Sending your own Tweets is the best way to get involved on Twitter. It couldn’t be easier!
How to Tweet
At the top of your own Twitter home page, you’ll see a box labelled What’s Happening?
Click in the box and it will expand, ready for you to type your Tweet:
You’ll notice a counter next to the Tweet button. This tells you how many characters you have left. Tweets can be a maximum of 140 characters long. This can include links to web sites, hashtags or any other characters you want to write. As you type, the counter will count down telling you how many character you have left to use.
When you are ready to send your Tweet, click the Tweet button in the bottom right hand corner.
You can also add pictures to your Tweet by clicking the Add photo or Media button – though this will use up some of your available characters by inserting the link to the uploaded picture. The counter will keep you up to date about how many characters you have left in your Tweet.
