Course Description

Twitter is one of the leading social networking sites on the Web. It enables its users to send and read messages called “tweets”.

    Ifeoma Ndefo Nigeria I learnt how to open a twitter account; build up following i.e select who and who to follow so that in return, they could follow me back.Most amazingly I learnt that I could link my twitter account to my Facebook and blog. I also understood that the twitter is a micro blogging network and that information on twitter is best kept public. 2015-10-07 12:10:07
