Twitter Symbols Make Your Tweets Visually Engaging!

Are you looking for a way to engage your Twitter followers in a fun and exciting way? Twitter Symbols make it easy to do so and there are tons of different symbols you can use to express any mood or make a point with your tweet. To use some unique Twitter Symbols visit: Twsym.com

Once on the site just doubleclick the character and press Ctrl+C, then open your Twitter account and press Ctrl+V and voila- symbols!

There are three primary symbols used more often than others on Twitter; the “@”, “RT”, and “#” symbols.

The “@” is used to address or reference someone. For example, if someone wanted to reply to someone, they would preface their post with “@twittonary” (or whatever their username is). The “@” symbol could also be used later in the post to reference someone (ie: “I am going surfing with @twittonary”).

The “RT” is short for “ReTweet”. You would use “RT” if you wanted to pass on what someone else has already stated. The typical syntax is “RT @username: [original post]” where the @username is the username of the person who original made the statement. An example of this would be: “RT @cnn: Read about the daily news.

The “#” is used to tag an event, meme, or other keyword to group Twitter posts together. This is also known as a “hashtag”. This allows people to use http://search.twitter.com to search for posts on given topics, or tag a group they are in discussions about. (i.e. #superbowl).

Whether you are tweeting for fun or business, Twitter Symbols make it easier to express what you need to say while helping you achieve your under 140 character requirements.

How Much Do You Twitterize?

By now we already know that Twitter definitely has a language all its own and as time goes by we tend to abbreviate more and more on Twitter or create new words to make sure we don’t go over that dreaded 140 character limit. Twittonary was created to help those confused with all this unique lingo and allow people to share their Twitter words with others. So, no more being confused by all those twitterized sentences. Still need a little help? Check out some of the fun new twords just recently added:

Twitterize: To turn a word or phrase into Twitter-based language.

tweesciple: Higher level of being a follower. A follower who constantly retweets your tweets.

twoodle: to tweet aimlessly during a boring, foolish activity.

fa-bweeting: Means face-booking and tweeting at the same time

The NEW Twitter… Coming Soon!

Times are changing and Twitter is adapting to be more interactive, more social, and easier for the masses to enjoy! Check out the cool new video and new features we can expect to see in the coming weeks.

New design

You will now find @mentions, retweets, searches, and lists just above your timeline – creating a single, streamlined view on the left of the screen. On the right, you can see the features you’re familiar with, including whom you recently followed and who recently followed you, favorites, and Trending Topics.


Ability to view photos, videos, and other media content

Now, it’s easy to see embedded photos and videos directly on Twitter, thanks to partnerships with Dailybooth, DeviantArt, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, Twitvid, USTREAM, Vimeo, Yfrog, and YouTube.


Discover related content

When you click a Tweet, the details pane shows additional information related to the author or subject. Depending on the Tweet’s content, you may see: @replies, other Tweets by that same user, a map of where a geotagged Tweet was sent from, and more.


Mini profiles

You can click a @username to see a mini profile without navigating from the page, which provides quick access to account information, including bio and recent Tweets.


Rollout timing

These changes will roll out as a preview over the next several weeks. During the preview, you’ll be able to switch back and forth so you have time to grow accustomed to the way things work. Eventually, everyone will have the updated version of Twitter.com.
