    I'm well into it now. It's basically a newsfeed for people you actually give a fudge about hearing from. Recommended people to follow? I follow the sports journos. Loads of spurs players, fighters politics, comedians. It's great!!

    I don't really tweet. It's great to see news you actually are interested in though.

    I have twitter and have the likes of Thudd etc but what I do not get is

    What is a retweet? What is a hash tag for?

    Basically I dont know what the terminology used for twitter all mean. Anyone got a user guide to assist?

    A retweet is when you forward a tweet by someone else to your followers.

    Hash tags can be for several things. Makes it easier to search for tweets on a particular subject. Sometimes used for humorous effect.

    # tags are used to associate your tweet with others on a similar subject.

    Example "today it's not raining for once" #weather will link your tweet with others commenting and using a similar hashtag.

    That way if people search for 'weather' on twitter they will see your tweet linked to that hashtag.

    I consider it a win when they don't reply.. which is often. ](*,)

    Ideally i'd like a battle but they don't seem up for it. I am not abusive, at all.

    Journos must love twitter. It fills their day with "work" and provides them with crap for their "articles".
