There are five main areas within Twitter.


Home is where you view Tweets from the people you have chosen to follow. It’s your personal collection of Tweets, featuring the latest news, commentary and information from the sources you care about. Photos, videos and conversations are embedded directly in Tweets so you can see the whole story at a glance. And now everything in Home will appear consistently across computers, iPhones, and Android mobile phones.


The Connect section is where you get in on the conversation. It’s the place to see who has followed or mentioned you, reTweeted or favorited one of your Tweets.


Discover lets you tap into a stream of useful and entertaining information, customised just for you. When you use Discover, you’ll see results reflecting your interests - based on your current location, what you follow and what’s happening in the world. As you use Twitter more, Discover gets even better at serving up more content just for you.


This is your profile, where you enter a brief description about yourself - as much or as little as you wish. If you want others to find you when seeking people with a particular skill or interest then the inclusion of appropriate keywords is important. If there is very little specified about someone then it is unlikely that they will get many followers and, of course, it is impossible to make any judgement as to how reliable what they’re saying may be.


This is the button that you would click on or press to compose a Tweet. You can use up to 140 characters. Links to web site addresses can be shortened automatically by Twitter so they do not use as many characters. There are further buttons to add either links to websites, on-line material or images that can be uploaded from your computer or phone.
