Twitter is a service for friends, family, co–workers, companies and organizations to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing? It is also used to communicate a thought you may be having or a link to a website, blog, photo or video you like.
In order to receive updates from individuals into your "Tweetstream", you need to sign-up for a free account. then visit the pages of the people you're interested in and click the "Follow" button below their photo.
What is a Tweet?
A tweet is a post or status update on Twitter.
What is ReTweeting?
“RT” or “ReTweeting” is simply taking a Twitter post from someone else and forwarding (rebroadcasting) it to your followers.
When someone asks you to ReTweet something, they’re asking you to copy what they’ve just sent and post the same text as your own update.
Basically, you’re being asked to forward the text along to your own followers.
