Some Important Twitter Vernacular: Twitter Terminology:

twitter terminologyBefore we go any further, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the most common Twitter terminology as it will be used throughout this site to describe the process of Twitter marketing.

Handle. A user’s Twitter name (e.g., hollisthomases).

Tweet. The message, consisting of 140 or fewer characters, sent by a Twitter user. On Twitter, these tweets are tracked in your user profile as Tweets.

Tweeting or Twittering. The act of composing and sending a message.

Retweet (RT). When someone forwards your tweet, or retweets, they put RT in front of it to give you proper credit.

@ reply. The @ symbol directly in front of someone’s name (@hollisthomases) indicates you’re sending them a public message or responding to a message they sent you. It’s a publicly visible type of Twitter messaging between two users or more.

Direct message (DM). A DM sends a private message to another Twitter user. In order for them to receive this private message, they need to be following you. In order for you to receive a DM back, you need to be following them. To send a DM, use “D,” plus a space, plus the recipient’s Twitter handle. Do not use the @ symbol when you send a DM.

Tweep. A nickname used to describe a Twitter user. (Tweep is shorter name than Twitterer and originates from the terms “Twitter” and “people,” or “peeps.”) Tweeps describes more than one tweep.

Follower. Someone who has opted in to receive your tweets in their Twitter Steam.

Following. Those who you have opted in to receive tweets from.

Friend. When a mutual Follower/Following relationship exists between two users.

Twitterverse. Describes the Twitter community at large—i.e., the Twitter universe.

Hashtag. The hashtag is a way of identifying a tweet related to a particular subject. The hashtag protocol is the hash or pound sign (#) directly followed by the word, words, or characters someone has assigned to that subject—the fewer characters, the better.
