Some people cannot live without microblogging, they constantly write their messages and respond to strangers, spending a lot of time, others write from time to time, and still others believe that microblogging is a waste of time. However, there is not a single person who has not heard of microblogging at all. The most popular short messaging platform has been Twitter for several years now.

Why is Twitter so good? Firstly, the audience of this particular resource for microbloggers is the largest in the world. Secondly, the system has a flexible interface. Thirdly, you can publish messages on Twitter not only on its official website, but also using client programs, as well as via SMS.


After registering in the system, take a moment to set it up. Set the region and time zone, indicate if you want to see sensitive materials (for example, nude photos) in the feed. If you want to have access to Twitter anytime, anywhere, pay attention to the clients for your smartphone, and also write your phone number in the appropriate section of the settings.

Then you should start designing your page. Be sure to upload an avatar. Most of the popular microbloggers prefer to post their real photo. At the very least, this allows visitors to your page to immediately understand whose posts they are reading. Take your time for the "Design" section in the settings. You can choose a pre-created theme (now there are about 20 available from the settings panel) or go to the Themeleon service located at and modify your favorite theme to your liking. It is possible to create your own theme by uploading a background image and choosing a background color and a theme color. Note that the appearance of the Home page and the Me page is different.


When you are happy with the look of your twitter, you can start filling it. Before writing your first post, decide on the topic of the entire microblogging. The most popular are personalized accounts, that is, those where the person's identity is visible behind the messages. People are interested in knowing where you have been, what you saw, what you think and what you dream about.

Don't forget to use the option to attach media files. Message like “Evening. It's raining outside the window. Boring”is uninformative and uninteresting. Many people at the same moment have evening and rain outside the window, some may also be bored. But if you go to the window, take a photo and attach it to the message, you will surely be remembered by the readers. Firstly, hardly anyone sees from the window exactly the same picture that you see, and secondly, visual information is always remembered better than verbal information.

Always remember about your microblogging. If you are riding the subway and see a funny teenager, if they brought you soup with a fly in a cafe, if you witnessed a flash mob on the street, take pictures, take pictures, write about it. There are many amazing things around. Share what you see with others and others will share with you.


A lot of accounts quickly become "dead" due to the fact that a person is simply disappointed in the microblogging service. When, having written a dozen or so messages, he does not receive a single reply or retweet, he often abandons the page. And completely in vain. To get feedback, you need to perform a number of specific actions.

First, find people who are close in spirit. Use the built-in search engine. After visiting a person's page, read a few of his tweets, see his personal information. Pay attention to how long he has been registered in the system (this data is indicated under his avatar), how regularly he writes messages. If you are interested in his thoughts, feel free to click the "Read" button. You can unsubscribe from a tweeter who has become uninteresting at any time.

Find pages of federal and regional media to stay up-to-date on events in the country and in the world. Famous people regularly write messages on Twitter. Finding their pages is not that difficult. Follow the celebrities and you will get to know them from a new perspective, and the dialogues in the comments to posts are often more interesting than the tweets themselves.

When you see a message in the feed that you agree with, click the "Retweet" button. It will appear in your feed. The author will certainly be pleased with such an action. It is highly likely that he will go to your page and become your follower (follower). If you have something to add or object to, click the "Reply" button and share your thoughts. Twitter is a social network, and there is a place for exchange of opinions and heated discussions.
