This weeks cool tool is one for Twitter newbies. Navigating the language of Twitter can be a minefield, you’ve got the RT’s the MT’s the HT’s the hashtags, the @replies and more. It can be enough to scare people off before they’ve got started.
Beyond those more obvious examples there are multiple other terms that pop up in Tweets and that’s where this weeks cool tool ‘Twittonary’ comes in handy.
Here’s how it works
- Visit the Twittonary website
- Input the Twitter term that you want to define
- Click ‘search’
- Now Twitter presents you with a list of results. The one that struck me here was ‘Quacking’ but of course it does describe a hashtag too.
This is in no way a comprehensive guide to the language. The first term I searched ‘Subtweet’ returned no results. It is however being constantly updated and it’s worth having a look at some of the terms stored in the app. There were a few there that I’d never heard of.
And if you find something new yourself you can even submit a word to the dictionary.
If you are a Twitter newbie or are nervous of getting started sign up for my A Beginners Guide To Twitter online course starting on 10th of June. More info here.
