Twitter This!

A Tweet may contain photos, GIFs, videos, links, and text. The screen will look different depending on what platform you are using (android, apple, personal computer, etc.)

How to Tweet.

  • Type your Tweet into the compose box at the top of your Home timeline, or click the Tweet button in the top navigation bar. 
  • You can include up to 4 photos, a GIF, or a video in your Tweet. Click the Tweet button to post the Tweet to your profile 
What is a Retweet? 
Someone else Tweet that you share publicly is known as a Retweet. This is a great way to pass along news and interesting discoveries on Twitter. You have the option to add your own comments before Retweeting. When using Twitter's Retweet icon, your Retweet or Quote Tweet will reference the Tweet you are sharing. When someone replies to your Retweet, the author of the original Tweet will not be automatically added to the conversation. If you want to include the author of the original Tweet, you will need to mention their username. In addition to sharing other’s Tweets on Twitter, you can Retweet your own Tweet. This function is particularly useful when you want to re-post one of your older Tweets because it is relevant again.

How to use hashtags.

  • A hashtag—written with a # symbol—is used to index keywords or topics. This function was created on Twitter, but has crossed over and can now be used all over the world of social medial, including YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. 
  • People use the hashtag symbol (#) before a relevant keyword or phrase in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter search. Our chapter hashtag is #NHWT 
  • Clicking or tapping on a hashtagged word in any (social media) message shows you other Tweets that include that hashtag. Hashtags can be included anywhere in a Tweet. 
How to protect your Tweets. 
When you sign up for Twitter, your Tweets are public by default. Public Tweets, are visible to anyone, whether or not they have a Twitter account. Protected Tweets, may only be visible to your Twitter followers. Should you choose to protect your Tweets, you can do so through your account settings.

  • Go to your Privacy and safety settings. 
  • In the Tweet privacy section, check the box next to Protect my Tweets. 
  • Click the Save button at the bottom of the page. You will be prompted to enter your password to confirm the change.

A March Note from President Carrie

Hello ladies!

How is it mid March already?! Not that I mind, because that means planting season is upon us! While I have been thinking of my veggie garden and all the pretty flowers I want to grow, I'm also thinking of how can we grow our chapter. How can we get that spark back to do more for our community? I can't do it alone, nor can the board. We need you! We need your ideas, big or small. It doesn't hurt to try something new! When you do, you usually end up learning new things! While I'm on the topic of new things.... Have you ever considered a board position? We need you!! We are hoping to get some new members on the board. It's really hard to run a chapter without a board! So please, please think about taking that little step outside your comfort zone...I did!! It has been a true learning experience for me, and opened my eyes towards personal development. We are having a late start (time got away from us!!) in recruiting, and we should have a new board ready to go at our APRIL lets get our chapter growing, in membership and in personal growth. Lets finish the year out strong!

Much love, Carrie
