Sending an Update in twitter There are a few folks with Twitter accounts who are “read-only” users: they follow others, but they don’t post any updates themselves. That’s fine, I guess, if you’ve simply got nothing to say, but few of us are that tongue-tied. I assume you signed up with Twitter because you’ve got some things to 
share, so the next few sections take you through a few ways that you can do just that.

Before you get to that, you may be wondering exactly what you should be posting. Are there any rules, official or unofficial, for the type of content that you can send? Fortunately, the answer to that question is a resounding “No!” If what you have to say isn’t illegal, then go ahead and say it. Of course, you only have 140 characters to work with, so Twitter is no place for the long-winded. 

The sheer compactness of a typical Twitter missive means that although the content is as varied as the 
people who send it, tweets do tend to fall into a few basic categories.

Sending an update using the Twitter site

There are multiple ways you can post updates to Twitter, and you learn about most of them elsewhere in the book. However, the most common posting method is still the Twitter site itself, so run through the steps:

1.  Sign in to your Twitter account.

 2.  Click Home.

 3.  Use the large What are you doing? text box to type your 

update. As you type, the number above the right edge of the text box counts down from 140 to tell you how 
many characters you have left. There are three things to note about this countdown:

l  When the count dips below 20, the number color changes to Maroon.
1 When the count dips below 10, the number color changes to Red.

1   When the count dips below 0, the number color stays Red, but it also sprouts a negative sign, and Twitter disables the Update button, You need to get the count back to 0 or more before Twitter allows you to post.

4.  Click Update. Twitter posts the update and adds it to the feed of every person who’s following you.
