ITEMS


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.



 


https://twitter.com/signup

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.
