Twitter is one of the leading social networking sites on the Web. It enables its users to send and read messages called “tweets”. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user's profile page. Users may subscribe to other users' tweets — this is known as “following” and subscribers are known as “followers”. This course helps you understand how to set up a Twitter account and use the features of Twitter for social networking and micro-blogging, how to build up a social network and get connected with the right people, how to make lists, find out what is trending, what an advanced search is, and how to delete a tweet.
