-----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

February 15, 2011,0215.shtm


1. Comment: Twitter Lingo - Twitter, the popular microblogging

website, continues to grow every day. With millions of users,

Twitter has become the go-to platform to exchange information and

get real-time updates with many things going on in the world. The

usage of Twitter in the immigration law community is also

exploding; immigration law attorneys, professionals, advocates,

students and elected officials are joining the conversation. It

is time for you to join as well!

The first step is to create a Twitter account. Sign up here.

Then, start to follow other Twitter-ers (your "following"), and

others will start to follow you (your "followers").

Before you start "tweeting", you should get familiar with some

lingo used on Twitter. To mention other Twitter-ers in your

message, simply write "@" followed by their username. For

instance, if you want to mention ILW.COM, just add "@ilwcom" in

your tweet. If you like what a fellow Twitter-er said, and you

want to forward it to your followers, you can re-tweet or "RT"

the message. Simply add the letters "RT" and the original

Twitter-er's username to the tweet. For example, you can re-tweet

one of our tweets by saying: "RT @ilwcom:..." Another useful

symbol in Twitter is the hashtag, which is represented as "#".

Hashtags are keywords or trending topics, which allow your tweet

to show up on search queries and are also used to categorize

messages. For example, if your tweet is about the DREAM Act, you

can add "#dreamact" to your tweet and it will come up in queries

and also will help make the DREAM Act a trending topic in

Twitter. RTs, mentions, and hashtags are the main symbols in

Twitter. We hope you can start using them soon, and don't forget

to follow us on Twitter.
