Twitter usage guide

Twitter has been established for more than ten years and is an established social media. Twitter was originally intended to be the chirping sound of birds, and it was extended to refer to words that are thought to be broken. At present, the most well-known imitator in China is Sina Weibo (in February 2017, the market value of the imitator of Sina Weibo has surpassed its imitators). Weibo has done a lot of localization work and is very popular in China. , But with the progress of the domestic "reversing" process, and even the trend of turning around and running wildly, the domestic platform of Weibo has become more and more unreliable, no matter whether Weibo is in your comfort zone, completely turn to Twitter or both Both of them are becoming more and more meaningful to use at the same time.

However, there are many differences between the use of Weibo and Twitter, and some of them are even confusing, so this guide is here.

For reasons that both you and I know, Twitter cannot be accessed directly, and some extra work needs to be done, which will not be expanded here.


Enter URL:

Full name: equivalent to a nickname, can be repeated with other people, and can be used in Chinese.

Mobile phone and mailbox: It is best not to use domestic mailboxes or mobile phones. If you are using the mailbox to register, you will be prompted to bind the phone in the second step. If there is no reliable (ie unmonitored) mobile phone number (such as Project Fi, Google Voice), click the small "Skip" at the bottom left to skip this step.

After registering in these two steps, the next step will let you choose a username:

Username: Enter your Twitter ID here. This ID is unique and cannot be repeated with others. It can only be in English and Arabic numerals. Can be modified.

For Weibo users, there is no difference between "user name" and "full name". The real ID is the string of numbers in your homepage URL. For example, my ID is 1947026242, no matter how my nickname changes,

The composition of a tweet

Twitter, that is, Twitter, Twitter. It is combined by a single Tweet support.

A tweet

Tweet, that is, tweet, tweet. It is the message sent by the user. The newly released message and the message replying to other people's Tweet are both a Tweet. Each Tweet can contain up to 140 letters or Chinese characters.

The 140-word limit originally originated from text messages. At that time, people could send tweets via text messages, so Twitter limited the number of words to 140 words. However, the 140 characters of Twitter and Sina Weibo’s 140 characters are slightly different. Twitter’s is calculated by half-width characters, while Sina Weibo is calculated by full-width characters, so you will find that some content is posted on Weibo. The word count is just now Okay, if you post it on Twitter, the word count is exceeded.

Every reply to others is also a tweet. In the past, when replying, it would automatically @ the original author in the tweet and count it into 140 words. Now Twitter has revised the product design, the above @ part will no longer be counted as 140 words, and URLs in tweets (like pictures, GIFs, videos) are no longer counted as 140 words.

Timeline: After following a certain number of people, you have a timeline of your own. This is equivalent to the "home page" of Weibo, which organizes the tweets of the users you follow with your own tweets. It is the most important viewing area during general swiping.

Replies (replies, comments)

Twitter and Weibo differ greatly in the form of replies.

Weibo is a form similar to forum posts. When the original Weibo (main post) is deleted, the comments (posts) below it will also disappear. At the same time, the owner of the original Weibo can delete any comments (posts) under the original Weibo (main post).

Twitter's reply is a completely different forum format, it is more flat. Every Tweet in Twitter is a separate tweet. It exists independently, has an independent URL, is not attached to the replied Tweet, and can be forwarded separately (Retweet). Even if the original Tweet is deleted, or you are not visible for other reasons (such as the author blocked you, sensitive content and your setting is to hide sensitive content), the reply Tweet will still exist and will not be affected. The owner of the original tweet also has no right to delete your comment on his tweet.

The replies of others generally do not appear on the timeline, but when you follow two people discussing in the form of replies on Twitter, you will see all their discussions on the timeline.

Retweet (RT, Retweet, Retweet, Retweet)

Retweet means forwarding, but unlike Sina Weibo, it can be implemented in multiple ways.

Official Retweet:

Click the button directly 🔁: The reposted Tweet will appear on your personal timeline as your tweet, and will also appear on the timeline of people who follow you.

Click the button 🔁 Write a comment at the same time: similar to clicking the button directly, the processing effect is exactly the same as that of Sina Weibo's "repost".

Folk Retweet:

The general format is: comment (optional)+RT+@[Original ID]+ original tweet content.

This is a long time ago that Twitter was not perfect and lacking in functions. The usage that users found out by themselves was supported by various third-party clients. This method is not recommended because it will lead to a series of malpractices such as disordered information structure and duplication of information. However, some people are using it this way, and if you see it, you need to know what is going on.

In special circumstances, if you see a tweet you want to repost, but the original tweet is locked, you can "force" forward the content in this way.

Like (Like, Favorite, Like)

Previously, this feature was called Favorite and the symbol was ⭐️, but later changed to ❤️ and renamed to Like.

Your favorite content is public, and others can view your favorite tweets in the "like" position on your personal homepage.


Putting # in front of words and phrases (without spaces) constitutes a label, which is usually used to organize the core topic of the Tweet.

The hashtag in Weibo uses two #s before and after to wrap a phrase, such as #iPhone8#, unlike Twitter, it’s in the form #iPhone8

Direct Message (DM)

One-to-one communication between users is similar to instant messaging, and the content of the exchange will not appear on the personal Timeline. The default setting of Twitter is: Only the people you follow can actively send you private messages, but it can also be changed to "Anyone".


Click on a person's or your own personal homepage (Profile), you can see:


Following: Following, people who are following.

Followers: fans, followers. It is the person who followed him.

Likes: That is, the liked tweets mentioned in the "Interactive Ways" section above will be displayed on the personal homepage and will be public.

On the right side of the personal homepage, there is an expanded menu:

Block, hide

Blocking: Block, B. When this person offends you, you can block the other person. The blocked person cannot follow, private message, comment on you, cannot see your personal homepage, and you will not see the dynamics of the person blocked by you.

Hide: Mute. Hiding someone is similar to blocking, but only works on your side, and the other party can still view your personal homepage. Because Twitter does not open the API for hiding functions, the settings for hiding people in the Twitter web version and official client cannot be synchronized to third-party clients. However, third-party clients have developed similar functions (even more powerful), such as Tweetbot's Mute, Twitterrific's Muffle, and the differences between official and third-party clients will be mentioned below.

Lock tweet: Due to some concerns or considerations, some people may lock tweet, and set it in "Settings-Privacy and Security-Protect My Tweets". After setting, the tweets will change from "public tweets" to "protected tweets". When you lock and push:

Your Tweets (including replies) can only be seen by your Followers and (followers), and they cannot retweet or quote their Retweet. When the new person intends to follow you, you can choose to allow or deny.

Third-party search engines like Google and DuckDuckGo will not index your Tweets. Your Tweets will only be indexed by you and your followers using the Twitter site search.

Basic etiquette

This part is actually similar to Weibo, but let’s mention:

Simply describe your information in the Bio (introduction) of your personal profile: hobbies, status, and political orientation will be more conducive to attracting others to pay attention to you, and it will also help to avoid unnecessary quarrels.

Replying to the fo will make you polite, but it is not necessary.

Reply directly when communicating with people, not quotes + comments, let alone traditional RT.

#不 #过分 #Use #hashtag

Don’t let your timeline be full of automated Tweets from IFTTT, Instagram, Swarm, etc.

List function

Unlike the grouping function of Weibo, you can add them to a Twitter list without following them.

You can create a list yourself, or you can follow and subscribe to lists created by others.

The list is divided into a public list and a private list, and the private list will not be seen by others.

Like here is a list I created that collects various App official accounts and their developers. I have summarized them in the List so that they will not be disturbed by various marketing information on the main timeline, but I want to know The latest news can still be read in the List.

Search skills

Twitter has a set of search syntax that can make search results more precise. For example, use from: to specify the searched user and only search his tweets, for example: from:@realDonaldTrump only search for Trump's Tweets.

If you don’t like to use grammar, Twitter has an advanced search interface that allows you to choose the items you want to search to refine your search results:

Twitter advanced search

If you like to use grammar, here is a compiled grammar diagram (from here):

Choose client

Because the APIs that can be used by third-party clients are limited, many functions can only be implemented in the official client.

Official client (including web client)

You can directly view the vote and time. For example, the vote can only be displayed as a URL in the third-party client, but the official client will directly display the result.

In-line video playback is possible, and the third-party client needs to load it.

The search is stronger, you can use advanced search syntax.

There are ads. If there is "If you missed it", you will guess your taste and adjust your timeline with self-righteousness.

Official client

Third-party client

Generally speaking, third-party clients have better designs, such as Tweetbot on iOS and Flamingo on Android, with excellent design and better use of the features of the operating system itself.

Synchronize timeline reading position, whether through TweetMarker or the method built by the client. If Twitter is your important source of information, this feature will help you read every Tweet without fail.

The degree of customization is high, various gestures, Tab positions, etc., will have a strong dependence after getting used to it.

With advanced blocking function, you can filter out unwanted tweets through various grammars.

Generally speaking, use the official client first, and it’s not too late to find the corresponding third-party client when you have pain points.
