I hope that you have a little understanding into Twitter. Twitter can also be used by employers to recruit, and by people looking for jobs. If you are looking for work, find openings by following people or companies you would like to work for. Employers post Tweets for highly qualified people, and HR department heads look through Twitter to see if there are any potential candidates for their positions.
*Tweet - an incoming or outgoing message.
*Following - Anyone (person or company) that you are interested in and clicked follow on their home page.
*Followers - Anyone that has clicked follow on your home page and is following you.
*Direct Message - Message that are private. They don't appear on your page or in searches. Users can send or receive direct messages on anyone they are following or any of their followers.
*Apps - There are many apps (applications) that are out on the web for Twitter. Just google Twitter Apps and take a look to see if any would be helpful to you. They are generally easy to install and set up. If you want an opinion of any particular app, ask about it on a Tweet!
Hash Tag (#) - These are used to categorize topics on Twitter. Click on one when you see it and you will see a list of Tweets on the subject that hash tag is attached to.
