with other users in a personal way.
