Social media is huge in our world today, but which site is the biggest? Which one is the best? Some of that is up to the user, but personally I prefer to use a couple of different social media sites.
Tweeting is a little different at first, but after a while it’s pretty simple to use. The key is just getting the hang of it. Just a few tips: if you want someone specific to see your tweet, you have to use the @ sign and their username. Hashtags (this sign #) are for catching the attention of non-followers.
For example, if in my tweet I put #yolo, people can search #yolo, and all tweets including #yolo will come up, including mine.
“Sub-tweeting” is when a person tweets about someone without saying exactly who it is.
The site that I use most often is Twitter. Most people our age have a Twitter account. Twitter is extremely popular for high school students, and we use it frequently. A lot of high school students have a Facebook, but quite a few have more active accounts on Twitter. So if you’re looking to keep up with the latest high school drama, Twitter’s your best bet.
I have to say the down-side of Twitter is the word limit. The character limit on Twitter is 140, which, isn’t really all that much. Tweets are typically very short and brief.
Like I said earlier, I prefer using several social media sites instead of just one, so over the next few weeks I’ll be reviewing more social media sites. Don’t forget to follow The Roar @lHSROAR!
