Twitter is an online social networking and micro-blogging that allows users to send posts that are 140 characters and less. This allows people to provide small updates on what they are doing. Users can choose to 'follow' others, in effect this means that you have subscribed to the 'tweets' that that person sends. These will appear on your twitter page. You also have the choice to send a message directly to someone you are following.

There are a few things to know about twitter before you start using it.
Tweet - a Tweet is a post that someone makes using Twitter

Retweet - Retweeting (or RT) allows users to share the best tweets they find with others.
Using the @ sign and then the users username you are in effect tweeting to them and in this case you are giving them credit by retweeting their message to your followers.
Click here for an example:
 
#Hashtag (#) - The hashtag is used as a part of the tweet where users put a topic to do with their post after the #.
The hashtag will organise your tweet into the topic of apple. This helps organise everybody's tweets into trending topics and also makes them a lot easier to find.
