Homepage Feed

When you log into the Twitter homepage, it will take you immediately to your Twitter feed. This is where you will see updated tweets from the users you follow. Tweets immediately appear on the Twitter feed as users post them.

Writing a tweet #1

On the same Homepage of your Twitter Feed, you can write your tweet. On the left side of the page, there is a camera and map icon. The camera allows you to upload a picture & the map allows you to attach a location to the tweet. The number inside next to the “Tweet” button shows you how many more characters are still available to be written in your Tweet. You can tweet a maximum of 140 characters (spaces included).
