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.

How to record a mobile phone call (with App for Android Smartphone)

how to record a call

Imagine you are working on an important work project with other people and you often receive phone calls with suggestions and ideas on what doing. In these cases you should always have a pen and paper at your fingertips but sometimes it’s not possible. For this reason you could record calls directly so you will be able to play back it calmly when you have more free time and draw from it all information you need.

You have not to be a secret agent to do it. You have to do simply an Android smartphone to record all the calls you make or receive on your line and save them as an MP3 file. In this way you can have them always on hand and listen them again every time you want.
